Inverloch ladder leaders

NERRENA lost its third wicket, Josh Trease, without the addition of a run but Damien Symmons came to the crease and set about adding 48 runs to get the targeted 179 needed on track.
Unfortunately, none of his team mates were able to follow suit and Nerrena fell 24 runs short, all out for 154 in the 64th over and swapped places with Inverloch at the top of the ladder.
For Inverloch Kit Rotthier was very effective with the ball and took four wickets for 42 in a spell which included six maiden overs.
Lewis Rankin was also good with 2/13 off nine overs.
In the next round Inverloch take on Town which has won its last three matches and Nerrena take on OMK which won its round two encounter so the top two positions look set to see saw.
OMK was chasing Workmens 278 and fell well short with no one able to match Workmens’ Jay Baker’s opening 82 runs which was close to the difference between the two sides.
Jesse Van Rooye with 57 runs was OMK’s best and last to the crease, Jason Wilson wagged the tail with 36 but OMK was all out for 176.
R Thomas was involved in four wickets including a run out and Jakeb Thomas took two.
Phillip Island was chasing Town’s 231 runs and coming in at number three, Eli Richards made himself at home at the crease with 69 runs.
None of his team mates were able to stay in the middle with him, a partnership was needed, and the gap looked increasingly unlikely to be bridged.
Richards was caught out late in the innings.
Amila Ratnaike 4/46 (20 overs) and Ashley Hickey 4/36 (17.2) kept Town on top.
Madura Weerasinghe Silva bowled 35 overs on a very warm day and took 2/91 in a spell which included 11 maidens.
Town firms up at third on the table with one more win than Workmens and has a showdown with the leader Inverloch in round seven.
Imperials have points on the table at last with its defeat of Miners.
Miners was well beaten.
The middle order gave the side hope with Cameron Thomas not out 54 playing the role of anchor but no one could go with him and the Imperials had the Miners all out in the 63rd for 198.
Zac Price 3/45, Luke Rogers 2/31 and Lachlan Wright 2/30 were the bowlers who ensured the win.
Imperials play Workmens away in round seven and will looking to follow up this confidence boosting win with another victory.
