GALLERY: The Glen secures a finals spot as bats fire

CRICKET: Half centuries to The Glen captain David Heymer and Jason Seng steered their team to a six-wicket win against Cap Coast at Sun Valley.

The experienced pair put on 117 runs as The Glen chased down Cap Coast's total of 166 in just 21.3 overs.

Heymer produced another skipper's knock with 76 while Seng made 59 after The Glen lost the early wicket of Liam Kirk for three.

The win means The Glen will take on Gracemere in Rockhampton this Saturday with the winner then to play Frenchville in the grand final the following day.

Heymer said some self-belief has been restored with the bat and it's something that has been focussed on.

"We have been bowling pretty well, but haven't been going out and backing ourselves with the bat so it was good to go out there do bat well and do what we talked about doing," he said.

Earlier in the day, young left-arm quick Harry Rideout snared three wickets which included the scalps of Asher Colley (seven) and Coast's highest run-getter Dillon West for 41.

Rideout finished with the figures of 3-30 off 7.2 overs while Heymer topped off a great all-round game with 3-33 from eight overs.

Opening bowler Damien Levett chipped in with 2-26 from six overs and removed openers Joshua Sinnamon for five and Shaun Gilvear for 18.

Heymer said Rideout has been a great addition to the team and he will play an important role on Saturday.

"Harry has been really good all season and I think the team should be pretty strong for the game against Gracemere," he said.

Meanwhile there was no game in the other Gladstone-related game to finish off the minor round.

BITS beat Rockhampton Brothers without a ball being bowled because Brothers were forced to forfeit.

It means the young BITS side has finished off the season with back-to-back wins and it had a solid back half of the season.

The Terry Sawyer-captained team will look forward to continue that second-half momentum into next season.
