• A Grade Division 1
IN A rain affected weekend, only one game went the distance in A Grade Division 1 and it ended in a draw.
Wonthaggi Club and Outtrim battled it out despite a large rain delay just after the lunch break.
Batting first Club posted a nice first innings score or 7/245 thanks to a brilliant 78 from opener Sam Huitema and a solid 60 from Ryan Thomas.
Some late hitting from Daniel Turton 25 and Jack Sheerin 32 boosted Club’s momentum heading into the change of innings.
OMK bowlers Peter Dell 2/31 and Daniel Mock 2/56 did their best to restrict the Club batsmen in the damp conditions.
Club bowlers Zane Macdermid and Mark McCall both struck early before the rain set in, removing the opening pair of Tom Wyatt for 4 and Adam Miller 18.
A slight delay led to four overs being lost off the game, meaning Club had to bowl the Diggers out if they wished to achieve victory.
OMK captain Daniel Mock 51 and Jason Wilson 56 both steadied the ship for Diggers before both falling victim to the bowling of Macdermid.
The English combination of Callum Honeyman and Daniel Lloyd made sure there would be no result, fending off the remaining overs.
Macdermid finished with 4/42 off seven overs.
In other games, Inverloch will be thanking their lucky stars after being washed at 5/61 against Phillip Island.
The Stingrays were on the ropes after facing 25 overs of rampant Phillip Island bowling, Simon Kirton 2/13 and Jona Watts 2/11 were doing the damage for the Sharks before the rain showed up and ruined the party.
Brett Debono top scored for Inverloch with 26.
Korumburra and Glen Alvie managed to get 11 overs in before rain stopped play for the day, the Cobras finishing at 2/73 with Shane Dole 32 and Matt Houston 21 not out while Daniel Diwell 1/13 and Jamie Smith 1/29 took the only wickets for the Alvie.
The match between Kilcunda Bass and Leongatha Town was completely abandoned due to rain.
Foster cause upset win
A Grade Division 2
FOSTER have secured their second win of the season defeating the Wonthaggi Miners by two wickets in A Grade Division 2.
The Miners started well with openers Blake Andrighetto 54 and Cam Thomas 45 pushing the scoreboard to 0/93 before Graeme Watkins struck with the wicket of Andrighetto.
Continuing to lose wickets far too regularly the Miners were all out for 165, Graeme Watkins 3/28 and Daniel O’Keefe 3/32 did the damage for Foster.
Despite losing run scorer Watkins for just 4, the Tigers were steady in their run chase with Mitchell Jones 60 and Murray Lynch 42 doing most of the heavy lifting.
Jon Rumbold did his best to keep Foster below the required target taking 4/37 off his eight overs, but it wasn’t enough as the Tigers finished 8/166 in the final over.
Koonwarra-Leongatha/RSL made their small run chase against MDU more difficult than it had to be, chasing down the modest MDU total seven wickets down.
Some tight Koony bowling left MDU 9/119 after their allotted 40 overs with Tom Elliot 3/20 and James Rushton 2/21 claiming wickets.
Troy Sinclair top scored for MDU with 31 on a disappointing batting card.
The Cougars looked steady early with Sam Hughes 24 and Ben Perry 31 getting the runs flowing but the loss of a few quick wickets shocked the middle order and suddenly Koony were 7/111.
But thanks to the cool heads of Jack Hughes and James Rushton, Koony snuck past the total in the 24th over.
Craig Hoober was the best bowler for MDU with 4/17 off five overs.
