BEAUTY Point's TCL clash against Hadspen ended in an upset at its home ground yesterday.

Point won the toss and decided to bat, but was quickly dismissed by tight groundwork on the small field from the visiting team - leaving all out for 121.

Hadspen continued in solid form on the bat, and hit home scoring 2-127 in 25 overs.

Hadspen captain Anton Balym said the win could give the team a look-in at the finals.

"We lost an early wicket, but we put on 80 or so in the second wicket, with Donny Howard and Jason Brown," Balym said.

"I think we've got Uni and Diggers in the next two, which are lower on the ladder.

"We've just got to continue to improve. I think we're peaking at the right time and will continue on our finals campaign."

Beauty Point captain Stewart Prewer said the team would need to secure a win in the next two games to have a shot at the finals.

"Our top order failed," Prewer said.

"Basically we had only three scores over 10 in our top order. We were 5-43 and 6-51. They just had good line and length on our batsmen."

Beauty Point will go on to play Trevallyn and Longford in the next two rounds.

TREVALLYN easily toppled ACL in yesterday's clash at Brooks.

The team romped home at 2-122 on the bat, after bowling ACL all out for 116.

A strong partnership between Trevallyn's Andrew Fitz and Shannon Rumbel was supported by Andrew House, before he was caught by ACL's Aarron Thompson.

Reaching the boundary proved to be no issue for Rumbel, who made 71 runs not out on 47 balls.

A similar game was played at the university ground, where Legana took the first bat against Uni-Mowbray.

Sixth batsman Ian Champion dominated the scoreboard, securing 83 runs for Legana - adding to the team's 9-202 to 10-62 victory.

Diggers came in tight on the bat against Longford at Hagley, batting in the first innings and scoring 9-210.

Mark Knowles set up a quick pace for the match, finding an early boundary and remaining solid before he was caught by Kyle Blair.

Brent Kettle came in and established the team's score - hitting 56 runs off of 41 balls, punishing the bowlers with big hits to the boundary.

Longford came back to make 108, but was bowled all out as the Diggers took an early wicket and kept fielding tight.
