The Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala C grade ven­tured over to Mi­lawa on Satur­day to take on lad­der lead­ers Mi­lawa.

Cap­tain Ja­son Sharp lost the toss and was sent in to bat.

Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala’s bat­ting got off to a slow start with Rod Wil­lett de­part­ing early.

Rod Peters and Josh Boz­zola went to work res­ur­rect­ing the in­nings.

How­ever a rush of blood to the head saw Boz­zola stumped for 22.

Wick­ets then con­tin­ued to fall at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals as the Mi­lawa at­tack turned the screws on the Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala bats­men.

Af­ter 24 overs Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala were all out for 78.

Once again the af­ter­noon tea at Mi­lawa was ex­cel­lent and Cap­tain Sharp asked for that lit­tle bit ex­tra from the boys in the field and with the ball.

Rod Peters and Sharp opened the bowl­ing with Peters off to a rocky start.

How­ever in his sec­ond over Peters found his groove send­ing the stumps cartwheel­ing out of the ground.

Sharp as usual down the other end bowled im­pec­ca­ble length and was the next to strike with a sharp catch taken by Peters at first slip.

Peters and Sharp both struck again to have Mi­lawa 4 for 20.

Mi­lawa stead­ied and with some crisp clean hit­ting looked to be in the box seat to take the game away from Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala.

At drinks Mi­lawa were 4/52.

Cap­tain Sharp asked for one fi­nal spe­cial ef­fort.

Tom Irvine was given the ball and bowled with great guile and con­trol.

The break­through came when the score was on 63 and it gave re­newed hope to the Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala men.

A bit of quick think­ing by Boz­zola and some ex­cel­lent work be­hind the stumps by Rod Wil­lett had re­duced Mi­lawa to 8 for 66.

A caught be­hind fol­lowed and sud­denly the odds were back in Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala’s favour.

En­ter Ryan Walker who man­aged to out smart the op­po­si­tion bats­man into tak­ing his arm on for sec­ond run.

How­ever an ex­cel­lent throw over the bails and the Mi­lawa bats­man were caught short. All out for 68.

Next Satur­day Yar­ra­wonga-Mul­wala will take on City Colts at Stan Har­g­reaves Oval Yar­ra­wonga from 1:30pm.

Cam Scott lose mid­dle stump try­ing to lift on over the in­field.
