Colac teenager Cullan Spence, 63 runs, led the way with the bat, with support from team captain Dylan Flanigan, 48, and Colac West’s Clay Mulgrew, 43.

West’s Deakin Carmichael and Stoneyford’s James Menzies and Jesse Williamson took took two wickets each.

The CDCA squad has a handful of adult senior players in its team, with the rest of the side made up of the best teenagers in the CDCA.
Flanigan said the whole team was excited at the prospect of playing finals.

“Where the team came from last year, they were one loss and three wins, it’s interesting to see how we keep going,” he said before yesterday’s clash.

“Everyone is eyeing off another game on Friday.”
