Four wins, a draw, and a loss wrapped up Monbulk’s Saturday results with the U12s & U13’s unfortunately heated out on Friday night.
A terrific all round performance from Brodie Emmett was not enough for the 1st XI to defeat St-Johns-Tecoma in a rain affected draw.
An awesome spell from Beau Newman (6/29 from 26 overs) followed up by 51 not out from Jim Fenby saw the 2nd XI have a good win.
Both the 3’s and 4’s also had wins in their one day games with the highlight going to 15 year old Rab Noonan who took a rare hat-trick in the 3rds (see pictured)
1st XI- Monbulk 5/304 dec (B.Emmett 84, T.Watson 60, A.Powell 51, S.Cosstick 31) drew St Johns-Tecoma 7/149 (B.Emmett 3/25). 2nd XI-Monbulk 4/107 (J.Fenby 50*) defeated St Johns-Tecoma 10/101 (B.Newman 6/29). 3rd XI-Monbulk 2/80 (M.Winzenried 34*, J.Simmonds 33) defeated UFTG 10/76 (R.Noonan 3/24 inc hat-trick). 4th XI-Monbulk 5/127 (L.Jurey 53) defeated UTFG 8/114.
