COLLEGE struck form with an emphatic victory against St Andrew’s on Saturday to assume second place on the Bendigo Bank HDCA A grade premiership ladder.
Having struggled with the bat for much of the summer, College has posted scores of 187 and 175 in its last two turns at the wicket to assume favouritism for the Dundas Cup with three matches until the finals.
Having won the toss on Saturday, Hamish Bailey proceeded to post his highest score of the season to date as he led the Eagles to an imposing tally of 8-175 at Young Oval.
He and Heath Schmidt made their customary steady start to proceedings as they looked to take the shine from the new ball.
They added 24 from the first 10 overs before Schmidt was caught at the wicket by Geoff Barker for 13 from the bowling of Josh Evans.
This brought Angus Brown to the wicket to join his skipper and the side was looking the pair to continue the form they showed against Macarthur the previous week when they added 120 for the second wicket.
