A Derek Thompson hat-trick and hard-hitting Darren Barrett century wasn’t enough to stop their Orange City side falling to CYMS in a thrilling Orange District Cricket Association third grade clash at Anzac Park on Saturday.

Thompson (3-42) claimed a hat-trick with the final three balls of CYMS’ innings, dismissing Jeremy Finlayson (9), Keiran Beattie (0) and Gerard Hannelly (0) to help restrict the green and golds to 8-246.

Ben Bock (129) and Luke Schuyler (85) did all the damage for CYMS, combining in a 206-run second-wicket partnership.

In reply Barrett (111) gave his side a sniff but ultimately the Warriors fell 27 runs short at 8-219.

In Saturday’s other third grade game CYMS Fahys (7-186) accounted for Kinross (183) by three wickets, on the back of Troy Eden’s knock of 76 not out.

Centrals (149) won a thriller against Kinross (9-147) in second grade, holding the students out in the last over of their chase to win by two runs.

Ed Dodds took remarkable figures of 7-22 from nine overs for Kinross, before Barney Davis (4-22) proved the main destroyer for Centrals.

Orange City (4-105) smashed Cavaliers (102) and CYMS Moroneys (7-200) thumped Gladstone (90) in the other reserve grade games.
