RSL-Colts Red produced one of the most dominant bowling performances of the season on Saturday to score a commanding RSL-Pinnington Cup win over Macquarie.
The Blues were rolled for just 25 as Colts Red celebrated a 165-run win.
The win also resulted in Colts Red leapfrogging teammates RSL-Colts White into the all-important third place on the ladder.
Colts Red made 5/190 after winning the toss and batting and much of the run-scoring came during a strong sixth-wicket stand between Sam Bass and Luke Holcombe.
Bass made 44 not out while Holcombe finished on 40 not out in the unbeaten 89-run partnership.
The last-placed Macquarie were always up against in the chase but the Colts attack made sure they got nowhere near the target.
Ryan Davies bagged 4/6 from his eight overs while Sam Abbott and Rhys Beauchamp took three wickets each in the rout.
Colts White fell from third after being beaten by Newtown.
A class 94 not out from Doug Potter led Newtown to 4/208 and then Bart Goodman, Rajesh Johar, and Dharminder Singh each took three wickets to knock over Colts White for 122.
South Dubbo United sits two points clear at the top of the ladder after trouncing clubmates South Dubbo.
Yogi Chawla's 3/8 headlined a strong all-round bowling performance which resulted in South Dubbo being bowled out for 84 and United then survived a nervy chase to claim victory.
United won by just three wickets, with Rajat Rai's 58 from 34 balls proving vital.
CYMS downed Rugby in the final match of the round.
Campbell Watts took 3/12 from eight in a handy team performance with the ball that kept Rugby to 9/122 and CYMS reached that target with 12 overs and six wickets in hand.
Daniel Smith made an unbeaten half century in the win.
In the RSL-Kelly Cup third grade competition, the Newtown Demons all but wrapped up the minor premiership by defeating Rugby.
