The Glen edges out rival BITS as cricket season resumes
AFTER a short hiatus over the festive period, cricket in Gladstone is well and truly back with players participating in normal matches and Twenty20 games at the weekend.
The Glen has been in good form since the season started and continued its standing in the competition by narrowly beating BITS in a Twenty20 final at Clinton Sports Park on Saturday.
BITS batted first and notched up 147 in 20 overs.
Notable mentions go to Terry Sawyer who hit 45, David Webber on 23 and Andrew Blake scored 26.
"The Glen played very well," Webber said.
"It was a hard-fought game. The loss was very unlucky."
The Glen's captain Michael Heymer commended BITS on their batting.
He said it was a close match with his team losing wickets where they shouldn't have.
"We made hard work of it," he said.
The Glen also won its match against Yaralla on Saturday morning.
Yaralla managed 80 runs while The Glen passed that with just five wickets down - Jason Miners getting 4-20 off four overs and Brendan Schnokecht taking three wickets.
