BERRY-SHOALHAVEN Heads have plenty to do in the second day of their match against Bomaderry, after a very competitive opening day.

The visitors at Vic Zealand Oval chose to bat and posted a score of 155 – paced by Ethan Adlington’s 39.

The total would have been more if not for handy bowling from Ryan Hennessy (3/31) and Timothy Duggan (3/34) – while John Ulrick and Evan Logan both finished with two scalps.

When play resumes on day two, Berry will start at 5/57 – thanks largely to 32 not out from Ulrick.

Both Pat Keys and Nathan Wallace took two wickets for the Tigers.

At Ulladulla Sports Park, hosts Ulladulla United are well on top against Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemens.

Batting first, the hosts were led by Andrew Eggins (58) and Terry Dorrell (23) on their way to 121, despite John Guscott’s 5/28.

In reply, United slumped to be 8/58, with only Lorcan Edwards-Villalta (11 not out), Rahul Nuthakki (10 not out) and Dylan Higgins-Bell (10) reaching double figures.

Dorrell was the star with the ball, claiming 3/6, while Michael Ramsden (3/11) also finished with three scalps.

At Hanging Rock, Batemans Bay reached 172 all out at stumps against Sussex Inlet.

Tom Purcell (79) and Pat Griffin (46) were the heart and soul of the innings, while Stephen Jones took 3/13 for the visitors. 

Jayme Mulholland, Jake Westley and Jason Hornitzky claimed two wickets for the visitors.

At Sanctuary Point Oval, Stuart Dryburg’s 92 steered Bay and Basin to 7/235 declared before his team reduced Culburra to 3/58 at stumps.

Nowra have the bye.
