Euroa defends meagre total

LATE PARTNERSHIP: A late order partnership featuring Bart Davidson (featured) helped steady the sinking ship during Euroa’s C Grade game at the memorial oval.

ON Saturday at the Euroa Memorial Oval, C grade took on Central Park who are currently holding a finals spot that the Euroa boys are keen to take. 

On what appeared to be ideal conditions for cricket Euroa won the toss and decided to bat. 

The Central Park bowlers were on top early with great line and length and some handy assistance from the pitch. 

Euroa were floundering at 5 for 19 before some late order partnerships by Linton Colcough, Bart Davidson, Mitch Gleeson and Andrew Crosbie tried to steady the sinking ship.

More consistent and extremely accurate bowling and Euroa batting without any luck caused a late order leg before collapse to being all out for a disappointing 72. 

With finals cricket and their season on the line Euroa had nothing to lose and with an explosive opening bowling display by Brad Gleeson and Ryley Bjorksten, Euroa was able to get itself back in the game with Central Park struggling at 5 for 34, chasing the small total.
