Sunbury United has returned to the winners’ list and stayed in the hunt for a top two spot in Gisborne and District Cricket Association B grade.

Having dropped its past two games and slipping to third, United responded in a big way against bottom side Ashfield.

Defending the 8-313 it made on day one, United bowled Ashfield out for 104, with Ashfield skipper Ryan Pretty top scoring with 29.

Leif Louwen-Skovdam took 6-19 for United.

Sent back in, Ashfield was 0-20 when the game ended.

The win wasn’t enough for United to move back into the top two, with Lancefield and Wallan both getting wins.

Lancefield moved to the top of the table, with an outright win against Macedon. Having already claimed first-innings points on day one, the Tigers were keen to take full advantage.
