Marcellin, Mentone play a tie!

Marcellin 7/233 tied with Mentone Grammar 9/233

Marcellin and Mentone played a thrilling tie in their Round 7 AGS match.  Marcellin posted a very competitive 7/233 in their 60 overs on a great wicket at the Keysborough fields.  Trent Williams top scored with an entertaining 75.  Vice Captain Matt Costa’s great summer rolled on with blistering 48.  In response, Mentone showed positive intent from the beginning, with the openers latching onto anything loose.  Skipper Tim Lincoln showed his customary control with an impeccable line and length.  The match ebbed and flowed in the afternoon with great skills on show by both sides.  It came down to the last ball.  Needing a three off the last ball, Mentone could only manage two (with a run out attempting the third).  Although both sides were dissatisfied with the result, it was a great game of cricket.  120 overs that started at 10am and finished at 6.05!
