Boorowa’s senior cricketers pulled off a dominant victory against the Dalton Dingos, headlining a suite of strong results across the grades.
Sent into bat first, Boorowa wasted no time at the crease, hitting 219 runs, with the only hiccup that they were bowled out at the end of the 39th over.
However, in reply, the Dingoes, who like Boorowa have struggled to compete with the fire power of the higher ranked teams, crumbled.
They were dismissed for 115, with only Nathan Apps’ 32 showing any resistance to the onslaught for Dalton.
With two wins on the trot, Boorowa is now in the unlikely position of being able to push for a final birth, sitting on 57 points behind the Yass Bowling Club Pirates (59 points) and the fourth-placed Gundaroo Goats (62 points).
However, they will need everything to go their way, including a win against the top-of-the-table Yass Bowling Club Piranhas (75 points), if they’re going to challenge Gundaroo for the last finals spot.
Despite dismissing the Cootamundra Kookaburra’s for 66, including 5-13 from Benjamin Klose, the Crossbuild Boorowa Rovers were the only team to lose this weekend, falling to 7-58 in their run chase as they were unable to overcome the modest total.
The loss leaves the Under 16s side in last place on 39 points, three points behind the Butt Baling Colts.
However, the Under 13s side, Gayzer’s Gardening Boorowa, had a solid win against Taylor Plumbing and Gasfitting Young to sit in third spot at the conclusion of this week’s matches.
Batting first, Archie Gay top scored with 43 not out as his team put up a score of 1-158, before containing the opposition to a score of 6-138 in Young’s chase.
Harry Dymock bowled well throughout, finishing with figures of 2-13 from his four overs, backing up his recent Sports Person of the Year award.
The Under 11s Ranbuild Sheds side had a bye last week, and will take on Mark Powderly Electrical at Young’s Cullen Oval on Saturday morning.
