Scarborough finished the day on 131-6, Mulderís figures 0-9 from his 3 overs. He will hope to do will enough next weekend to get back into the 1st Grade.
Ross Allenís Centrals side continued their 2-day game against Traralgon West this weekend.

Graham Kennedy had a decent all-round performance on Saturday for Hannanís but it was in vain. Top-scoring with 24 of Hannanís 80 runs, they were always up against it, and while he took 1-14 in his 3 overs - the best return by a Hannanís bowler, North Kalgoorlie reached their target for an 8 wicket victory in the 18th over.
Katamatite began a two-day match against Nathalia this weekend. Sam Gordon (27) and Jamie Magowan (13) contributed to a total of 178ao in their 80n overs. Play resumes next week.

Young Rushian Diarmuid Burke has returned to action with Scarborough u15s, after a painful leg injury kept him out of the side for a few weeks. In the first innings of their 2-day game against South Perth, the young left-arm bowler had the rare chance to bat a bit at this level (Scarboroughís u15s often donít get a bat after 4-5, such is the quality of their opening bats, so most of his batting is in community cricket). Diarmuid made 3 runs before being run out, as they finished on 144. He will hope to get a good few overs in next weekend.
And finally from New Zealand. Jonathan Waite and James Metcalfe helped The Cadets go top of the Bay of Plenty Premiership with a victory over Rotorua. In a game reduced to 30 overs per side due to rain, The cadets made 150, with James making 18 and Jonathan 16. Rotorua were bowled out for 110, leaving The Cadets winners by 40 runs.
