Tongala defeated Echuca South as it tries to hold onto dreams of a top-four finish.

Tongala defeated Echuca South as it tries to hold onto dreams of a top-four finish.

Having notched up their third win of the Goulburn Murray Cricket season, the Blues are six points off the pace of the leading teams in the competition.

Hosting South, a total of 204 was too difficult for the visitors to contend with.

Adam Nunn made the most of the attack before he was run out for 87.

But captain Jayden Tucker picked up where Nunn left off with 44 as Jordan Souter, Joel Regan and Darin Ohlsen also reached double figures.

Rotating through six bowlers, Echuca South’s Dylon Haimes kept a tight line as he finished with 1-18 from nine overs.

In reply, South managed just 8-107.

Rochester United took the spoils against Rochester Tigers to maintain its unbeaten run.

Everything went right for United at Windridge Oval as Tim Bubb won the toss and elected to bat.

With Bubb the only batsman not to reach double figures, an unbeaten 63 to each of Sean Williams and Tim Rasmussen had the two reliable performers leading the charge to a score of 3-195.

Star Tigers bowler Adam Ward was unlucky not to end with a wicket after bowling four maidens in his spell as Jake Wright finished with 1-33 off nine overs.

The Tigers put up a fight in reply to post 6-137 as Williams finished with a best-on-ground performance in claiming three wickets.

Kyabram Fire Brigade ran all over Stanhope as the Flames regained a spot on the winners’ list.

After going down to Cooma last week, Fire Brigade kept Stanhope to just 109.

Sam Kershaw streamed to an unbeaten 36 runs off 40 balls as the Brigade cruised to 3-111.

Top side Moama needed just 14 overs to chase down Echuca’s 82.

In the final match of the round, Cooma travelled to Bamawm-Lockington United, with the away side keeping BLU’s batsmen in check to record the victory.
