Kookas captain Craig Bramble has praised his side after they broke through for their first victory of the season with a comprehensive win over The Rail.

A Zac Jurd century inspired the side to 8-323 with the bat with Bramble and Chris Leaudais combining for nine wickets to bowl their opponents out for 186.

“We thought we did pretty good last week, but things just didn’t go our way,” Bramble said. “This week we batted a little better and bowled a bit better. The most pleasing thing was our batting, Zac Jurd scored his first century in first grade.

“He’s been batting really well. He’s someone who now he knows he can make those big scores, we might see a couple more out of him this season.”

In other matches, Lake Illawarra remained unbeaten with a 132-run victory over Oak Flats, and Randall Starr led Kiama/Gerringong to victory over Shellharbour.
