Picture

THE inclement weather was the only real winner as cricket was disrupted across Sydney at the weekend.

There was no play for Mosman with first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth grades all recording draws.

Third Grade took a first innings win following a stellar effort the weekend before. At North Sydney, firsts was washed out, leaving the Bears in fifth and looking to secure points against Sutherland in the next round to gather finals momentum.

There was no further play in third, fourth or fifth grade, but thirds gained six points thanks to the previous week.

Fifth maintains its place at the top of the ladder.

In some sort of miracle, seconds bowled 34 overs at Bon Andrews Oval before a downpour ended the match with UNSW at 2/74.

James Aiken returned figures of 2/11 from 12 overs. Cammeray cricket club was also hit hard with no play at the weekend.

First grade had already won their game on first innings, having passed the Carlingford Waratah total for the loss of only two wickets the previous weekend.

They extended their lead at the top of the ladder as other games were drawn.

Second Grade missed out on the chance to close in on first place, but sit comfortably in the playoff places.

Fifth Grade are clear leaders in the competition, but Sixth Grade are currently out of the playoff positions.

C Grade retained their spot in the top four, while D Grade are fifth with four one-day games remaining.
