Cricket finals battle

THIRD and fourth positions in the Northern District Cricket Association ladder are up for grabs, with Cohuna and Barham-Koondrook both losing to the higher placed A Grade teams on Saturday.

Cohuna won the toss against Leitchville-Gunbower and thought they would be able to chase better than batting first.

So Leitchville-Gunbower batted and set a target of 161, with Blake Gelletly, Jack McEwen, Jack Lunghusen and Liam Keath all making about 30.

Matt Robinson and Sam Jones took two and three wickets respectively, with Oscar Cooke sending down seven over for only 16 runs and taking two wickets.

Cohuna would have walked off after fielding with thoughts in their head of a successful run-chase. "Only 161, we can get that!"

But it was only Riley Hird (19), Ian Mathers (14) and Oscar Cooke (21) who hung around for any length of time.

Leitchville-Gunbower's Jed Brereton took four for 16 off eight overs, with Sam Colvin taking two and Jack Elliott grabbing three. 

It was the Leitchville-Gunbower pressure that did the job.

At the Nondies v Barham-Koondrook match, Nondies took to the crease first and reached a competitive total of 200 with Sam O'Shea (63) and Jack Donat (33) the main contributors. 

The rest of the line-up made scores in the mid teens but nothing else to write home about.

Garry Lolicato and Jayden Hall opened the bowling for BK and both took two wickets, but Danny Lolicato closed off the innings by taking three. 

Maybe Danny should have been bowling a bit earlier?

Barham-Koondrook's turn at the crease saw only two of their top five batsmen get runs, with the other three making blobs. 

Garry and Danny Lolicato made 36 and 24 respectively, with the rest only reaching low teens at best. 

All out for 125 obviously wasn't good enough and the BK blokes should expect better from themselves. 

Lenny Pascoe snared four wickets with support from Will Thrum, who took three. 

This is a pretty strong bowling attack and one that just keeps the pressure on. 

Good openers with strong first and second change options.

A good win for Nondies and does this result mean that the spot in the four is flying away, Barham-Koondrook?
