WaddiBoos and Districts pick up victories

Waddikee/Warramboo dramatically defeated Kyancutta by just one run in A grade Le Hunte cricket on Saturday.

The WaddiBoos posted 8/207 and then bowled out the visitors for 206 in this top of the table encounter.

The victory continued Waddikee/Warramboo’s near-perfect season to date, with five wins and one loss putting it 12 points clear at the top of the table.

It was a much easier outing for Western Districts, who defeated Wudinna by eight wickets.

Stephen Mudge led the way with three wickets as Wudinna was bowled out for just 98, which Districts comfortably chased down to finish on 2/100.

Steve Westlake was the first man out when he was caught off the bowling of Josh Horgan for only five runs.

Viv O’Brien and Ryan Lymn then added 24 for the second wicket – which proved the best Wudinna partnership – before O’Brien was caught for 19.

Tyson Jackson made 13 before he was dismissed and then Lymn was also sent packing to have Wudinna at 4/48.

Darryl Marshall for 10 and Ree Martin, four runs, went in quick succession, although Mark Blayney grabbed 11 runs and Paul Elliott 10 to offer some resistance.

Wudinna then lost the last four wickets for 13 runs to give Districts clear sight of victory.

Mudge finished with 3/15 from seven overs, while Mackenzie Best and Kysen Shepperd picked up two wickets apiece.

Julian Gosling and Trent Brace put on 20 runs in response for Western Districts before Gosling was caught for 11.

Brace’s dismissal for 16 to make the score 2/39 brought Angus Gunn and Shard Gosling together, with Gunn finishing on 34 not out and Gosling adding 21 runs to see Districts take the points.

O’Brien and Blayney took the Wudinna wickets.​

The result sees Western Districts draw level with Kyancutta in second position on the table with 18 points.
