A fantastic bowling performance led Colts to a 65-run victory over Leschenault at the Leschenault Sports Grounds on Saturday.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, Colts set a modest total of 9/196, but their bowlers took consistent wickets to dismiss Leschenault for 131 in the 43rd over.

Colts’ day started horribly with Connor Ipsen and Jayden Goodwin both being dismissed for a duck in the opening two overs.

James Letchford (2-15 from 6 overs) removed Tim Stewart for eight runs, while captain Cruize Ciallella was run out for just nine.

When Murray Goodwin was dismissed for 12, Colts were in trouble at 5/66.

A 63-run partnership between Tim Raglan (59) and Jordan Stynes (45) helped to recover the innings, before some late hitting from Joe Barningham (20) got them to 196 from their 50 overs.

Leschenault began their run chase well with Jarrad Quinn (26) and Luke Slater (15) sharing a 41-run opening partnership before the former was dismissed by the young Ipsen.

Ipsen then removed the dangerous Kurt D’Agostino for just three runs, while Alistair Wood had Slater trapped in front and Matt Buchanan caught behind for just four runs.

When stand-in skipper Letchford was run out for 14, the Green Caps were in trouble at 5/75.

Ben Roberts (20) and Rhys Italiano (27) shared a quick 26-run partnership, but both were dismissed within a few overs of each other.

Barningham (2-7 off four overs) and Jayden Goodwin (1-5 off two overs) finished the big win.
