• C Grade Division 1
A FIVE-WICKET haul from Korum-
burra’s Ash Meade has led the Cobras into
the C Grade Division One Grand Final.

ing six maidens to bowl the Diggers out for
110 in 42 overs.
Aaron Brinksma was also handy with
3/15 off 11 overs including four maidens

including five maidens.
Earlier, a consistent effort with the bat
saw the Cobras post 7/199 off 60 overs.

Run fest at Wonthaggi
Phillip Island triumphed over Wonthaggi
Club in a match dominated by bat at Won-
thaggi Secondary College.
The Sharks batted first and Russell
‘Huck’ Cleeland and Conor Epifano start-
ed well with a 70-run opening stand, be-
fore Epifano was caught for 26.
Huck brought up his half century and
was caught for 51, which brought Jarrod
Black and Liam Keating together.
The pair tore the Club bowling attack
apart with a 143-run partnership.
Joel Brann continued to dig in for Club
and was rewarded with the wicket of Black
for 79, and picked up another couple of
wickets before having Keating caught for
He finished with 4/47 off 13 overs.
The Island finished with 6/285 off 60
overs and looked in the box seat to secure
But Club opener Ian Barnes had other
ideas, blasting 73 to kick-start the innings.
He combined for a 95-run partnership
with Craig Harvey and looked set, before
Island bowler Chris Andrews stepped up.
He had Barnes caught and later removed
Harvey to swing the momentum back in
the Sharks’ favour.
With spinner John Johnston tightening
the screws, the Island was back on track.
Chad Harvey (31) and Brann (30) did
their best to get Club across the line, but
the Island had the answers.
They departed and Johnston went on to
pick up the final two wickets and Club was
bowled out for 273 in the 59th over, ago-
nising close to the big target.
Andrews finished with 4/86 off 21 overs
and Johnston grabbed 3/52 off 12.1 overs.
