This One’s for you Dad.

FTGDCA Round 5

By Ian Harley

 

A day after burying his father, Dean Palandri marked the occasion by hitting an emotion filled century for St Johns Tecoma against Johnson Park in DeCoite Shield. As a sign of respect The Sharks also wore black armbands for Mike Palandri who passed away last week. The Sharks took 2 early wickets to have the Saints 2/6 when Palandri strode to the crease joining Andrew Evans (55). 5 Partners and 71 overs later Palandri completed his century in front of his mother and family. He was dismissed for 105 with the score on 219 before the Saints finished the day on 9/244. Liyan deSilva (4/33) and Ben Stallworthy (4/66) did the job for the Sharks, while Bryn Gaunt suffered a dental injury completing a catch.

 

In other DeCoite games Lysterfield made 269 against South Belgrave with opposing skippers Nathan Walsh (68) and Aaron Suckling (5/89) imposing themselves on the game. FTG Footballers were dismissed for 165 by Knoxfield with Luke Scanlan claiming 4 wickets and Olinda were bowled out for 178 by Rowville.

 

In Norm Reeves shield Knoxfield hosted Upwey in a top of the table clash. The Tigers batted the day to finish on 8/272. Darren Spence (87) and Quenten Wells (74) led the way with Cameron Wheeler (39) scoring some late runs. The Knights will have to bat all day to take the points in this game. 

 

Monbulk made a solid showing setting Knox Gardens 262. Uzair Alam 85 and Daniel Clarke 77 proved to be the best bats for the Hawks while Zac Flintoff's 5 wickets kept the Falcons in the game. Feathers will fly next week in pursuit of the 6 points.

 

Monto Perera took 4 wickets as Eildon Park bowled The Basin out for 158. Jake Best (46) and Josh Lee (30) were the top scorers for the Bears on the day, although Eildon Park did not have it all their own way, finishing on 2/27. Day two will be an interesting tussle. 

 

At HV Jones reserve Mountain Gate made 160 against Ferntree Gully on the back of Clint Buckland's 44 and Luke Bowyers 41. For the Blues Bryce Galvin had his best return of the season taking 4/37 and Ryan Handley celebrated his return with 3 wickets. Ferntree Gully are 0/34 leading into next week. 

 

Doug Oaten (80) stepped up for Belgrave helping them to 9/244 against Upper Ferntree Gully at Belgrave Recreation Reserve. Rob Birnie's 4 wickets was the best return for the Kings who will be looking to redeem themselves after last week’s collapse.
