Confidence is building as the Trinity Old Scholars Cricket Club heads towards finals, with all three sides making significant statements on the weekend.
The A grade has put itself in a very good position to achieve a third-straight outright are 5/128 following a good bowling effort to dismiss Concordia cheaply on their home deck – virtually securing first innings points.
At the crease are debutant Liam Nottle (8) and Nick Goodman (6), while Fatherhood has given Ali Forward a boost, making a crunching half century.
Meanwhile, the B grade were needing everything to go right to sneak from fifth into the top four and they’ve done a good job of setting themselves up.
The boys rolled through Pembroke for 105 and find themselves having secured first innings points with Harrison Varley (27*) and Adrian Zorich (52*) unbeaten.
Meanwhile, our C grade took on top side Marion on a decent-sized ground and with Kyle Presbury leading the way we as we accounted for them.
Presbury modestly belted his way to 178 and it looked like Ali Forwood’s club record 186 (2009/10) was under threat.
It was not to be, however, as a run out ended his big knock. Matt Knox made 50, while Tim Viner-Smith hit 39 in our 6/301.
Marion, despite having a good crack, fell short, making 6/257. Jace Morgan took 2/21.
This week’s match will see the C grade take on bottom side, Goodwood, and aim to secure second spot and a home final.
Remember, it’s TOS Karaoke this Saturday night in the Pavilion, from 6.30pm and it’s sure to be a good night.
Also, Sunday is the women’s side’s last minor round game and a win gives them a slim chance of playing finals. Best of luck, ladies.
This week’s games: A grade v Concordia (Away), B grade v Pembroke (Waldeck), C grade v Goodwood (Gawler River), Women v Reynella (Away).
