Junee Commercial Stallions, Elders Cup cricket report

Junee Commercial stallions have kept their undefeated streak alive in a tight finishing game against the Family Hotel from Gundagai.

Junee captain, Will McGrath, won the toss on the weekend and elected to bowl first.

New opening pair Will Mcgrath and Stephen Turk filled the void of the missing opening Junee pair Trent Charlton and Joe Crowder, and bowled tight from the start.

Good fielding kept the pressure on the Family Hotel before big hitting Dane O’Hehir took to the Junee attack blasting a quick 50 before Hayden Diggins picked up the breakthrough.

Junee then dropped a few catches and let Gundagai slip to a total of 170 at the change of innings.

Junee then got off to a fast start with openers Nathan Charlton and Stephen Turk scoring 26 and 27 respectively.

The Commercial then stumbled and fast wickets fell through the innings.

Mick Butler then steadied the innings and scored a match winning 77 not out as Junee managed to sneak past the total and to keep their spot on the top of the Elders Cup premiership.

Junee Commercial stallions will now play the also undefeated Woolpack Lippers from Tumut at Gundagai this Saturday in what is sure to be a tight game.
