• A Grade Division 1
A MARATHON bowling spell from coach Charith Keerthisinghe that claimed six wickets has helped Phillip Island bowl Korumburra out for 228 in A Grade Division 1.
Incredibly, five of his six dis-
missals were bowled, in an im-
pressive display of accurate and tight bowling from the left arm orthodox spinner.
He finished with impressive figures of 6/67 off 29.4 overs, including 11 maidens.
Even contributions with the bat helped the Cobras post a defendable score, with Ilan Osman posting 42 runs at the top of the order and Michael Giles (23) and Kallon Rigby (21) also getting starts.
Luke Zanchetta continued his solid form with the bat through the middle order, hitting eight fours and two sixes in his knock of 79.
Peter Edwards hit a quickfire 21 and Pierre Dunlevie remained 23 not out to boost the total.
Inverloch batted out 75 overs against Nerrena, reaching 6/199 at the Inverloch Recreation Reserve.
A sandy surface made for a slow outfield, but solid efforts from Nathan Brayley (45) and Dave Newman (44) helped the home side reach a decent score.
Josh Trease bowled well for the Red Caps with 3/60 off 23 overs, while Nathan Trotto was economical with 0/11 off 11 overs including five maidens.
Gerard Murphy played a handy cameo role with the ball, removing both Brayley and Newman on his way to 2/22 off six overs.
Walter Taberner improved the outlook for the Stingrays, grinding out 38 not out.
Town versus Kilcunda-Bass at Scorpion Park was washed out and OMK versus Wonthaggi Club at Outtrim was washed out, so both matches will be played as one-dayers this week.
Loos’ day out
• A Grade Division 2
SKIPPER Daniel Loos has batted Wonthaggi Miners into a strong position with a brilliant 109 against Glen Alvie in A Grade Division 2 at Butch West Oval.
Loos quickly found himself at the crease when opener Blake Andrighetto was caught off the bowling of David Hales with the score at 1/11.
When Gerard Kent departed for 13, the Miners disappointing results so far this season looked set to continue.
But Loos and Cam Thomas dug in for their side, sharing a 131-run partnership for the third wicket.
Thomas eventually fell victim to Hales, trapped LBW for a well-made 56 which included seven fours.
Josh Andrighetto joined Loos and the pair kept the scoreboard ticking over with a 61-run partnership, before Loos was finally caught off the bowling of John Reid.
His knock included 16 fours and has put his side in prime spot to win its first match of the season.
Andrighetto hit a valuable 40 and Clint Honeysett added 22 runs, as the Miners finished at 8/285 at stumps.
Hales toiled hard throughout the day for 4/95 off 28.4 overs, while John Reid picked up 3/94 off 23 overs.
Play was abandoned in the Foster versus Poowong-Loch and Imperials versus MDU contests due to inclement weather, while Koonwarra-Leongatha/RSL has the bye this round.
