FOSTER A2 captain Josh Toner is in rare air at the moment.
On Saturday he made his second century in a row, and his side beat OMK very comfortably at the Foster Golf Club.
After winning the toss and batting, Foster recovered nicely from the loss of an early wicket and Toner was on his way to another big score.
Brad Coates batted at first drop and the two put on a whopping 162-runs for the first wicket.
The partnership was broken when Toner was caught out, just after reaching triple figures.
Coates went on to make 72 and with a 37 from Mitch Jones, Foster reached 5/257.
OMK found some runs from their middle order batsmen, but it was nowhere near enough and their 40 overs finished with them on 5/109, 148 runs behind.
Heppell’s hundred gets MDU win over Glen Alvie
MDU’S Ben Heppell was causing all sorts of issues for Glen Alvie on Saturday, as he worked his way to an unbeaten 108*.
Captain Joel Sinclair 24 and Heppell started the match nicely, putting on 79 runs for the opening dig, but when Nick Eddy arrived the runs really started coming.
Eddy and Heppell put on 116 runs for the second wicket and Eddy was dismissed on 71 off 68 balls.
The hosting MDU finished their innings on 3/230, putting Glen Alvie in an almost unwinnable situation.
Glen Alvie had some decent knocks from Ben McRae 33, Nathan Findlay 43, and Andrew Brown 27* but it couldn’t match MDU, and they fell short by 62 runs.
Korumburra come through in the clutch
KORUMBURRA held on for a three-run win against Nyora on Saturday, leaving the newcomers in second last position on the ladder.
The Cobras batted first at Nyora, and their openers Tom Crocker 50 and Rumesh Rangana 40 both were in fine form.
But their middle order struggled, except for Nathan Allen who made 32 vital runs and pushed Korumburra to 6/178 at the close of innings.
Nyora were buoyed by good scores from Daniel Esler 35 and Kade Anderson 21, but the runs really started coming when Jake Hackett arrived.
He worked his way to 67 but when two of his teammates fell in a row at the end of the 39th over, the pressure was on.
He needed to make 12 runs to win, but he was dismissed, and Korumburra completed a team hattrick.
The Nyora tail enders fought back hard, but they couldn’t do enough in the end and ultimately fell three runs short at 9/175.
Club crush Killy Bass under lights
WONTHAGGI Club comfortably handled Kilcunda Bass under the lights at Bass Recreation Reserve on Friday night.
The hosts batted first and not one of their players could score over 20, getting bowled out for 84.
Mitch Thomas would’ve been pleased with his performance (2/6 off eight) as would’ve Mark McCall (3/12 off eight).
Kilcunda Bass took two Wonthaggi wickets in their defence, but Dave Britt 39 and Thomas saw them over the line just two wickets down in the 19th over.
