The Macleay Valley Cricket Association first grade competition has once again heated up near the top of the table as Rovers earned their first victory of the season against the competition leaders Nulla.
Jarrod Prosper’s unbeaten 116 proved too much to overcome for Nulla, as they fell 32 runs short of victory.
Danny Powick (63), Brett William (26) and Lachlan Munday (15) all chimed in with the bat to help the side reach 4/250.
Cooper Petterson (3/30 off seven overs) and Carlos Peters (3/40 off seven overs) did the job with the ball in hand to dismiss Nulla for 219 in the 35th over.
Meanwhile South West Rocks were able to hold off Stuarts Point/Eungai and earn a narrow five-run victory.
South West Rocks were dismissed in the 31st over for a total of 143 and their hopes of a victory was looking ominous before Stuarts Point/Eungai suffered a batting collapse.
South West Rocks bowler Mitchell Smith did the majority of the damage as he picked up five wickets.
