Yanco and L&D pick up wins in LDCA B Grade

Yanco is the first team in the LDCA B Grade grand final after putting on a staggering performance against Narrandera at Narrandera High School.

After winning the toss and batting first, Yanco was able to make a solid start through Brian Rotherham and Matt Aliendi.

However, the bowling of Brodie Perram (2/26) brought the opening partnership of 37 to an end as he picked up Aliendi (29) and Rotherham (9) while Sam Argus (1/17) dismissed Brad Evans (2) to see the Stags fall to 3/43.

It would be the last taste of success for Narrandera as Angus Boulton, and Stuart Browne put their foot on the accelerator and elevated the scoring rate for the Stags.

The pair were able to put on 136 runs for the fifth wicket before Browne (37) was dismissed by Wyatt Gilbert (1/28).

Boulton (109*) kept his score ticking along before the Stags reached the end of the 35 overs with a massive total 4/201.

Narrandera’s top order of Ash Cabban (58), Jono Schofield (39) and Argus (40) gave their side a fighting chance as they reached 4/138 with seven overs left in the game.

Boulton (4/15) and Aliendi (3/18) did the damage with the ball and helped restrict Narrandera to 170 off 34.4 overs to give the Stags 31-run win and the first place in the decider.

Narrandera will take on L&DCC Blue after they were able to pick up a convincing win over LSC Colts at Leeton High No 1.

The Colts batted first, and with Rob Keech and Glenn Vitnell at the crease, the Colts were able to put on 24 for the first wicket.

When Paul Rook (5/4) received the ball, he made the most of it as he picked up Rob Keech (13), Billy Conroy (0), Ronnie Broadrick (0), Sam Killen (0) and Micheal Keech (2) to see the Colts fall to 5/35.

Reece Keech (13*) tried to give his side a chance before Kane Fogg (1/17) dismissed Evan Killen (1) saw the Colts bowled out of 60.

Peter Lashbrook (0) fell in the first over to the bowling of Michael Keech (3/7) before Matthew Robertson (18), Jamie O’Connell (22) and Rook (12*) guided the Ferrets to a six-wicket victory.

Narrandera and L&D will meet at Leeton High No 1 next Saturday for a place in the grand final.
