Teams across the Bunbury & Districts Cricket Association will have one last chance to notch a win in 2022 before the season goes on a break for the holiday period.

Round nine of the men’s competition will be taking place across the Greater Bunbury region on Saturday as teams look to end 2022 on a high note.

This weekend’s match-ups will finally complete the first rotation of fixtures for the 2022-23 season, after their initial contests in round two were cancelled due to rain, with all teams receiving two points.

For Eaton, Donnybrook and Marist, this weekend will be crucial to try to secure a top-four finish before the Christmas and New Year break.

Eaton sits in third place on the ladder with four wins and three losses and will be looking to continue building momentum after defeating Donnybrook at Egan Park last weekend.

Eaton will be hosting Marist at Eaton Sports Ground, where they will be keen to further secure their spot on the ladder.

On the other hand, Marist will be looking to capitalise on a chance to break into the top four if they manage a win over Eaton.

Marist sit in fifth place on the ladder with three wins and four losses and will be looking to bounce back after suffering an upset loss to Collie last weekend.

Despite hitting a slump in form and losing the past three matches, Donnybrook cannot be counted out of the top four race.

The Dons are in fourth place on the ladder with four wins and three losses.

After falling short against Eaton last weekend, Donnybrook will be looking to bounce back in a big way and break their losing streak.

However, they will have a tough challenge ahead of them when they play Colts at Bunbury Recreation Ground.

After bringing the fight to Leschenault, Colts will be looking to build resilience and maintain second place on the ladder.

Leschenault will be looking to continue their undefeated run when they go up against Hay Park at the Hay Park Multi Sports Pavilion.

The Green Caps have been unstoppable throughout the season so far, notching their seventh win after holding off Colts last weekend.

Hay Park, who sit in sixth place on the ladder, will be looking to start up a winning streak after beating Dalyellup last weekend and will also be keen to end 2022 with what could be the upset of the season if they manage to topple Leschenault.

Collie and Dalyellup will both be looking to stray from the bottom of the pack when they go head to head at Roche Park.

Following Collie’s win over Marist last weekend, Collie remain in seventh place on the ladder with two wins and five losses, while Dalyellup have just one win to their name after being on the receiving end of a losing streak since round three.
