A new-look Border-Tarawera remain undefeated after three rounds of the Goondiwindi 2019-20 cricket competition.

Last season they only won one game.

It's a big turn around for the Club and is a positive step for Goondiwindi cricket.

However while they pulled off a big win against All Whites it was the bowling heroics of Dan Gall which had everyone talking.

The Railways' allrounder almost won them the unwinnable match on Saturday.

Railways batted first against Yagaburne and were put to the sword after evergreen Jamie Mettam took 4-13.

Brendan Rice, who was only called into the team on Saturday finished them off taking 3-17.

Railways had only made 71.

It should have been a walk in the park but Gall soon had Yagaburne look for a savior.

Gall ripped the Yagaburne lineup apart 7-12.

They were in a spin 7-36 which is when Jamie Mettam stepped up, this time with the bat.

He made 16 while Tom Jobling (18) joined him to steer them home.

In other matches Yetman were too good for Macintyre but only just and that was despite a ton from Tegan McMillan (104).

Macintyre batted first and made 195 thanks to McKanah Gibson, 74, and Turner, 51.

Munsie, 2-11 and White, 3-34, were the pick of the bowlers,

But after cruising to 3-150 due to the McMillan ton, the wheels fell off.

Hayden Everingham picked up two quick wickets and Yetman were suddenly in trouble. Well they were until Sam Dight, having his best start to a season for about a century, knuckled down guiding Yetman to victory with 46 not out.

Three games in and he's yet to lose his wicket.

Yetman passed Macintyre with eight down. Everingham finished with 2-27 as did Phil Fairbanks.

Simon "Tangles" Walker led Boomi to victory making 107. Inglewood batted first making 7-175. Frankel, 34, and West, 35 not out, did the bulk of the scoring while Hickson, 4-33, was Boomi's best with the ball. In reply Walker led the charge well supported by Hickson with 57 not out.
