Rain fails to cool battle in A Grade cricket match
A WET pitch didn't ease the bitter battle between the Brothers and The Glen in the A-grade competition for cricketers at the weekend.
After the heavens opened up over Clinton Park on Saturday morning, the Glen stepped up to the plate, defeating the Brothers by two wickets and leaving them all out for 135.
With the Brothers taking the first batting order, it left the Glen to show off their fielding skills. Michael Heymer impressed at stumps making 42 runs for The Glen.
"We put up a good fight and it was a challenge in the wet, but we got there in the end," The Glen player Daniel Williams said.
Andrew Cirson made 48 runs for the Brothers, while Daniel Beatson notched 3/33.
Brothers captain Mal Carlyon said the boys gave it their all, but were let down in the batting.
"In short, it wasn't the easiest game to play, but we had a decent run. We did all right in the fielding but we could have done better in the batting."
Next week The Glen play Yaralla and the Brothers play the BITS.
