The three H's - Heymer, Harry and Hayden prove match-winners

CRICKET: The Glen were under the pump after BITS had bowled them out for 143 at Sun Valley Oval.

And it would seem the men from Boyne-Tannum were to cruise to a great win against its arch-enemy.

But enter young gun Harry Rideout and the wily Jason Seng.

The pair collected six wickets between them to help rattle BITS out for a paltry 41 and have The Glen mark itself as a genuine contender in the Frenchville Sports Club Capricorn Challenge competition.

Rideout finished with 4-18 while Seng (2-7) and Damien Levett (2-8) were the other destroyers.

Earlier in the day, The Glen captain David Heymer made a hard-earned 37 runs and Hayden Oliver provided a spark in the lower

order with 34 runs where he teamed up with Josh Lait to put on 53 runs for the ninth wicket.

Josh Finlay (2-15 from five overs) and the experienced Jason Batchelor (2-28 off eight overs) took two wickets apiece for BITS and in a day that belonged to the bowlers, The Glen's bowlers got on top as the BITS wickets went regularly.

BITS Cricket Club president Linden Finlay said his team did not capitalise on a great start in which Nathan Cobb and Tim Jackson also snared two wickets each.

"We bowled a bit funny actually, like we gave away lots of sundries, but at the same time we had them 7-80 after Josh (Finlay) cleaned up Dave Heymer," he said.

"They were 8-90 at drinks and we had them on the ropes there after 20 overs and Heymer threatened to take the game away from us when he knocked up 37 pretty quickly."

Finlay said The Glen have the ability to go all the way, but all teams have that as well.

"They pushed Gracemere last weekend and only just lost and that was without Jason Seng," he said.

"But it's a bit like us because we didn't have our captain Terry Sawyer who is overseas at the moment and we have a few other blokes to come back in."

The Glen and BITS both have home games at Sun Valley and BITS Ovals against Rockhampton Brothers and Frenchville respectively this Saturday at 10am.
