Reigning premiers Pingelly-Noonebin handed Lake Grace their first defeat of the Upper Great Southern Cricket Association this season, finishing comfortable eight-wicket winners in Pingelly on Saturday. Pingelly-Noonebin were boosted by the inclusion of star batter Tom Blechynden, who helped guide them to their second win of the season in round four. A terrific bowling performance was capped with disciplined batting to end Lake Grace’s winning streak. Lake Grace could manage only 9-116 from 45 overs batting first. Matt Trevenen and Kalan Joyce put together a 36-run opening partnership before the latter was dismissed for 17. Trevenen and Dylan Brooks added 27 together but that would be the last positive note of the innings, with Lake Grace losing 7-24 in a terrible batting collapse. Dylan Kirk produced a superb spell of bowling as he removed Trevenen for 37 and Brooks soon after for 17. Aidan Liddelow, Shaye Bowron and Karl Fleay all were dismissed without scoring, and when Craig Shaw and Rob Enright were removed, Lake Grace were nine wickets down and still short of triple figures. Corey Gault made a valuable 20 not out to finish the innings but the damage was done. Kirk finished with the impressive figures of 3-5 off six overs while Brett Blechynden was just as important with 2-5 off four. Pingelly-Noonebin passed the total with ease under the guidance of Tom Blechynden and Kirk. Luke Brown started strongly but was run out for 10 before Jack and Tom Blechynden added 27 together. Pingelly-Noonebin were 2-44 after Jack Blechynden was removed, but the result never seemed in doubt with Dylan Kirk joining Tom Blechynden at the crease. That pair put on a superb 76-run stand with Blechynden posting a half-century in his return, finishing unbeaten on 61 from 56 balls. Kirk was unbeaten on 36. Meanwhile, Harrismith notched their first victory since rejoining the A-grade competition, prevailing by seven wickets over Towns at Clayton Road Oval. Towns posted 9-150 batting first with Tom Munns finishing unbeaten on 29 while Jordan Draper-Gibbs added 28. Rohan Bilney did the damage with the ball taking 4-33 for Harrismith. Half-centuries from Tom Buchanan and Arron Quartermaine helped Harrismith finish on 3-151 off 27.5 overs. Buchanan whacked 61 while Quartermaine added 58 to guide their side home as Draper-Gibbs grabbed 2-22 for Towns. Wandering won their third game of the season, proving too strong for Cuballing to win by seven wickets. Cuballing posted 9-143 batting first with David Lange top scoring with 25 and Joe Dowling adding 22. Bailey Parsons was strong with the ball for Wandering taking 3-29 while Sean Knapp snared 2-27. In reply, Wandering were always in control as Bryan Hardie scored 52 and Bailey Parsons finished unbeaten on 29.
