Yaralla thumps decider rivals BITS with marvellous form

TRENT Sorohan ripped through the BITS batting line-up on the weekend, quickly vanquishing any thoughts of an astounding comeback in reply to his side's 328.

One of a number of players in the Yaralla side in marvellous form, Sorohan sent a message to BITS, who have somehow found themselves with a grand final spot.

Playing the Yaralla side who demolished them over two weekends, the task is now for Yaralla to keep their form, and captain Chris Bye is keen to do so.

"We have seven or eight in form at the moment, so hopefully the weather stays away," he said.

Bye himself is one of the players with runs on the board, scoring a century in the two-day match against BITS.

But the demolition is over now, and the future aligns the two clubs at the same venue next weekend over two days of 100 overs each.

Beginning Saturday at 9.30am, Yaralla will host the grand final and look to again wipe BITS away.

Dave Webber's side has a different idea though. After readying for commiserations, the side found out a grand final spot was theirs.

Immediately forgetting the Yaralla drubbing, the task now is this week's decider after sneaking past The Glen on the table by the narrowest of margins.

"We were behind by 0.08 and we got in by 0.7," Webber said, a few runs and wickets late in play helping the cause.

"We will need to bat a lot better. We didn't have the right focus and got skittled."

The attention will be there for the final match of the year though.
