ROUND 6 SCORES

By Alec Kahn



Rain-affected pitches made for some dramatic results in round 6. In A Grade, Canterbury collapsed from their overnight 1-79 but held on to inflict Caulfield Grammarians' first defeat by one wicket. A sporty Fawkner Park 5 pitch saw the Monash Gryphons crash to a first innings loss, but then medium pacer Matt Varcoe shot out Chilli Dogs for 27 to give the Gryphons an easy outright. Emmanuel continued their climb up the ladder, cruising past Power House after resuming at a precarious 4-64.

In B grade, Glen Iris salvaged six points after inswing bowler Paul Stewart ran through Arcadia's inconsistent batting. Carnegie completed an outright as expected against Ajax, but Coles Myer and Power House chased down solid totals.

C Grade saw the batting performance of the round, all-rounder Nathan Hart hammering 150 as Glen Iris demolished Ashburton. Monash defeated Bayswater outright, a result that will please Burnley CYMS who will also take ten points after Carnegie forfeited when only four players turned up for the second day.

In D Grade, Power House climbed to top place with an outright win over Sacred Heart after a well-judged declaration. Burnley CYMS shed its reputation as D grade whipping boys with a ten-point result over Ajax.
