By Meg Saultry

Yea Tigers and Tallarook continue to dominate Seymour District Cricket Association's A-grade season, with both teams starting the season undefeated.

Tallarook’s Lachlan Watts and Jac Smith-Williams led their team to victory over Seymour on Saturday, with the captain and coach duo starring with the bat.

Smith-Williams hit Seymour's deliveries like a tennis ball, scoring 82 runs off 98 balls, including eight fours and two sixes, while Watts notched his first half-century of the season, finishing with 62.

Seymour's Dan McLarty starred with the ball, recording 4-23, with the Maroons eventually knocking Tallarook over for 172.

But when sent in to bat, Seymour couldn’t face the heat of Tallarook’s own attack, led by Mitch Itter (4-22) and Leigh Irving (3-15), with the home side all out for 68 with less than 13 overs remaining.

● Cam Armstrong led Yea Tigers to a comfortable win over Kilmore on Saturday, starring with both the bat and ball.

Armstrong ripped through Kilmore’s batting order, finishing with 6-17 to limit Kilmore to 8/113 after the allocated 45 overs.

Chasing Kilmore’s run count, the Tigers quickly went about business, chasing down the total with 14 overs remaining.

Again it was Armstrong who put in another fine performance with the pine, hitting 47, and was supported by teammates Damon Malcolm (30 not out) and Darcy Pell (25).

● Round four of A-grade action starts this Saturday, with Eastern Hill hosting Tallarook at Kings Park Reserve, while Kilmore also play back-to-back games at their home ground, Kilmore Cricket Ground, when they face Seymour.

Wrapping up the round, Yea Tigers will have a tough fight ahead of them against Broadford at Yea Recreation Reserve, with both teams coming off wins.
