FOR the third game against Kooweerup the match has been drawn due to wet weather.
Unfortunately for Tooradin, the team needed a good win to make the finals and so it wasn’t to be this season.
Chasing Kooweerup’s 329 they were 5/148 at tea when the rain came and stopped play in the 43rd over of the day.
Aaron Avery continued his good form to be 67 not out. He was supported by Ash Adams hard hitting 26, Cal O’Hare 19 and Brenton Adams 14.
