Moama is not going to fall down easily in its final round contest against Kyabram Fire Brigade.

Moama is not going to fall down easily in its final round contest against Kyabram Fire Brigade.

With the Flames entering the match off the back of a scintillating defeat of Rochester United, Moama had a tough ask ahead.

But with the motivation of needing a win to secure its spot in the Goulburn Murray Cricket finals race, Brayden McGregor produced his best game of the season.

McGregor raised the bat for an astounding century as Moama moved on its way to 249 runs.

Moama did not always look like reaching the sizeable total, as Kyabram’s Brodie Unwin knocked over both openers to have Moama sitting at 2-12.

But Layton McCann again showed his stability at first drop to make 61 runs off 83 balls.

The Flames bowlers stayed on track throughout, continually breaking partnerships.

Unwin finished with figures of 3-42, while Mick Mattingly again performed strongly with the ball to also claim three scalps.

If Kyabram is unable to chase 249, it risks letting slip a home final by falling to third position.

Tongala continues to be in the hunt for a finals berth, posting 9-287 against Rochester Tigers.

The Tigers won the toss and sent their opposition in to bat with Darin Ohlsen making the most of the opportunity as he worked his way to 88 off 172 balls.

Adam Nunn chimed in with another controlled innings of 57, patiently seeing out 141 balls.

Fraser Cleary was Rochester Tigers’ most influential bowler, claiming a five-wicket haul off 16 overs.

Cooma is set to play finals after an impressive first innings scoring 6-383 on the back of two centuries.

Michael Hill brought up his 100 before retiring hurt, while Stephen Barrett smashed his way to 140 off 163 balls.

Along with a handy 46 from Liam Barrett, Stanhope will find it difficult to match Cooma’s score.

Echuca South was able to occupy the crease, but could not make runs against Rochester United, with the top side rebounding from its loss to the Flames last week.

United was alert in the field as Angus Martin was responsible for the run outs of Hugh Nelson and Chris Uys with South dismissed for 67 from 54.1 overs.

Echuca also tore through its opposition, dismissing Bamawm-Lockington United for 63 runs with Matthew Hinks superb as he finished with figures of 5-19.
