Atherton’s winning streak ends

ATHERTON Cricket has been knocked off their recent winning streak, with Mulgrave once again proving why they are this season’s favourites, easily surpassing Atherton’s final score of 131 in just 31 overs.

After winning the toss, Atherton elected to bat.

The early stages saw Charlie Lawrence departing for just six runs, leaving it to Caleb Constant  (21) and Dan Parnell (22) to score the highest for Atherton before it was bowled out in the 38th over.

However, the lower order faced a challenging phase, with wickets falling in rapid succession, with Greg Misener, Angus Vikionkorpi, and Tallas Blaney succumbing at 109, 117, and 130, respectively.

Going in to bowl, Atherton struggled to keep it together as Mulgrave’s Tristan Curmi  and Kobi Johnston managed a good partnership of 81 runs, with Curmi scoring 37 off 58 balls, and Johnston picking up the pace, with 44 off 81 balls.

Wade Matthews and Justin Reid finished the job, remaining not out and reaching the required score in just 31 overs.

Ryan McGrath dominated the bowling for Mulgrave with four wickets, while Charlie Lawrence picked up two for Atheerton.

Atherton is set to play against North’s this weekend at Griffith Park, kicking off at 3pm.
