A strong batting performance led by Karl Bailey (30), Josh Grieving (26) and Christian Welch (24) was the platform for Brothers strong win.

In reply, Calliope battled hard with John Stewart making 15, but The Glen's tight bowling proved to be the difference.
The Glen's David Heymer con-tinued his fine season, scoring the round's highest innings of 41 not out in his team's under-13/14 win over Brothers, while BITS had a team effort to thank in their win over a gallant Yaralla in the other clash of the round.
