• 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.

    Season 2018/19 kicked off on the weekend with A grade starting its premiership defence with a one day game against Collendina. With the home side batting first after winning the toss, we elected to open with Dale and Ky Eskrigge, who was playing his first A grade game. Ky was quick to claim his first sclap and the teams first, as he found the woodwork and sending Norquay back to the shed for a duck. Dale then chipped in not long after with a double strike, first the prized wicket of Kavaliunas as he destroyed his castle and then repeated that to Ben Riccardo and all of a sudden it was 3-20. After the promising start by the boys, the home side regrouped and steadied with a handy fourth wicket stand. They managed to pile on 66 before Lee Edmonds broke through, claiming the wicket thanks to a Dale Kerr catch and the score became 4-86. The fifth wicket then chipped in and got settled and managed to put on 74 before Harper O’Keefe trapped the bloke in front for 23 and at the end of the 40 overs the home side finished 5-179.
    Then it was our turn to bat and we opened up with Ned Cooper and Stephen Jacimovic. These two put on a great opening stand, with both posting fifties. Jacimovic ended up getting bowled for 82, while Ned was caught for 62, had set up the side brilliantly for an opening round win. Ash Poulton, playing his first game back after returning from QLD found himself out for just three, leaving Sam Weight unbeaten on 15, while Tyler Dittloff finished unbeaten on six to get us passed the requiredtotal with six overs remaining. A great way to kick off the season.

     

    B Grade was sent in to bowl first and it was an electric start with the ball for the boys as we claimed three very early scalps to have Collendina on the back foot really early. Sam Kerr, filling in for Brent Smith was the destroyer claiming the first two scalps, caught and LBW, before Nick Swain, playing his first game for the club picked up his first, caught, and all of a sudden, it was 3-6. That soon became 4-27 when a good piece of fielding that saw Victor throw the ball over the stumps for Mark Eskrigge to take the bails saw the bloke run out. The fifth wicket then put on 50 but then Matty McGuane broke through and that started another mini collapse with matty picking up a second not to long after that, while Victor Morrow picked up the next bloke and all of a sudden it was 7-79. The eighth wicket then put on 56 but then swain came back into the attack and picked up two wickets without the opposition scoring, while jaron picked up the other and they were bowled out for 136. Swain the pick of the bowlers with 3-17 (8) followed by Sam Kerr 2-16 (8) and Mat McGuane 2-20 (8)
    Then it was our turn to bat and it wasn’t a good start with Victor falling, without troubling the scorers and Aaron Lindsay for just 1. However Darcy Cooper and Jaron Lengyel stuck around for a while and built the target up a bit and put on a good partnership but Jaron was eventually out for 19. Darcy then continued with Mick Harper, who is playing his first game for the club, and they were looking good however it was Darcy that fell next with a well made 62. Mark Eskrigge and Sam Kerr both made starts scoring 13 each which along with Mick unbeaten on 30 saw us pass the total required giving us a win first up in the B Grade

     

    C Grade won the toss and elected to bat. With a lack of batting depth there was a big reliance on the top order to make runs and that they did. Opening with the captain Mark Stoneham and Alan Hardman, the pair looked in control from the outset with both being very patient and waited for the bad ball and then accelerated when they needed too. They managed to see out 27 overs and brought up the century opening stand in the meantime before eventually Alby was out stumped in the 28th over for a well made 48. Jordan Bews were next in at three and along with Mark Stoneham put on a handy 51 run stand before bewsy was dismissed for seven. With a few late wickets including the wicket of Stoneham for a well made 95, we finished the innings at 5-189.

    Then it was our turn with the ball and opening the bowling was Bryce Stoneham and Tom Eskrigge, playing his first senior game. It was Tom that managed to get the breakthrough first after Alby took a juggling catch at first slip. Then Joash Sterry playing his first game for the club, came into the attack and got a wicket bowling the other opener for 43 and breaking a 41 run stand. Joash got another quickly while Darren Eskrigge claimed a couple quick ones from the other end and all of a sudden it was 5-88. Then the game got tense as the sixth wicket put on 66 and the game was slipping away from us before Bewy bowled the bloke. The next wicket put on another decent partnership and at this stage the game was all bar lost with the score at 6-1883 before Blincoe claimed theprized wicket of Evans for 89 and the score became 7-183. Five runs required, three wickets in hand heading into the final over Tom Eskrigge bowled brilliantly and claimed a triple wicket maiden to seal a remarkable win for the boys. Tommy finished with 4-37 (7) and clearly was the pick of the bowlers.

    A Great round to start the season with three wins from three games.

  • 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!!
