Colts suffer comprehensive defeat by Laane

Despite this almighty effort from Colts Phelansʼ Branden Wagstaff, Colts went on to suffer a heavy defeat in their first game of the 2019/20 MDCA season.

Colts Phelans’ first game of the season didn’t go quite to plan with the side defeated comprehensively by Laanecoorie Dunolly at the weekend.

Colts’ last one-day season was perfect, with the side undefeated throughout the home and away fixture and easily taking the one-day cup.

A lot has changed since then however, with several of Colts’ best run scorers moving on, leaving the side unable to compete with a heavily stocked Laanecoorie in their debut game of the season after a round one bye.

Laane won the toss on their home deck, electing to bat first and sending Liam Mottram, fresh off a ton haul in round one to the crease alongside international import Justin Bramble.

Mottram personally saw 44 runs in a 106-run partnership before he was claimed by Branden Wagstaff.

Zac Graham (21) partnered with Bramble for 35 runs before Kane Shepherd claimed his first wicket of the day in his A grade return.

Laane coach Matt Smith temporarily partnered with Bramble, before a Shepherd delivery landed in the hands of Colts captain Rhys Egan, dismissing the Barbadian for a game high of 67 runs.
