St Pat's Old Boys will have to wait to get its revenge on Orange City, after Bathurst Orange District Cricket was washed-out once again.
There were three games scheduled for Bathurst on Saturday, while another two in Orange, but after considerable rainfall in both cities in the lead-up to the opening day of the round five fixtures, all five matches were called-off on Friday afternoon.
Saturday was meant to be the first day of two consecutive two-day matches, but all five matches will now revert to one-day matches.
Saints were meant to clash with Orange City in a grand final rematch at George Park 1 but will have to wait until next Saturday for the big game.
St Pat's skipper Adam Ryan said it's disappointing he and his teammates won't be able to play, but he's hoping play can get underway next Saturday.
"We were looking forward to that match and it's a bit weird because we've had a game in the past few years whether it's Bonnor Cup or the weekend cricket or both that has been washed out," he said.
"It's an odd pattern where we've sometimes missed out on playing them until the finals. It's also frustrating because it would've been a grand final rematch."
Next week's weather doesn't look too promising either, so all cricketers in Bathurst and Orange will have their fingers crossed that games won't be cancelled next week too.
In other matches, Centrals were meant to host Centennials Bulls at Riawena Oval, Cavaliers and CYMS were going to clash in a local derby at Wade Park, Bathurst City would tackle ORC at Morse Park 1 and City Colts would host Rugby Union at Loco Oval.
All matches will be one-dayers that will get underway next Saturday.
It's the third round this year that has been washed out because of weather - with round two and round three completely scrapped - with above average rain consistently falling in both Bathurst and Orange throughout spring.
Above average rainfall has been consistent right across NSW in recent months, with the Bureau of Meteorology confirming La Nina for this summer.
