There is something satisfying about having the first innings points in the bag halfway through a two-day clash.
That is the scenario for Central Park-St Brendan’s.
The powerhouse Tigers have a 16-run lead with nine wickets in hand against Mooroopna at Deakin Reserve.
With the one-day final on Sunday, it will be interesting to see the approach of Central Park-St Brendan’s.
Brayden McGregor resumes on 71 and Layton McCann 28, with the young guns likely to be eyeing off major totals.
McGregor hit nine boundaries during his 88 balls last Saturday and is in the middle of a wonderful season.
The opener has made 319 runs to date at 63.8 and he is surely intent on turning what was a fourth half-century this campaign into a ton instead.
Mooroopna will be banking on some early breakthroughs in a bid to avoid a long day in the field.
Jeremy Mullane was the lone Cats bowler to secure a breakthrough on day one, dismissing Tigers skipper Ramadan Yze.
Mooroopna does possess the leagues second leading wicket-taker, Paul Marshall (13 at 12.46), while import Will Hale is equally adept with bat and ball.
