Connor's Cup

By Ian Harley

Cup Weekend saw the first of our 2 T20 rounds scheduled and Upwey, Knoxfield, Belgrave and Upper Ferntree Gully occupy the top 4 Positions with 2 wins each. The Kings' Josh Dowling (55) and Peter Dunlop (52*) made sure Upper Ferntree Gully (4/126) came away with a win over the Panthers.  Cody Morris played a lone hand for Eildon Park with 34 of the teams 8/123 in their allotted overs.

Upwey Tecoma notched up another win with Berenato (43) and Wells (35) pushing the Tigers score to 140. In reply Monbulk managed only 75 runs with Cam Wheeler and Ben Wood both snagging 3 wickets.  Knoxfield surpassed Ferntree Gully's 111. Burley and Sundaresh did the damage with the ball, both taking 3/13 before the Knights replied with 6/133

Connor Hyde made 39 and took 3/9 in an all-round performance that saw the Belgrave defeat Mountain Gate. Knox Gardens and The Basin used their game as a fund raiser for Cystic Fibrosis but it was the Bears who took the points.

In Decoite Shield, Johnson Park returned to the winner's circle over Olinda, Front runner Footballers easily accounted for St. Johns Tecoma with Nick Bogar the standout. Lysterfield and South Belgrave also celebrated their second wins of the season.
