Barooga has shot to the top of Murray Valley premier division cricket following an outright win against Finley.

The Hawks wasted little time wrapping up outright points, winning by an innings and 37 runs.

Justin Maley secured 4-11 and Riyaad Henry finished with eight wickets for the match after a haul of 3-28.

Star all-rounder Ash Quinn scored a fine century as Nathalia returned to winning ways against Waaia.

Mark Meyland (3-53) proved the pick of the Waaia attack.

Cobram ace Shaun Downie made sure Katamatite’s batting woes continued.
