MCA Scores Round 11

By Alec Kahn

Emmanuel has knocked Carnegie out of second place in A grade after an easy win at Koornang Park. Playing a reduced 110-over match to free up players for next Sunday's Association game, Emmanuel ran up an impressive 270, and despite a lone hand of 114 from Sudhar Ramanujachari, the total was too big for the home side. Monash Gryphons are poised to cause a major upset, needing just another 68 with eight wickets in hand after dismissing Reds for a paltry 126. Top side Old Caulfield continued on their merry way, Glenn Harrison scoring his second ton of the season to set Burnley CYMS a big chase.

In B grade, South Yarra have posted a big score in the crucial clash against Arcadia. The loser will drop out of the four, making way for Coles who are poised to win outright in a low scoring game at Righetti.

In C Grade, bottom side Carnegie continues to cause upsets, skittling fourth placed Monash Gryphons for 59 and opening the door to finals action for South Yarra, who play Canterbury in a one-dayer next Sunday.

In D grade, the late surges towards the four by Coles, Sacred Heart and Ajax have faltered as they struggle against the top three. The battle for fourth is now between Barnawartha North and Burnley. After Burnley went well on the way to outright points against Carnegie on Saturday, the Barnies answered the challenge on Sunday with a whirlwind 379 at Dendy Park, leaving enough time to have Brighton East reeling at 6-61.
