1st Grade: RPC 6-345 (dec) vs Gordon 5-346 @ Petersham Oval – Lost by 5 wickets

An amazing batting day for Sydney Grade Cricket with 5 1st Grade scores in excess of 300 being chased down. Gordon took up the challenge against RPC’s huge score with partnerships of 23, 159, 104 and 56 before hitting the winning runs off 88.1 overs. Sam Doggett (2-52 off 12 overs), Daniel Sams (2-65 off 19) and Adam Semple (1-37 off 13) shared the wickets. The decision to send RPC in day 1 looked a good one with Kemp, Price and Scicluna out for 70 but the Sams brothers consolidated with a 117 run partnership. When Anthony Sams (80 off 179 balls) went, Semple and Daniel Sams put on 103 before Daniel was out for a maiden 1st Grade century (121 off 187 balls 14 fours 3 sixes). Semple (74* off 109 balls 5 fours 4 sixes) ensured a mammoth total which surprisingly, turned out not to be enough.

The loss sees the side now sitting in 11th position on The Belvidere Cup ladder.

2nd Grade: RPC 5-422 (dec) vs Gordon 325 @ Chatswood Oval – Won by 97 runs

Batting first Adam Docos (38) and Max Moran (40) putting on 72 for the 1st wicket. James Psarakis (59) continued on and at tea, RPC were sitting pretty at 4-205. Henry Thornton and John McLoughlin (60) then put on a partnership of 237. Thornton went on to blast a debut Grade century of 185* in just 213 minutes, with 20 fours and 10 sixes, scoring 150 runs in the final session and helping the side put on 217 to finish the day at 5-422, a new record for 2nd Grade surpassing the previous record of 4-394 against Mosman in 2010-11. From 1-76 in the run chase the Stags lost 4-0 (3 to Mohammed Emram and one to Sam Wood) to be 5-76. It looked all over at 9-233 but the last pair remained defiant putting on 92 before Emram bowled the no.11 leaving the no. 8 on 118* Mohammed Emram (5-103 off 21.4 overs), Barry McCarthy (3-61 off 21) and Sam Wood (2-43 off 15) shared the wickets.

The win sees the side move to 8th on The Abert Cup ladder.

3rd Grade: Gordon 9-262 (dec) vs RPC 103 & 6-100 @ Coogee Oval – Lost by 159 runs

At 5-93 Gordon was struggling against a spirited attack. However, the late order consolidated with 169 runs coming for the cost of just 4 wickets to post a sizeable score. James Tyson (3-74 off 23 overs) and Kushaal Ram (3-36 off 15) did best with the ball. Day 2 brought disaster with Sciascia and Schubert (run out without facing a ball) both out without a run on the board. At 6-37 it looked all over and so it proved to be with only skipper Rod Stafford (29) getting past 16. The follow on didn’t enthuse with Sciascia (22) and Bart Lynch (20*) the best.

The loss sees the side sitting in 19th position on The Mitchell Cup ladder.

4th Grade: RPC 227 vs Sydney University 156 @ Petersham Oval – Won by 71 runs

A brave decision to send Gordon in on a warm dry day paid off. Early wickets to Jaya Murdita (2-30 from 8 overs) was a good start and although the deck flattened out, Kyri Tsalikidis (4-53 from 11) and Nigil Singh (2-55 from 22) made solid contributions to dismiss the Stags for 172 after 50 overs. With 28 overs to bat, RPC lost 3 quick wickets late in the day to finish day 1 a shaky 5-69. The score slumped to 6-96 early day 2 but skipper David Bourke and Oshanka Perera put on a determined 62 before Bourke was out for 73 (11 fours) with 14 to get. Perera (28*) and Murdita (28*) however, safely guided the side to victory.

The win sees the side sitting in 8th position on The Reid Cup ladder.

5th Grade: Gordon 105 & 6-148 vs RPC 184 @ Kensington Oval – Won by 4 wickets

With 22 runs needed for first innings points, Luis Siddall and Jack Standing set about the task calmly and all went well until Siddall played a Watson-like drive which saw him back in the change room admiring the cherry on the shin of his front pad. “Worry not” thought the skipper as Glen Standing joined his son at the crease and the ensuing partnership was as impressive for stroke making as it was for its guile. The father-son partnership put on 63 runs and effectively forced Gordon out of the match.

After finishing 79 runs ahead, the Randy-Petes threw everything at the Gordon batsmen, who, to their credit, pushed for quick runs in an attempt for an out-right victory. However, regular early wickets including a classy run-out from Cameron “Don’t-run-on-this-arm” Fowler held Gordon at bay. The result: six valuable points to the Randy-Petes.
Bring on Saints!

The win sees the side sitting in 10th position on The David Sherwood Cup ladder.

Metro Cup: RPC Green 277 vs Gordon 3-279 @ Beauchamp Oval – Lost by 7 wickets

RP Green arrived at Beauchamp Oval with high hopes of defending 277, a solid score by Metro standards. Unfortunately, Beauchamp Oval has a penchant for throwing up results that go against the grain of sense. Sometimes 120 can be easily defended, but this was not one of those weeks… Having scored a century two rounds before, the Gordon opener piled on the misery with an unbeaten 161, sending the Green attack to all corners of Chatswood. Adam Lee bowled heartily to keep the Greens in the game, but unfortunately, a lackluster fielding effort was only able to account for three Gordon poles before the target was passed in the 55th over. RP Gold will be hoping that the name “Ryan Tullia” won’t be appearing on the team sheet when they face Gordon next week…

The loss sees the side sitting in 12th position on the Triforce Sports Metropolitan Cup ladder.

Metro Cup: RPC Gold 124 & 8-124 vs UNSW Gold 3-182 @ Snape Park – Lost by 7 wickets

Green arrived at Snape Park with justified optimism in their pursuit of Penrith’s 262, needing and even 250 off 80 overs to knock off the reigning champs. George Frazakis and Alexis Coovre gave a solid start, but a flurry of wickets to a disciplined and varied bowling attack left the Greens 5/37. Bala Mohan and newcomer Sunny Mehta dropped anchor and steadied the ship till tea.
Once Sunny was dismissed, the cats smelt blood and cleaned up afterwards, with Bala the last man out for a valiant 29, the total at 98. Penrith again showed they are front runners in this competition. Thinking they could take us out again in 28 overs, Penrith sent us back in to bat. The Greens made a much better fist of it the second time around, finishing at 3/71. Sunny capped off a great debut with 39 not out and comeback kid Joe Harrison chipped in 22.

The loss sees the side sitting in 7th position on the Triforce Sports Metropolitan Cup ladder.
