An unbeaten century from Swifts-Great Western’s Matt Delzotto led his team to a big nine-wicket win against Wickliffe-Lake Bolac on Saturday.

Delzotto blasted 100 from 17 overs in the second innings to play a big part in the team’s run chase against the struggling Wickliffe-Lake Bolac team.

The home team won the toss and chose to bat first, a decision that looked like the right call early on with the team working their way to 24 before losing Trevor Remfry to the bowling of Nick McCartney.

Once the top three were knocked over, the scoring slowed considerably with some late hitting from Rick Westgarth the only real highlight late in the innings, finishing with 33.

James Hollis was the pick of the Combine bowlers, finishing with 3-29 from eight overs.

The Combine chased the target with ease, losing just the one wicket, with Westgarth getting Mitch Ranton caught out for 16.

Westgarth went for plenty of runs, as he finished with figures of 1-44 runs from three overs.
