Cowra reclaimed the Grinsted Cup with a 50-run win over Young on Sunday.
Grenfell captain Phil Simpson’s century along with his Canowindra counterpart Brendan Traves’ six-wicket haul were the highlights of a match where bat dominated ball for the most part.
An opening stand of 177 between Phil Simpson (121) and Cowra captain Conor Crook (72) saw the visitors break the back of the Young attack.
Small cameos by Cowra’s middle order at roughly equal to a run a ball kept the score ticking over to a very defendable 5-286 from their 50 overs.
Young’s Brett Humphreys toiled hard returning 3-67 from his 12 overs.
In reply, Young’s chase got off to the worst possible start when Grenfell quick Michael Millar removed the dangerous Josh Platt with no score on the board.
Josh Carmody (85), Ben Allan (35) and Luke Cosgrove (58) righted the ship and the home side were well in contention at 4-197.
However, Carmody’s wicket when the score was 197 triggered a stunning collapse which included three batsman returning to the sheds with 227 on the board to be all out for 236, 50 runs short of the target.
Traves was rewarded for a workhorse display with 6-70 from his 19 overs.
