The under 11Bs claimed their third victory of the season as they outplayed their opponents The Rail Black at Keith Irvine Mini Oval on Saturday.
The Bulls won the toss and sent the visitors into bat first on very warm and humid morning for cricket. The hosts kept the bowling tight and fielded well in order to restrict their opponents to an all out score of 8/110. Jordan Poole was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4/8 from eight overs while Cooper Anderson 1/12 and Oliver Poole 1/13 played pivotal roles for their team.

The mighty Beagles got themselves back into the winners circle as they hammered Northern Districts Blue in the Under 14Bs competition by seven wickets at Bellambi Point on Saturday.

It took the visitors just 18.3 overs to eclipse their opponents total at 3/60 as Andrew Meijer dominated with a rapid fire score of 30 not out which clinched the Beagles third victory for the season.
A man of the match performance from Shaun Tweed enabled Jamberoo second grade to gain an important six wicket victory over arch rivals Gerringong at Gerry Emery Oval.
The hosts won the toss and chose to bat as they were confronted by a fierce Jamberoo bowling attack. Shaun Tweed produced one the greatest bowling performances in Jamberoo cricketing history as he took impressive figures of 7/21 off eight overs. Jacob Hudson 2/16 and James Ward 1/22 provided solid contributions as the Jets were bowled out for 109.
