BALNARRING has yet another opportunity for an outright victory after dominating Dromana on Saturday in Sub-District cricket.
Dromana won the toss and sent the Saints in to bat. It proved to be a pretty good decision when the Hoppers rolled the visitors for 168.
Tim Jessup top scored for the Saints with 40, taking the place of David Ross, who didn’t play.
Craig Dunlop was the pick of the bowlers for the Hoppers with 4/50 from 20 overs.
Dromana needed to capitalise with the bat and failed to do so, bowled out for 62 in 28 overs.
Jacob Cook was outstanding for the Saints, picking up 7/17 from 14 overs.
Dromana survived the last two overs of the day in their second innings and will resume at 0/1.
Carrum Downs is looking at a convincing win against neighbour Skye after the first day’s play.
Skye batted first and was bundled-out for just 108. Stuart Swift was the best of the Cougars’ bowlers with 3/25.
In reply, Carrum Downs is cruising at 1/58. No doubt they’ll have a crack at an outright win on day two.
All other Sub District matches will be one dayers this weekend after rain affected the playing surfaces on Saturday. The critical match of these is Frankston YCW v Pearcedale.
