Comeback king Dave Elsley belts 102
DAVE Elsley vowed to help out Inglewood for one game this season and made it a masterpiece.
He hit 102 as Inglewood scored 7-333 on their home wicket to beat Allora by 167 runs.

Mitch McLennan was best with the bat for Allora with 33 in a score of 166.
Shaw was again on line with the ball, taking 3-14 off four overs, while Reilly capped a great game with 2-25 off four overs.
