QUACK, quack, quack - it's duck season in the Orange District Cricket Association.
A total of 27 batsmen failed to trouble the scorers in the ODCA's lower grade competitions last weekend, with City Warriors (five) and Cavaliers (four) contributing the highest amount of ducks per team over the course of the weekend.
As a result, the second grade and Centenary Cup batsmen's woes contributed to some remarkable figures with the ball.
CYMS' spinner Pat Madden netted 4-0 off 3.3 overs in the green and golds' massive 157-run win over City Warriors.
CYMS batted first and hit 9-220 from 40 overs before bowling out Warriors for just 63.
Had CYMS dismissed Warriors skipper Jason Corby (41) a little earlier than they did, the result could have been a lot worse for the struggling City side.
Metro Force opening bowler Scott Kennedy picked up 3-10 off seven overs in his side's two-wicket win over Cavs.
Kennedy helped dismiss the opposition for 134 before Gavin Smith's 83 quickly led Force's batting to the total and the win eight wickets down in the 22nd over.
Centrals kept it tight in the field to defeat Kinross by seven wickets.
Bowlers Dave Aldis (4-16) and Roshan Eisemann (2-11) each bowled out their eight overs effectively, removing the students for just 105.
In reply, George Olsen hit 52 not out to help his side secure the victory three wickets down.
Rob Lo Faro (65) had little support in Waratahs' innings of 166 against Orange City seconds, with Mark Toynton claiming 4-32.
In reply Orange City chased the runs easily, losing just three wickets as Terry Beasley (51no) led the way.
Duncan Young guided Gladstone to a 56-run victory over Metro Wanderers.
Young belted 61 and along with Ben McAlpine (27), helped Gladstone to 193.
Wanderers fell short making it to 137 before being bowled out.
In the Centenary Cup, CYMS Fahys opener Ed Wright belted 95 in an opening-wicket stand of 127 with Steve Blackwood.
It helped set CYMS up for an impressive 5-234 from 36 overs.
Kinross thirds fought hard to chase it down but the students didn't have the runs as CYMS bowlers shared the wickets to dismiss Kinross for 92.
