Top-two teams Manypeaks and Railways recorded resounding double bonus-point wins in round six of the Albany & Districts Cricket Association A-grade competition on Saturday.

The round was played on synthetic wickets after rain earlier in the week.

Peaks and the Tigers secured their fifth victories of the season in emphatic style.

Peaks bounced back from their narrow defeat to the Tigers last week, beating Collingwood Park by 136 runs.

Ryan Kinnear wound back the clock, taking a five wickets and posting a half century to star in the win.

Regan Poett and Aran Tilbury got their side off to a terrific start batting first as they put on 82 before Tilbury was caught for 47.

A well-compiled 46 from Poett to go with handy contributions from Kinnear (55 off 75 balls) and Warwick Durack (46 off 38) helped Peaks finish 6-259.

Park’s chase began horribly as Leroy van den Dool and Ben Grey fell in the first three overs.

When key batsmen Nathan Dovey and Nathan De Graaf were dismissed, Park had stumbled to 5-68.

Dovey (37), De Graaf (25) and Matt Heberle (24) were able to provide some resistance but Park lost 4-13 at the end to be bowled out for 123.

Kinnear capped a terrific day with 5-33 while Durack also snared the two prized wickets of Dovey and De Graaf.

The Tigers had no problems chasing down Denmark’s small total of 118.

The Magpies were bowled out in the 45th over, as import Ben Attrill top scored with 23.

Sam Want and Coen Marwick virtually put the game to bed with a 72-run opening stand.

Marwick was dismissed for an entertaining 54 and Want made 29 before young pair Aiden Dallimore and Flynn Cristinelli got the Tigers home in the 24th over, with only two wickets down, to secure the double bonus point.
