Martians v Tower Ravens

Tuesday 2 August 2005, Victoria Park

Tower Ravens won

Martians 90 (16 overs)

Tower Ravens 91 (9 overs)

Tower Ravens' Michael Biggs writes: Tower Ravens beat Martians in the the division 2 title decider. Martians won the toss and elected to bat.

Only a few overs into the match the decision was looking questionable as the Ravens grabbed 3 early wickets before the Martians score moved into double figures. 

Some lower order hitting kept the final score respectable but the Ravens to a man produced their best fielding display of the season (5 catches and 1 run out) to limit any recovery.

At the start 91 to win did not seem a particulary tall order. After 3 overs the match as contest was effectively over as the Ravens blazed a trail to 46-0. A couple of late wickets did nothing to dampen spirits as the Ravens cruised to victory with 7 overs to spare.

League president Bert then presented the division 2 trophy to a delighted skipper Daryl (retiring as skipper after 2 trophies in 2 seasons) making the Ravens holders of the division 1 and 2 trophies (at least until the following week)!

All that was left was the celebrations, as the team and their supporters retired to the pub for some well earned drinks and to dream of division 1 glory next season.
