Season 2013/14 Round 3.2

By Morgan Cole

A week of mixed fortunes with 3 wins 3 losses and a draw for the Gryphons.

A big reminder about the Pub Night at our major sponsor The Arcadia Hotel, the Arc has been very generous over the last few years to the club so it is very important that we show our support in large numbers on Friday night. Even if you can just drop by for a few hours or for a meal. All partners/friends are welcomed and encouraged.

The player of the round awards will be handed out early on in the night, and players must be present to claim them.

Training is on Wednesday from 5.30pm onwards.


The 1st XI's strong chance to register its first win of the season has been dashed by poor weather with the match being called early on Friday.

The 2nd XI has registered their first win in B Sunday grade with a dominant win over Carnegie.
Captain Kumudu lead from the front making 38 with the bat, however, the day belonged to Ruwan who took 3-11 of 9 overs and made a crucial 19 not out.

The 3rd XI has won their 4th match in a row in a big milestone game against Indigos, thanks largely to a well made 47 runs opening the batting from Joe Parel, unfortunately he was run out 3 run short of his second 50 for the club.

The 4th XI has been defeated in a game that came down to the last ball of the match. Martin Dowman (39) and Lachlan Fuda (32) both made valuable runs on debut, and Oliver Fitzpatrick took a very nice 5-16 from his 9 overs.

The 5th XI has moved just outside the top 4 with a game to spare courtesy of a forfeit from the previously unbeaten Bentleigh.

The 6th XI has lost their first match of the season against Glen Waverley.

The 7th XI have gone down in another close match against the Cavaliers, with Anushman taking 5/31 for his first 5 wicket haul for the club.
