City United overcame key absences to stay on top of the Colac district Division One table with a comfortable win over Apollo Bay.
A maiden Division One century from batsman Alex Inglis guided City to 9-204 after Sharks skipper Billy Bernet sent the Knights in after winning the toss.
City captain Sam Cardinal said the steadying third-wicket partnership between Inglis and all-rounder Mitch McGlade was key to setting up the 90-run win.
“We were two for not many, and Inglis and Mitch McGlade came in and put on a really good partnership, then Inglis went on with it after that,” he said.
“It was good for him to get a reward with that score, he’s made a lot of starts over the last couple of years.
“He’s pretty disappointed to go out when he did because he had the chance to kick-on, but you would take a hundred any day.”
Inglis wasn’t the only Colac district Division One cricketer to reach triple figures on Saturday, with Colac West teenager Will Mulgrew scoring a ton in his team’s loss to Warrion.
