Maryborough captain Corey Taylor cuts for more runs during his remarkable 146-run innings against Carisbrook on Saturday.

Maryborough captain Corey Taylor cuts for more runs during his remarkable 146-run innings against Carisbrook on Saturday.

Maryborough’s Corey Taylor has re-written the Maryborough District Cricket Association’s history books and potentially elevated his side into the 2016-17 one-day grand final with a sparkling century.

Playing on Saturday in what was scheduled to be the first of the weekend’s double headers before play was largely abandoned across the league on Sunday due to rain, Taylor blasted his way to a score of 146 as the Owls’ trampled Carisbrook by 164 runs.

The Maryborough skipper’s score is the highest A grade individual score since the MDCA introduced the separate one-day ladder and grand final in the 2013-14 season, with the win launching Maryborough to the top of the MDCA ladder at the close of the one-day rounds.

It is now highly likely that the Owls will face the second-placed Clunes in the short-form season decider on December 18, after MDCA president Mark Allen said it was unlikely the league would be able to reschedule the abandoned round one matches that were originally hoped to be played at a later date.
