LSC Colts took first innings points and shared bonus points with L&D CC after the game was washed out at Mark Taylor Oval on Saturday.

However, it was the only game that got anything close to substantial play with the rain almost skirting the ground.

Colts set up their win on the first day with a strong effort with the bat and an even better showing with the ball.

Lachlan O’Callaghan (41), Todd Pattison (22), Mark Burns (19) Josh Carn (15) and Sam Cooper (15) produced the bulk of the run in their side’s total of 144.

Jonte Schmetzer was the king with the ball for L&D, taking 5-16.

However, the Colts only needed two bowlers to rout the Ferrets and have them in dire straits on 9-60 at stumps.

Dan Davies scored 13, but it was Kieren O’Callaghn (24no) who was holding the innings together.

Carn had taken an impressive 5-23 off 17, while Burns was the only other bowler used and took 4-35 off 16.

FORM bowler for L&D Ben Elwin.

Resuming day two with just one wicket in hand, L&D knuckled down to hold out the Colts.

Relying solely on their strike weapons, Colts took 10.4 overs and conceded 13 runs before Sam Alampi (2) was bowled by Burns (5-46), stranding O’Callaghan on 37no.

Carn finished with 5-28 and the Colts had first innings points and a 68-run buffer.

By now the rain had caught up with the game, but the Colts set off in their second innings with Burns seemingly in a hurry.

He hit 36 off 21 before Antony Tocin (1-29) had him caught by O’Callaghan with the score on 45.

Jacob Houghton (11) played a support role as Matthew O’Callaghan (23) set about his task before O’Callaghan (2-12) removed the former and then Tocin repaid the bowler by taking the catch that removed his cousin.

Nathan Carn (7no) and Jarryd Day (3no) were at the crease when the rain finally came and the game was washed out.
