A-grade

Tallarook v Broadford

The home team was bowled out for 152, just short of their 45 overs.

Leigh Irving (68) and Xavier Youngman (37) helped the team reach the score, with other players struggling to reach double figures.

Broadford’s Nathan Woods took 3-32 from his eight overs, but those eight overs proved costly, with nine no-balls and four wides.

An unbeaten century from Ash Wood off only 97 balls put the visitors in a strong position, and with some help from Jeremy Bradshaw (29), the visitors marched to a six-wicket victory with 10 overs remaining.

With this win, Broadford remains on top of the ladder, half a win ahead of Yea Tigers.

Nagambie v Kilmore

Kilmore reached 7-161 at the end of its 45 overs against Nagambie after a sensational 85 from Dale Tassone.

Tassone continued his great performance in the field, taking a catch and running out Will Ulrich for a duck.

Nagambie’s bowling did not go astray though, with a tight nine overs, four maidens and 1-25 from Harley Taylor-Lloyd.

But that made no difference to the batting display from Nagambie, who was bowled out for 57 in 32 overs.

The bowling was dominated by Josh Buttler, whose bowling figures ended with nine overs, four maidens and 6-17 in a brutal performance, while Rod McLeod finished with 2-15 off his nine overs.

Kilmore, fourth on the ladder, next plays Yea, while Nagambie plays top side Broadford.

Meanwhile, Yea Tigers and Avenel shared the points after their clash was abandoned.
