Country’s T20 topples City




The 2019/20 Traralgon and District Cricket Association season began on Saturday with the annual City v Country clash played at Glengarry.

With a star-studded line-up, Chris Lehner’s Country side came out on top in a thrilling final over of the Twenty20 fixture.

Batting first, City were led into a commanding position by openers Ryan Morley (29) and big-hitting Tom Orpe (33) while Brett Chapman smacked 35.

Adam Brady took two wickets for Country while Glengarry star recruit Ruchira Perera took one.

Chasing 119, Country’s innings hit a snag when Lehner (1) and Shippen (16) were taken cheaply but the day was saved by man of the match Kev Stoddart who scored 57 from 53 balls.
