Divi­sion 3

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - SPORT - By Sam Laffy

Iona (2-182) def. Yar­ragon (140): Iona’s im­pres­sive run of form con­tin­ued in their round five clash against Yar­ragon, with the Swamp Tigers re­main­ing un­beaten on the top of the ta­ble fol­low­ing their easy eight-wicket win over the Pan­thers.

In pur­suit of 140, Iona’s chase be­gan con­fi­dently as Michael Neil­son (19) and An­drew Parker (who even­tu­ally fin­ished with 53*) added 46 for the first wicket to put their op­po­nents on the backfoot.

John Buck­land (0-36 off 13) and Oliver Watt (0-20 from eight) did their best to re­strict the scor­ing of the Swamp Tigers bats­men, but Luke Fer­gu­son (59) and Mick Tay­lor (35*) were up to the task and they quickly car­ried their side to vic­tory.

At 2-182, Iona de­cided that they had put their noses far enough in front to end the game af­ter 41 overs, and they re­main one game clear of sec­ond place on the divi­sion three ta­ble.

Crows score first win

Long­warry (131) def. Buln Buln (108): Long­warry claimed their first win of the sea­son with an up­set 23-run vic­tory over Buln Buln, with the Crows bowlers sim­ply too good for their op­po­nents.

Hav­ing posted just 131 af­ter bat­ting first last week­end, it seemed as though Long­warry would have their work cut out for them against a Lyre­birds out­fit full of con­fi­dence.
