Colts are the 2016/17 Bunbury and Districts Cricket Association Twenty20 champions after a dominant display on Sunday against Hay Park.

Winning the toss and electing to bat, the Redbacks dropped regular wickets which stopped them from building enough momentum to post a competitive score.

Chris Waddingham (11) started well while Chris McMillan (21), Jono Whitney (11) and Michael Tassone (19) chimed in with runs. But the defending champions really needed one of them to go on and turn that start into something more.  

Jake Boyle’s performance with the ball for Colts set his side up well with 4/15 from four overs.

Father and son pair Murray and Jayden Goodwin opened the batting for Colts and it was the younger who looked dominant early, posting 42. 

His dad was caught on 19 and the middle order struggled to make starts. Stephen Green (14 not out) and Joe Barringham (9 not out) made the target with three balls to spare and five wickets in hand.

Colts won their place in the grand final with an easy semi-final victory over Eaton earlier in the day. 

Winning the toss and sending Eaton into bat, the Colts bowlers went through the Beavers quickly, capturing all 10 wickets for just 62 runs. 

Opener James Hillery was the only player to make double figures. In fact, he made half his team’s total with 31. Colt’s 10 extras was the next best score on the card.

Jack Wilson was best with the ball taking three wickets while Joe Barningham, Jake Boyle and Cruize Ciallella both took two. 

The run chase was quick and easy for Colts with Ciallella caught for five, leaving Jayden Goodwin (25 not out) and Nick Barr (33 not out) to finish the job.

Hay Park’s place in the grand final came courtesy of a semi-final win over Dalyellup Beach.

The Redbacks chose to bat first and posted 6/109 from their 20 overs with Michael Tassone finished 43 not out.

The game went down to the final ball with Dalyellup Beach falling one run short despite the best efforts of Murray Tennent-Brown (29 not out), Scott Harber (18) and Mitchell Boyle (15).

Colts also defeated Hay Park in the second grade grand final. Batting first, the Redbacks posted 8/116 with Stuart Hayward and Alex Jerrard both making 32. 

Colts lost skipper Jaysen Miguel (2) early but fellow opener Dylan Bairstow (45 not out) set the side up well. With help from Wayne Davis (34) and Timothy Stewart (23 not out) the Colts side won by seven wickets. 

Donnybrook won the third grade final over Marist.
