YMCC - C grade

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

The YMCC C Grade have suffered defeat to Greta on Victoria Park Number 2 Oval. 

The Lakers batted first and added 15 runs for the first wicket before Pearn fell for 5. 

Tom Irvine added 5 before also falling to have the Lakers at 2 for 21. Wickets continued to fall with Peters and True both out on 33; before Pickering and then Sharp fell and the Lakers were in trouble at 6 for 45.

However, a solid partnership between Sean McLarty 20 and Dennis Phibbs 28 recovered the sinking ship. 

Both wickets fell on 89 and then the wickets of Jett Peters and Thomson saw the Lakers all out for 99 off 25 overs.

Rod Peters and Jason Sharp opened the bowling and both had effect with Sharp taking 2 for 9 off 8 overs and Peters 1 for 12 off 5 overs. 

The Lakers used 9 bowlers after Greta had passed the Lakers total and continued to bat on making 4 for 173 off their allotted 36 overs. 

Cory Pearn claimed the fourth wicket taking 1 for 37 off 5 overs. 

The C Grade team will be looking for continuity with a large amount of players used thus far in the season and make a finals charge in 2019.
