Hanwood straight into fourth grade grand final

After Exies and Hanwood finished tied on the top of the fourth-grade ladder, the sides went head-to-head for the first spot in the decider.

Exies batted first, and the loss of early wickets put them under pressure as Hayden Forner (1) and Amandeep Singh (3) to leave the Exies side at 2/10 after four overs.

Billy Evans (10) and James Roche got the score to 21 before Evans fell to Oliver Bartter (1/5) while Lucas Irvin (0) fell two balls later to the bowling of Luke Demamiel (1/8).

Jack Mingay played the supporting role to Roche as they but on 17 runs before Roche found a stable partner in Jacob Testoni. 

Testoni (28) and Roche (35) were the other batsmen to make double digits as they were bowled out for 93 in 22.3 overs.

Hanwood were never really challenge in their chase as Harry Rowston (43*) and Oliver Bartter (44 retired not out) as they were able to pass the target two wickets down and with 12.2 overs in hand.

In the second semi-final, Coro has ended Leagues fourth-grade campaign after a close finish at Exies No 2.

While Michael Cudmore (1/20) was able to make an early breakthrough dismissing Joseph Bellicanta (8) with the score on nine.

That would be the last bit of success for the Panthers as Jake Rand and Ben Signor were able to pill the runs on the scoreboard. 

The pair were able to put on 87 runs for the second wicket before both batsmen were forced to retire on 40.

Only Mark Bennett (16*) was able to post double digits as the Cougars posted 5/133 off their 25 overs.

Jake Rand backed up his performance with the ball to dismiss Cudmore (4) in the second over.

Patrick Gunn (9) and Noah Gaske (6) were able to get their side to 19 before the loss off four quick wickets put the Panthers under pressure as Cooper Rand (4/6) picked up three of the wickets.

Leo Forner (14), Alex Minato (16) and Enzo Nolan (16*) gave their side a chance but eventually fell six runs short as they were bowled out on 127 in 23.3 overs.
