BELVOIR captain Ryan McNeil says the lid is still firmly on at Kelly Park, despite the Eagles making their best start to a Provincial season.
The Eagles, who were promoted from the District competition ahead of the 2007-08 season, had never won their first three games.
That changed yesterday with an impressive win over Tallangatta.
After posting a super competitive total of 222, Belvoir then went onto to roll the traditional heavyweight for 174.
But McNeil wasn’t getting carried away with the Eagles’ early season form.
“The lid is still comfortably on, don’t you worry about that,” McNeil said.
“It’s been a good start but we need to continue on from here.
“We’ve set a standard and we need to keep it.”
Coach Mick Russell (65) and red-hot wicketkeeper-batsman Nat Sariman (71 not out) did the bulk of the damage with the bat.
Brad Freake (2-9) was terrific with the ball for the Eagles while Zac Simmonds added another four-wicket haul to his similar effort against Wodonga Raiders on Saturday.
The Eagles have already equalled their win tally from last summer and McNeil couldn’t hide from the fact that plenty had changed at the club.
“We’ve got a good culture, some recruits, a change of coach and just a better mindset,” he said.
“We’re not accepting honourable losses any more. We’re very aware of where we ended up last year and we’ll kick ourselves if we let that happen again.”
In other games, St Patrick’s finally broke through for a win when it exacted a hint of grand final revenge against Lavington.
Mark Butters tore through the Panthers, claiming 5-11, as the reigning premier was bowled out for 118.
Brayden Mulvey (37) was Lavington’s leading scorer.
Patties made 6-122 in response, with champion batsman Luke Restall scoring 44 of them.
North Albury hammered the Raiders.
Craig Taylor smashed 87, Ash Borella 54, while Dave Farrell was unbeaten on 65 as the Hoppers amassed 5-336.
The Raiders stood little chance in reply.
East Albury (7-188) was too good for New City (9-156).
Albury caused a major boilover when it stunned flag favourite Wodonga at Bilson Park.
Albury skittled the Bulldogs for just 112 and sneaked over the line six wickets down with just balls to spare.
