Gordon 4th grade skipper Stuart Bromley lost the toss and the Stags were sent in on a wicket, that soon began to crumble.
In fact it was a day where most batsman chipped in including Stuart Bromley who added a solid 35 aswell as Liam Windell with 24, Manus Chauhan 11 and Vik Nehru 11*.
Naba dug in to help the Stags post a competitive total.
By now the pitch at both ends had started to crumble and made it difficult for batsman and for bowlers to get proper grip.
The Sharks had a tough period to get through and finished at 7/35 Stumps. An outright was needed if the Stags were to progress through to the semis.
The bowlers took the last three wickets in 8 overs and Sutherland were forced to follow on.
Matt Keane took 3/4 in the first innings!
At 7/53 it looked as though there we’d have some early beers, however a stubborn sixth and seventh wicket partnerships put an end to that.
Mitch Kleem was the only casualty, being given out to a delivery that clipped his left shoulder. Dash Ratnam and Cam New did an outstanding job getting us to the end.
