Bayden Bailey belted United’s bowlers to all parts of Undera Recreation Reserve.

Undera was in an ominous mood with the bat in the Clyde Young Shield game against Shepparton United on Saturday.

Bayden Bailey (129) and Paul Wickham (101) belted United’s bowlers to all parts of Undera Recreation Reserve with huge centuries as the Lions made 9-363.

John Valentin also hit a quick-fire 73, while Josh Wilson toiled hard for United with 5-46 as did Brett Warburton (3-42).

Steven Tate (71) and Lee Menhenett (40) were United’s best batsmen en route to a score of 6-194 in reply.

●Centuries to Brent Mathers and Brocq Robertson were the highlights in the game between Old Students and Karramomus.

Lightfoot medallist Mathers carved up 122 as the Students batted first, with Harwinder Singh (48) and Tim MacLaughlin (46) also leading the way to 3-263.

But Robertson and the Bloods had other ideas, as he smashed 127 off 88 balls opening the batting to push Karramomus to victory by six wickets.

Robertson had great support from Ashley Taylor (47) in a 123-run opening stand and Tim Belford (30).

●Mooroopna held off a stern challenge from Katandra, winning by 16 runs.

Hayden Smith was terrific with 75 as the Cats made 6-178 batting first, with Ross Hopkins chiming in with two wickets for the Eagles.

Joel May (32) and Clint Thomas (25 not out) did well to push Mooroopna along.

May was at it again with the ball, taking three wickets, while Karl Rosevear (49) and Andrew Nicholls (26) battled hard with the bat on Katandra’s way to 9-162.

●Tatura defeated reigning premier Central Park-St Brendan’s by 35 runs, with Tom Vibert smashing 80 for the winners.

Tatura was sent in to bat and registered 6-196 from 45 overs as Hamish Roberts hit 44 at No.5, with teenager Aidan Lloyd taking two wickets opening the bowling for the Tigers.

Lloyd did his chance of a recall to A-grade no harm at all, hitting 44 in the Tigers’ score of 161 as Terry Olney led Tatura from the front with three wickets.

It was an all-round contribution for the Blues in reply, with Bradley Naughton (67) and Tyson Woods (57) getting them near the target.

●Euroa’s Marcus Hill was left on 98 not out as the Magpies recorded a score of 7-226 batting first.
