IT was a great win for Mirboo
North on Sunday by a side that
had a never say die attitude in this
year’s Central Gippsland Cricket
Association final series.
First it was the history making semi final
win off the last ball to get them a grand final
berth, but it was the sheer will and determination
of the side to come from behind on the second
day’s play against the favourite Latrobe who
have been in the last six Grand Finals but still
not tasted success
Mirboo North’s side, with a blend of youth
and experience, will go down in history as one
of the greatest team efforts to get a flag.
Starting the day at 3 for 80 Latrobe was in
the box seat with seven wickets in hand and 60
runs to get, but again on a wicket that was hard
to score on and an outfield that was extremely
slow and lush, the runs were at a premium and
with Bloomfield not adding to his score from
last week and then Kennedy Johnson out at 85
and back in the pavilion as Josh Taylor bowled
with venom and great line to unsettle with two
wickets and Liam Smit with a wicket.
Freshwater hung around to thwart the bowl-
ing but when he went with the score at 90 the
side really sensed it had the game for the tak-
When Gamage was dismissed by Phoenix
for two the game swung in favour of Mirboo
North but then enter 17 year old Brett Zomer
and Brendan Evans who got their collective
heads down and batted to lunch and the momen-
tum swung in favour of Latrobe and at 8 for 119
the game was open again for the both sides to
stake a claim for victory.
Mirboo North’s medium and fast bowling
was tremendous as well as the chasing down of
runs in the field to restrict Latrobe to 39 runs off
34 exhilarating overs.
The rest break proved decisive for Mirboo
North as both Taylor and Smit were swung back
into the attack, but Zomer who had batted so
well for 21 in 75 minutes of tenacious defence,
snicked one to Mates behind the stumps off
Liam Smit at 124.
The game was back in Mirboo North’s fa-
vour and then Josh Taylor who had bowled
superbly all day got the final breakthrough of
Evans for 16 after an hour at the crease, bowled
on the score of 124.
Latrobe’s destiny was sealed in what can
only be described as a brilliant team effort.
But with some 60 overs left Mirboo North
batted out 24 overs with Shane Peter rock steady
on 28, Jesse Giardina unlucky to be run out on
17 and Adam Mates made a very patient eight.
With the score on 2 for 62 Latrobe conceded
defeat after some 164 overs and only 350 runs
scored in what was a thrilling game of tight and
What an effort from a side that refused to
give in and never gave up right to the end of two
days of tense combative cricket.
A glorious win: the victorious Mirboo North Cricket Club team won an his-
toric Central Gippsland Cricket Association Grand Final against Latrobe on
Tigers win in grand style
