Openers set up win
AN outstanding partnership by Brothers batsmen John Rideout and Shaun McMahon secured Saturday's match against Yaralla at Clinton Oval.
The pair scored 177 runs between them and the team's captain/coach Mal Carlyon said it gave the team the boost it needed.
"It was a much better effort than last week," he said.
"And that partnership was a great start for us.
"John Rideout did well and it's his first full A-grade season. He's only about 18 years old - he's a brilliant inclusion."
Brothers' bowling line-up also did them proud.
Damien Beatson took three wickets for 39 runs and Tyler Sunderland took two for 35.
"Tyler is a junior coming through too," Carlyon said.
"He's good to have - it's promising for the future.
"It was a much better team effort than last week - our fielding and our bowling was better."
Yaralla finished all out for 197.
The Glen secured a win against BITS on Saturday after putting 307 runs on the board.
Captain Dan Williams said the "excellent" display of batting gave them a good start.
"David Heymer got his first A-grade 100 which was good and then the middle order kept us going," he said.
"To get 307 off 40 overs was just brilliant.
"Then Robbie Woof and I took three wickets a piece."
But Williams said fielding would be the focus of this week's training session.
"A few easy chances got away from us," he said.
"We've really got to work on it," he said.
