Bowlers keep team in top spot
IN THE battle between the top two teams in the Bundaberg Division 1/2 Premiership, Brothers 1 have remained in first after a 36-run win over Norths at Salter Oval.
Batting first, Brothers 1 made 203 after vital knocks in the middle of the order from Chris Anderson and Ash Helmore.
Coming in at 2/37 Anderson and Helmore top scored with 41 runs each as they combined with Ben Howard to post a competitive total.
In reply Norths started well as they put on 50 for the opening partnership, with Blyton Pendergast and Todd Sommerfeld making 21 and 33 respectively.
Once wickets started to fall though, Norths struggled in the chase, and were all out for 167.
Brothers 1 captain Jarrod Laycock took 4/30 as he starred with the ball.
Fellow player David Boge said their batting performance could have been a little better.
“It was good for the younger players in our team to get the runs when we batted first,” he said.
“We would have liked more runs obviously but 203 was a good total.”
He added the bowlers helped the team to win.
“Our bowlers did a good job and we knew once we got to the middle of their line-up we would get a run going,” he said.
In the other match Past Highs won by seven wickets over Brothers 2.
In the final match ATW 1 won on forfeit against ATW 2 after the Waves struggled to fill both sides.
