Collingwood Park and Royals both tuned up for their first semifinal showdown this Saturday, with double bonus point victories in the last regular round of the Albany and Districts Cricket Association A-grade season on Saturday afternoon. Park scored at just over three runs an over on their way to posting 6-165 batting first at Turf North and it proved far too much for their opponents Mt Barker. Captain Matt Heberle made 40no from a marathon 128 balls and middle-order contributions from Nathan Dovey (39) and Jesse Spaanderman (37) helped set up the emphatic round 15 win. Steve Van Nierop struck with the first ball of the run chase as the competition’s leading run scorer Alex Fergie was bowled for a golden duck. Paul Osborne’s promotion to number three was short-lived as he was bowled for one and the Bulls were in disarray when Van Nierop dismissed Clayton Wood to leave them 3-3. Van Nierop’s wonderful spell with the ball continued as he had Bulls captain Jeremy Wood caught behind. Van Nierop finished with 3-11. Tim Shephard (20) and Todd Hammond (22) provided some resistance but the Bulls were outplayed as Byron Spaanderman also claimed three wickets to give Park a 101-run win, with the Bulls finishing on 9-64. Meanwhile at Turf South, Royals broke a four-game losing streak as they demolished Denmark by 226 runs. The Lions top order fired as Mitch Green (69), Digby Nuthall (70) and Ted Batchelor (47) got among the runs to help their side post an imposing 8-288. Englishman Ben Attrill snared three scalps but he couldn’t contribute with the bat as the Magpies collapsed to be all out for 62 with only Damien Schwarzbach (19) reaching double figures. Both Marcus Mellon and Tyler Crommelin took three wickets.
