Army marches into four
HDCA -- ROUND FIVE DAY TWO
SOUTHERN Grampians has defeated Hamilton in their Bendigo Bank
HDCA A grade match at Tarrington to settle back into the top four and
keep their nals chances alive.
The Southern Army is back in the four thanks mainly to strong dis-
play with the ball after setting Hamilton a target of for victory after
being sent in by Anthony Read.
There were certainly no re works by the home team batsmen as
Elliot Walkenhorst ( ) and Roger Rook ( ) gave the side a total that
appeared to be gettable coming into the tea break
Hamilton bowlers had done well to maintain a line and length that
restricted the batsmen and seemed far from a strong total on what
appeared to be a good batting surface.
This was shown to be true as Robbie Cook opened the batting for the
visitors and played beautifully as he and Joel Tully ( ) added for
the rst wicket to set Hamilton on the path to victory.
Cook was joined by Brenton Callaby and together they took the tally
to just after the drinks break before Callaby was stumped for six.
This wicket lifted the home side as the bowlers struck with a venom-
ous repetition as wickets fell all too readily.
The Hamilton middle order simply imploded to go from - to be
all out for only as if they had been hypnotised into playing poorly.
Only Cook ( ) could be proud of his e orts with the bat and to have
that rst victory in their sights only to lose will be a bitter pill for these
'Uber' destroys Drews in 12 overs
HDCA -- ROUND FIVE DAY TWO
GRAMPIANS captain Kane Uebergang destroyed
any hope that St Andrew's had of winning the match
at Young Oval in the space of overs, as he mon-
stered the ball to all parts of the eld in posting a
match winning on Saturday to lift his team to
second place on the Bendigo Bank HDCA A grade
After losing the toss, Uebergang set his bowlers in
motion against Brendan Huf and Jamie Logan on a
new wicket and his opening attack did not fail him.
Carl Joyce and Duncan Cameron sent down
maiden overs with their rst overs and appeared to
be setting the standard for the day.
Huf got the scoring going with two slashing square
cuts to the fence from Joyce's second over, but Cam-
eron gained his reward as he had Logan ( ) playing
and missing only to have his castle knocked over in
his second over.
This brought Ian Watt to the wicket and the pair
went searching for a partnership to set the innings
up, but the Grampians bowlers remained diligent
with their line and length against two of the best
batsmen in the competition.
The wicket gave assistance to the bowlers as it
appeared to be two paced and a little uneven as
the ball spat at Huf from a good length to put some
doubt into the batsmen's minds.
As such the scoring was painfully slow as only
runs came from the rst overs.
From the next overs Huf and Watt were able to
increase that rate to per over, but it still appeared
to be slow as the drinks were taken with the score-
board reading - after .
The run rate did not improve upon resumption
as Rhys Crowe was brought into the attack and he
had Watt trapped in front of his stumps LBW for
in an innings that Watt appeared to be out of sorts
He is a much better batsman than he showed on
Saturday and maybe the wicket had much to do
with the manner in which he played.
The prize scalp of Huf fell to Crowe as well with
a brilliant piece from wicketkeeper Heinrich Joyce,
who whipped o the bails as Huf failed to anchor his
back foot as the ball passed his leg stump.
Huf was gone for and the Drew's were - after
Tim Goodman joined Michael Fitzpatrick and the
pair started to play well as if the wicket was a prime
Goodman had been out of sorts with the bat this
summer as he has had no luck what so ever to date,
but on Saturday it appeared that the trend was
nally turning for the young man as he played well
against a red up attack.
He and Fitzpatrick looked to be getting the bet-
ter of the bowlers, but Goodman set o for a run
that simply was not there and he found himself at
the same end as his partner when the bails were
removed after a ne piece of elding from Cameron.
At - with only nine overs remaining, Fitzpat-
rick knew that much rested on his shoulders to give
his bowlers a score that could be defended.
The veteran left hander played beautifully as
he stroked the ball through the gaps and over the
in eld to send the ball racing to and over the fence
as he raced to from approximately balls.
He started the second last over with a century on
his mind, but Cameron put paid to those thoughts
as he pitched the ball full and straight to knock over
the batsman's stumps.
It was a great knock that included nine boundaries
and a couple of sixes for good measure.
Next ball the crowd was stunned as Damien Logan
came in and whipped the ball o his pads behind
square leg only to see Stephen Field ing himself
to his right to grab a stunning one handed catch to
send the St Andrew's skipper on his way.
Grampians did a wonderful job in the last two
overs as St Andrew's should have posted a target in
excess of , but Cameron and Joyce combined to
restrict the scoring in the two overs to only one run
as the innings nished at - .
After the tea break the Drew's knew that they had
to bowl as well as their opposition if they were to
restrict the scoring and defend what appeared to be
a modest total.
The innings got underway well for the home side
as Ty Gilmore continued to struggle with the bat
and he was sent on his way for only seven in the
seventh over with on the board.
This brought Carl Joyce to the wicket to join
Field and they found batting just as hard as the St
Andrew's batsmen on the surface as the rate slowed.
The bowlers made good use of the conditions as
they tied the batsmen down with some ne line and
length bowling as Huf claimed the wicket of Joyce
for as Cam Pither held onto the chance o ered
in the th over.
Grampians went to the break at - still needing
a further for victory and the match was evenly
No one could have foretold what was to happen
after the break as Field and Heinrich Joyce resumed.
Joyce was back in the pavilion straight away as he
fell to David Heeps for only two, but this brought
Uebergang to the wicket with his side in trouble at
The rst year skipper started slowly as he acclima-
tised himself with the conditions and the bowling,
and none were to see the innings that he unleashed
over the next overs.
He cut loose on the bowlers, hitting the ball to
and over the fence almost at will as the bowlers
struggled to contain the batting onslaught that he
in icted upon them.
He raced past Field's score quickly and then set
about reaching his half century as the ball disap-
peared to all parts of the ground.
He pushed the score past the target in only the
st over as runs came at will as he and Field added
for the fourth wicket before he was gone for a
stunning that included eight boundaries and
ve sixes to take the match away from St Andrew's.
Field had played the perfect foil for his skipper
as he nurdled the ball around in compiling a sound
knock of as the Pumas nished on - to take
the points and second place on the ladder.
TAKE THAT: Grampians skipper Kane Uebergang played a classical captain's innings with a hard hitting 80 to steer his side to victory against St Andrew's on Saturday. Photo: TRACEY
