Buangor will carry plenty of confidence into its two-day clash against Pomonal starting on Saturday. 

The reigning premiers recorded their first victory of the season in emphatic style last weekend, claiming all 10 points in an outright victory over Halls Gap.

Buangor captain Chris Jerram said he was happy just to be on the winners list.

“Our first win being an outright puts our season back on track,” he said.

“We just wanted the six points, but some solid individual performances helped us get the outright win.”

Jacob Bates was the standout, notching an unbeaten score of 150, which Jerram believes would have been larger had he not declared.

“I think Jacob could have gone on to make a huge score as he was batting so well, but he knew it was the team thing to declare and go for the outright,” Jerram said.

It will be a tough match for Buangor, with Pomonal finding form with the bat against the impressive bowling lineup of Swifts-Great Western in round three.

Jerram said he is confident his team can overcome his opponents. 

“They has a solid bowling attack and a pretty good top order so we are definitely cautious,” he said. “We are confident in our abilities though. At home we tend to bat well and we get back Jack Ganley who was in good form in B Grade last weekend.”
