Magpies keen to hit back

BALLDALE will be out to show its loss to Rand was only a minor hiccup when it takes on Burrumbuttock in the Brocklesby and District Association at Burrumbuttock today.

The ladder leader lost the top-of-the-table clash by seven wickets, with skipper Pat Mitchell eager to put it behind the team.

Mitchell, Matt Ross, Doug Lavis and Michael Linklater should be able to put enough runs on the board to overcome any challenge from Burrumbuttock’s Dave Williams and Ronnie Boulton.

Oaklands takes on Walla and Brocklesby meets Rand.

The ladder is: Balldale 71.82, Rand 71.41, Burrumbuttock 55.16, Brocklesby 41.28, Walla 35.98, Oaklands 21.24.
