Riverside needing big effort

RIVERSIDE will need a top effort from its bowlers this weekend during day two of its Para Districts grade one clash with Craigmore.
Riverside won the toss and elected to bat on Saturday, and Aaron Schultz (25) and Sam Robinson (20) put on a 35-run opening partnership.
Ben Knox (33) and Ben McMullen (20) were also handy, as their side made 166 all out.
Craigmore reached stumps 0/9 in reply.
Meanwhile, Angle Vale will be hoping its first innings 206 is enough to overcome table-topping Salisbury West.
Willi Sewell had a day out for Westies, taking 6/65 from his 18 overs, but his efforts couldn’t stop the Vale posting a defendable total.
A dominant Dublin outfit has One Tree Hill on the ropes heading into day two.
The Billiegoats made just 104 after they were sent into bat.
In reply, Dublin opener John Crosbie made 62 before he was bowled, and his side currently sits 5/155 overnight.
Lastly, Virginia is well placed for victory heading into the second day of action against Parafield Gardens.
Openers Shaun Lay (38) and Anthony Bascombe (64) put on 80 runs to set up the remainder of the innings.
John Natsias (35) was another contributor, as his side was bowled out for 256.
In grade two, Craigmore is on the way to hunting down Central United’s 146.
Brad Woodward top-scored for the Units with 32, but his side had a number of passengers.
Craigmore is 1/18 at stumps.
In grade three, Parafield Gardens has already defeated Riverside on first innings.
Riverside batted first and made 7/116 before declaring.
The Gardens breezed past that total and made 207.
In grade four, North Eastern Knights defeated ATCO by 45 runs.
The victors built on Steve Prisk and Mark Wiskar’s opening partnership of 89 to make 212.
Despite Dave Boulton’s 55, ATCO was bowled out for 167.
In grade five, Angle Vale thrashed Eyre Royals by nine wickets.
The Royals were bowled out for just 51.
An unbeaten 36 from Christopher Howell helped the Vale surpass the score in 8.4 overs.
