Mooroopna took control of its Jim McGregor Shield C-grade clash with Tatura with a strong batting display before skittling the opposition for just 75.

Robert Marsters led the way with the bat for the Cats, compiling a well-made 61, but all eight players who strode to the crease were able to pass double figures in a great team performance.

Young Bailey Archer turned into a destroyer late in the innings, taking 3-21 from five overs, but no teammate was able to snare multiple wickets.

Co-captains Simon Russell (20) and Dan Miller (18) provided some resistance during the chase, but the Cats were simply too strong with the ball, including a remarkable 3-5 from 10 deliveries for Thomas Lawler, who had not played cricket for a number of years.

●Old Students had a day to forget on Saturday, getting rolled for 36 in just 13 overs against Murchison.

Murchison used just two bowlers to secure the rout, with Dylan Rowney (4-10) and David Marsters (3-21) putting in a great performance.

It was a similar story with the bat for Murchison, with Brandan Reilly (19 not out) and Richard Marsters (15 not out) chasing down the total in 15 overs without trouble.

●David Irwin hit a strong knock of 70 not out to help Dookie to a big win against Euroa.

Irwin was the mainstay of Dookie’s innings of 6-209 and Euroa was unable to get near it in the chase.

Jake Penman top scored with 20, but his teammates showed little resistance and were rolled for 111, thanks largely to Dookie pair Travis Guppy (3-14) and Troy Scott (3-23).

●Gurwinder Singh (72) and Robert Chaston (57 not out) helped Karramomus to a seven-wicket victory against Central Park-St Brendan’s, while Pine Lodge had the bye.
