Glen Iris move to second, East Doncaster, Bulleen score vital wins 

Matt Vaiano and Rob Sayer lead East Doncaster to vital win against the Bulls

East Doncaster have notched up an imporant home ground win against North Balwyn in their Round 8 one day match. Outstanding all-round performances by Matt Vaiano (69* and 4/27) and Rob Sayer (55 and 2/24) saw the home side claim an important win and put them well on the radar as we head into the break. For the Bulls, the absence of James Binney in the attack was felt as the loss has seen them slip to third.

Mont Albert too strong for Old Carey

Scorecard Round 8 One Day Match:  Mont Albert 8/190 def Old Carey 9/153

Mont Albert have consolidated their place at the top of the ladder with a win against the defending champs Old Carey. A solid top order effort by the home side lead by Charlie Waite (52) and Fateh Singh (39) saw them post a healthy and very defendable 190. Daniel Clarke (3/44) took the bowling honours.  In reply, the defending champs got off to a positive start, but really struggled to get ahead of the chase at any stage. They showed their typical grit by batting out the overs but with just one win for the season, they will need to not put a foot wrong after the break if they want to claim a finals spot.

Scorecard One Day Match Round 8.  Canterbury 8/141 def by Bulleen 3/142
Bulleen has scored an important away win heading into the break - accounting for Canterbury who let a good chance slip to consolidate a top four spot. Batting first, Canterbury's 141 was never going to be enough - Will Oliver (46) top scored for the hosts who struggled against Bulleen's slow bowlers. Udara Ravindu (53* from 65) was excellent for Bulleen who overtook the total in 34th over.

Lucas Skelton great form continues as Glen Iris move to second

Scorecard One Day Match Round 8.  Glen Iris 2/185 def Heathmont 8/181

Glen Iris goes to the break filled with confidence having accounted for Heathmont at home. The win elevates Glen Iris to second on the ladder and is reward for a consistent first half of the season.  Despite an outstanding 96 by opener, Tom Thirlwell, Heathmont posted an under-par 181 at the Eric Raven Reserve - the other batters had no answers to an excellent bowling effort by the home side - lead by Lucas Skelton (5/33) who is in great form. With the visitors missing the injured Dylan Howard - Lachy Holmes (78*), David Carman (48) and Nathan Boucher (48*) made short work of the chase.
