Summer Pennant Results Round 4

 Monday, January 04, 2010

Results Round 4 Summer 4BBB Pennant Competition.

Results of Round 4 were fairly even in Section 1, with Valley View drawing against Numurkah, and Rushworth drawing their match with Tallygaroopna. Mooroopna had a 3 & 1/2 to 1 & 1/2  win over Shepparton, who are yet to have a win this season.

In the final round to be held at Kyabram Parkland, the top three clubs are taking on the bottom three. Valley View have a chance in taking over 4th spot and a run in the finals, but have to beat the top team of Rushworth and rely on Tallygaroopna to defeat Mooroopna. The other match is Numurkah against Shepparton. A strong win to Shepparton could see Numurkah drop from 2nd to 5th spot on the ladder if other results go against them.

In Section 2, Kialla remain undefeated at the top of the ladder, and will need to win against HillTop at Rich River this weekend to maintain their position into the finals.
Last Sunday saw HillTop defeat Parkland 3 & 2, Kialla defeated Rich River 4 & 1, and remaining match Merrigum drew with Nagambie. The other matches this weekend will see Merrigum play Parkland, and Rich River take on Nagambie. Whoever wins between Rich River and Nagambie will go into the finals, with Nagambie only needing a draw to keep Rich River out. Merrigum need to win their match against Parkland to ensure a finals berth also.

Could competing Club Captains please contact Graeme Stevens on 0413 845 375 re this Sundays matches, as extreme heat may be forecast for the day. If this is the case, we may start matches an hour earlier, depending on all clubs agreeing to the earlier starting time and weather forecasts.
