Raiders off to a flyer


Round one of the Traralgon and District Cricket Association Neilsons Builders Cup was washed out after a great week of sunshine.

However, all games got started with most fixtures squeezing in 20 to 28 overs.

Rovers v Raiders

Raiders won the toss and got off to a flyer after electing to bat.

The Sharks got on top early and were cruising to a big win when rain stopped play with Traralgon West in dire straits at 7/58.

Lee Stockdale took 4/12.

Glengarry v Gormandale

Gormandale sent Glengarry into bat and when play ceased Glengarry was 4/54 off 21 overs.
