• A Grade Division 1
A BRILLIANT century by Kilcunda-Bass cap-
tain Andrew Donohue was to no avail, as the
Sharks were bowled out chasing Nerrena’s 275
in A Grade Division 1 at Nerrena.
The Red Caps batted an extra 13 overs this
week to make up for lost overs due to rain
delays last week, and added 65 runs to finish
9/275 before declaring.
Paul Matheson was the key, remaining 63 not
out with eight fours.
Kilcunda-Bass had its backs against the wall
and the skipper stood up.
Donohue batted superbly but aside from Ash
Larcombe (25) he had little support.
He brought up his century and was eventu-
ally run out for 119, after hitting 13 fours and
At 7/197, his departure spelled the end of any
chance the Sharks had of an unlikely victory, as
they were bowled out for 207 in the 62nd over.
Josh Trease was on fire with the ball for the
Red Caps, taking 5/51 off 23.5 overs including
Adam Trotto was also handy with 3/46 off 12
The win has given Nerrena a chance to lift it-
self off the bottom of the ladder and avoid rel-
egation, with the Red Caps now locked on 54
points with Kilcunda-Bass and Phillip Island.
Phillip Island did its chances of remaining in
A1 no harm by defeating OMK in a one dayer
The Diggers batted first and posted 7/160 off
40 overs, led by opener Kris Kerr’s 35 and Tom
Wyatt’s 45 through the middle order.
Geoff Odgers bowled well for the Sharks with
2/34 off eight overs.
The home side batted sensibly, with Eli
Richards (44 not out including five fours) and
Charith Keerthisinghe (15 not out) steering the
Sharks home to 5/185.
Tony Hornsby (34), Jack Keating (27) and Lo -
chie Cleeland (23) also contributed to the win.
A strong bowling effort ensured Wonthaggi
Club overcame Korumburra at Butch West
Defending 179, Club’s bowlers gave nothing
away as the Cobras were bundled out for 119
in the 59th over.
Ryan Thomas bowled superbly with 3/26 off
15 overs, James Sheerin picked up 2/23 off 14
overs including five maidens and Jakeb Thom-
as nabbed 2/14 off seven overs.
Opener Ilan Osman top scored for the Cobras
Inverloch batsmen were disappointing at In-
verloch Turf on Saturday, bowled out for 103 in
reply to Leongatha Town’s 175.
The Stingrays resumed at 1/17 and showed
little resistance, aside from tailender Ben
Thomas who hit 26.
Town shared the wickets around, led by Mad-
ura Weerasinghe with 3/29 off 19 overs includ-
ing seven maidens, and Amila Ratnaike with
3/27 off 13 overs including seven maidens.

Glen Alvie seals finals berth with thrilling win
Sharks falter despite
• A Grade Division 2
GLEN Alvie will feature in finals for the first
time in six years, after some last over heroics
from 14 year-old Rohan Slade.
Forced to declare at the start of play, or face the
likelihood of a draw only, Imperials declared at
8/167, with Glen Alvie allowed 75 overs to make
The visitors’ run chase started disastrously
when Paul Palmer was caught behind for a duck
off the bowling of Jack Ginnane at 1/0, before a
93-run partnership between Steve Smith and Ja-
mie Glen put Glen Alvie on track.
Glen departed when he was struck LBW by
Ginnane for 62 including six fours, and Smith
quickly followed when he was bowled by Mark
Lafferty for a patient 27.
Skipper John Reid kept the score ticking over
and the visitors were looking solid at 5/148.
But a flurry of quick wickets to Ginnane and
Lafferty saw the Imperials edge their way back
into the contest with Glen Alvie reduced to 8/148.
Enter Slade, who belied his young age and bat-
ted with poise alongside Joe Hales.
The pair put on an invaluable 16 runs and
needed five runs off the last over for victory.
In a frantic final over, Slade hit a single off the
first ball then Hales swung and missed.
The next ball saw Hales sky the Lafferty deliv-
ery and Kristian Gray held onto the catch, to leave
the visitors still needing four runs with three balls
and one wicket remaining.
The pair crossed so new batsmen Kelvin Simp-
son strode to the non-striker’s end.
Slade hit the ball and Simpson took off for a
quick single but scurried back into his crease
and was lucky not to be run out.
With two balls remaining the result laid on
Slade’s shoulders and the youngster delivered.
Lafferty’s short ball was pulled over the infield
and hit the square leg boundary with a couple of
bounces to win the match.
There was a little drama with the scorebooks
not adding up, but after clarification from score-
book secretary Brendan Thomas, Glen Alvie was
handed the win and booked a spot in the finals.
Slade remained nine not out and showed he
can handle a pressure situation.
Jack Ginnane finished with 5/29 off 22 overs
including 11 maidens and Lafferty grabbed 4/60
off 24 overs including seven maidens.
Jason Kennedy’s five wickets helped Koonwar-
ra-Leongatha RSL overcome Foster in a tight con-
test at Foster Golf Club.
The Cougars looked in control defending 242
with Foster at 4/50, before Nathan Clarke and
Richard Johnston combined for a 76-run part-
Kennedy had Clark caught for 20 and the Cou-
gar bowlers continued to take regular wickets.
When Johnston was caught off the bowling of
Jayke Hoy for 77 including nine fours, the home
side’s chances diminished.
A last wicket partnership between Harvey
Griggs (11) and Owen Straw (18 not out) was
broken when Kennedy removed Griggs for his
fifth wicket and Foster was all out for 218.
Kennedy finished with 5/67 off 24.5 overs in-
cluding four maidens and Hoy picked up 3/33 off
11 overs including two maidens.
MDU had a solid win over Wonthaggi Miners in
a one-dayer at Wonthaggi Football Ground.
Miners batted first and were bowled out for 152
in the 39th over, led by Josh Andrighetto’s 49 in-
cluding 11 fours.
Michael Olden was the pick of the bowlers with
3/15 off eight overs and Nick Eddy grabbed 2/24
off eight overs.
Gary Webster and Darien Mathews kicked off
the run chase with a 51-run opening stand before
Mathews departed for 19.
Webster was eventually dismissed for 36, be-
fore Nick Eddy got his side across the line with
37 not out including five fours, with five overs
