Bowning enjoyed a rare victory at the weekend, beating the in-form Soldiers Club with ease.
The Buffaloes opened the batting and dominated the Snipers’ bowling from the outset. A lot of batsmen got starts, with Beau Walker and Tim Hazell notching 38 and 30 respectively.
However, the big disappointment for the Snipers was the extras bowled, which totalled 21 by the completion of 45 overs.
The Buffaloes ended up posting an imposing 170 and quickly went about defending it stoutly. Beau Walker continued his impressive match, taking three wickets. Aaron Goode and Jason McAmish were the only two that really offered any resistance with the bat for the Snipers. The Snipers managed a total of just 130 and with it, notched only their third loss of the season.
In the other Triggs Shield fixture, the Piranhas got back on track after their loss at the hands of the Soldiers Club.
At Victoria Park, the Royal Hotel Pirates batted first and could only manage a lowly 31. Chris Bradley was the chief destroyer for the Golf Club, taking four scalps. The Piranhas chased down the target for the loss of two wickets.
In the Sweeney Cup, Dalton proved two good for the Aussie Horns. The Dingoes batted first and could only manage 86 runs. Somehow, the reigning champions defended the lowly score and were able to bowl out the Horns for just 79 of 24 overs.
The Golf Club Taipans easily rolled Murrumbateman 2 in the Sweeney Cup match played at John Allen Oval.
Murrumbateman batted first and managed just 80 before the side was all out. The Taipans chased the score down with ease, thanks in part to a dominant display from Steve Greenwood, who scored 44 not-out.
In the third Sweeney Cup fixture played at Murrumbateman Oval, Gundaroo had no problem chasing the measly 46 runs posted by Murrumbateman 1.
