Bathurst showed no mercy on their way to a crushing 208 run win against Lithgow, in the Mitchell Cricket Council under 16s competition.
The first three batsmen were in devastating form, as Bathurst went out to bat first.
Nick Broes scored 88, Bailey Brien hit 41 and Sam Hall was out after 84 runs.
Bathurst posted a score of 8-281 off 50 overs, before Lithgow came out to bat at the Tony Luchetti No 1 Oval.
Bathurst coach Shane Broes was pleased with the result from his team.
“We set a challenge of making the 50 overs and we got it,” Broes said.
“We only managed 215 against Blue Mountains, so we knuckled down and put in a strong performance [against Lithgow].”
“Our opening bowlers done really well.”
Brenden Pallier took 2-18 off five overs, but it was Hall who dominated with the ball.
Hall took an impressive 3-15 off 10 overs, playing his part in having Lithgow dismissed for 73 off 34.1 overs.
Hugh Parsons performed well the ball, taking 2-8 off 5 overs.
Lithgow have struggled this season and remain winless.
“Lithgow are a developing side, but they’re getting better,” Broes said.
The competition will now take a break during December and January, with Bathurst to host Orange in their next game.
The game will be at Morse Park 1, on February 12, 2017.
Broes said the match will be crucial, come the end of the season.
The winner of the match next year, will ultimately be in pole position to host the final on March 5.
