From centuries to massive wicket hauls, there was plenty of action throughout the Bunbury and Greater Bunbury regions during the seventh round of the 2022-23 Bunbury & Districts Cricket Association season.

In the second grade competition, Colts’ Caillin Blackwood dominated the field to help record a victory over Dalyellup in less than 18 overs.

Despite no Dalyellup batters managing more than 30 runs individually, they made a solid lead after they were all out for 155 in under 43 overs and managed an early wicket in catching Ashton Goodwin out for a duck with the first ball.

However, once Blackwood got going for Colts, there was no stopping him.

Blackwood smashed 119 runs off 55 balls to help Colts surpass Dalyellup on 2-157 in under 18 overs.

Elsewhere, Harvey-Benger maintained their strong form with a win over Hay Park 4-134 to all out for 132 to remain on top of the ladder, Leschenault defeated Eaton 5-213 to 9-210, and Marist beat Burekup 10-206 to 10-95.

In the third grade competition, Rising Stars defeated Collie 3-140 to 10-136, Colts were victorious over Dalyellup via forfeit, Capel defeated Leschenault 10-158 to 10-125 and Donnybrook rolled Marist 7-249 to 10-99.

In the fourth grade competition, Harvey-Benger defeated Hay Park 4-105 to 10-104, Colts beat Dalyellup 6-139 to 10-138, Leschenault defeated Eaton 5-92 to 10-91 and Marist beat Dardanup 5-138 to 10-134.

Theivendran hit 133 runs off 114 balls, including 15 fours and four sixes, in a dominant effort until he was stumped by Aaron Worlley in one of Aaron Andrews’ three wickets of the day.

Theivendran showed his versatility by taking 3-16 as one of Rising Stars’ seven bowlers for the match.
