Mildura Settlers have broken through with a much needed win at Irymple in the Sports News Sunraysia Cricket First division game yesterday.
Settlers were always going to be in the game with Richy Wyld bowling 21 overs, 11 Maidens and 1 for 22 to keep Setts in the game with some great spin bowling.

Irymple Captain Jordan Payne and Matthew Button battled well for 50 to Payne and Button 42 and Daniel Coughlan with 22 down the order gave the Swallows some hope but they fell 5 runs short.
