Barwon Heads left-hander Angus Ford made a superb 74 against a Queenscliff C Grade side that contained former star A grader Toby Smith.

Ford is only 13, but showed the maturity and technique of someone much more experienced, playing beautifully with deft flicks off his hips and some nice drives to pilot his team to a win.

Nathan Taylor made 69 from 115 deliveries for Ocean Grove in B1 Grade.

Veteran Troy Hardy smacked 89 for Jan Juc while Luke Schilling took 4-25 for Barwon Heads.

Marcus Warton took 4-12 for Inverleigh in B2 Grade while BPCA legend Paul McGrath made 57 and took 3-19 for Port.

St Leonards speedster Lachie Campbell celebrated his 150th club game with 4-26 and hit the winning runs with his valuable 20 not out batting at No 11. The Saints were 9-112 chasing 137, but Campbell and Anthony Ward (33 not out) put on 30 for the last wicket.

Young leggie Noah Jeffrey took four wickets for Collendina against Armstrong Creek in B2 Grade while Riley Morrison had a player of the match performance in C Grade with 6-11 and 42 not out for Wallington.

In D Grade, Tim Brennan made 104 not out and veteran Mark Stoneham made 90 for Anglesea.
