IT was a wet weekend across the grounds for not only the Bomaderry Tigers - but the entire competition - as their first grade side were the only team to complete a match across the competition.

Again, another big wrap has to go out to the curators Ian and Paul Sawkins for preparing the pitch and field so well.

Kinghorn Motors first grade defeated Batemans Bay by 10 wickets – Bomaderry lost the toss and were put into the field, which was not a bad outcome given the weather forecast.

There was a steady flow of wickets from the onset thanks to Jordan Matthews (1/30) and John Muggleton (2/16), who's opening combination continues to grow.

Per the status quo this season, the wickets were shared among the bowlers as Michael Coulter, Justin Ganderton, Stu Jeffrey and Jarryd Sue all helped the Tigers restrict the Bay to 166 from a reduced 35 overs.

The Coulter brothers then get to work at the top of the order and made light work of the total, putting on an unbeaten opening stand of 167 - Josh Coulter with 80 not out, while Michael Coulter's stellar form continues with 74 not out.

The win takes Bomaderry to the top of the one day ladder - but with the bye coming up this week, there is a massive chance this will change.

Ella Bache second grade vs North Nowra  – match abandoned.

The Tigers got their innings underway unconvincingly sitting on 1/12 when play was called.

The team will need some luck if they are to qualify for the one day finals - now sitting in fifth position on percentage.

Kel Campbell third grade vs Bay and Basin – match abandoned.

Bomaderry got off to a strong start of 2/53 before the heavens opened.

Matt Hickmott was leading the way with an unbeaten 19, while Will Patterson was also well set on 14.

Super Cellars fourth grade vs Nowra – match abandoned.

The Tigers were off to a flyer in their match, with youngster Max Whelan scoring the first half century of his career (51), while opening partner Nick Kuncio (10) provided the supporting role in an opening partnership of 68, before the rain halted the day's play.

On Sunday, Ethan Adlington made his maiden century in the Twenty20 astro match vs Ulladulla, leading his team to 185.

Unbelievably, the monster total was not enough to get his side the win, with Ulladulla making the total five wickets down.

Jaffa Images u16s – played day one of their two day game against North Nowra-Cambewarra Blues.

Norths faced four overs to end the day and go into day two at 0/24.

Bomaderry Bowling Club u12s – were at home against Bay and Basin.

Losing the toss and being sent in, the Tigers managed 6/114, with Elijah Guyatt (27) and Max Beck (25) top scoring.

In return, Basin managed to pass the Tigers’ score in the second last over.

The pick of the bowlers was Jackson Ingram with 1/8, which included another great caught and bowled.

Elijah Guyatt was strong with 1/10, while Talea Miller was named player of the week with an excellent batting effort.
