Collapse seals WaddiBoos victory

A Wudinna collapse handed Waddikee/Warramboo victory by 81 runs as A grade Le Hunte cricket resumed for 2021 on Saturday.

The visitors posted 9/127 before bowling Wudinna out for only 46 runs, in a match reduced to 20 overs a side.

Openers Lubin Stringer, 11 runs, and Tyler Chapman, 13 runs, could not capitalise on decent starts, leaving a 53-run partnership between Corey Waters and Jake Bruce to push the WaddiBoos forward.

Waters was removed for 17, while Bruce would top-score with 49 before he was one of five late Waddikee/Warramboo wickets to fall for only 11 runs.

Regan Taheny grabbed 3/26 for Wudinna, while Jackson Petty and Troy Klante added two scalps each.

Wudinna's run chase started poorly as Darryl Marshall and Tyson Jackson were dismissed with the score on three.

Taheny was the only batsman to reach double figures as he made 16 runs.

The wicket of Tyler Inglis took the score to 4/39 and triggered the collapse, with the hosts losing their final seven wickets for as many runs.

All eight Waddikee/Warramboo bowlers took wickets, led by Keron Cummings' 2/2 and Logan Elliott's 2/5.

Elsewhere, Kyancutta started the new year with a 33-run triumph over Western Districts, also in a 20-over format.

The home side posted 7/139, with Western Districts falling short on 5/106.

Jordan Stutley took command from the outset as he made 75 runs, including an 83-run opening stand with Hamish May, 18.

Zane Stutley added 21 runs as Kyancutta lost their final five wickets for only four runs.

Josh Horgan grabbed 3/17 from his four overs.

Kysen Shepperd led the scoring for Western Districts with 30, while Horgan added 23 not out.

Earlier, opener Steven Brands and Angus Gunn made 12 runs apiece, but Districts could not reel in the total.

Jake Mullan claimed 2/9 and Jayden Fridd took 2/18.
