Terang completed its maximum 35 overs with 9-91 before bowling Cobden out for the same total in the 34th over.

As Cobden finished on top of the ladder, it was awarded the 2011-12 colts’ crown.

“It was a fantastic game played in great spirits,” victorious coach Peter Rock said.

“We thought it was going to be close, but not that close. It went right down to the wire.”

Terang won the toss and elected to bat at Camperdown Turf.

Liam Balcombe produced a match-high 31, while Brady Kew contributed 20 and Jarrod Loader 14 not-out.

Cobden off-spinner Jackson Rock took three wickets for nine and under 13 left-arm bowler Josh Hickey claimed 2-16.

In reply, Cobden’s Jake Reed managed 17, Jackson Rock 18, Jonothan Benallack 14 and Luke Pekin 12.

Balcombe snatched three wickets for 13, Loader 2-22 and under 13 youngster Tyson Hay 2-12, while Lewis Kew took 2-2 off one over.

Terang’s Grace Lee bowled Cobden’s Lucy Fagan for the last wicket of the match, dismissing the minor premier for 91 in the 34th over. But as Terang finished third on the south colts’ ladder, it had to settle for runner-up.

Rock said his group showed a lot of commitment to the cause throughout the season, practising twice a week.
