Sunbury Roar advance to quarter finals after proving too strong for its opponents in the VTCA T20 round robin fixture.
First up was a home fixture at Clarke Oval where the Roar made light work of visitors Sanctuary Lakes. The Sharks won the toss and batted setting a target of 8/124, pick of the bowlers was Jase “the Ace” McGowan with 2/18. Dylan Landt (78*) and Justin Nelson (43*) finished off game for the Roar without losing a wicket. Dylan hit opposition bowling to all parts of Clarke Oval including 5 sixes (and has not been sighted since).
In the 2nd match; Melton South had no answer to the Roar posting a massive 2/238, bowled out for 85. Highlight of the match was the partnership between Captain Craig Ballinger posting an unbeaten 122 and Justin Nelson out on the final ball of the innings on 95.
In the third and final match; the Roar visited 4th Div. Caroline Springs. Jason McGann won the toss and elected to bat. Young gun Jordan Tentonello impressed the crowd with a fine 52, and Captain Jason McGann (44*) put on a show with some late innings hitting to help post a reasonable 5/156. The Eagles showed class at the top of the order and batted steadily until needing 7 runs to win in the final over. This over had everything, missed run outs, dropped catches and some easy runs. The Eagles managed a single off the last ball to win what proved to be a very entertaining afternoons cricket.
The Roar now face much fancied premier division team Yarraville and North Div 1 team West Coburg in the quarter finals. Our youngsters will be up against it but I am sure will be up to the challenge with plenty of leadership around them. Let’s all get behind our boys who i am sure will put on great show.
We are Sunbury, hear the mighty Roar !
