Royals v Seymour
Seymour has climbed to second spot on the B-grade ladder, after a strong victory against Royals at Bennet Oval on Saturday.
While locals enjoyed gourmet food and wine at the Tastes of the Goulburn event on Station St, Seymour’s bowlers also had a day out, with Lachlan Drummon, Joseph Pollock, Hayden Gawne, Brodie Poynton and Simon van Duinen all claiming wickets.
Jake Sutherland (10) and Shaun Green (17) made some headway for the Royals, but their side was bowled out for just 53 runs in the 37th over.
Tim Orgill then started well for the Royals, taking 1-11 off four overs, but their total was always going to be near impossible to defend, with the home side ultimately going down by eight wickets.
