Melbourne's Keiran Elliott launches an unsuccessful appeal

Monash Tigers and Melbourne Uni sent the finals race down to the wire with a 7pm finish at Central Reserve. Headed on the first innings by 55, Melbourne Uni knocked up a brisk 8/202 declared from just 29 overs. This set the Tigers 148 from 40 overs for maximum points. Andrew Chalkley (63) batted well for the Tigers, but quick Steven Reid (3/49) and leggie Fawad Ahmed (3/63) kept the Students in the finals hunt. at 7/102, Uni's hopes were still alive, but third-gamer Noah Croes (23*) and Lachlan Fitzpatrick (8*) guided the Tigers home with 1.2 overs to spare.

 

Footscray and St Kilda were looking good for home Quarter Finals, but the late finishes at Central Reserve and Shepley have relegated them to away finals next weekend. Carlton also snuffed the Bombers' hopes of a home Quarter Final with an emphatic win at Windy Hill. Carlton's Donovan Pell (125) and Harrison Smyth (111*) put on 208 for the second wicket to see the Blues home.

 

Brett Forsyth (144*) scored his 13th Premier century and, with fellow opener Tom Donnell (90), the pair posted their 13th century opening stand for the Panthers. Dandenong (3/313) were relatively untroubled in chasing down the Cats' 8/312 declared, although they had just four balls to spare at the end.

 

Trent Lawford (6/39) closed out Kingston Hawthorn to finish with 53 wickets for the season at the wonderful average of 12.21. It was his fourth five-wicket haul. The Lions (248) bowled the Hawks out for 158.

 

Greenvale Kangaroos suffered an embarrassing third outright loss in the last four matches as they were bowled out for 28 by Ringwood in their second innings at Greenvale. This is the lowest score in District/Premier Cricket since North Melbourne was rolled for 27 by Melbourne in 1961-62. Rams' quick Matt Fotia had the astonishing figures of 9-9-0-5.

 

In other games Footscray (7/224) hauled in Melbourne (192), Carlton (2/277) crushed Essendon (205), with Donovan Pell (125) and Harrison Smyth (111*) the stars. Prahran finished the season on a high, chasing down Northcote's 264 and St Kilda (3/343 dec) finally bowled outan obstinate  Frankston Peninsula (167).
