Diggers' great escape

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: The batting performance by Diggers on Saturday wasn't good but it was good enough to get the win against Dorrigo.

IF CRICKET was a game of Monopoly, Diggers definitely used a get out of jail free card on Saturday.

Having made only 115 with the bat against Dorrigo, Diggers were looking down the barrel of a costly defeat before producing a remarkable display with the ball.

Dorrigo was never in the hunt from the moment the run chase began, losing a wicket in each of the first two overs before a real collapse took place.

In the 14th over Dorrigo slumped to be 7-20 and it was only a last wicket stand between Mitchell Woods and Oli Sandstrom, who had earlier taken five wickets, which gave the final scoreline some semblance of respectability.

Sawtell continued its winning ways chasing down the Coffs Colts total of 150 with 25 balls to spare.

Tomorrow night will see the final round of Twenty20 matches played.

Nana Glen will be trying to close the gap between it and the competition leading Sawtell when it faces Dorrigo while also warming up for next week's Twenty20 final.

Diggers will play against Coffs Colts.

Both matches are being played at the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park grounds.

RESULTS
Diggers 115 (O Sandstrom 5-42, N Secomb 4-15) def Dorrigo 64 (R Phoonie 3-7).
Sawtell 6-152 (T Mitchell 55, R Gallichan 37) def Coffs Colts 9-150 (P Myles 3-32, B Lewis 3-19).
