Barooga overcame Finley in a nailbiter at the Barooga Recreation Reserve on Friday.

In the Murray Valley Cricket Association premier division match, Finley belted 120 from its 20 overs.

Barooga’s Riley Gow was on song with the ball, claiming 3-19 from four overs. He was supported by Justin Maley, Kale Watkins and Will Lavery, who all collected wickets.

It came down to the wire in the second innings with Barooga surpassing Finley’s total with just 1.2 overs remaining and two wickets in hand.

Strong batting from Shane Healey, Jamie Stanyer and Daniel Ellis helped the host over the line with 32, 29 and 28 respectively.

Katamatite v Deniliquin

Katamatite was comprehensively beaten by Deniliquin at Katamatite Recreation Reserve at the weekend.

The host only managed 80 runs from its 20 overs and lost nine wickets in response to an impressive 157 from Deniliquin.

The highest scoring batsman for Katamatite was tail-ender Tom Pendlebury with 27, supported by Kelvin Kennedy with 19 and Shannon Pool with 14.

Katamatite was torn apart by a fierce Rhinos bowling attack. Andrew Hogan took 4-12 from four overs and Dylan Rotherham claimed 3-14 from his four overs.

Nathalia v Cobram

Nathalia brushed aside Cobram at the Cobram Showgrounds on Saturday.

The visiting side only lost three wickets on its way to chasing down Cobram’s 112 first innings total.

A strong start from the host saw Ashley Saunders score a half-century and Tyron Baden add 26 runs of his own. But little support from teammates meant Cobram was bowled out for 112 from 15.5 overs.

The same pair picked up where it left off with the bat, with Baden claiming 2-20 from four overs and Saunders picking up a wicket of his own.

But strong batting from Nathalia’s top order meant the visitors cruised home for an easy victory.
