MDCC Round 15 Wrap 31/1/15 – 1/2/15



A closely fought game between Moe’s Tavern and our D6’s this week as their captain winning the toss and electing to bat. 

Our batters did a great job seeing that all 35 overs where batted out with the end total being 6 for 132. Jordan Walker (67) is continuing to tally up his runs this season and was backed up by Scott Long (43).

The bowlers did well to keep us in the game but a good knock from one of the opersition saw Moe’s Taven cross the line with 3 overs to spare ending 3 for 133. Matt Rush, Gregor Dryburgh & Jordan Walker all taking 1 wicket.



D5’s played Kotara this round and after winning the toss our captain elected to bat... a shaky start lead to the boys ending all out for 82 in 30.1 overs with Darren Haiser (21) the only batter to break the 20 mark.

But as the saying goes anything they can do we can do better was defiantly the motto our D5’s must have been playing to as they successful defended their total bowling Kotara out for 50. Daniel Crossley (5-4) & Darren Haiser (2-14) finished with impressive bowling figures.



What can be said about the game this week upon reading the results I think the winners for quickest game of the weekend have to go to our B5’s.

Losing the toss against Carrington Gravity Riders it did not seem to worry our lads as the managed to bowl Carrington out for 30. YES THAT’S RIGHT 30. All bowers must get a mention: Geoffrey Workman (5-13), Christopher Dunn (2-3), Drew Varnum (2-9) & Peter Jenner (1-5) outstanding...

The run chase went smoothly as you would imagine as the B5 Lions ended 1 for 33 in 11.3 overs. Ben King (14*) & Mark Diakiw (14*) the not out batsman...


A Grade

Merewether lost the toss against the Journeyman and bowled first .

A very strong opening spell from Lyle McGuigan (6-22) didn't give the Journeyman batsman much chance and with Chad White (4-8) backing him up. The Journeyman could manage only 52 runs.

The boys cruised to victory only loosing the 1 wicket with Brad Davies (32*) top scoring with Greggy Weller (15*) supporting.

After a disappointing loss last week the boys bounced back like they only know how .Well done boys you did the club proud.

Journeyman 10/52  V  Merewether 1/54

Patrick Fitzgerald (33) took the job of batting with the tailenders well and will little knocks between 10 & 20 from other batters a total of 10 for 205 was able to be reached.

DAY 1:

Stand in Skipper Troy Goodwin won the toss and elected to bat at our home Townson Oval this morning and a slow outfield made sure the running between the wickets was important.

It was defenatly hard work for the top order and at a sticky point in the match the score was 6-110 off 45 overs. Late order runs from Ben Egan (82*) and Mark Cameron (49) made sure a respectable total of 255 was reached in 83 overs. Other notable innings came from Dave Celep (34) & Pat Darwen (24) at a time the ball was dominating the bat.

With 7 overs left in the day the action was slow with the run chase but wily veteran Tim O'Neill was able to take two wickets in the last over of the day to have Newcastle City on the back foot ending 2-8 at stumps.
