HORSHAM Saints have bowled their way to the grand final of the Horsham Cricket Association after an impressive day-two display against Lubeck-Murtoa on Sunday.

The side, along with a strong day-one batting display, made 229 while limiting Lubeck-Murtoa to just 84. 

Ben Tait was the main man with the ball in hand taking four wickets in just seven overs, making up for his duck on day one. 

Haydn Smith had a stellar two day semi-final taking three wickets in six overs and making 80 on day one.

It was clear the Saints players were confident bowling four Lubeck-Murtoa players on ducks. 

The best batsman for the losing side was Craig Wilson who made 39 bowled out by Gary Davidson. 

Smith bowled two of the final three batsmen out for one and a duck. 

In the other semi-final clash the Colts chased well on day two with overs to spare before winning the game against the Bullants 

Colts made 5-146 while the Bullants made 140. 

However, It was a disjointed start to day two for the Colts with opener Dylan Arnott making 12 and his partner Nathan Keel making five. 

Third-in-line Josh Colbert went out for a duck. 

Nathan Koenig and Ben Millar were the big hitters on Sunday, creating problems for the Bullants. 

Koenig made 50 while Millar made 39 not out. 

Bullant Brendan Wills bowled well to start the second day off taking two wickets from the opening three. 

Jordan McDonald and Jye Walter were the only other players to take wickets tallying one a piece.
