The 2017-18 version of Gulgong cricket has been the Goolma show.

In its tenth win of the season, the powerhouse squad needed just 13 overs to chase down the total of 89 that was put forward by Bowlers.

A big reason the total was so manageable was the work of Goolma’s bowlers in Damian Doherty (3/20), Ashley Honeysett (3/31) and Will Redfern (3/20).

The trio prevented all but one Bowlers batsman eclipsing the 20-run mark but they weren’t able to stifle David Lumsden (49 not out).

Once the second innings got underway, Jason Warner (17) helped his side get off to a respectable start, before Darrell McGrath (2/32) got the first of his two scalps on the day.

Greg Reid (1/32) dismissed Tom Doherty (6) not long after, giving Bowlers are big chunk of hope in the early stages of the afternoon.

Hayden Cox (21) dealt that hope a huge blow before Will Redfern (37 not out) obliterated it, seeing Goolma stroll to its tenth win of the season.

Sunday’s second match between Gulgong RSL and Coolah was abandoned, seeing the sides settle for a draw.

Ladder after round 19: Goolma 117, Centennnial  111, Gulgong RSL 103, Coolah  91, Bowlers 85.
