Big finishes set up finals campaigns

East Gambier is in a great position to take the win over Mil Lel ahead of day two in the Barber Shield at Allan Scott Park.

Mil Lel started the round batting slowly, getting all out for 67 runs.

William Rowland and Jarrod Sanders were the only batsmen to register some serious runs for the team.

Alex Hentschke and Emerson Marks had a great day bowling as they combined for eight wickets in the innings.

In the Doggies batting innings opener Dion Stratford gave his side a great start, making 25 runs.

Coming into day two Alex Hentschke and Marc Roberts will begin the day at the crease with the Doggies sitting at 7/79.

Penola v West Gambier

Penola has got a big task ahead of it on day two after West Gambier’s massive batting innings last Saturday.

On day one West batted for the entire day, finishing 9/264 after 80 overs.

The Roos’ batting list had an all round great day with nearly everyone making over 20 runs.

West’s Sujith Nikethana had a great day at the crease making 42 before getting out.

Another top performer for the Roos was captain Bray Stephenson who spent most of the day on the field making 36 off 109 balls.

For Penola Michael Waters finished the innings with five wickets, a team best.

Penola’s openers will have to set the tone early for the team on day two if they want to chase down West’s massive run total.

Heading into day two at McCorquindale Park Penola will have to make some magic happen if it has a chance of finishing the season on a high and taking down the first placed Roos.

North Sportsman’s v South Gambier

North Sportsman’s will come into day two with the bat in hand and in prime position to take the victory before finals begin.

Demons opener Robert Drenthen had a great innings for South, making 53 runs.

South youngster Jed Sims stuck around for most of the innings scoring 28 runs not out.

Another youngster for the Demons Kobi Maxwell made some well needed runs late in the innings for South, making 26.

South finished its innings all out for 146.

In North Sportsman’s batting innings South got an early wicket with North’s Nicolas Brown falling for one.

After the fast start the Demons struggled to find a wicket with the Tigers finishing day one at 3/132.

North Sportsman’s will resume play at the crease on day two with Elliot Fisher and Nick McInerney heading back out to continue the innings.

The Tigers will be chasing 14 runs on day two with it looking very hard for North Sportsman’s to lose in this position.
