IT has been a week of celebration for Spring Gully after the Crows took out the Emu Valley Cricket Association grand final.
For the second time this season, the Crows upset the highly fancied Sedgwick to take the division one EVCA title.
Jesse Marciano was the star with 57 on day one and 2/10 on day two, as the Rams collapsed to fall 81 runs short of Spring Gully’s modest score of 204.
EVCA champion player Matt Dwyer made 23 for the Rams, Scott McKenzie made 24 not out and Andrew Sheehan added 25 but a middle order collapse of 5/35 saw the Rams with too much work to do.
Byron Perrin again bowled well, taking 4/30 off 14 overs, while Rhys Webb was incredibly economical going for two runs from his 11 overs.
It is the second time in recent years Sedgwick has failed on the big stage, after losing to Mandurang three seasons ago.
In other divisions, Emu Creek was crowned division two premier despite 7/74 from Maiden Gully’s Greg Burns.
Emu Creek also won the first of the division three grand finals, with section two of the competition taken out by West Bendigo.
