Yallingup Yobs took top spot on the Busselton Margaret River Cricket Association A-grade ladder on Sunday with victory over St Mary’s.

Brothers Nate and Haig Colombera starred for the Yobs while stalwart Peter Grygorcewicz took 5-14 with two maidens off 8.3 overs.

The Yobs started brilliantly with 58 on the board before losing the first wicket and opener Nate Colombera who looked on his way to a half century until being trapped lbw by Grygorcewicz for 37.

That third wicket for Grygorcewicz changed the momentum and resulted in a middle order collapse which led to Yobs being all out for 147 after 47.3 overs.

On Barnad Park’s turf batting was tough for St Mary’s with only captain coach Daniel Hatton (34) making more than 12.

President of St Mary’s Ben Mattock lamented the Saints’ loss of quick wickets.

“We couldn’t get a good partnership together, it was disappointing because we felt we had kept Yobs to a score we could chase down,” he said.

Haig Colombera ripped through the top order on his way to 4-22 with three maidens from nine overs.

In other games St Mary’s defeated the Margaret River Hawks on Saturday in a 50-over rematch of last week’s T20.

The Saints batted first and made 7-223 from 50 overs, with wicketkeeper John Lloyd making 52 not out and Marc Ford 41. Margaret River were bowled out for 187.
