St Pauls win away, as Toorak-Prahran fall just short
Meanwhile at Orrong Park, St Pauls notched up an impressive away win in another game where the side batting second had a red-hot go, but also came up short. Batting first St Pauls were in early trouble with both openers dismissed cheaply. But a superb partnership between skipper Kieran Nolan (94 from 172) and Bernie Ruaro (125 from 170) set up a healthy 312. For Toorak Prahran, Shubham Pandey was the pick of the bowlers - 5/58 from 20 overs. Toorak-Prahran's opener Harry Fitzpatrick (78 from 156) played a perfect anchor role in the chase. Matt Gobbo hit a sparkling 113 from 127 and Toorak-Prahran were a chance. When he was dismissed, the batting fell away and Toorak-Prahran came up short. Sean McKay (4/89) and Luke Mason (4/58) shared the bowling honours.
Glen Waverley's bowlers too strong against Burwood Uniting Canterbury
Glen Waverley's attack proved too much of a handful for Burwood Uniting Canterbury - Burwood Uniting Canterbury's 142 was never going to be enough to defend. Spinner Monty Rana (4/26) cashed in on the work of the medium/quicks who bowled disciplined lines and lengths. Some lower order resistance from Trent Ryan (45 from 81) was a rare highlight for Burwood Uniting Canterbury. In response, a patient 66 (189) from Glen Waverley opener Declan Foley provided the foundation in the chase. Burwood Uniting Canterbury's bowlers never waved the white flag - Dasun Senevirathna (2/40) and Malinga De Silva (1/41 from 26) worked hard.
