COBDEN’S horror six-game winless streak has been sensationally snapped.
Johno Benallack’s men dismissed their batting woes to hold off in-form Noorat on Saturday, returning to the winners’ list after a near two-month absence.
Benallack paid homage to improved depth and credited it for the triumph.
“We’ve been in a bit of a slump for the last fair while, so it’s good to get a win for the morale around the team,” he said.
“It’s been a while so we were keen to get back on the winners’ list. We’ve just had a few players unavailable and getting a few back added to our depth.
“We still lost a few early wickets, but a 70-run stand at the fifth wicket gave us a bit of a platform to really build off and to launch a good score onto the board.”
The co-captain, who leads Cobden alongside Angus Uwland, said his side mapped out responsible batting as key prior to the must-win match.
Uwland smashed out a 48-run stand, while Brent Goonan managed 47 to set up a score of 8-188 at stumps.
Noorat produced a 164-run total in reply.
