This weekend saw the first two days of the three day brand finals in local cricket. All 3 games were hard fought battles.
The RPP Match of the Day Sorrento were bundled out for 51. Baxter's Sri Lanka import Chaminda Sattami took 5 wickets. In reply Baxter managed a lead with 108. Sorrento batting for a second time are sitting on 3 -166, a lead of 110.
In District, Somerville is in a solo position having bowled out Red Hill for 170 and taking a 50 run lead with two wickets in hand.
The Sub-District game is delicately poised with Rosebud compiling 152 and Pearcedale sitting on 7-108 at close of play.
All 3 games have a day's play of 80 overs next Saturday.
The RPP cricket commentary team will again be positioned at Mornington for the fascinating conclusion of Sorrento and Baxter.Words Neil Williams
