CENTRAL Park-St Brendan’s has halted Kyabram’s winning run in Cricket Shepparton’s Haisman Shield competition with a 31-run win in a low scoring one-day game at Kyabram on Saturday.
Missing suspended key players, the combine posted a moderate score of 7/158 that still proved too much for Kyabram, who were dismissed in 41.5 overs for a disappointing 127.
CPSB’s skipper Ramadan Yze and keeper Jack McCarten had to watch from the sidelines after misconduct charges imposed from the previous week’s game against Tatura.
Yze copped a three-match ban with a suspended sentence for 12 months and McCarten was outed for one game.
Kyabram’s run chase started promisingly enough, with openers Tim Nelson and Kyle Fitzgerald posting 27, and the side still looked a chance at 4/100.
But it lost its last six wickets for only 27 runs.
Six batsmen got into double figures but Cade Mueller’s 29 was the largest contribution in the batting surrender.
Kyabram currently sits in fourth spot on the ladder and travels to Numurkah this Saturday to meet the third-placed team.
■ KYABRAM’S B grade side proved too good for Tatura, with a deadly spell of bowling from Nick Chambers setting up the win.
Chambers claimed a stunning 6/12 in 8.2 overs to clean up the Tat innings for 150 in 43.3 overs.
In reply, Kyabram lost seven wickets in achieving victory with opener Pat Parsons (42), Jack Young (31) and Jason Parsons (26) ensuring the Kyabram victory for the loss of seven wickets.
■ KYABRAM’S D grade side skittled Tatura for 66 in 34 overs and with opener Wayne O’Neill showing the way with 28 reached 4/74 to execute a six-wicket victory.
■ KYABRAM E grade won its game against Dookie on forfeit.
