HILL TOP Gold remain on top of the third grade ladder after their ninth straight win on Saturday.
They defeated Bundanoon, who were the last team to beat them, by 52 runs at Boronia Park.
Batting first, Hill Top posted a total of 125.
Skipper Jamie Stevenson scored 50 and was well supported by Rory Holdsworth (43).
With a slow outfield, Stevenson said 125 was worth more runs, probably about the 200 mark.
Adam Stephens picked up 2-16, while Chris Packer cleaned up the tail to finish with figures of 4-4.
“It was a pretty good win. We could have batted a little bit better though,” Stevenson said.
While Hill Top have gone through the competition almost undefeated before, Stevenson said they could be in for a tough finals campaign.
“We’ll see how we go in the finals. There’s a lot of good players that can win games for them (other teams).”
He said Bundanoon were definite contenders sitting in second spot on the ladder.
“Bundanoon have a good team. They’ve got some good players and I don’t think they batted as well as they could have (on Saturday).”
