Impressive performances on day one of lower grade cricket matches was rewarded as play was abandoned due to heat on Saturday.

C-grade, D-grade and E-grade matches were called off as mercury rose above 40°C — Cricket Shepparton’s limit for lower grades.

Kyabram and Central Park-St Brendan’s still managed victories in the Jim McGregor Shield.

The results helped both sides retain a top six position as Euroa and Dookie continue to push for a finals berth in C-grade.

Central Park-St Brendan’s chased down Euroa’s 134 last Saturday to take first innings honours as Thomas Ryan brought up his first century.

Kyabram was on its way to a sizeable total should play have resumed on Saturday.

Sitting at 2-126, it was well past Karramomus’ 87.

Numurkah and Toolamba would record the only result in SJ Perry D-grade games.

Toolamba’s Greg Watts mustered up everything he had to try and record a victory for his side.

As one of only two players to reach double figures, Watts’ 51 was influential in ensuring his side posted 99.

A Numurkah collapse sparked by Watts’ bowling figures of 3-11 had Toolamba consider the possibility of winning.

Although it was a painstaking run chase, with Numurkah reaching the target before captain Steve Morris lost his wicket.

Mooroopna also took six points against Northerners after winning on forfeit.

The Cats’ E-grade side also claimed victory in a tough encounter against Toolamba.

Playing at Toolamba, Mooroopna produced a strong bowling display to restrict the home side to 74.

Kieran Robertson stole the show with a hat-trick as Rod Neil took 5-21.

Neil was also impressive with the bat as his 41 steered Mooroopna to a first innings win.
