Niven Dovey, went on to post the sixth the Baywide premier cricket century of the season, as he smacked 105 runs at a tad better than a run a ball. His innings contained seventeen 4's and one six, with Tauranga Boys requiring just 14 runs when he was removed. 

Long-time Carrus Mount Maunganui bowler Dale Swan, wrote his name into Baywide cricket history, when took eight wickets in his teams dramatic 81 run win over arch-rivals Element IMF Cadets in round five.

Mount Maunganui batted first in the Battle of the Bridge game and were removed for 200 in the 48th over. Mount newcomer Tim Tomlinson, who previously played premier cricket in the City of Sails, top scored with 62 runs with Peter Drysdale chipping in with 29. Mayura Galappaththi was the best of the Cadets bowling attack returning 3/21.

Cadets made a solid start to their reply at 42 for the loss of two wickets. Enter the Mount Maunganui skipper, who wears his 200 premier game cap with absolute pride, then proceeding to destroy the Cadets innings. Four LBW decisions, two balls that spread the stumps and a caught and bowled along with a catch picked out by Tony Goodin, resulted in Cadets being dismissed for 119. The last Baywide eight wicket bag was taken by Black Cap Trent Boult in February 2013 returning figures of 8/37.

For the second October in a row, Brett Hampton gave a master-class in batting as he powered Eves Realty Greerton to victory against Element IMF Cadets, in a Bay of Plenty Cup game on Saturday (12 October 2019), in a rain shortened match reduced to 26 overs per side.

Cadets had early success grabbing their first wicket with the second ball of the game. Greerton new recruit Bruce Kerr then took control belting 65 runs off 37 balls. Coming in at four, Hampton took aim on the boundary ropes to blast 119 off just 48 balls, in a whirlwind innings that produced sixteen 6's.
