An 88 run innings from Adam Whatley almost got Camden Campbelltown Ghosts a rare victory on the weekend.
Batting first, the Ghosts compiled 236, one of their best efforts this season.
They had the home side, St George, 6 for 166 when time ran out and had to settle for a draw.
Whatley’s patient innings of 248 minutes deserved three figures, but it was not to be, falling on 88 while facing his 168th ball.
The draw does mean that in the last three matches the Ghosts have recorded a victory, a loss and a draw.
William Salzmann chipped in with a neat 48 batting at number seven, while there were also ghandy contributions from Nathan Stapleton (31) and the tail.
Whatley and Salzmann also picked up two wickets each, giving them a very good day at the office.
Unfortunately, other results didn’t go their way, so with four rounds before the completion of the 2021-22 season, the Ghosts find themselves in the wooden spoon spot.
They have 15 points, while the two teams above them, Blacktown and Penrith, are on 19.
First innings wins are worth six points, so the Ghosts will be looking to snag at least one if not two to avoid the dubious honour of finishing last.
Next round they’re at home to Sydney University, followed by a key match away with Blacktown.
In the final two rounds the Ghosts clash with neighbours Liverpool at Rosedale Oval and finish the season on Saturday, March 12 at Raby where they will host Mosman.
