CITY Colts will challenge the result of their match against Ovens Valley United after it was declared a draw following the abandonment of the second day.

Colts went into day two needing just six runs to secure victory with seven wickets in hand but the round four clash was called off ahead of Saturday due to damage to the turf pitch at Whorouly.

It is believed children damaged the wicket unknowingly while it was uncovered, following midweek rain.

“They were pretty disappointed as you would be when you are six runs away from winning,” Piazza said.
