WALLA players have been left dumbfounded after playing in their second tie in as many weeks against Osborne at Osborne on Saturday.
After being set a formidable 9-152 for victory, the Hoppers leveled the scores with nine wickets down when Mitch Lauritzen was bowled by Jayden Klemke on the second last ball of the innings.
The result came only a week after Walla tied with Walbundrie.
“It’s unbelievable,” skipper Tom Simmons said.
“I haven’t heard of it happening before. I guess it shows how even the competition is.”
Walla batsman Mark Taylor was outstanding in the chase making 84 not out with Simmons (16) and Justin Carter (13) the only other batsmen to reach double figures.
Osborne’s score was based around the Perryman brothers with Harry (39), Nick (33), Ed (31) and Joe (10) batting well.
Henty’s Braeden Pantling and Shannon Terlich steered the Swampies to a four-wicket win over rivals Culcairn.
Chasing 154 for victory, the Swampies were in trouble at 3-51 before Pantling (29) and Terlich (67) came to the rescue with an 81-run partnership.
Steve Brand topscored for the Lions with 58 while Matt Relf made 21.
A fine 94 from TRYC skipper Todd Hannam failed to save his side from an eight-wicket loss to an in-form Walbundrie.
Ladder leader Holbrook defeated Lockhart by six wickets and Rand’s Will Swift hit a half-century to help the Pigeons to victory over Burrumbuttock.
