Seagulls too good for Cobras

Bohdi hits out. 174968

The Cobras made the trip over the bridge to take on Barwon Heads at the Village Green in this very important must-win Round 4 two day game. Collendina Captain Xavier Norman won the toss and elected to bat. Norman and Izaak Terhorst opened the batting and got the Cobras off to a positive start with an opening stand of 17 when Terhorst was dismissed for an aggresive 10. Norman was dismissed for 13 with the score on 44. Unfortunately the wickets fell at regular intervals with only Deisel McNeil (12) and Max McLachlan (20no) showing any resistance. The Cobras were dismissed for a total of 105.
The bowling would have to be good to defend such a small total. The Cobras had to bowl seven overs at the Seagulls at the end of day one and the signs were positive. Koby Welch took a fine catch off the bowling of Brodie Muscat to have Barwon Heads 1/17 at the end of day one. Day two saw a reasonable effort with the ball but Barwon Heads made easy work of the Cobra total and they finished the day on 6/160. Max McLachlan and Ollie Northam took one wicket each while Koby Welch chimed in with three wickets, finishing with the impressive figures of 3/5 off 3.3 overs. The Cobras will need to regroup as they head into take on Marshall Cricket Club in Round 5.
The Snakes hosted Wallington and produced a great team effort to comfortably take the points. Wallington made 66 with three-wickets haul by Monty Juffermans, Goodluck and George Every. Great catching by Jack Hammond and sticky hands Noah Jeffrey made sure all chances were taken. The team then batted and finished off with 6 for 262 off their 52 overs. Stars with the bat were Jack Every (38) and Oli Terhorst (26).
