The result was that the Over 70s played on a soft pitch making it hard for batsmen to score runs. Unfortunately Victoria lost the toss and the game.
The Over 60s made 5/213 while Tasmania were all out for 158. Les Quarrell and David Cordy both retired on 50 runs. Bowling figures for the Victorians were Trevor Selby 3/17, Rex Bennett 2/27, G Wilson 2/45 and P McDonald 3/4 off 3.1 overs.
In the evening members of the two teams (and supporters) met for dinner at The Three Steps restaurant at the Colonial Hotel. The shields were presented to the winning teams and we look forward to next year's games in Melbourne.
