Bowling first at Country Club Oval, CYMS ran through a strong Wanderers batting line-up for just 110, with five green and golds bowlers claiming multiple wickets in a complete team performance with the ball.

Todd Murphy (2-14) and Cam Thomas (2-7) managed to pick up the best figures before Josh Dunn hit 44 to guide the green and golds past the modest first innings total for the loss of just three wickets.

The Warriors did it a little tougher at Kinross’s Main Oval but still managed a five-wicket victory to remain unbeaten throughout the opening half of the 2014-15 season.

Opener Jamie Stedman (63) was the rock in City’s pursuit of the students’ 8-167 total, with Ryan Milham (3-30) and David Langston (3-33) doing the majority of the damage with the ball for the Warriors.

The win keeps City on top of the overall second grade ladder, with CYMS the next best side having won four of their six matches this summer.

At present, Wanderers are third with Centrals fourth.

But the gap between Centrals and the two sides currently challenging for the fourth and final place in the semi-finals – Cavaliers and Kinross – was significantly shortened after the maroons hammered the red and blacks at Jack Brabham (1) on Saturday.

Cavaliersran rampant with the ball, at one stage having Centrals 2-0 off the first two balls of the match.

Centrals never recovered, mimicking a train wreck as the side crashed from 3-3 to 5-15 then 8-38 before tail-enders Anthony Salmon (12) and Barney Davis (eight) managed a 28-run ninth-wicket partnership, the latter removed by Terrence Strong (2-3) before he too nabbed number 11 Roshan Eiseman for a golden duck.

Predictably, Centrals’ target of 65 proved little obstacle for Cavaliers openers Will Currall (23) and Marcus Burrell (35), the pair doing the majority of the damage as Cavaliers picked up a seven-wicket victory and moved to within a win of Centrals on the ODCA second grade ladder.

Anthony Salmon capped an all-round performance with 2-20 off six overs.

The 2014-15 ODCA season will resume on Saturday, January 10.
