Shellharbour's Ken Nguyen took a hat-trick in his first grade debut and Brynley Richards smashed an unbeaten century, but Gerringong-Jamberoo still claimed first innings points in a dramatic South Coast cricket clash at Kevin Walsh Oval.
Just two of the four South Coast games survived Friday's massive storm while all Illawarra first grade was washed out on Saturday.
Oak Flats beat Albion Park in the other round-two match, with the team bowling first in both games dismissing their opponent cheaply and taking first innings points.
On a soft track at Geoff Shaw Oval, Oak Flats rolled Albion Park for 96, with Joel Gray taking 3-9 for the Rats, and Andrew Povey claiming 2-7.
Oak Flats passed the target with eight wickets in hand, and in the push for second innings bonus points, the Park finished at 5-61.
"It was good to bowl first and only have to chase a small total," Oak Flats skipper Ryan Chatterton said.
But it was the circumstances behind Gerringong-Jamberoo Jets' win over Shellharbour which produced two of the most stunning performances of the season - both on the losing team.
On a wet pitch, Shellharbour were rolled for just 56, with Scott Adams outstanding taking 5-32 for the Jets, who took the 14 innings points with the loss of just three wickets.
Shellharbour debutant Nguyen (3-11) took all three wickets as a hat-trick, bowling Jets skipper David Reid with the hat-trick ball.
Then Shellharbour smashed 2-240 off 33 overs in their second dig, with Richards backing up his 97 against Warilla in round one, with a punishing unbeaten 107. Shellharbour opener James Keywood made 77.
"We didn't win but I think we sent out a message to the rest of the competition," Shellharbour coach Dave Richards said.
Shellharbour picked up three bonus points and skipper Ben Mitchell admitted to mixed feelings after an up-and-down day.
"We're gutted to have lost but rapt with the way we fought back," Mitchell said.
The other two games - Warilla vs Lake Illawarra and Kiama vs The Rail - were washed out on day two.
All four clubs collected seven points for a draw,
This Saturday both the Illawarra and South Coast competitions have a round of one-day matches.
