Broomehill will head into the mid-season break in a commanding spot after stretching their winning streak to seven games on Saturday.

With one round to play in the Great Southern Cricket Association before their harvest break, Broomehill have the bye this Saturday but sit 13 points clear on top heading into the second half of the season.

Broomehill defeated Wanderers by six wickets in round eight at Quartermaine Oval to remain undefeated while Wanderers suffered their second straight loss.

Wanderers were restricted to just 84 batting first before Broomehill chased down their total for the loss of four wickets.

It wasn’t a great start for Wanderers, losing Toby Quartermaine without scoring and then star opener Kyle Sinclair before they had made it to 10.

Josh Pinney became Sam Richardson’s second scalp and then Brock Green was removed soon after for 17.

Ricky Marris and Tyrone Pinney added 21 together but the latter was removed for 15 and Marris departed not long after as they crumbled to 6-54.

Peter Robertson (13) added some late runs but Wanderers lost 4-15 to be bowled out in the 44th over.

Lewis Barritt snared 3-15 off nine overs, including six maidens, and was well supported by Richardson (2-12), Jack Kennedy (2-16) and Jack Batchelor (2-17).

Batchelor and Steve Irvine put on 26 for the opening stand in the run chase before the latter was caught for 13 and despite Broomehill losing 3-20 at one stage they got home in the 26th over.

Barritt finished not out on 16 and Batchelor added 18 at the top of the order as they finished on 4-88.

Robertson snared 2-26 for Wanderers.
