Saturday Scoreboard - Round 6 Men's Grades
Date of Event Victorian Premier Cricket: Sat Dec 18, 2021 6:43PM
Ringwood opener Tom Rogers has broken the record today for the highest score in the Kookaburra Men's Premier 1st XI for a One Day Game with 200* against reigning premiers Prahran.

What a day of action in the Men's grades of Victorian Premier Cricket! Warm conditions early gradually cooled off during the day, allowing for some wonderful conditions across the grounds.

 

It is safe to say with the last round before Christmas that Santa came early for some clubs with some totally unexpected results. Across the Men's 1st XI competition, we had no less than 5 centuries (including a double!), 2 x 6-wicket hauls and a 5-wicket haul. 

 

Arguably the performance of the round came from the Ringwood vs Prahran game at Russell Lucas Oval, with the Rams winning by 40 runs. Batting first, the hosts won the toss and scored 5/325 with opener Tom Rogers finishing with a wonderful 200*, breaking the record set by teammate Ian Holland (199* vs Frankston Peninsula) in the 2018/19 season for the most runs by a individual batsman in a One Day game in the Men's Premier 1st XI competition. David King (39) and Arjun Dhull (34) provided support in this wonderful feat. In reply, the True Blues chased hard but eventually were dismissed for 285 with Matt Wilcox (50) the only bat to pass 35, whilst King (3/58) and Rogers (2/34) completed the job. 

 

At the Greenvale Reserve #1 ground, arguably the biggest upset of the season occurred with bottom placed Greenvale Kangaroos defeating top side Carlton by 26 runs. The hosts batted first and scored 6/253 with young batting star Joshua Trembearth (119) breaking through for a century against a quality attack and had support from the recalled Bernard Kelly (50*). In reply, the Blues struggled for regular partnerships apart from the stand between the Smyth brothers, Harrison (73) and Tom (32 & 2/33) and Tom Mileto (36) and were eventually dismissed for 227. For the victors, Sean McNicholl (4/45) and Harvinder Singh (3/45) did the damage with the ball in what will be a memorable victory for the club in what has been a tough road in recent seasons on-field.

 

Another upset that took place saw 15th placed Dandenong travel to the University Main Oval and defeat 3rd placed Melbourne University by 56 runs. The Panthers batted first and scored 6/253 with Cam Forsyth (81), Josh Slater (59) and Matthew Wilson (51*) all performing after being 2/6 early, whilst Simon Mackin (2/45) the only bowler for the Students to strike regularly. In reply, the Students struggled to gel for a big partnership and were eventually dismissed for 197 with Harrison Emms (49) and Fergus McKenna (34) making decent starts. For the Panthers, the main performer with the ball was Gehan Seneviratne (4/42), with Braden Taeuber and Aaron Fernando both chipping in with 2 wickets. 

 

In the other games:

  • Northcote defeated the Camberwell Magpies at Bill Lawry Oval by 178 runs with Michael Edwards (6/21) the standout in the match.
  • Footscray defeated Frankston Peninsula by 4 wickets with Dylan Brasher (44) countering the efforts of James Nanopoulos (51) in a low-scoring game.
  • Geelong defeated Kingston Hawthorn by 66 runs at Walter Galt Reserve with twin centurions Hayden Butterworth (104) and Jack Riding (103) leading for the Cats, whilst Romain Grenville (101*) stood out for the Hawks.
  • Melbourne defeated Essendon by 89 runs at the Albert Ground with Charles Lill (63), Jack Harper (62) and Kyle Williamson (4/32) starring for the hosts. For the Bombers, Michael Hill (55) and Cam McClure (3/49) tried hard.
  • Fitzroy Doncaster defeated Richmond by 43 runs at Central Reserve North with despite the two standouts from this game being on the losing team - Shobit Singh (95) and Dom Matarazzo (6/30 in his 150th Premier 1st XI match). 
  • Finally, St Kilda defeated Casey-South Melbourne by 7 wickets at Casey Fields #4 with Patrick Rowe (78*) and Josh Manning (66) regaining touch with the bat and Wil Lovell (5/36) starring with the ball.
