Wet weather played havoc with Round 3 of junior cricket on the weekend, with all games on Saturday understandably cancelled.
Under 14s on Friday night were the only grade to get a game in.
It was a one-sided affair at the Baillie St Oval when Horsham Saints Red hosted Colts.
For the Saints, the rot set in early in the innings when they lost a flurry of wickets from which they never recovered.
If it wasn't for Brodie Devlin standing firm with a defiant knock of nine not out, which straddled both ends of the innings, the Saints total of 7/46 would have been even gloomier.
The wickets were spread amongst the Colts side.
Dylan Newell impressed with the tidy sum of two for one.
Harry Millar, Tom Sandford and Lachie Ricketts each took a wicket.
When Colts batted, Logan Miller and Dylan Newell immediately took to the Saints bowlers in a great display of aggressive stroke play.
After retiring on 20, Miller returned to finish on 43 not out and Newell was not out on 18. Jett Munn retired on 11.
Best of the Saints bowlers was Joel Lees with two for six. Tom Sostheim and Shiv Bhutani took one wicket each.
At Dock Lake, the Laharum Warriors's side took on Saints Black. Saints won the toss and elected to bat,scoring 7/70 off the 20 overs.
The team all batted well, with top scores to Hugh Dougherty 10, Harry Crute nine not out and Jack Henry and Jack Keddie five runs each.
A special mention goes to Lucy Avery with two not out.
For Laharum Warriors, Tilly Sudholz took her first wicket and Jude Borlase bowled two maidens.
In reply, Josh Hutchinson led the way with the bat making 21.
Best bowlers were Dan Bell 2/11, Cody 1/2 and Jack Keddie 1/5.
Final score was Saints 7/70, Laharum Warriors 7/75.
