Penultimate Round Underway

In Cricket Southern Bayside it was Round 13 across the multi-format grades and Round 2 of the Women’s T20 competition.

In the Men’s Championship Division the top 6 sides are playing off against one another in the fight for the final 3 positions available with only Chelsea and McKinnon out of contention.

Bentleigh (2nd) were sent in by Bonbeach (4th) where Bonnie captain Tom Smith again stepped up with the ball (4/67), Smith is the competitions leading wicket taker with 37 wickets, heading team mate Dan Mueller with 26. Dan Richardson (45) leading the Demons batting line-up as they played out all but 3 overs to reach 167 in the days play. The Demons needing a win to possibly hang on to second spot, before meeting South Caulfield in the final home and away game in two weeks time. Bonbeach needing a win of their own to keep Hampton and Beaumaris at bay.

At Koornang Park, last year’s Division 1 Premiers Carnegie (3rd) made 210 after Beaumaris (6th) sent them into bat, that score thanks to Abhilash Sharma (143) who after a season of starts and plenty of 20’s and 30’s finally broke through with a big one much to the relief of his Negie team mates, Luke Klasen 3/42 for the Sharks as Beaumaris reached 0/22 at stumps on Day one, as they need the win to keep their finals chances alive.

At South Caulfield (1st), South’s were sent in reaching 285 with Josh O'Donnell (69) and Ed Tattersall (66*) as Dan Forbes picked up 3/42before being the first man out as Hampton (5th) batted out two overs to finish at 1/9. Chelsea (8th) were sent in by McKinnon (7th) and were all 92, with Matt Pearson picking up 4/8 from his 7 overs including 3 maidens, Dylan Thomas 3/28 and Boopa Munasinghe 3/36. McKinnon batting reaching 3/105 from 38 overs and will surely look for outright points next weekend.

In Division 1 there is still some juggling going on and Old Mentonians desperate to grab an outright and jump into the finals at the possible expense of Mentone who need to defeat the second placed Dragons, and in the final round top placed Murrumbeena, as Old Mentionians finish the season against seventh placed Cheltenham.

The Tigers have put themselves in a good position for those points as they reached 1/62 after dismissing Brighton District for 136 as Rick Jones (54) rescued the Dragons with 8 batsmen failing to reach double figures; Chris McCready 4/21 and Michael Churchill 3/58. At Murrumbeena young Xavier Ross (109) opened and finished with his maiden senior ton as the Beena’s reached 245, Anthony Reid (5/36) as Parkdalebatted out the remainder of the day to finish at 1/12. Old Mentonians rolled Middle Park for 69 and responded with Old Mentonians 5/189 in the remaining 42 overs with Dale Meyer (77*) andTim Litchfield (58). Whilst Cheltenham made 127, with Bayside 1/26 in reply.

In Division 2, Aspendale 280, with Ethan Wright (69) and Brett O'Hanlon (60) as the Pucca’s Calum Ravesi picked up 5/89, Parkdale United 1/1. Port Melbourne making 154 batting first with Harry Smeed 65* before absolutely embarrassing Clayton District as they were rolled for just 23, Tim Dale 6/13 and Jonathan Dunlea 3/9, Port keen for the outright and to be catapulated back into finals contention. At Boss James, Hampton sent in by Bentleigh making 110 andBentleigh 1/31 at stumps, whilst Bonbeach, also sent in at home, made 103, as South’s Oliver Hills picked up 4/11 and Sam Mahon 4/25, South Caulfield 2/53 in reply.

Parkdale’s Sascha Pribil (30) top scoring as they reached 2/142 and defeated Aspendale 102, with the Dale’s Abbey Samild 3/21. Whilst East Malvern Tooronga 5/148 defeated the inexperienced Bentleigh (83). Claudia Shemmell (55*) for EMT, with team mate Emma Arbuthnot picking up 4/12.
