Top bowlers dismantle Glen who face first loss for season
THE Glen suffered its first loss of the season at the hands of Yaralla on Saturday.
Yaralla scored 9-178 after 50 overs with The Glen making just 9-135.
Yaralla player Michael Slatter said the fielders and bowlers did really well.
"Every single bowler did their part," Slatter said.
"That's what got us there in the end."
The fielders backed up the strong showing which Slatter said helped.
"We didn't drop any catches," he said.
Although he said the team would have liked to get that last wicket from The Glen, Yaralla was happy with the performance.
The Glen captain Michael Heymer agreed that Yaralla's bowlers won the day.
"Their two opening bowlers bowled really well," Heymer said.
Adding to The Glen's woes was the loss of four or five players, many of who were bowlers.
As for the end of The Glen's undefeated streak, Heymer wasn't too worried.
"It was a loss that was coming," he said.
Now Heymer's attention has turned to the next round.
"We have got a big game next week against BITS.
"We've got to try and get back in to the winner's circle."
In the weekend's other A-grade match, BITS beat Brothers by seven wickets.
Brothers batted first and were all out for 207 after 48 overs. BITS made 3-208 in 41 overs.
"It was a good game," Brothers captain Malcolm Carlyon said.
"It was a big improvement from our blokes."
He said Brothers were still looking to improve over the rest of the season.
"We'll hold our heads up and try our hardest."
