Murray Staude snares hat-trick against Pigeon Ponds PIGEON Ponds bowler Murray Staude finished Wando Vale’s innings by taking the last three wickets in successive balls to snare yet another Casterton and District Cricket Association hat-trick for the 2012-13 season.

Two large transports continued on over the 40 kmh section without slowing down and one had to travel on the wrong side of the road to avoid the potholes and broken surface.
