Glenn Campbell ensured Undera reached its required target without losing a wicket.

A sensational century from Linton Colclough was the catalyst for Euroa’s Clyde Young Shield win against Mooroopna on Saturday.

Teenage opener Colclough belted 151 on the first day, ensuring the Magpies reached a competitive total of 264 as they were bowled out in the 63rd over.

The innings proved to be important, with Aiden Smithers (36) hitting Euroa’s next top score as seven batsmen failed to reach double figures.

Euroa’s score proved to be more than enough, with the Cats rolled for 115 in the 44th over as Brad Gleeson picked up three wickets.

Robert Marsters (31) led the way for Mooroopna before it batted for a second time, with the Cats managing 4-64 from 33 overs.

Meanwhile, Undera recorded a bizarre outright win against Tatura after the teams were tied when the first innings was completed.

Both sides made 63 each in their first innings last week, setting the scene up for a fascinating second day.

But it was all one-way traffic as Tatura was swept aside for 34 in its second innings and no batsmen reaching double figures, with Brenton Campbell taking 4-2.

Glenn Campbell (28 not out) ensured Undera reached its required target without losing a wicket.

Central Park-St Brendan’s pulled off a comprehensive outright victory over Kyabram, bowling the Redbacks out twice on Saturday.

Jordan McGregor (3-21) was the pick of the Tigers bowlers in the first innings as Kyabram was all out for 75 in the 35th over.

Nathan Berry (4-21) did the job in the second innings, with Kyabram skittled for 81 in the 30th over.

Karramomus also did an outright job, securing an eight-wicket win against Northerners.

The Bloods already had first innings points in the bag after day one, but could only manage 132 in reply to Northerners’ 107.

The Jets struggled again in their second dig, lasting 37 overs before being bowled out for 87, with Wil Norman (3-8) economical with the ball.

Karramomus got on with the job to gain maximum points, with Ashley Taylor (23) and Jack Norman (21) in the middle when the winning runs were hit.

The outright theme continued at John Riordan Oval, with Shepparton United smashing Numurkah in a commanding display.

The Blues could only manage 55 in pursuit of United’s 191 as youngster Ethan McLaren claimed 4-2 from seven overs, including five maidens.

Numurkah was able to show more resistance in its second innings with 78, but still lost outright as Steven Tate dominated with 4-14 from 12 overs.

Old Students made the most of their situation after day one to defeat Katandra by six wickets.

The Students resumed at 3-58 in reply to the Eagles’ 119 and were able to go on with the job.

Harwinder Singh (46) and Rocky Gagliardi (41) led the way as the Students were all out for 170 in the 62nd over, while Ryleigh Shannon (5-69) was a standout for the Eagles.

Katandra reached 5-78 in its second innings.
