YOUNG Burrumbuttock batsman Zac Barrenechea hit his third century of the season to steer the Swans to a 151-run victory over Brocklesby at Burrumbuttock on Saturday.

Barrenechea made 126 in a score of 5-265 and grabbed 2-14 as the Roos crumbled to be out for 114.

He has scored 585 runs this season with Walla’s Tom Simmons in hot pursuit on 579.

Barrenechea and veteran opener David Williams (64) put on 174 for the opening partnership to set up the huge score.

“Zac’s having a great year,” Williams said.

“It’s always good to play well when the Neil Bradford Cup is on the line.”

Walla retained the Courage Cup with a 14-run win over Walbundrie at Walbundrie.

Opener Simon Odewahn made his first half-century for the Hoppers while Simmons (52) and Mark Taylor (38) also batted well in a score 4-206.
