SIMON Mackie smacked a sensational century for the Coleambally Nomads on Saturday as the bat proved far mightier than the ball in second-grade action across Griffith.
Mackie was in a dangerous mood against Exies, reaching his 116 in just 82 deliveries.
His innings included nine whopping fours and he went over the boundary at Showground No.2 an amazing six times.
Exies stalwart Brenton Harrison could only look on in admiration.
"He was immoveable," Harrison said.
"He just batted superbly. He didn't give anyone any chances either.
"We bowled poorly but to his credit, he made us pay."
Mackie's rampage meant the Nomads were always in control of the match, with their 30 overs in the middle ending with the side at 2-194.
When opener Manoj Beri fell for zero inside the first over, it seemed mission impossible.
The task proved to be exactly that, despite first-grade regular Jamie Winkler steadying the ship with a quickfire 37 that featured four boundaries.
Jim Wythes and Tom Fuller both took three wickets as the Coleambally side won by 106 runs.
Elsewhere, Diggers opener Mark Favell blasted a 53 but it wasn't enough for his side in a two-wicket loss to Leagues Club Panthers.
Favell set things up nicely for Diggers, who finished on 9-154 after 40 overs, with fleeting stands alongside Graeme Lyons (10), Ben Wade (12) and Chris Conlan (32).
However, Leagues held their nerve through some testy early moments with the bat to chase down the required score with more than six overs to spare.
Number eight batsman James Shelton was the star with 43, while Travis Payne (27) and Jaydip Patel (23) also held their own.
At Ted Scobie Oval in Collina, Coro pair Jamie Bennett and Scott Smith were on song in a 89-run rout of the Yenda Spitfires.
Bennett (45) and Smith (48 not out) top-scored for the Cougars with their innings of 5-168 from 30 overs laid on a foundation of two key partnerships.
In-form opener Brad Saunders (27) first combined with Bennett, and when the former was removed, Smith came in and swung wildly, hitting five fours and one six.
The Spitfires hopes of recovering were dashed in a shocking top-order collapse, with the side's first six batsmen knocked over for a combined 15 runs.
Were it not for the unbeaten Scott Wade's 31, the scorecard would have made for even rougher reading.
