AFTER the A Grade match was
called off by OMK due to a “wet”
ground last week, the decision re-
sulted in a one day game on Saturday.
The Sharks captain Lochie Clee-
land won the toss as per usual and
put his eager boys into bat.
The Islanders lost their Sri Lankan
superstar early as he tickled one to
the keeper which then brought Paul
Chin to the crease to start the rebuild
with the skipper.
Both batsmen took time and con-
structed their innings and partner-
Cleeland made a solid half century
as the pair batted through to drinks
and had the score at 1/92.
The Sharks lost a second wicket
straight after drinks as OMK had
done some research and caught the
Island skipper off a full toss.
Paul was soon to follow on 37 as he
tried to lift the run rate.
Phillip Island then had a middle or-
der collapse and it was up to the tail
end to see out the overs and build a
The Sharks lost their last wicket
in the final over and posted 150 on a
small and fast ground.
The visitors came out after lunch
pumped and ready to defend a total
that they knew was under par but
anything is possible in a game of
Outtrim, having home ground ad-
vantage, got straight into the run
chase hitting early boundaries and
putting the pressure on the Island
Simon Kirton snagged the first
wicket for the Sharks snicking one off
to the keeper, and that brought the in-
form OMK batsmen Jason Wilson to
the crease as he and the other opener
rebuilt in a hasty fashion, ticking the
runs the over regularly.
Charith was the next to strike forc-
ing the wrong shot from the set bats-
man and getting the edge, and 20
runs later Kirton bagged another to
have OMK 3/119.
Outtrim passed the required score
at the 30 over mark and in true OMK
fashion kept the Island in the field for
the remaining 10 overs so they could
get some “batting practice”.
All in all it was a tough day for the
Phillip Island boys but they held their
heads high and played to the end.
Tough day at
the office for B Grade
HAVING made early inroads into
the OMK batting line up last week,
the B Grade Sharks were keen to
capitalise with early wickets.
The pressure was applied to the
batsmen with some tight bowling
however the desired breakthrough
couldn’t be achieved with some sen-
sible batting seeing off the openers.
The bowling was shifted around
and although the bowlers were do-
ing their best, the runs started to
build with established batsmen at the
Matthew Wright came into the at-
tack and created chances, but un-
fortunately the team was unable to
snaffle the catch and this ultimately
proved to be very costly.
Wright took matters into his own
hands and clean bowled the other
batsmen but the damage had been
From here the batting side contin-
ued to produce solid partnerships
around Cochrane who went on to
make a well compiled 105.
This did provide the captain with
the opportunity to have a look at all
of his bowlers at his discretion. Epi-
fano bowled well to claim the wickets
of two established batsmen including
Other notable performances in-
cluded Finlayson with the impressive
figures of 2/14 off 4 overs.
Although the side was well and
truly outplayed, it did highlight the
importance of making the most of
your opportunities in the field with
several chances going to waste with
On a positive note, the social com-
mittee are pleased with the contribu-
tions by several players including An-
ton Thomas and Scott Boyack.
Well done lads.
WITH just 144 to defend and the
Rhyll ground much faster than last
week, Phillip Island needed to bowl
and field well to be in with a show.
Things started badly with a couple
of dropped catches early, but Steve
Niven struck in his second over re-
moving Jones for 5.
Niven struck again 10 runs later
having Cocksedge well caught by
Quirk at fine leg.
Wade Paterson chipped in for an-
other wicket removing the stubborn

Enter Ronny Young, fresh from a
good round of golf in the morning.
Instead of letting them consolidate,
Ron smashed the middle order tak-
ing 4/7 in five overs.
This left MDU reeling at 8/67.
The Island boys started contem-
plating an early finish, but as always,
there was a twist in the tail.
MDU skipper Dale Thomas and
Mitch Hoober settled in for a big
partnership, and batted very steadi-
They added 61 for the 9th wicket,
and the tension was rising.
Numerous bowlers tried to shift
them, but it was finally Quirky who
trapped the skipper in front for 32,
still needing 19 for a win.
The last few overs were tense, and
when Quirky started the 70th over
MDU needed just four runs to win.
He trapped Hoober in front with
his fifth ball, and Phillip Island won
by three runs.
It was a great effort by Phillip Is-
land to consolidate fourth spot on
Pick of the bowlers was Ron
Young, who finished with 18 overs,
five maidens, 4/38.
Other wicket takers were Steve
Niven, 2/16 off 10 overs, Ben Quirk,
2/31 off 17.5 overs, John Johnston,
1/13 off 9 overs and Wade Paterson,
1/13 off 4 overs.

Thanks to Blake Young and Tom
Niven for helping out in the field.
