Dare’s damaging performance

Stoneyford cricketer Dom Dare notched up the sixth century of his career in commanding fashion on Saturday, blasting 134 runs from 84 balls to help his side post the biggest score of the summer; 7-326.

Stoneyford cricketer Dom Dare brought back memories of his breakthrough season in 2015-16 after producing a barnstorming knock to lead his side to victory over Colac West.

The Maroon Caps skipper notched up the sixth century of his career in commanding fashion on Saturday, blasting 134 runs from 84 balls to help his side post the biggest score of the summer – 7-326.

The knock was Dare’s best in almost three seasons, when he blasted 209 in a one-day match against Birregurra to notch up his fourth triple figure score of the campaign.

Dare has enjoyed a solid start to the current season, leading the competition in runs after scoring 254 at an average of 50.8 from five matches.

The 22-year-old said he wanted to make the most of his early season form during Saturday’s knock at Pirron Yallock.

Dare, who cleared the ropes four times and hit 13 boundaries, put on a 121-run knock with Englishman George Edwards, who finished unbeaten on 77.

He said former first-class quick Edwards’ talent with the bat had come as a surprise for the Maroon Caps.
