Court House smashed their way into the new year, winning both of their Twenty20 clashes when the competition resumed on the weekend.
On Friday night they upset competition leaders Albion, before being given a bit of a scare against Mornington on Saturday. Chasing Court Houses' imposing 9-145, Mornington fell just short, finishing 4-138.
"It got a bit closer than everyone sort of thought," Court House allrounder Sam Doubleday conceded.
Justin Carter set the run chase up with a brilliant half-century, the opener smacking six fours and two sixes en route to 51 off 48.
Doubleday said Carter batted well. "He waited for a ball in his zone," he said.
Ben Hennessy also hit 25 and James Edmunds 27.
Earlier Jarod Adams had given Court House a good platform with 42 at the top of the order.
Joining the club this season, Doubleday said he has been a handy pick-up.
Doubleday, himself, also chipped in with 22, and with Adams put on 64 for the second wicket, setting it up for skipper Farran Lamb to come in blast 39 from 25 balls.
Lamb was also amongst the runs on Friday night, hitting 26 as they posted 4-118, Isaac Harris top-scoring with 38no. They then restricted Albion to 3-107 after bogging them down early.
Ben Irwin was miserly, his four overs only going for six runs while Lamb finished with 1-13 from his four.
Albion were looking a bit shaky at 2-27 but James Mack (28no) and Damien Baldwin (26no) got them back into the game..
Doubleday said it was a good way to start the year.
"It was pretty good to come away with a couple of wins," he said.
Albion bounced back with a vengeance on Saturday, Mark Ewington leading the charge as they ripped through Kookaburras for just 57.
Only two Kookaburras batsman reached double figures as Ewington claimed four wickets, and Ash White, James Mack and Jonathan Crowe two apiece.
Albion then chased the runs down in 13 overs with Ryan Cooper belting 31 off 26.
Kookaburras had on Friday night chased down Mornington's 8-94 inside 14 overs, with Matt Agonstino cracking an unbeaten 33-off 37, and Cameron Milne 41 from 37.
Marcus Hayne top-scored for Mornington with 29 from 35.
His dismissal (run out by Bowe Coward) really turned the game with Mornington losing 6-30.
