SOUTH COAST CRICKET
Beaten first-round clubs The Rail, Kiama and Kookas still have a chance of snatching upset wins in this afternoon's second day of round two.
Kiama appear best-placed to cause a boilover after they made 9-241 on the first day against Oak Flats at Geoff Shaw Oval.
Jan Haubruck (72) made his maiden half-century for Kiama with support from Nathan Barr (40) and Eric Davies (45), which means Oak Flats face a batting test for the second straight game.
Oak Flats made 6-280 in their opening round game against Lake Illawarra and, with a strong batting line-up, will fancy taking the 14 first innings points.
Senior Kiama player Dan Reilly said his side can cause an upset.
"If conditions are the same for both teams then the Rats will bat on but we've given ourselves a chance," he said.
Meanwhile, Kookas responded to a thrashing by Shellharbour in round one by restricting premiers Lake Illawarra to 8-192 (declared) at Oakleigh Park.
Kookas resume at 2-33 with Mick Perry unbeaten on 16.
At Tom Willoughby Oval, The Rail held Shellharbour to 203 on day one and resume at 1-34.
If The Rail top order can bat well they can win.
Gerringong-Jamberoo are chasing Albion Park's 7-288 at Keith Grey Oval.
Zac Jurd (62 not out), Graeme Smith (56) and Hayden McKay (49) led the way for Park.
