Close finishes in Horsham cricket as Mahoney wins day

By Sean O’Connell

Horsham Tigers edged out Lubeck-Murtoa in a back-and-forth encounter as part of two-day A Grade competition in Horsham Cricket Association round 11 action. 

It took two innings from each side to determine a result at Horsham City Oval, after Horsham Tigers took a commanding position heading into the second day of play. 

The Tigers declared at the end of day one, sending Lubeck-Murtoa back in to bat after they were all out for 118 in their first innings.

Shannon Reddie hit 69 for the Mudlarks, including 10 boundaries, as they looked to surpass the Tigers’ first innings score.

Oscar Gawith was quick to 50 runs before an Angus Adams catch off the bowling of Tyler Puls dismissed the middle-order batter. 

Xavier Shevlin also made a half-century, finishing 53 not-out, as Lubeck-Murtoa declared and set the Tigers a 130-run target. 

Tyler Puls was the pick of the Tigers’ bowlers on the second day, recording three wickets, including Reddie and Gawith. 

Horsham Tigers went in to bat again but finished six runs short of an outright result. Dom Rose, 43, and Aaron Leith, 41, were the highest scorers. 

Lubeck-Murtoa’s Oliver Garth-Lindsay found Leith’s bails, as one of two individual wickets on the day.  

Bullants went into bat against Laharum, facing a target of 195, after a long day in the field on the first day of play. 

Justtin, 32, and Matthew Combe, 55, were early run scorers for the Bullants as they began their run chase. 

A further 44 came from Troy Dumesny before he was given out LBW off a Josh Mahoney ball. 

But despite Bullants’ best efforts, they were narrowly short of the Demons’ 179 as their last wicket fell. 

Mahoney’s wicket of Rosco Hair for one, with the support of a Jackson Hoffman catch, not only concluded the game but secured the Demon a five-wicket haul. 

Horsham Saints was able to build its total to 225 during the second day of play after spending 20 overs at the crease on the first day against Blackheath-Dimboola. 

Gary Davidson put together a fine innings for the Saints to see them finish 9-225, making 129 before he was caught by Sam Polack off his brother Daniel’s bowling. 

Blackheath-Dimboola returned to the middle to make a total of 8-135, an identical run amount to its first innings. 

Sam Leith, 33, and Daniel Polack, 30, both made it well into double figures. Sam Polack top-scored with 52 not-out as Saints won on first innings. 

West Wimmera’s 224 on the first day of play proved to be enough in its match against Homers. 

Homers would bat twice during the second day, but dominant bowling from West Wimmera, which included six wickets from Nathan Alexander and three from Xavier Bone, severely restricted their scoring. 

West Wimmera had Homers all-out for 69 in the first innings before they were sent in to bat again, with Homers’ openers Adam Atwood, 52, and Patrick Mills, 19, both not-out as the match finished. 

This weekend, Homers face Horsham Saints in what could be a close two-day game. 

Lubeck-Murtoa host West Wimmera, while Bullants play Horsham Tigers in a game between two highly ranked teams. 

Laharum follow up their impressive win against Bullants with a match against Blackheath-Dimboola. 

Results, at the end of day two: Horsham Tigers 9-d-221 and 4-124 d Lubeck-Murtoa 10-118 and 8-d-233; Horsham Saints 9-225 d Blackheath-Dimboola 10-135 and 8-135; West Wimmera 10-244 d Homers 10-69 and 0-75; Laharum 10-195 d Bullants 10-179.
