Josh McKinnon put his name up in lights for Katandra in round one of the Clyde Young Shield B-grade season.

The opening batter smashed 13 boundaries on the way to just the second ton of his career with the club, losing his wicket soon after for an even 100.

McKinnon had done enough damage by that stage to get his Eagles over the line, with Rob Trewin (50) and Lachie Ash (42 not out) also chipping in handsomely to help chase down Northerners’ competitive total of 223 with eight wickets and seven overs in hand.

The Jets had struggled to kick into gear earlier in the contest, but Tim Brett (78) and Daniel Campbell (55) then managed to steer their side out of trouble.

Zane Thorne was the pick of the bowlers for Katandra with 3-10, while James Feeney (1-36) and Jeremy Fraser (1-47) took the wickets for Northerners.

●Mooroopna looked to be in trouble against Kyabram after posting just 8-132 following a decision to bat at the toss.

But the Cats engineered a dominant bowling performance to rout the Redbacks for just 55 inside 24 overs to claim a big victory.

Ryan Neil led the way with 3-8, while teammate Taylor Hall top-scored for the match with 34.

●Karramomus chased down Numurkah’s 9-170 with just three wickets in hand on Saturday.

Tyson Woods (36) and Jacob Morris (34) had set up the total for the Blues, but a quick-fire 41 for Paul Trevaskis from just 55 balls faced proved the catalyst for a Bloods triumph.

●A well-crafted 38 from Connor Green was the highlight of Shepparton United’s total of 129, with no teammate breaching the 20-run barrier.

It was not enough to hold off Tatura though, with Heath Fidock hitting an unbeaten 35 to help chase down the target within 25 overs.

●In other results, Central Park-St Brendan’s defeated Old Students by eight wickets, while Undera chased down Euroa’s total of 7-211 in 39.2 overs.
