Consistent line and length was the key behind Horsham Saint Jackson Davidson's career-best figures in the Horsham Cricket Association on Saturday.
Davidson took four wickets and conceded just five runs across two impressive spells against Colts, helping the Saints to an 85-run victory on day two.
Davidson said he was pleased to be rewarded for his consistency.
"I just tried to bowl consistent areas to each batsman's individual weaknesses, which we outlined as a team," Davidson said.
"I'm not the quickest bowler, but I just try to hit the right line and length and get the ball to move away a little bit, or change it up and get one to swing back, depending on the format."
Three wickets from Jono Carroll (3-7) and two to Aiden Laffy (2-31) also helped the Saints skittle Colts for 153. A half century from Damiano Boddi and 31 for Marc Thomas were the pick of the Colts' bastmen.
Davidson said he was feeling more comfortable in the Horsham Cricket Association's premier grade. His four-wicket haul took him to 10 for the season, already eclipsing his eight from 15 matches last season.
"A couple of years at that level now has helped me develop and improve each game and each year," Davidson said. "Having Tony (Cacaviello) back this year has helped as well, not just me but everyone in the team, with bowling, batting and fielding. Having him back has been very good."
Davidson said his Dad, Saints legend Gary Davidson, had also been major help in his development.
"Dad has been a big influence the whole way," Davidson said.
"He gives me plenty of advice. If I do something bad or good, he's always the first to tell me.
"I love playing with him. It's a good experience and he obviously knows a lot about the game. He's like another coach to me."
In other matches, Laharum claimed its first two-day victory of the season, upsetting the Jung Tigers at City Oval.
The Tigers resumed on day two at 3-44 chasing 205, setting the scene for a tense and dramatic Saturday afternoon.
The Tigers looked in with a chance at 6-161, but the dismissal of Sam Leith for 34 triggered a late collapse.
It was imported English duo Adam Barber (4-52) and Anthony Molloy (3-65) that led the way for the Mountain Men, combining for seven wickets from 45 overs to dismiss the Tigers for 181.
Meanwhile Homers' Jason Kannar capped off a perfect individual match, taking five wickets for Homers in an outright victory against an undermanned Blackheath-Dimboola. Kannar made an unbeaten century on day one for Homers.
At Rupanyup, Noradjuha-Toolondo fell well-short of Rup-Minyip's 402, all out for 167.
