Af­ter his bats­man set the team up with 314 on the open­ing day be­fore Satur­day, Moama looked to be in a good position to force a re­sult out of BLU.

And it did ex­actly that, com­ing close to forc­ing a sec­ond in­nings vic­tory by tak­ing 18 wick­ets in one day of play on Satur­day, with El­liott the chief de­stroyer with eight for him­self.

It started when BLU was 1/4, El­liott dis­miss­ing Joseph Hamil­ton for a duck.

James McPhee, Luke Deep­rose and Shan­non Bish would find them­selves mem­bers of El­liott’s wicket haul, all with­out trou­bling the scor­ers.

But it wasn’t just the new men to the crease that El­liott re­moved.

Nathan Neville was the top scorer for his BLU side, scor­ing freely to get to 54 be­fore El­liott dis­missed him as well.

Ja­son Turner was the fi­nal line of re­sis­tance for BLU, scor­ing 42.

He was the fi­nal man dis­missed, as El­liott com­pleted the job with stun­ning fig­ures of 6/29.

BLU was skit­tled for just 107, and barely had time to as­sess the dam­age be­fore they faced down El­liott and a new ball.

With the op­por­tu­nity to set up his team for a much needed sec­ond in­nings vic­tory, El­liott struck with the Overs 25.1 FOW: 54 (M De Villers) 64 (J El­liott) 79 (D Shaw) 96 (B Lan­g­ley) 103 (R Thom­son) Bowl­ing A Nunn 7.0-1-1-35, L Hughes 3.0-1-0-21, D Ohlsen 9.0-1-3-34, E Gil­lie 2.0-0-0-11, D Coombs 4.0-0-1-25, C Thomp­son 0.1-0-0-4.

He also dis­missed Cairns’ open­ing part­ner Neville for the sec­ond time that day not long af­ter.

Only two play­ers in BLU’s sec­ond in­nings passed dou­ble fig­ures, McPhee mak­ing 27 and Deep­rose un­beaten on 29 at the close of play.

Fin­ish­ing the day at 8/82, BLU avoided the sec­ond in­nings loss, but was highly dis­ap­pointed with its over­all per­for­mance.

With four play­ers scor­ing dou­ble fig­ures across the two in­nings, a stag­ger­ing nine bats­men were dis­missed on the day with­out trou­bling the scor­ers.

D-GRADE Rush­worth lt Moama Rush­worth lost on for­feit. Tongala lt Kyabram Fire Brigade Tongala 93 (B Cald­well 36 S Flem­ing 3-17 N Mack­i­son 3-29 B Carver 2-14) lt Kyabram Fire Brigade 6-164cc (T Dunne 53no A Stock­dale 51no S Tucker 2-26).

Cooma lt BLU Cooma 106 (J Pearse 3-20 S Hib­ber­son 2-10 J Felm­ing­ham 2-30) lt BLU 135 (E Bish 47 C Pearse 38 N An­gelino 4-23 S Burt 3-21). 24.3 overs in one of the best bowl­ing per­for­mances of the season. ■ In other re­sults of the day, Kyabram Fire Brigade moved within strik­ing dis­tance of top spot in a one-day match with top-placed Tongala.

Daniel Kent made an un­beaten 37 as the Flames chased down Tonny’s 127 in just 25.1 overs. ■ There may be some teething prob­lems with the new Tongala side, but lo­cal vet­eran Dy­lan Cut­triss is show­ing no signs of need­ing to ad­just.

Cut­triss fin­ished with five wick­ets to go with his 33 with the bat, mov­ing to 14 wick­ets for the season.

Rochester over­came a poor per­for­mance with the bat the pre­vi­ous week to beat Cooma by 19 runs.
