Sunshine has formed a two-team breakaway with Newport-Digman at the top of the Victorian Turf Cricket Association division 2 ladder.

It is too early to declare the division as a two-horse race, but these two sides will take some catching in the second half of the season.

The Crows are top of the league with 33 points, while Newport-Digman is just three points back.

The next best side is St Andrews Pascoe Vale, which is 15 points in arrears of the Crows.

Sunshine kept its flawless record intact with victories in both games on a double-header weekend.

The Crows had a commanding 72-run win over Kingsville on Saturday and followed up with a cruisy six-wicket victory over Keilor Park on Sunday.

Asela Aluthge scored 61 and Ruwan Jayaweera took 5-15 to be the stars in Sunshine’s win over Kingsville, while Altamash Zaheer’s four wickets were crucial in the drubbing of Keilor Park.

Meanwhile, it was a tough weekend for Keilor and Sunshine United in senior division.

Both sides lost their games on Saturday and then had their games on Sunday washed out. They are both a game outside the top four.
