AN IM­PRES­SIVE in­nings with the bat from Ashan Ranaweera and a five-wicket haul by An­thony Brew­ergray has se­cured Mount Beauty’s sec­ond win of the sea­son play­ing away against Corowa.

The Power bat­ted first, los­ing their two open­ers Brew­ergray and cap­tain Daniel Sav­ille cheaply, be­fore Damien Jen­vey (28) and Ashan Ranaweera (48) got to work.

Com­ing in at num­ber five, Kevin Moor­man also notched up a handy 37 while Jake Styles chimed in with 11.

The Power were even­tu­ally bowled out in the 45th over for 168.

In re­ply Corowa made a solid start, work­ing their way to 62 with­out loss be­fore Brew­ergray struck.

The Power sparked a col­lapse tak­ing 4/5, with Brew- ergray strik­ing three times in his first two overs and Ranaweera toil­ing away from the other end.

Brew­ergray bowled his nine overs in one spell, help­ing to put Corowa away neatly with 5/23.

Ranaweera (3/19) and Jake Styles (1/21) also bowled well as the reign­ing premiers were re­stricted to just 132.

It was a fam­ily af­fair for Mount Beauty, with Adam Styles join­ing his brother Jake in the team, Ethan Grace play­ing along­side his brother Ai­den, and un­der-16s player Ge­or­gia Moor­man tak­ing to the field for her maiden first­grade match with her fa­ther Kevin.

Mt Beauty cap­tain Daniel Sav­ille de­scribed Brew­ergray’s bowl­ing as game chang­ing.

“It was a lot of fun, and to get the win was very sat­isfy- ing as well,” he said.

“The field­ing set us up for the win, there were a lot of nice saves, and ev­ery­one contributed on the day which made it a lot eas­ier to win.”

In other matches, Ded­erang suf­fered their first loss of the sea­son, go­ing down to an im­pres­sive Kiewa out­fit by two wick­ets.

Play­ing at home, the Demons bat­ted first, and put up a com­pet­i­tive to­tal of 158 with sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions from Luke Deans (72) and An­drew Creamer (22).

In re­ply, the Kiewa in­nings started slowly with Ded­erang on top at 3/34 but the tra­di­tional pow­er­houses stead­ied the ship to pass the to­tal in the 43rd over.

The win ce­ments Kiewa’s place on top of the lad­der, with an un­beaten streak of four wins, while Ded­erang drops down to sec­ond.
