MYCA Round 9

By James Vo



Monash University Cricket Club have qualified 3 teams for the MYCA Semi Finals. Grey team powered to a devastating victory over Power House by 328 runs, leaping to the top of South Division ladder in 1st place. White team cruised to a 7 wicket win over Melbourne Falcons Red to retain their spot as 4th on the South Division ladder. As a result, it will be a Monash derby this coming weekend as it'll be 1st v 4th teams and 2nd v 3rd teams in the semi finals.

Blue were knocked out of semi finals contention by 2 wickets against Parkfield in the Inner South East Division. However the Warriors have secured a semi final position at 4th. They will be playing against the top of the ladder team Bombers Cricket Club Incorporated.

Gold team unfortunately couldn't finish off the season on a high, losing to Strathmore Heights B52s by 122 runs.

This marks the end of regular home and away season, for those that didn't make to finals we wish you the best and hopefully we'll see you at pre-season training and the summer season.

Good luck to the teams playing in finals, please come on down to support them!
