The Billiegoats struggled to stem the runs – Jack Banwell took seven scalps, albeit at a costly 113 runs.

One Tree Hill resumes day two at 0/4.

Travis McIntyre was best with the ball for Westies, recording an economical 4/6.

In grade two, Riverside will defend a formidable total against Salisbury West.

Riverside stormed to an impressive 211, led by a solid 44-run effort from Daniel Jeffery.

Daniel Stutley (5/93) was best with the ball for Westies, before their reply hit an early snag and they will resume at 1/7.

Meanwhile, Two Wells will look to stem the bleeding as Salisbury North continues to charge ahead.

North posted 4/147 on day one, led by a stellar knock by Jayden Saint(82).

Lachlan Goss (2/44) has been Two Wells’ best performer with the ball.
