MCA Results Round 11

By Alec Kahn



In sweltering conditions, Monash Gryphons defeated Reds outright to dump them seven points out of the four, and all but determine this season's A grade finalists. Burnley made a bold attempt at Old Caulfield's big score, while Powerhouse won easily against Sacred Heart but could not force the outright.

In B grade, Arcadia won a thriller against South Yarra, chasing down 282 with one wicket to spare. The win gives Arcadia every chance of playing finals in their first season back in B grade. Coles completed an easy outright to reclaim second spot.

In C Grade, Carnegie sent Monash Gryphons tumbling from the four with an outright, to be replaced by South Yarra who easily beat Canterbury. Dilpreet Lamba of Ashburton made an impressive 130 of his side's 202 as they vainly tried to chase down Moorabbin Park's big score.

D grade saw three outright results. Burnley and Barnawartha won as expected and Gunbower extracted full points from the game against Sacred Heart, despite veteran medium-pacer David Whyte's 8-31.
