Baz's XI (CCC B Grade) have a tough chase ahead of them after the first day's play of their semi-final against Hamilton at Hamilton Secondary College Oval.
After captain Will Hillier called incorrectly at the toss, his team were inserted into the field, but John Zadow gave them a perfect start with a wicket from the fourth ball of the innings.
Already the winner of the Section 3 A&SCA bowling trophy, John then proceeded to collect another three for the day and increase his season tally to 35 wickets. Older brother Joseph finished with five for 36 for his second consecutive five wicket haul.
Hamilton's score of 184 sets an imposing target, but a fast outfield will provide value for shots.
Coromandel had a mixed day in the field; there were some good catches and fine ground fielding, blemished by a couple of dropped chances. But undoubtably the highlight of the day was the brilliant one handed screamer, running back, by Matt Moulton at gully. His feat was complemented by another catch - diving to his right - earlier in the day, and a relentless effort to dive and save runs. It was a day on which most balls that beat the field found their way to the boundary.

An unbeaten eighth wicket stand of 63 between Captain Josh McManus and Grant Wannan has produced a "back from the dead" win for the C Grade over Coromandel Ramblers in the first of three matches to played for the Magarey-Benson Shield in 2015/16.
Chasing 124 to win from 40 overs, in the only scheduled one day match for the season, Coromandel collapsed to 7 for 69 and at the final drinks break were faced with the daunting task of scoring 53 from the remaining 10 overs.
Josh "Rove" McManus found a willing ally in Grant "Grunter/Boonie" Wannan and soon the runs began to flow. With a clear plan to attack the legside, McManus found the boundary on six occasions, bisecting the strategically placed legside field with precision.
Wannan scored the winning runs with 14 balls to spare, and celebrated by spanking the next two for four to bring a close to proceedings. He finished unbeaten on a run-a-ball 26 with McManus on 32.
The partnership was not without its fair shair of luck - McManus was dropped from a skied ball after having scored only one run. How different things could have been ...
Earlier in the day, a fine bowling and fielding performance restricted Coromandel Ramblers to a modest score of 123 on a moderately sized ground with a fast outfield. Sam Fotheringham tied the batsman down with an opening spell of 2 for 2 from five overs. Matt Moulton and Grant Wannan collected three wickets each while Peter Zacpal's unplayable yorker increased his career tally to 977!
After the Carpenter-Billett opening combination produced 24 runs, Matt Moulton enjoyed a career highlight with his first six in senior cricket. He assisted a hip-high full toss over the fine leg boundary into a neighbouring property at the Northern end of Weymouth Oval, producing a delay of about five minutes.
1-41 after 15 overs at drinks, the wickets fell quickly after the break following some poor shots and soon the side had collapsed to 7 for 69 ... before Rove and Boonie saw the team home.
Coromandel will now seek to claim the shield with a win in either of the remaining two matches. The respective 3rd XIs meet again at Blackwood Hill Oval in round 10, after the B Grades play at Hawthorndene oval in round 8.
