Cobram has won the Bottom Pub one-day shield for the first time by easily defeating Barooga on Saturday at Cobram Showgrounds.
In front of a great crowd, Barooga won the toss and decided to bat first. After a steady start from Barooga, the game changed when James Daniel was introduced into the attack.
The Cobram spinner took 5-19 from his nine overs and allowed Cobram to get right on top of Barooga, who were bowled out in the 38th over for 106.
Fellow spinner Shaun Downie also bowled a great spell, taking 2-5 from 5.1 overs.
Shane Healy and Manuele Artavilla were the other wicket takers for Cobram.
Tom Butler top-scored for Barooga with 34 runs.
Cobram then took total control of the game thanks to a great all-round performance from Daniel.
He was 54 not out when Cobram passed Barooga’s score in the 22nd over.
Downie (17) and Matt Haddrell (31) were the only players to lose their wickets for Cobram, while Artavilla (4 not out) hit the winning runs.
Brenton Louden and Mitch Richmann were the only wicket takers for Barooga.
