Every run, every wicket counts

Every run, every wicket counts

It's been the story each and every week, but the twists and turns continued in round 12 of the Bairnsdale Cricket Association last Saturday.
With just three rounds remaining, all two-day fixtures, a finals berth is the hottest ticket in town and not only can't sides not afford to lose, they don't want their opponents banking vital points.
After day one action, three sides in the top four have worked themselves into a formidable position, while St Mary’s Nagle made a huge statement, already taking first innings points against third-placed Lakes Entrance, reviving a season that looked to be headed for the scrap heap just weeks ago.
The Saints hold a lead of 104 with three wickets in hand and outright points will see them leapfrog the Seagulls, who will be desperate to hang on and maintain a position in the top four.
The Saints were lit up by excellent bowling performances from big guns Ricky Tatnell (5/26) and Andrew Perrin (3/14) who bowled the Seagulls out for just 93 in less than 29 overs.
