Ocean Grove Cricket Club coach Paul Jubber praised young all-rounder Jackson Kent after he helped bowl the Grubbers to victory over Winchelsea on Saturday.
Kent claimed his best A Grade figures and finished with 4/11 from 11.2 overs with six maidens.
Ocean Grove A Grade won by 43 runs after they dismissed the visitors for 109.
The Grubbers now sit in fourth position on 33 points after eight rounds.
“Jackson was again fantastic with the ball,” Jubber told the Voice.
“His bowling this season has gone to another level.”
Jubber said all bowlers played a role after the Grubbers were defending mediocre score on day one.
Winchelsea gained the upper hand on day one after bowling out Ocean Grove for 152 and was 1/32 in reply at stumps.
“Defending 152 is always a tough task,” Jubber said.
“All of our bowlers this week were disciplined and played to their strengths.”
Ocean Grove dominated on day two after the final eight Winchelsea wickets fell for only 47.
Spinner Thomas Kent (2/15) picked up two scalps while Dan Roddis (1/19), Sam Jubber (1/26), Lindon Giuffrida (1/18) and Paul Jubber (1/0) all claimed one each.
Sam Jubber (50) scored a timely half-century on day one, while Winchelsea trio Daniel Johnson (3/39), Dean Hampshire (3/20) and Jamie Doyle (3/21) all took three wickets.
The win set up an enthralling clash with second-placed Collendina this Saturday at the Snake Pit.
“We’ve been waiting for this opportunity,” Jubber said.
“They have some outstanding talent.”
In B Grade, Ocean Grove scored a big 232-run victory over Winchelsea.
Batting first Ocean Grove finished at 8/425 from 75 overs.
Four Grubber batsmen made half-centuries including opener Dylan Thorley (55), Nathan Taylor (73), Isaac Saunders (77) and unbeaten 70 not out from Jake Taylor.
Ocean Grove opening batsman Nathan Madden contributed 40.
Winchelsea was all out for 193 thanks to a three-wicket haul from Billy Foord Engelsman (3/33) off 14.4 overs.
Ocean Grove had a bye in C Grade and this Saturday will face bottom side Collendina.
The Grubbers won by 10 wickets in their D Grade one-day game against St Leonards.
Batting first St Leonards was all out for 76 from 27.3 overs thanks to a four-wicket haul from Ben Hughes (4/13) while Troy Wiseman took 3/15.
