Saints still on fire

ANOTHER strong bowling performance was key in Myrtleford recording their second straight win of the Wangaratta and District cricket season.

ANOTHER strong bowling performance was the key in Myrtleford recording their second straight win of the Wangaratta and District cricket season with victory over Rovers United.

The Saints again restricted their opposition to no more than 100 runs, holding Rovers to 8/93 before finishing their innings at 9/134.

Without strike bowler Nelum Kumara and medium pacer Mick Elliot it was another team effort with the ball backed up by some strong work in the field.

Ben Paul continued his good form, this week claiming three wickets and ripping through the Rovers top order, dismissing the first three batsmen with just 20 runs on the board.

After Paul’s early strikes the wickets continued to tumble with Vitaly Leschen, Luke Wenworth and Corey Southern all claiming victims to have the Rovers 7/43 and in danger of failing to reach 50.

But 34 runs from Aiden Speziale and some support by Blake Nixon and Mark Drage spared Rovers total embarrassment as the three saw them to 93.
