FOUR centuries and a hat-trick highlighted an action-packed day in round six of the Bendigo District Cricket Association on Saturday.
White Hills' Mitch Winter-Irving (150), Strathfieldsaye's Ben Devanny (140 n.o.) and the Strathdale-Maristians' pair of Cameron Taylor (161) and Grant Waldron (110) all notched centuries.
And young Bendigo bowler Bailey Goodwin added his name to the BDCA hat-trick club by achieving the rare feat against White Hills at Atkins Street.
The 20-year-old dismissed the Demons' trio of Jayden Sheean (caught and bowled), Linc Jacobs (bowled) and Nick Wallace (bowled) in consecutive deliveries in his 21st over to claim the hat-trick with three unassisted wickets.
Goodwin finished with 4-73 off 25.2 overs, with the last of his wickets Demons' captain Winter-Irving.
Atkins Street again proved a happy hunting ground for Winter-Irving, with his 150 in White Hills' total of 299 his third century at the ground.
At Bell Oval, Strathdale-Maristians broke the 400-run barrier against Bendigo United, smashing 9-408.
The run-feast included a 199-run second wicket partnership between century-makers Taylor and Waldron.
At the QEO, Strathfieldsaye captain Devanny's unbeaten 140 was a brilliant knock under pressure that allowed the Jets to recover from 3-20 to post 7-263 against Sandhurst.
Elsewhere, reigning premier Huntly-North Epsom (3-91) has already taken first innings points against Eaglehawk (79) at Canterbury Park after the Power dismissed the Hawks cheaply for the third-consecutive time.
And Kangaroo Flat has a score of 8-305 to defend against Golden Square at Dower Park.
