Photo by Sue StimpsonThe three games scheduled to be played at Redlands Tigers’ home grounds at Wellington Point on Saturday, plus the away game for third grade, were abandoned because of wet weather, resulting in a draw for each team.

After being in a winning position thanks to a solid innings of 65 from Matthew Bloye, Redlands lost valuable wickets. It took the number 9 batsman to score the winning runs. Wests batted again and were three for 41, with Fraser Haynes taking two wickets for four runs.
