MCA Round 10 Results

By Alec Kahn



Amazingly, most matches were completed over the weekend despite the downpour late last week.

A Grade saw four of the five games go to outright results. Sacred Heart's John Eaton, resuming on 125, plundered an unbeaten 203 from 155 balls to set up an innings win over Chilli Dogs. Jason Bulner played a lone hand of 116 in the Dogs' second innings reply of 154. Power House's ten points against Canterbury moved them back into the four at the expense of Reds, who were skittled again by top side Old Caulfield in a low scoring game.

In B Grade, MHSOB completed a shock outright over South Yarra to knock them out of second place. Three matches had to be abandoned. Coles missed a shot at ten points when the Lord Reserve pitch was vandalised with stakes overnight. Heavy local showers on Saturday morning washed out both games at Straw Field.

In C Grade, Burnley CYMS fought off South Yarra's challenge for fourth position, while Moorabbin Park easily beat Monash Gryphons to tighten its grip on second behind Glen Iris.

In D Grade, Barnawartha North moved back into the four with an outright over Sacred Heart, despite collapsing from 0-40 overnight to be dismissed for 85. Sacred Heart paceman Jason Evans had a 15-wicket haul for the match.
