• Roos skip their way to Premiership Glory

    premiers
    Saturday we ventured to Ron Evans oval in Portarlington for the BPCA A Grade Grand Final that saw us take on Ocean Grove. With mother nature wanting to make her presence felt, we finally got some play after an hour and half delay. Losing the toss, and 24 overs lost for the day, Ocean Grove won the toss and elected to bowl first. Opening with Ned Cooper and Jacimovic it wasn’t the best start for the lads as Jacimovic departed early for three after being caught out, which brought Sam Weight to the crease. It was important that Sam stayed at the crease and the pair manage to build a decent partnership, and that they certainly did. They batted brilliantly, both showing great patience along with some great cricket shots, however it was Sam that fell next after being caught out for 20 and the score became 2-75, a partnership worth 68. However the pressure of Grand Finals can be underestimated and a collapse occurred with Dittloff (0) Kerr (2) Norman (4) and Simon Umbers (2) and the score quickly fell to 6-117 but thanks to Brett Venables the pair saw the day out and the overnight score became 6-138. The game was certainly in the balance when the boys turned up Sunday to bat the remaining 24 overs, and its certainly funny how momentum can change. A defensive shot back to the bowler from Ned Cooper saw him end up with a boundary as a throw back to the stumps to the batters end where Ned had not left the crease managed to ricochet off the stumps and ran off to the boundary for four. Then another similar circumstance happened a few days later and then all of a sudden the momentum shifted our way. Venables added a very valuable partnership with Ned, adding 31 himself, whilst hanging around long enough to see Ned reach triple figures, before he was out adjudged lbw. Ned finally fell for a sensational 127 as he was caught out a few overs shy of the end of the innings. It was a great display that displayed maturity, patience and skill. We managed to bat out 23 overs before we declared an over to go for 9dec 221.   With 49 overs to Bat, Ocean Grove required 222 to win and we decided to open up with the usual suspects Dale Kerr and Dylan Taylor. Both bowled very well and it was Dale that struck first as he sent the stumps flying and Paul Jubber was on his way, bringing the score to 1-10. Dylan then thought he would join the party when he got Sam Jubber out caught for 18. With the score at 2-33, we then kept the foot down and before you knew it the boys were well on top as the Ocean Grove top order crumbled under immense pressure from the roos, with ball and in the field and they soon saw themselves at 8-86. With Partnerships of 19 and 55 for the ninth and tenth wickets making the scoreboard look half respectable, it sure was a comprehensive victory as we bowled our way to a 61 run victory bowling Ocean Grove for 160. Dale Kerr finished the year with another three scalps claiming figures 17-6-3-48, Dylan was the leading wicket taker with 15-1-4-51. Venables chipped in with 2-21 off 9 while Cian claimed the other one with 1-18 off 2. Ned Cooper was deservingly the winner of the Man Of The Match with his Brilliant 127. A Fantastic result for the club and the community and the club would like to thank everyone for their support on the weekend and throughout the year. That’s it now for the season, look forward to seeing you all around the club again next season as we strive back to back.

    A Grade hosted Drysdale in the Semi Final and losing the toss, we were sent into the field. Opening with the usual suspects, it was a brilliant start with the ball as a fired up Dale Kerr ripped through the top order. Malcolm was the first two go as he was caught out for a duck, Next was Hambrook who was trapped in front for 9, foilowed by Hallam who was also caught out and all of a sudden it was 3-21. However the opposition fought back hard, put their heads down and started building a handy and much needed partnership. In fact they put on 90 before finally the breakthrough came when Venables got Mallett caught out. Cutajar was the next to fall shortly as Venables got him trapped in front. With the score at 5-126, we then had our tails up and charged home with the Hawks crumbling, losing 5-37 to being all out for 163. Dale Kerr finished the innings off, claiming yet another five wicket haul with 5-64 off 26. Dylan Finished with 2-22 (16.2) and Venables 2-25 (15)  were the other main contributors with the ball.

     

    After surviving four overs at the death, we then built on a good opening stand between Ned Cooper and Jacimovic. Jaca was the enforcer with some lovely cricket shots and Ned just ticked things over. However it was Jacimovic that found himself bowled for 33.taking the score to 1-66. Sam Weight then joined the skipper at the crease and also did a good job adding 30 to the score before he was trapped lbw for 14, with the score 2-96. This brought Tyler Dittloff to the crease and he made sure the runs kept on flowing and put on a very nice 57 run stand with the skipper before he was bowled, also for 33. Dale and Ned then finished the innings off with Ned finishing 63* and Dale 5*

     

    The win sees the boys progress through to the Grand Final against Ocean Grove @ Portarlington 1:00pm

  • Roos too good for bulls in T20 clash

    Thursday night at Carpet House Oval was the place to be with Anglesea taking on Barrabool in a T20. Dylan Taylor captain the side and won the toss and elected to bat. Opening the attack was Ned Cooper and Stephen Jacimovic,and they got off to a brilliant start with the run rate hovering around 10 for the majority of the innings. However it was Jacimovic that fell first as he held out to a man at long off as the score became 1-77. Darcy Cooper managed only four with the bat before he found himself out caught. This brought Dale to the crease and along with Ned put on a further 49 before Dale also was caught out. So with the score at 3-146, Ty Norman came to the crease and along with Ned, kept the score tickling along nicely and saw the teams total pass 200 when Ned eventually fell on the second last ball of the innings for a sensational 128 off 73 delivers. Ned’s innings consisted of 11 fours and  3 sixes. So at the end of the 20 overs the roos finished on 4-202 with Norman 11* (12) and Venables 1* (1)   The bowling was shared around with nine individual bowlers. Dylan opened up with Dale and it was Dale that struck in his second over, bowling Findlay for 3, with the score 1-16. That soon became 2-26 thanks to Aaron Lindsay as he got Grigg caught out for 18. The third wicket saw 43 runs added but it was the inclusion of Jacimovic that claimed the wicket of Bissett, which brought the score to 3-69. Lindsay then got his second wicket getting the bloke out caught and the score became 4-88. Then another couple quick wickets, all caught off the bowling of Lindsay, saw the bulls slump to 6-110. They managed to bat the remaining of the overs out without the loss of any more wickets but fell 65 runs short at 6-137. The win now sets up a semi final clash with rivals Jan Juc with the details to be confirmed. Well done boys!!
