Rainy finale for GCL
THE Leongatha and District Under 16 team
made it all the way to the grand final in the
Gippsland Cricket League Sunday competition
last Sunday but they found Warragul a little too
strong on the day, at the Korumburra Turf.
The match started late, after a 25 minute delay
for rain but was ultimately played out in full with
Warragul setting the home side 7/239 off their
The truth of it was that all of the Warragul
batsmen made runs, three of them with half cen-
turies including the diminutive wicket keeper
Jai Newcombe, who regularly advanced down
the wicket to take the Leongatha bowlers back
over their heads on his way to 69 including eight
Warragul had started well with their openers,
Alphy Hosie 52 and Mathew Bow 55 contribut-
ing to a 117 opening foray.
Several hard chances went to hand but ulti-
mately got away until Jack Hume throwing in
from the deep, and Aaron Bardwell combined
for a much-needed breakthrough.
But wickets were few and far between, Jacob
Lamers and Jack Hume the best with two each.
In fact, Warragul looked set to go well beyond
239 at one stage, so it was a hopeful Leongatha
team that turned its attention to batting.
But it wasn’t to be. There was a regular fall
of wickets early until Bardwell 30 and Lamers
29 stuck around for some respectability but ul-
timately Leongatha fell well short, all out for 133
off 38.4 overs; M Blanch 4/4, C Wans 2/23 and C
Serong 2/24, the best of the bowlers.
In the GCL Senior Grand Final, played at Scor-
pion Park in Leongatha last Sunday, Sale-Maffra
won the toss and batted first in a topsy-turvy in-
nings that went for 43.1 overs after a delayed
start due to rain.
The crucial batsman for them was Jack Ri-
etschel who made 73 and was the last man to
fall, figuring in several useful partnerships down
the order as they put on the worthy total of 191
batting first in difficult conditions.
Former Kangaroos’ footballer, Stuart Ander-
son made a reasonable fist of it scoring 34 at the
top of the order while wicketkeeper Alex Mellor
made 39. Traralgon’s T Garner 3/39, L Stock-
dale 2/28 and M Warne 2/33 were the best of the
In reply, Traralgon and District’s bats simply
couldn’t settle and it was Rietschel who did the
damage again with 3/16, easily earning man of
the match honours as Traralgon slumped all out
for 139 off 30 overs.
GCL Under 18s
A premiership winning, 103-run partnership
between Sean Masterson 63 and Zane Harper
44 in good time saw Warragul overhaul the target
of 171 set them by Sale, off 50 overs, on the Le-
ongatha Turf, again in a match delayed by rain.
Warragul made the required runs, seven down,
after only 37.4 overs.
They claimed the GCL Under 18 title.
All Gippsland XI

Leongatha and District Cricket Association Under 16 representative, Jacob Lamers, works
hard to produce a false shot from the Warragul batsmen in the regional grand final played
on the turf at Korumburra last Sunday. m400717
