Euroa puts its season back on track

Euroa returned to the Memorial Oval in Euroa on Saturday with its sights set on an outright victory that would propel them above the pack of ‘middle of the road’ teams surrounding them on the ladder.
The magpies began the day continuing on batting three wickets down, just in front of the Kyabram first innings score of 102.
The plan was simple (although effecting outright wins rarely are): bat quickly, get 150 in front before the tea break, and send Kyabram back in for a difficult afternoon’s batting.
Rarely would a captain’s plan come so perfectly to fruition as it did on Saturday afternoon.
Despite losing one of last week’s not-out batsmen Andrew Crosbie (33) for the addition of a solitary run, and the erratic Ben Jones for the same contribution, the side was steadied when Brad Gleeson joined Lucas Paul out in the middle.
