All Haisman Shield games finished in a draw on Saturday after rain made any play impossible.

All Haisman Shield games finished in a draw on Saturday after rain made any play impossible.

Five A-grade games were in the balance heading into day two of round eight.

Cricket Shepparton made the decision just after 9am on Saturday to call off all senior games, with junior matches already abandoned on Friday.

Shepparton United will feel most hard done by from the weather gods after smashing an association season-high of 315 against Karramomus on day one.

United won just one of seven one-day games, but was in a powerful position thanks to opener Rehan Bari’s majestic 168.

Central Park-St Brendan’s was 0-22 in pursuit of Mooroopna’s 206, Numurkah posted 211 against Old Students, Northerners got to stumps on day one at 2-36 chasing Tatura’s 151 and Katandra recovered from a fairly dire position to make 243 against Kyabram.

All teams received three points each for the drawn matches.

Newly crowned one-day premier Katandra sits on top of the ladder, with Central Park-St Brendan’s and Numurkah breathing down the Eagles’ neck.

Kyabram is in fourth, while Northerners and Mooroopna round out the top six.

There will be one more round of two-day games before the Christmas break starting this Saturday, with the competition to resume again on January 6.

Meanwhile, yesterday’s inaugural B-grade one-day final was called off because of the pitch at Howley Oval being unsuitable for play.

Tatura was slated to play Undera in the limited overs decider.

With no spare day for the game, the higher-ranked Tatura was declared the winner of the competition.

Murray Valley Cricket Association and Goulburn Murray Cricket games were also called off because of the wet weather.
