Round 4 – Second XI Match Report

After Captain and President Mike Temby lost yet another toss at home to the Gators (Fountain Gate), Jarrod Daymond (3/42) had their top order reeling at 4/8.  Missed chances in the field let the opposition off the hook though with 194 pilled on for the 7th wicket and 300 plus on the cards until DVD (Dale Vanden Driesen) cleaned up the tail with 4/28.
In reply to the 287, the Roos lost wickets too regularly with only Temby (87. Yes you are reading correctly. Michael Temby made 87 on turf) and Craig Donnison (27*) providing strong resistance.  Steven ‘Emu’ Smith (13) looked set for a good score until being trapped plumb LBW and walking quietly off the ground.  After Temby was dismissed short of a deserved century, victory was always going to be out of reach with the Roos bowled out soon after for 187.
The lapses in the field in the first week ultimately cost the seconds victory but the signs are there that a win is around the corner.
