ROUND 7 MCA RESULTS
By Alec Kahn
Only three sides managed to chase down the large totals posted last week in round 7. Burnley in A Grade, Arcadia Hotel in B Grade and Glen Iris in C Grade all made a good fist of batting second, though the latter two games went down to the wire.
Caulfield Grammarians extended their lead at the top of A Grade with an outright win. Club president Glenn Harrison made 104* to set up the 10-wicket victory over Chili Dogs. Emmanuel continued its surge up the ladder, beating Reds easily to now trail them by percentage only in the fight for fourth place.
In B Grade, MHSOB moved into the four, winning its shortened match against Ajax easily while Glen Iris stumbled against South Yarra . In C grade, South Yarra leapt into the four with an outright over Bayswater, displacing Moorabbin Park who surprisingly opted for batting practice instead of pressing for full points against bottom side Carnegie.
In D grade, the top three sides took outright points to jump well clear of the field. But Burnley held off Sacred Heart's attempt for 10 points, and the battle for fourth place remains wide open.
