TYABB has given itself very chance to beat Carrum and keep its season alive with an impressive performance with the bat on Saturday.

Yabbies’ opener Nick Taranto hit 116 and number three Michael Edwards went agonising close to a century, scoring 96, to help the Yabbies to 4/270.

Troy Hollingsworth was the best of the Lions’ bowlers with three of the four wickets, finishing his 30 overs with 3/92.

Dromana is in some real strife as it tries to reign in Balnarring’s 206.

The Hoppers did well with the ball to keep the Saints to a gettable total.

Jye Voelkl was at his best for the Hoppers with 5/53 from 15.4 overs, while Craig Dunlop snared 3/60 from 20 overs.

In reply, Dromana is in some early strife at 2/35. Kierran Voelkl is not out 21.

Ballam Park should be favorite heading into day two of its match against Tootgarook.

However, the Knights would need to be at their best and the Frogs’ bowlers would need to have a stinker for the home side to win.

Travis French with 55 and Coen Packer with 42 got the visitors away to a flier before the wheels fell off.

Stuart Plunkett was superb for the Knights with 4/59 from 26.5 overs, while Jake Williams and Jason Riley each claimed two wickets.

Top of the table Hastings is in a world of pain against Frankston YCW.

After doing the job with the ball and bowling out the Stonecats for 150, the Blues bats didn’t respond and are in some trouble at 3/18.

At one stage the Stonecats were 7/48 before Brett Hudgson (55) and Andrew Kitson (44) came to the rescue.

Robbie Hearn was surprisingly the pick of the bowlers with 3/8 from six overs for the Blues while Isuru Dias and Ryan McNamara picked up a couple each.

A lot is going to be on the shoulders of Luke Hewitt for the Blues to win.

Carrum Downs is just three wickets away from victory against Skye.

After making 181 in 55 overs, the Cougars have Skye in real trouble at 7/40 in reply.

After top scoring with the bats for the Cougars with 40, David Darvin did all the damage with the ball also, claiming 5/16 from 13 overs, including six maidens.
