Coro Cougars were able to win the race against the weather on Saturday afternoon. They were the only side across the two top grades of Griffith cricket to achieve a result as they comprehensively defeated Exies Eagles.
The Eagles won the toss and elected to bat however they would have been regretting that decision with the loss of Dan Brady (6) to the bowling of Andrew McIntyre in the third over while Josh Davis (8) became McIntyre (2/12) second victim four overs later.
Sean Culgan (2) followed soon after to have Exies fall to 3/17 and they weren't able to recover from that position.
Bradyn Challis (19) was the only batsmen who offered any kind of resistance as Jamie Bennett (5/6), John Witherspoon (2/25) and Andrew Potter (1/4) clean up the remaining wickets to see Exies bowled out for 52.
While Kyle Bennett (1) fell to the bowling of Josh Davis in second over Brady French and Potter were able to get their side to within three runs of success before Jimmy Mann (2/12) picked up the wickets of French and McIntyre (0).
Despite the two quick wickets, Coro still had plenty of time on their hands when Potter (26*) hit the winning runs in the ninth over to see the Cougars take a seven-wicket win before the rain rolled in.
The other two games from around Griffith weren't quite as lucky.
Diggers were able to make a flying start to their game against top of the table Leagues Club with Mark Favell and Damien Browning putting on 45 inside the first eight overs before Vilish Patel struck to remove Browning (17).
Favell kept the score ticking over alongside Paresh Patil before he was knocked over by Babar Safdar (9), but Diggers still looked to be holding the upper hand as they reached drinks on 2/80.
Shae Prudham (1/22) returned to the attack to pick up the wicket of Favell (44) before the rain hit and saw the game abandoned in the 25th over with Diggers on 3/94.
The game between Hanwood and Coleambally was also washed out without a result able to be determined.
Jordan Whitworth (23) top-scored for the Hanwood side while Owen Stubbs (11), Neil Geltch (10), Chris Barbagallo (17) and Sam Robinson (10) were able to make double digits as the side was bowled out for 117.
The Nomads top three bowlers did the damage with Sam Breed (2/22), Sanil Chilukuri (2/24) and Avinash Gurram (2/12) taking two wickets each however the rain hit before Coleambally had the chance to bat.
