Lake Grace Cricket Club made their presence felt in their inaugural game in the Upper Great Southern Cricket Association on Sunday. After the Lakes Cricket Association folded, Lake Grace decided to move to the UGSCA and won their round-one clash over Dumbleyung by five wickets. An unbeaten half-century from captain Kane Pinney guided Lake Grace to a comfortable first win in one of the strongest associations in regional WA. Chasing 165 for victory, Lake Grace reached the total with seven overs to spare. The win was set up up by a 104-run partnership between Pinney and Damon Pelham. Lake Grace lost back-to-back wickets to fall to 2-26, but Pinney and Pelham were able to build a strong platform and ease their side to victory. Pelham fell for a well-made 40 off 71 balls and despite the loss of Mitch Smith and Aidan Liddelow, Pinney went on to help his side finish on 5-165 off 38 overs. Kalan Joyce tried his best for Dumbleyung, finishing with 3-37 off nine overs. Dumbleyung put together a couple of small partnerships through their innings but were not able to go on with it as they made 7-164 off 45 overs. Byron Blevin made 41 opening the batting while Joyce (29) and Brett Treloar (28) also chipped in. Pinney was the only multiple wicket taker for Lake Grace with 2-22. Meanwhile, Williams knocked off reigning premiers Pingelly-Noonebin in round one by seven wickets. Pingelly-Noonebin were bowled out for just 86 in the 41st over, with Tom Blechynden top scoring with 43 off 98 balls. Brock Titko took 4-31 while Rodney Ford claimed 3-10. Williams surpassed the total for the loss of three wickets, with James Leunig top scoring with 19 as his side finished on 3-89 off 29.5 overs. An imposing total of 7-212 from Cuballing proved too much for Towns in their round-one clash. Tom Forrest (63), Blair Forrest (51) and Grady Francis (57) set up the run chase while Liam Sweeney claimed three wickets for Towns. Towns opener Perrin Quartermaine made 47 and Sweeney added 28 as they finished on 125. Caleb Dewing took a remarkable 3-6 off five overs for Cuballing.
