Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

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.
