Blues, Bombers and Cats nab crucial wins
Date of Event Victorian Premier Cricket: Sat Feb 2, 2019 7:11PM
Tim Ludeman scored a vital half-century for Geelong today

Carlton, Essendon and Geelong scored important wins today. Draws may well cost Melbourne Uni and Camberwell Magpies in the long term.

 

A big win to Essendon over Melbourne at the Albert Ground has seen the Bombers jump into second spot on the ladder. Chasing Melbourne's 5(dec)347, James Seymour saw the Bombers away to a brilliant start with a blazing 106 off 112 balls with 11 fours and 3 sixes. Aaron Ayre (67), Michael Hill (89) and Justin Galeotti (73*) continued to flay the Melbourne attack in a great chase. It was Seymour's second century of the season and his third for Essendon.

 

Carlton has maintained top spot on the ladder with a comfortable win over Monash Tigers at Central Reserve. Donovan Pell (82) and Harrison Smyth (59) ensured there were no hiccups in the Blues' chase of 189. Carlton ended at 8/261.

 

Dandenong overtook Fitzroy Doncaster's 156 at Shepley Oval. Resuming on 4/102, the Panthers slumped to 7/145 before James Nanopoulos (48) and Akshay Buch (41) added 56 for the eighth wicket to see their side safely home. Sam Elliott (5/58) recorded a maiden five-for, while Trent Lawford (4/65) completed a good personal double.

 

Geelong recorded a good win, chasing down Prahran's 290 at the GCG. Angus Boyd (80*), Tim Ludeman (53), Eamonn Vines (56) and Hayden Butterworth (36) all made important contributions.
 
 
 
Ringwood won a low-scoring match at Russell Lucas Oval against St Kilda. Chasing Ringwood's modest 184 the Saints appeared gone at 7/57, but skipper Michael Beer (38) added valuable runs with tail-enders Todd Murphy (20) and Shea Gribben (25*), lifting the total to 141 before Michael Topp (5/36) took the last three wickets to wrap up the win.

 

Frankston Peninsula hauled in Northcote's 195 at Bill Lawry Oval. Rob Salerni (75* and Tom Wood (37*) saw the Heat home with an unbroken 56-run stand for the fourth wicket.

 

Two thrilling draws finished off Round 12, along with a Greenvale Kangaroos win over Kingston Hawthorn.

 

A gallant fightback from Casey-South Melbourne keeper Devin Pollock (104) saw the Swans draw with Melbourne Uni at Uni. The Students scored 332 last week and, although Casey-SM never looked like chasing the target down, Pollock's defiant knock enabled his side to an honourable draw. Pollock was dismissed, bowled by Steven Reid at 9/267, but Josh Dowling (1* off 37 balls) and Jackson Fry (6* off 20 balls) held out to reach 9/273. It was Pollock's second Premier century - he also scored 104 against the Heat in 2014-15.

 

Similarly Footscray held out for an exciting draw against Camberwell Magpies at Merv Hughes Oval. Matt Underwood (90) was in good form early, but wickets tumbled and, when Lucas Dredge (0) was bowled by Fekete, it was 9/246. Hamish Winter-Irving (24* off 42 balls) and Jack Sheppard (1* off 15 balls) held out the Magpies' attack for the draw.
