Yanco Cricket Club has made a strong start to the 35-over B grade competition with a 72-run victory over Narrandera at Narrandera High School on Saturday.
It was a strong start at the top of the order for the Stags with Tye Clancy (22) and Dan Hillam (66) laying the foundation for their side.
Contributions from Logan Mahalm (14), Andrew Kouzan (34) and Anthony Mandaglio (49) helped see the Stags set a competitive total of 7/207 off their 35 overs.
James Smith (3/25) and Shane Bloomfield (2/50) were the pick of the bowlers for the Narrandera side, but they weren't able to restrict the run-scoring from the Stags.
It was a tough start for the Narrandera side as Bloomfield (5) and Jack Sergeant (0) fell to the bowling of Rohan Lacey.
Jake Grant (14) and Jack Rilen (32) tried to get their side back on track, but the bowling of the Stags refused to let the game get away from them.
Lacey (4/19) was the chief destroyer while Hillam (1/5), Charlie Lamont (1/5), Mahalm (1/10) and Jordan Camm (1/15) picked up a wicket each.
Dave Sergeant (15) and Matthew McLellan (42*) offered some late resistance but when the final wicket fell the Carpheads were bowled out for 9/135 to hand the Stags a big win to start the second half of the season.
