MDU remains ladder leader A Grade, Div 2

MEENIYAN Dumbalk United’s winning form has retained its position at the top of the ladder with a convincing win over Fish Creek/ Tarwin.
The win was set up by Craig Hoober and Nick Eddy batting at three and four.
With their openers leaving the crease without impact the pair formed a partnership of 85 runs which formed the solid foundation stone of a 6/235 innings for MDU.
Eddy’s 49 included six boundaries.
Danckert and Pouw took two wickets each for Fish Creek Tarwin.
In reply Fishy struggled to reach 115, all out in the 31st over.
A. Eddy did all the early damage with the ball.
He finished with 3/21.
Burge bowled three overs late in the day and finished 2/11 but had also lent a hand in the field to dismiss the opening batsman.
Koonwarra L/RSL fell short two weeks running.
It struggled to make 100 runs which the home team Poowong Loch was able to rein in by the 31st over with the loss of only two wickets.
W. Pollock hit six boundaries and a six on his way to 60 not out.
Poowong Loch had multiple wicket takers sharing the spoils in its demolition of the visitors.
Korumburra and Glen Alvie were on equal points prior to their match at the Korumburra Recreation Reserve.
The home team won the toss, batted and reached 239 with the loss of two.
S. Dole was not out just shy of a century on 96 with eight fours and a six.
On his way to 64, K. Rigby also hit eight boundaries.
Glen Alvie’s attack barely made a dent as Korumburra threw down the gauntlet.
The challenge was on.
But the challenge was an anti-climax in this instance.
Korumburra was as fierce with the ball as it had been with the bat and in the face of such an unrelenting attack, Glen Alvie limped along to its innings total of 100.
D. Hateley top scored with 21.
K. Dorman took seven overs to claim three middle/lower order scalps for 19 runs.
Kilcunda/Bass with one win on the board travelled to Foster with none.
There was a lot of pride at stake in this game.
Killy/Bass struck the first blow by winning the toss and elected to bat.
It dug in to record a solid start and had 51 runs on the board by the time its first wicket fell.
There were several bankable contributions in the innings total of 189.
A. Oats made 41, J. Tregear 39 and A. Larcombe 38.
For Foster G. Tanner took 3/32.
In reply Foster’s efforts were stymied by the likes of J. Mahood who took 4/9 off his eight overs which included three maidens.
Foster was all out in the 39th for 91 runs and in one of the tightest bowling attacks across all divisions in the association, Killy/Bass ceded only 10 extras.
At the end of Round Four, MDU are the giants lording it over the rest.
Korumburra and Poowong Loch are worth an extra hour or two in practise and Foster is still searching for the winning way.
No doubt it will find it soon.
