MORE CRICKET – Brown, Rowe hit tons as Emus plunder 7-438 against Cobras
INGLEWOOD has both dished out and been on the receiving end of an outright result in its past two Upper Loddon Cricket Association games.
Going into round 13 sitting second, Inglewood was beaten outright by top side Kingower on Saturday.
Kingower’s Nick Leach claimed a 10-wicket haul for the match as Inglewood was bowled out for 60 and 63 on Saturday in reply to the reigning premiers’ 238.
Leach took 5-7 off nine overs in the first innings and 5-11 off eight in the second for a superb match tally of 10-18 off 17 overs.
Inglewood’s two innings combined were less than what Kingower’s David Rose (125) made on day one.
• Arnold replaced Inglewood in second position courtesy of its 115-run victory over Newbridge at home.
The Redbacks made light work of Newbridge’s 124, answering with 8-239 featuring another solid innings from opener Ryan Metelmann.
Coming off scores of 128 and 73 the previous two rounds, Metelmann continued his sparkling form with 72, while the attacking Matt Giri in his return to the Redbacks side made 62.
The Redbacks were only three wickets down when they reached their target.
• Wedderburn’s Jordan Hargreaves took five wickets in his side’s 45-run victory over Boort-Yando.
Hargreaves bagged 5-20 off 17 overs, including nine maidens, as Boort-Yando was all out for 112 chasing Wedderburn’s 157.
Boort-Yando was 2-2 earlier and later lost its last five wickets for just nine runs.
The win moved Wedderburn a game clear in the top four with one round remaining.
• Bridgewater won by forfeit against Serpentine.
DINGEE scraped over the line by one wicket in a Northern United cricket thriller against Heathcote.

• Colbinabbin opener Chris Guinane outscored Calivil on his own in the Ducks’ 105-run win.

Calivil could muster just 83 in reply. Colbinabbin’s Harry Rathjen took the last three wickets to fall to finish with a burst of 3-4 off 3.5 overs.
• Top side Elmore bounced back from its first loss of the season with a four-wicket win over Raywood.
The Foxes compiled 7-143 after winning the toss and batting before the Redbacks put the foot down in their chase in answering with 6-148 in just 24 overs.
The game featured a pair of half-centuries – 69 to Raywood skipper Kale Hoggins and Elmore’s Joe Harney making 50.
• Bagshot continued its solid form with a third victory in a row against Goornong.
With Zach Webb top-scoring with 45, Bagshot was all out for 149 after being sent in.
