Nulla and South West Rocks both completed successful run chases in the Macleay Valley Cricket Association’s first grade competition last Saturday.

Nulla remained undefeated an applied more pressure onto the winless Rovers as they chased down Rovers’ total of 73 inside 30 overs. 

The damage was done with the ball as all of the Nulla bowlers chipped in with a wicket while Rovers’ Lachlan Dowling was the only real threat with the bat as he notched 40 runs before he was dismissed.

Meanwhile it was a similar story in the other match as South West Rocks secured their first victory of the season in a win against Frederickton.

Only one Frederickton player reached double figures with the bat as they posted a total of 86.

South West Rocks lost four wickets on the way to scoring 88 runs in the 24th over.

Opening batsman Jesse Meehan top scored for the Rocks as he finished unbeaten on 32.
