The Glen target too far for BITS cricket team
BITS fell agonisingly short in their run chase against the Glen on Saturday.
Chasing the Glen's first inning's score of 128, BITS was cleaned up for 122. Jason Seng tore the heart out of the visitors with five wickets.
Glen captain Michael Heymer said it had been an even bowling performance that prevented BITS from reeling in the target.
Earlier, Luke Marsh top scored with 38 as the Glen compiled a modest total.
But it was a day when bowlers dominated.
BITS' bowlers Dan Hawkins (3-35) and Terry Sawyer (3-18) comdined to restrict the Glen batsmen. BITS would have considered themselves a strong chance of getting the 128 required for victory but it wasn't to be, despite the best efforts of Lucas Hall (42) and Josh Walters (31).
Heymer said the game was won in the second half of the day as the Glen defended.
"Everyone who dug in and bowled well, that's what won us the game," he said.
But BITS president Nev Judd said his boys could win another flag, with the right motivation.
