Chisholm & Gamon Round!: T20 grand final at Elwood on Wednesday!, Ones & Twos lose again as Cosmas tons up!

December 8, 2015 No Comments


Good morning Elwood players & supporters,

Firstly, we are proud to announce that Round 6 is named after club sponsor, a massive supporter of the local community and Elwood’s very own, born and bred, real estate agency, Chisholm & Gamon. Located on Ormond Road, whether you are looking to buy, looking to sell, wanting to rent, please go and see Torsten, Amanda and the excellent folk at Chisholm & Gamon!

Secondly, on Wednesday night at Elwood, starting at 5.15pm, Elwood will host the SECA Twenty20 Grand Final against West Bentleigh. This is a showcase event for the club and, with a favourable weather outlook, should have the support of many clubs across the competition. The club implores all our players, supporters, parents, sponsors and friends to come down on Wednesday night for two reasons: 1) to support the boys as we strive for our first piece of silverware in seniors for a number of seasons and 2) to show the competition the excellent support our club has. The club looks forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday night! Good luck boys!

Thirdly, we had a disappointing round with our seniors with only the Thirds and Fifths winning. However, results went our way and our top five senior sides are still right in the mix for finals almost halfway through the season. In good news, congratulations to club great Anesti Cosmas who scored his third hundred for the club on Saturday with a fine 104 not out — and in a losing side. Well done Cosi!

For our juniors, there was some really good signs from last weeekend’s games. The 16As had a tie while the 16Cs had tehir first win for the season! Well done boys! The 14As won while the 14Bs and Cs both couldn’t get the points. In the 12s, the C & Ds won, but the A, Bs and Rookies all put up really good fights.

Get to training this week, get to selection night on Thursday and come down on Wednesday ngiht to support the boys in the T20 grand final!

Go Elwood.

Longmuir Shield: 1st XI (136) def by. Mackie 1 (177) at Elwood:

Skipper Nathan Harris lost the toss and Mackie decided to bat. As he has done all year, Dominic Bulcock made a massive impact into the opposition’s top order, taking the top 3 batsmen and finishing with 4/39 off 19 overs. Despite the early inroads, and a few Elwood players carrying niggles, Mackie fought back from 5/61 and ended up making a competitive 177 from 71.3 overs. Rob De Haan (2/58) and Chanaka Ruwansiri (2/17) were the other Elwood bowlers to get multiple wickets. In reply, Elwodo were in real trouble early when they found themselves at 3/32 with Howard, Young and Ryan Harris all back in the shed. Nathan Harris and Chanaka put on a small fightback before Chanaka copped an interesting LBW decision that ended his rear guard action on 29. Stuey Clark (26) and ob De Haan (25) both fought hard again, but the loss of too many top order batsmen for too little made the run chase difficult and Elwood were eventually bowled out for 136.

Next game: Kingston Heath at Southern Road Reserve


Woolnough Shield: 2nd XI (217) def by. Hampton Central 1 (268) at Simpson Reserve:

Hampton Central won the toss and batted and then proceeded to put on a lot of runs. 268 of them. Despite the run fest, all the bowlers tried very hard and all six bowlers used got a wicket with Saddam Hussein, Jamie Jordan, Chris Phillips and Tom Balme all getting two wickets each. The run chase was always going to be tough but the boys were positive. The unquestionable highlight from the innings was the defiant masterclass that was Anesti “Cosi” Cosmas’s third hundred for the club. Finishing with 104*, Cosi can hold his head incredibly high as he did everything he could to get the boys close to the line. Despite the loss, it was an awesome effort from the boys to put up that sort of fight and hopefully that bodes well for the 2nds last game before Christmas.

Next game: Kingston Heath at Elwood


D Grade: 3rd XI (7/248) def Moorabbin West 2 (7/237) at Elwood:

The Thirds have something akin to momentum at the moment but it felt as though that was somewhat haltered last week at Moorabbin West made a competitive 7/237 out the back at Elwood. Failing to hold their catches and break though, Moorabbin West put on a reasonable total. Nathan Turner (3/48 off 20 overs was the pick of the bowlers). The run chase was always going to have to be a big effort and it was the experienced soldiers in Captain Ray “Duke” Earls platoon that stood up. Opening the batting, the Duke (36) and Kevin Wetdewich (46) put on an excellent 92 run stand that set up the innings. Peter Tsiampas (34) and Hugo Twigg (10) then put on a valuable 37 run partnership before Leigh Josey (54) got the Thirds into striking position before Nathan Turner scored a boundary and then put a six into the croquet club to win the game for Elwood. A mighty run chase and the Thirds season is very much alive!

Next game: St Johns Elsternwick at Caulfiield Park Oval 7


F Grade: 4th XI (133) def by. Omega 4 (19/174) at St Marks Primary School:

Omega won the toss and batted and were 4/33 and Elwood were right on top. Skipper Adrian Fisher (2/16), Nathan Pitkin ( 3/43) and Matt McNaughton (2/30) were the main destroyers. Omega fought back however and managed to post a competitive total of 9/174. In reply, Elwood could not get on top with the bat and struggled to just 133, with John Phillips and Matt McNaughton the 4ths top scorers.

Next game: Chelsea Heights/Aspendale Gardens 3 at Elwood


G Grade: 5th XI (256) def CUCC Kings 2 (222) at Peanut Farm:

The Fifths season is gathering steam and it delivered its second great win in as many round son Saturday. Facing a top of the ladder side, the Fifths posted a strong 256 at the Peanut Farm with young gun Harvey Emerson (64), Zac Leiser-Moore (76) and Gavin Phillips (41) doing the bulk of the damage. In reply, the CUCC Kings were always going to have a crack and it was Hamish Marshall who st odd up taking 3/40. Hammer was well supported by all bowlers, particularly Harvery Emerson (2/27) and Elliot Jones (2/16). Keeper Andy Dillon tool an impressive five caches as well. A great win by the boys!

H Grade: 6th XI (9/214) def by Mackie 4 (2/221) at Lagoon Reserve

The Sixths made a strong start posting 9/214 thanks to a stronger side this week. Club great Patty Reilly (84), Julian Twigg (43), Wasif Latif (34) and young gun Eoin O’Mahony (17) all helped get the score to a very competitive total. In replpy, it proved to be hard work for the bowlers at the Mackie chased the total down with the loss of just two wickets.
