Tyrendarra grinds out tough win against Go-Ports
THE sixth round of the Portland and District Cricket Association’s B grade season concluded on Saturday with a never-say-die effort with the bat from Tyrendarra a key highlight.
Taking on Gorae-Portland at Tyrendarra, Go-Ports batted first on the opening day of play and were dismissed for 167 in the 62nd over.
Tyrendarra then reached stumps at 3-54 with opener Andrew Stuchbery (14 from 45) and Hamish Aitken (0 from 5) unbeaten at the crease.
When play resumed Stuchbery (19) and Aitken (0) were unable to add much more to the total before being dismissed, swinging the match in favour of Go-Ports.
After looking in doubt early, Tyrendarra found plenty of runs in the middle order.
