Round four of A reserve cricket saw all 10 teams commence play on the same day for the first time this season.
After the entire competition was washed out last round and forfeits and inclement weather had sabotaged the previous three rounds, A reserve finally got fully underway on Saturday around the district.
Last year’s B grade grand final runners up, Natte Yallock, took to the pitch for the first time this season and were defeated heavily by Carisbrook.
After winning all but one game last season, the Swans were fancied to do well in A reserve’s one-day cup, but a heavily stalled start to the season including two forfeits and a wash out, left the side unable to compete in their debut on Saturday.
Natte won the toss and elected to christen their home deck and sitting on 3/73, the Swans didn’t look too bad.
But things collapsed quickly from that point with the side losing all seven of its remaining wickets for 12 runs.
