Pine Lodge's under-16s are celebrating a famous win after coming from nowhere to beat Euroa in Saturday's clash.

Set 137 for victory by the Magpies, the Lodgers were 4-18, and 8-104, but dug in and produced a stirring comeback win.

Euroa's Darby Wilson picked up two early wicket as the Lodgers slumped to 3-15 and Ryan Hill took another for 4-18, but Liam Trevaskis and Will Batey steadied the ship with a 39-run stand.

Batey was caught for 25, but Angus Giffin pushed on with Trevaskis to take the Lodgers to 5-103.

But disaster struck as the Magpies took three quick wickets for one run, although Matthew Lowe looked composed at the crease making 26 as he helped the score to 8-134.

Lowe was run out with his side still needing four runs to win, but Trevaskis was able to steer his side home for the one-wicket win, finishing with a brilliant unbeaten 60.

Numurkah's loaded batting line-up had a huge day against Mooroopna in sealing a 120-run win.

Set 9-134, the Blues found five major contributors in posting 5-254 from their 45 overs, with Dustan Ebborn (47), Bailey Roberts (44), Hunter Verhoeven (40), Bailey Smith (38) and Dylan Craven (37 not out) all on fire.

Old Students-Notre Dame St Brendan's cruised to a 111-run win against Karramomus, making 176 in reply to the Bloods’ 65.

Joeve Cooper made a nice 69 not out.

And Tatura dug in to avoid an outright loss against Shepparton United despite being skittled for 21 last weekend.

United declared at 8-168 with Riley Menhenett dominating with 60, but Tatura saw out 27 overs to finish at 4-63.

● Under-16B play had Northerners produce a great batting display to beat Nagambie by 20 runs.

Set 172 by the Lakers, the Jets lost an early wicket, but took over from there, with Harvey Walker (60 not out) and Luca Mamone (32) adding 105 for the second wicket.

Declan Newbound (39 not out) and Kyle Montgomery helped the Jets finish at 5-192.
