Wickets aplenty at Colbo

FOR the first time since January 18, there was play in the Northern United Cricket Association on Saturday.

The NUCA's past month has been interrupted by a general bye, two heat-outs and rain, but the final round was completed on Saturday.

Colbinabbin defeated Bagshot by 77 runs at home in a game where 30 wickets fell for the day.

Batting first, Colbinabbin was bowled out for 125, but it proved far too many for Bagshot, which was bundled out for just 48 in reply.

Colbinabbin - which ended the season fifth - then batted a second innings and was bowled out for 54.

The game featured three six-wicket hauls.

Bagshot's James Sexton took 6-11 in the first innings and Marc Sherwell claimed 6-25 in the second, including a hat-trick, while Colbinabbin's Steven Morgan bagged 6-12.

• Dingee maintained top spot on the ladder after a 47-run win over Raywood.

Kyle Patten (69 n.o.) and star all-rounder Scott Lawry (58) both made half-centuries in Dingee's score of 7-175, while Raywood was restricted to 128 in its chase.

• In a preview of their semi-final, Heathcote was too strong for Calivil.

After bowling Calivil out for 100, Heathcote replied with 9-163, led by 55 from opener Darcy McLean.

• Goornong (143) rounded out its season with an 18-run victory over bottom side Elmore (125).
