Only Turf One was able to get a start at the weekend due to the opposition grounds not being ready in the other grades.
It was our first chance to see how our new wicket would play. The centre wicket was dug out and totally re-laid at the end of last season.
Mordialloc won the toss in the grand final rematch and sent us in, claiming an early scalp.
Nath King (61) and Tim Ford (50- below) were brutal-putting on 90 for the second wicket in quick time. Steve Spoljaric picked up where they left off, peeling off a superb 107 which featured 19 boundaries. Jarrod marked his return to the Bloodswith 38 and Skipper Slocs contributed 37.
We declared at 7/313 and had 19 overs at Mordialloc. We weren't able to break through and the visitors finished at 0/66.
