Our "A" grade defeated Canberra by nine for 140 to 99. We won the toss and sent Canberra into bat, Butler and Pinkerton opening the attack. They took two quick wickets to have Canberra down two for 16.
A third wicket partnership, however, took the score to two for 52, before Donald MacGregor was brought on. MacGregor crashed through their defence taking six wickets for 22 runs, Butler and Pinkerton cleaned up the two remaining wickets.
Scarlett and Kennedy opened the batting for Monaro, but their partnership was broken after only 17 runs. Coles and Maiden were the two outstanding batsmen of the day, with Coles scoring 54 runs and Maiden 25. Butler and Kirkpatrick were also two outstanding batsmen.
