A Vet.

There was only one result from the weekend with most of the round washed out.
Third grade has a good win over Hillgrove in the T20 game played in Armidale.
The Guyra bowlers restricted Hillgrove to 8/101 off their 20 overs. Wicket takers for Guyra wereBrodi Campbell 2/13, Tim Foster 1/17, Simon Brown 1/10, Brendan Williams 3/13 and Steve McElroy 1/6.
In reply Guyra took just 15 overs to get the win for the loss of just three wickets. Taylor Brennan (45) was the best with the bat, well supported by Brock Laybutt (21), and Jack Lockyer (10).
The final round of games are sceduled for this weekend. First grade have the bye, while 2nds will take on TAS on Ted Mulligan Oval, while thirds will be up against City at the Truckstop.
