Two sides brought home wins after a positive weekend against Camberwell.
In the firsts, the bar was set, with a large 330 in the sights of the Camberwell batsmen.
But it just wasn’t to be for the Magpies as the Swans bowlers were too good, winning by 116 runs.
All of the bowlers bowled tight in a dominant first session and a half, with the Magpies 6/84 and on the ropes.
A couple of small partnerships dragged the game out, but the job was complete with Jonah Serong cleaning up the tail, finishing with 3/49.
Nathan Lambden bowled fast all day, finishing with 1/52 as Jackson Fry bowled tight, finishing with 2/21.
Skipper Luke Wells finished with 1/33 and Lachie Sperling 1/34.
But without the performances of Michael Wallace (125), Devin Pollock (83) and Jared Maxwell (67), the bowlers would have had nothing to defend.
It was a great performance, putting the firsts just outside the top eight.
In the seconds, some high-quality batting performances were required, but they just couldn’t get it done, losing by 97 runs.
A lot of the batsmen got starts, with Joel Mitchell on his way to a hundred before throwing it away, making 56.
A shining light for the seconds was Ashvin Adihetty, digging in to make 65 not out off 134 balls, showing the way for the batters.
In the thirds, it wasn’t a good day, as they went down by 78 runs.
No batsmen could string together a partnership, or get themselves above 50.
The top scorer was Nivin Sathyajith, making 42 not out.
The thirds have a lot of work to do to get themselves into winning positions moving forward.
In the fourths, captain Adam Hanger has the side purring, winning their third game by six wickets and sitting fifth on the ladder.
They were tasked with chasing down 229 for victory and the batsmen made the job look easy.
Dhanusha Gamage and Rohan Sharma put on 51 for the first wicket before Sharma fell for 22.
Gamage and skipper Adam Hanger then put the side into a strong position, putting on 78, before Hanger fell for a well-compiled 57.
Some smaller partnerships and some big hitting at the end by Brayden Lambden pushed the side past the total with ease.
Overall, there were some positive results and performances across the board by the batsmen and bowlers as they look forward to taking on Dandenong next week.
