A reserve’s one-day competition was stalled again with just three of five games played to completion.
After round one which saw just three games played due to multiple forfeits, round two on Saturday was marginally better with four games started and one, between Clunes and Creswick, washed out.
The Imperials wouldn’t have been too disappointed that the sides were forced to call it a day and split the points as they were sitting at a shaky 5/21 11 and a half overs into the match.
Luke Thomas was Creswick’s best runscorer with 14 not out, while Clunes’ Alan Kenna had taken a very economical 5/6 after bowling five and a half overs.
Barring one-day grand final qualification, the sides won’t meet again until round 11 next year to settle the score.
Reigning B grade one-day premiers Talbot claimed its first A reserve win at the weekend with a very confident eight-wicket win over Laanecoorie Dunolly.
Laane lost its first wicket early on with Zac Polinelli (2) claimed by Karl Gunther as the score read nine.
Replacement Patrick Pritchard was bowled by Ryan Kenden before he could make any contribution, leaving the side at 2/10.
