A five-wicket haul to Jack Hutchinson has helped Coro build their lead at the top of the table after they were able to pick up a winning draw against Leagues on Saturday.

The opening pairing was able to put on 78 runs in 18 overs before Ben Signor dismissed Keenan (24).
Wickets at regular intervals slowed the Panthers progress with Greenaway (45), Andrew Madden (12), Jimmy Binks (15) and Reece Matheson (5) falling to the bowling of Hutchinson to see Leagues sitting on 5/115 after 31.4 overs.
Daniel Bozic and Conor Edenden (25) were tasked with getting their side to a defendable total with plenty of over still up their sleeves.
The pair were able to put on 43 runs before Bozic (31) became the fifth wicket of Hutchinson (5/55) to see Leagues on 6/158 after 41.3 overs.
The Panthers tried to up the scoring late in their innings with little success as Dean Bennett (2/40) and Signor (3/28) to see the Leagues side bowled out for 177 in the 48th over.
The Cougars needed to score at 3.68 runs per over to take the winning draw but got off to a tough start with Bennett (0) falling in the first over to the bowling of Fawad Shah.
Mitch Williams-Hedges and Haydn Pascoe were able to get their side to 27 before the loss of three quick wickets with Teei Piawi and Shah (2/25) took a wicket each while Rob Rand (1) was run out by Raj Singh.
Pascoe and Tim Rand got their side out of the tricky position with a partnership of 29 runs before Rand (11) was caught by Singh off the bowling of Edenden (1/39) to see Coro fall to 5/61.
Will Kennedy joined Pascoe out in the middle, and the pair were able to get their side past the 100-mark with a 70-run partnership before Pascoe (59) was dismissed by Piawi (2/51) however the Cougars were still ahead of the run rate needed for the winning draw sitting at 3.89.
Kennedy (41*) and Signor (4*) were able to see off the remaining overs to see the Cougars finish their innings on 4/146 off 36 overs meaning the Cougars took the winning draw with a superior run rate of 4.05.
