Under 16 underdog Moama White was crowned Goulburn Murray Cricket winners thanks to a dominant performance against Echuca on Saturday.
Sent in to bowl by Echuca, White was led brilliantly by its spin brigade on the way to dismissing the reigning premier for a lowly total of 48.
Off-spinner Jayden Dixon (4/14) and leg-spinner Alistair McCann (3/7) were unforgiving, demolishing Echuca’s middle and lower order.
Echuca opener Harry Rippon played a lone hand for his 18, helping his side to 3/39 before he was run out by Sam McHale.
Following Rippon’s dismissal, Echuca experienced a dramatic batting collapse, losing seven wickets for nine runs.
Moama White coach Stuart McGregor praised the depth of his bowling attack.
‘‘The feeling around the playing group in the last month has been exceptional, it put pressure on everyone to perform,’’ he said.
‘‘Our two strike bowlers bowled well today and then when your next three bowlers can come in and take as many wickets as they did
In reply, White showed plenty of composure with openers Dixon (18) and Jack McHale (7) providing a solid start before an unbeaten knock of 12 from Clay McGregor guided the team home.
‘‘Jayden (Dixon) was the backbone,’’ coach McGregor said.
‘‘Our young keeper Jack McHale was exceptional in behind the stumps and he stuck around with Jayden, then Clay (McGregor) finished it off.
‘‘They (Echuca) bowled 12 extras which didn’t help their cause.’’
Echuca’s Max Scales (1/15) and Mitch Frew (1/4) were Echuca’s best bowlers.
Irony was attached to Moama White’s win.
Undefeated throughout the 2012-13 season, Moama White was defeated by Echuca in the grand final.
Yesterday, the tide turned and it was the undefeated Echuca which was on the end of a grand final loss.
