Round 6 of the Ringwood and District Cricket Association concluded on Saturday with nearly all games getting a result, after being cut short by thunder storms last week.
In Trollope Shield, Montrose resumed at 7-98 against North Ringwood and it wasn’t long before Jay Stoikos (5-46) and Luke Ridgwell (4-45) improved on their bowling figures of last week to see Montrose dismissed for 125. In reply Ryan Peter-Budge (44no) held the Bulls innings together chasing this total to see them finish on 6-133 off 51 overs to take 1st innings points. Daniel Dimitriou (3-36) took the bowling honours for the Wolves.
Ainslie Park’s Mark Arnot (6-43) and Leigh Jones (4-49) insured Wantirna South’s innings did not get out of hand. The Devils resumed at 5-119 and only Sam Barnes (51no) weathered the storm to see them finish on 178. This total was easily chased down by the Parkers batsmen with Trent Sier (78no), Dillon Bettess (36no), Jake Tucker (36) and David Killen (26) all contributing to the final score of 2-180 off 42 overs.
When South Croydon resumed at 3-124, against Warrandyte, Michael King (76no) and Tom Edwards (51) put on 112 for the 4th wicket enabling the Bulldogs to finish on 6-230. A cautious start by Warrandyte saw Lloyd Williams (50) and Ben Taylor (29) put on 54 runs for the 1st wicket before Glynn James (5-32) started running through Warrandyte’s batting order, but they managed to hang on to finish on 9-135 thus drawing the game.
In the Saturday/Sunday game Lilydale won the toss and invited Bayswater Park to bat. David Mitchell (43), Andrew McKenzie (30) and James Court (23) got the Sharks off to a good start but once again they capitulated to the bowling of Ryan Smith (5-16) to be all out for 146. Lilydale will resume at 2-42 on Sunday.
