MAKING the long trek to Nerrena,
Phillip Island C Grade took on top team
Outtrim in a do-or-die semi final at the
Skipper Peter Francis won the toss and
elected to bat.
Things got off to a rough start with
Mark Christopher caught in slips on the
fourth ball, and veteran Carl Muscat fol-
lowing a few overs later, LBW for 5.
Steve Niven and Wade Paterson stead-
ied the ship taking the score on to 19 be-
fore Nivo and Wade both fell LBW for 8
and 5 respectively.
At 4 for 26 Phillip Island was looking
at annihilation unless it could put togeth-
er some big partnerships.
Dave Kenter and Peter Francis started
the long road back against super disci-
plined Outtrim bowling.
Slowly the game started to turn and
when this pair took the score past 100
with 26 overs still to come, a defendable
total looked achievable.
Unfortunately Dave, who was hob-
bling after being hit on the same little
toe twice, was caught for a well made 59
with the score on 107.
Peter followed 7 runs later for a patient
The job was ahead of the tail to push
on towards 200, but unfortunately John
Manning with 17 was the only one to
reach double figures and Phillip Island
was bundled out for a lean 142.
Day two started with Steve Niven and
Ben Quirk opening the bowling against
seasoned campaigner Peter Miller and
They batted slowly and with great dis-
cipline, and chances were hard to come
A couple of close LBW shouts and
some dropped catches helped them to
a painstaking 98-run partnership in 43
overs, with Quirky finally knocking over
Miller’s stumps for 59.
He repeated the dose for the danger-
ous Quaiffe a couple of overs later send-
ing him on his way for 9, but McKinnon
batted on finishing 46 not out when he
and Paterson reached the victory target
in 61 overs.
Phillip Island bowlers did a great job,
bowling tight and creating chances, none
of which were taken.
Bowling figures were Quirk, the only
wicket taker, 11 overs 2 for 26, Niven 13
overs for 27, Young 9 overs for 18, John-
ston 14 overs for 15, Francis 8 overs for
15, Paterson 2 overs for 12, Cox 4 overs
for 13 and Cleary 1 over for 7.
Phillip Island was comprehensively
outplayed in all aspects of this game, but
well done to all the boys, both young and
old, who played throughout the year.
A special mention to young Tom Niven
who fielded for the last part of the game
and did a great job.
C Grade bows out in semi
ON Thursday, past and present
members of the Phillip Island Tennis
Club enjoyed a farewell lunch at the
Silverleaves store to wish Joy Morgan
all the best for her move up north.
Joy and husband Alan, former
residents of Penguin Resort, leave on
Friday for their journey to the Gold
Coast where they have bought a new
unit at Labrador.
Joy was offered the club’s best
wishes and we hope it all goes well for
both of them.
She was presented with a set of
coasters containing Island scenes as a
memento of her 16 years on the Island.
At Joy Morgan’s farewell lunch at the Silverleaves Store are, back from
