An unbeaten century by City United opener Cameron Wynn has set his team up for an outright victory against Raymond Terrace and the under-16 minor premiership.

Eastern Suburbs are also chasing an outright victory as the battle for the minor premiership goes down to the wire.

City are unbeaten in their six games to date to average six points on the table. Easts have played four games with two first inning wins, an outright victory and a loss to City to average 5.75.

The young Griffins could just pip City to the minor premiership on average if both teams claim outright points.

Wynn was 114 not out when City declared on 3/167 to take an 81-run lead into day two of the round 10 encounter at Robins Oval on Saturday.

His dominant innings included 16 fours and three sixes and was supported by Thomas Whale with 24.

City’s bowlers will be looking for early wickets to push for outright points after dismissing Terrace for 86 on day one.

Easts are also in a strong position to secure an outright win, bowling Kurri Weston out for 76 and posting 2/146 at stumps in reply on day one.

Cameron Pannowitz led Easts’ attack taking 4-18. Will Stoneman continued his outstanding year with 2-8 before scoring 72 at the top of the innings.

Lachlan Ballard was unbeaten on 52 and Matt Lynch had yet to score.

Northern Suburbs and Kurri Weston are guaranteed to finish third and fourth respectively.
