Winning nervously, losing tragically since 1979
Reds Firsts finished the season on a high note, climbing to seventh place by overhauling Melbourne City’s 170 and knocking them out of the finals. It was a welcome turn-around from the previous game’s embarrassing batting performance. The Seconds did not fare so well, suffering a terrible collapse against accurate swing bowling after a strong effort with the ball.
FIRSTS: Reds 7-176 (A.Kahn 58* K.Price 36) d Melb City 170 (K.Price 4-20 F.Healy Wood 4-39)
SECONDS: Youlden-Parkville 66 (C.Chapman 5-19 G.Scott 3-8 T.Meldrum 2-2) d Reds 32
