Blake Campbell (pictured) and Adam Nunn formed a solid partnership, putting on 29 and 32 respectively before crumbling together.

Just two games were completed in Goulburn Murray Cricket after late rain caused the other matches to end in a draw.

Tongala was able to post 7-141 from its 45 overs, with the Blues’ middle order hanging tough.

Blake Campbell and Adam Nunn formed a solid partnership, putting on 29 and 32 respectively before crumbling together.

Campbell and Nunn were dismissed within a run of each other as Moama’s Jordan McGregor got on a roll.

McGregor then looked solid with the bat, unbeaten on 12 having faced just seven overs before the rain came.

But with Moama 0-35 before play was called off, the Blues will be thankful the weather gods smiled upon them.

Echuca was well-placed for an important victory, holding Stanhope at 2-10 after posting 6-250.

A half-century from Echuca opener Adam Jones was aided by solid scores to Matthew Hinks and Brendan Prendergast.

Although Hinks knocked over Stanhope’s bowlers early, points were split between the sides.

Rochester United was well on top against Bamawm-Lockington United, just needing a few more overs to finish the job.

With 203 the number needed for BLU to secure victory, Dylan Cuttriss put on a clinic to take four wickets in just 18 overs.

But the game was called off with five wickets still in hand for Bamawm-Lockington.

Kyabram Fire Brigade had its match against Echuca South won before the rain came down.

Paul Newman (70 not out) and Henry Charlton (45 not out) needed just 14 overs to surpass the 122 that South laboured to get to in the first innings.

Rochester Tigers lived out a nightmare, able to post just 66 runs against Cooma.

Drew Barrett was responsible for carrying out most of the damage, finishing with figures of 5-9 as Cooma needed only 22 overs before closing out the match.
