Sea­son all over for Bright af­ter heavy loss

Alpine Observer - - Sport - By JUSTIN JEN­VEY

BRIGHT has ended its sea­son with an im­proved bat­ting per­for­mance on the sec­ond day of their fi­nal round match against Greta.

Af­ter fi­nally dis­miss­ing the Blues for a mam­moth 319 the Wan­der­ers avoided out­right de­feat by pro­duc­ing one of their best bat­ting per­for­mances in re­cent weeks.

The home side fin­ished the match on 4/190 in their sec­ond in­nings with Sea­mus Phillips and Dy­lan Bur­sill blast­ing the Greta bowlers to all parts of Pi­o­neer Park.

The pair brought up the team’s 100 in just 16 overs and quickly moved the score along to 159 be­fore Phillips was out at­tempt­ing to clear the bound­ary, two runs short of his cen­tury.

The ag­gres­sive righthander smashed 19 fours in his in­nings of 98 while Bur­sill re­tired on 55 be­fore young­ster Harry Jami­son got some qual­ity time at the crease with an un­beaten 15.

Af­ter fin­ish­ing in the top four in each of the past three sea­sons Bright will miss this year’s fi­nals series af­ter end­ing the year on the bot­tom of the A re­serve ladder hav­ing failed to win a match af­ter Christ­mas.
