While Tatura’s A-grade could not get up, the club still remains in contention for the Clyde Young Shield.

While Tatura’s A-grade could not get up, the club still remains in contention for the Clyde Young Shield.

Winning the toss and choosing to bat against Undera, it was a long list of minor contributions that brought the side the victory.

Six batsmen reached double figures although the top score was just 13, which came from Blake Armstrong late in the innings.

Tatura nearly saw out all of its 80 overs, falling short by just five balls.

Paul Mahoney and Peter Watt helped Tatura to a stable start, before Glenn Campbell struck by dismissing three of the top five batsmen.

But Tatura ploughed on to post 111 before ensuring there would be an early finish to the match.

Terry Olney brought his A-grade game to the final, clearing out Undera’s batsmen as he finished with match winning figures of 5-14.

But the contributions of Heath Fidock (2-16), Louis Worm (2-17) and Jarred Panther (1-7) could not be discounted in Tatura progressing to the next week of finals.

In an even top six, Karramomus knocked off higher-ranked Euroa in a low-scoring victory.

Karramomus made the right decision after winning the toss to send Euroa in to bat at Memorial Oval, with the home side only able to make 74.

Euroa never looked comfortable at the crease with Jake Keating and Chris Crouch in formidable form for the Bloods.

Crouch cleaned up the top order cheaply as he finished with bowling figures of 4-17, while Keating (4-16) continued on with the momentum.

Euroa’s Will Murray did his best to try and keep his side in the contest, with a superb return of 5-7 from his 15 overs.

On Memorial Oval’s bowler friendly pitch, Adam Bovell top scored for Karramomus with 27.

The Bloods posted 101 before Euroa went in for a slightly improved second innings as it declared at 9-93.

But the damage had already been done as Karramomus looks towards a match against Tatura next week.

Not much separated Katandra and Kyabram as the Redbacks secured a 26-run victory.

Patrick Parsons made sure there was a prominent figure at the top of the order on his way to 47, while Glenn Hart consolidated the innings through the middle, with 45 from captain Jason Parsons seeing the side to 200.

Eagles bowler Andrew Nicholls took a five-wicket haul, while opponent Angus McKenzie was the key bowler for Kyabram.

Katandra’s Zane Thorne showed plenty of fight for his 41, but the Eagles were dismissed for 174.
