Armstrong Creek young gun Grace Jones looks destined for higher honours as she took 3-22 from eight tidy overs to help her side beat Newcomb in A2 Grade.

Jones, a very promising leg-spinner, took 3-22 to go with her four wickets last weekend to help the Titans to a powerful win.

Armstrong Creek made 8-167 with Dylan Flanagan (35) top scoring while Jason Clark (4-29) was superb for the Bulls.

Jones then stepped in and helped rout Newcomb for 85 in another promising display.

Winchelsea performed strongly away from home against an in-form Barwon Heads.

The Heads made 7-147 with James Hodder (38 from 91), Max Melzer (37 from 65) and Darcy Hewitt (30 from 24) the mainstays.

Winch chased the target easily thanks to skipper Adam Korth (43 off 55), Ash Hubbert (41 off 66) and Angus Leigh (38 off 51). Jack Johnstone continue his good season with 2-12 from eight for the Gulls.

Drysdale gun Nick Hallam made a blistering 95 from 93 deliveries to give his side a win against Little River.

Peter Davidson also made a fine 60 from 86 balls to steer the Hawks to 6-187.

Young gun Bailey Sykes then took the game from the Redbacks with 5-42 to give his side a 39-run win.

Portarlington flexed its muscles by thrashing Wallington.

Sam Chisholm made 41 from 38 in Port’s 7-152 while Wallington made 116 in reply with Paul Wells taking 4-11.
