SUB-DISTRICT

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully

DROMANA cruised into the MPCA Sub District grand final after thrashing Carrum Downs in the semi final over the weekend.

The Hoppers smashed 254 before rolling Carrum Downs on the second day for just 118.

On the opening day on Saturday the Hoppers lost their first two wickets for ten runs before Kierran Voelkl and Jack Fowler steadied the ship with 53 and 72 runs respectively.  Jedd Savage then strolled to the crease and helped himself to 63 while Sam Fowler chimed in at the end with 34 to help the Hoppers to 254.

David Dervan was the pick of the Carrum Downs bowlers with 3/50.

Carrum will take on Dromana in the grand final after a two wicket victory over Tootgarook.

Batting second Carrum had an extra over to try and win the match, an over that proved to be handy given Tootgarook was bowled out for 132.  Carrum hit the winning runs eight wickets down.
