Kingower dominate with ball to win flag

KINGOWER won Saturday's Upper Loddon Cricket Association grand final by 10 wickets after Wedderburn capitulated with the bat in its second innings at Bridgewater.

With the game continuing from the previous weekend, Wedderburn resumed its second innings at 4-160, trailing by four runs.

However, the end came quickly for Wedderburn as it lost 6-13 on Saturday to be bundled out for 173 against a Kingower attack led superbly by opening bowler Tim Fishlock.

Fishlock claimed 5-30 off 25 overs, including 13 maidens, while fellow opener Ben Rose followed his first innings 8-30 with 2-67 to finish the match with 10-97 off 43 overs.

Fishlock ended the match with seven wickets after he took two in the first innings.

Wedderburn's loss of 6-13 on Saturday included the last five of those wickets for just three runs.

Having ripped through Wedderburn, it left Kingower needing just 10 runs in its second innings to win the flag.

Openers David Rose (8 n.o.) and Ben Rose (2 n.o.) finished the job for Kingower, taking 3.3 overs to score the 10 runs without the loss of a wicket.
