It was one-way traffic at Vibert Reserve on Saturday as Central Park-St Brendan’s produced a powerful performance against Karramomus.

After winning the toss, the Bloods were skittled for 96 by a rampant Tigers line-up in the Haisman Shield match.

Brendan Scott was harder for Karramomus to get away than a telemarketer, finishing with incredible figures of 3-2 from eight overs with six maidens.

Skipper Ramadan Yze (3-20) was in a wicket-taking mood, while Rhiley Lau and Josh Larkin rounded out the job with two wickets each.

The chase was never going to be much of an issue for the Tigers and they got there in the 21st over, with about 24 overs still available.

Central Park-St Brendan’s coach Andrew Cowen said it was a strong team performance.

‘‘Rumma (Yze) bowled well at the top for his three wickets, particularly to get (Rob) Salter and (Andrew) Poppa,’’ Cowen said.

‘‘We took some good catches and fielded well and we can’t be unhappy with much.

‘‘The only downside was losing five wickets in the chase, but in the context of things we got the runs in 20 overs so we come away pretty happy.’’

Cowen top scored with 26 at almost a run-a-ball, while Lau hit 25 before being bowled.

With results falling their way, the Tigers move up to second on the ladder behind undefeated Katandra.

Karramomus’ third defeat in a row gives the Bloods a 1-3 record, but they are only three points off sixth-placed Mooroopna.
