The two-day competition resumed on Saturday as the Prem men took on OBC at Elmwood Park. Another distinctly green looking wicket saw Sydenham win the toss and not hesitate to ask OBC to bat.
It was a day of drama for the club and its top teams this week. The Prem Men had a big victory but failed by a whisker to make the semi-finals of the one-day competition.
Each week it seems to be either a feast or a famine for the top Sydenham sides but this week we got to dine out with all of the sides getting on the right side of their results; Prem Men & Woman, and both of the Division 1 teams had great days, with other wins in afternoon grades to the Div 6 Cardinals, Div 4 Goats and the Tamils. And the Youth 1st XI won again and remains unbeaten in its competition.
Friday’s rain made tactics for the weekend’s matches pretty clear, win the toss and bowl first – unfortunately none of the Sydenham captains in the top sides seemed to have managed step one, and the results fell according with all the leading sides on the wrong end of their results this week.
