Love the Game Round celebrated today in Premier Cricket
Carlton, Geelong and St Kilda all registered convincing wins in Premier Cricket today after posting good totals and defending them strongly. Dandenong sits clear on top, while Geelong and Kingston Hawthorn got off the mark today with their respective first wins of the season.
Dandenong celebrated Tom Donnell's 200th game with a comprehensive win over Casey-South Melbourne. The stars were 38 year-old paceman Darren Pattinson, who wound the clock back with a devastating spell of 4/19 from his 10 overs, and Donnell himself with 56 in the Panthers' innings.
Carlton's 5/310 at the AH Butler Oval was the day's highest total and was underpinned by Tom Smyth (120 off 120 balls, 6 fours, 3 sixes), 17 year-old Mackenzie Harvey (94* off 78 balls, 13 fours, 1 six) and Harrison Smyth (50 off 77 balls, 6 fours). Frankston Peninsula was always struggling in reply, slumping to 6/93 and 9/114 before number eleven Jack Benbow clouted 36 to top-score. Eddy O'Sullivan (4/33 took the bowling honours for Carlton.
Geelong skipper Eamonn Vines continued his red-hot form with an unbeaten 121, scored off 135 balls, with 8 fours. Vines' four knocks this season have been 32, 79, 102 and 121* - a total of 334 runs at 111.33 to date. The Cats finished with 9/264 and, although Greenvale Kangaroos fought it out, they were restricted to 8/188 from their 50 overs, with Jack Rhodes (48) doing best for the Roos in a comfortable win by the Cats.
St Kilda was off to a great start, with Michael De Iacovo (43) and Erik Laubscher (55) putting on 83 for the first wicket in good time. Damon Egan (70) and Josh Bartlett (41) followed up as the Saints finished on 7/253. Melbourne Uni lost wickets regularly in their chase, at 4/24 and 6/85, finishing on 142. Left-arm tweaker Michael Beer (3/16) did best with the ball for the Saints.
Reigning premiers Fitzroy Doncaster (1/161 (Peter Dickson 74*, Matt Frith 53) made light work of Northcote's 8/157 at Schramms Reserve.
Footscray won a tight contest against Monash Tigers at Central Reserve North. The Tigers batted first, finishing with 9/183 with Andrew Chalkley (42) the top-score. The Bulldogs' reply began well, with Matt Underwood (59), Hayden Butterworth (35) and skipper Dylan Kight (32) placing them in a strong position. From 2/103 however, the innings lost its way as Dom Matarazzo (3/35) struck the middle-order. The Tigers' attack, decimated with injuries to Berryman, Shimell and Griffin and the retirement of Wise, ran out of options as Mitch Barnewall (14*) and Jack Sheppard (6*) got the Doggies across the line.
The other tight one today was won by Prahran over Camberwell Magpies at the CSG. The Magpies batted first, scoring 9/236, with Daniel Rawson (76) top-scoring. Prahran looked to be in control at 3/194, with Jacob Serry (73) and J Billington (76) in command, but it took until the final over before Prahran won with just four balls to spare.
Kingston Hawthorn also defeated Essendon in another tense finish at Windy Hill. The Hawks (7/218) chased down the Bombers' 8/217 with 14 balls to spare. Englishman Jack Taylor (62) and Brad Rossborough (59) got the Hawks over the line.
Ringwood plays Melbourne tomorrow at Bayswater to complete the round.
