Nana Glen fights back with ball

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - SPORT -

A FIERY late spell from open­ing bowler Josh Bartlett has put Nana Glen in a strong po­si­tion.

Hav­ing been sent in at Richard­son Park in the grand fi­nal re­play against Sawtell, Nana Glen posted a com­pet­i­tive but be­low par 172.

Justin Saker and Joel Scurr made 48 while three wick­ets from Tim Wels­ford made him the pick of the Sawtell bowlers.

Sawtell was ex­pected to make a solid start to its chase but Bartlett caused car­nage with the new ball.

Bartlett took four wick­ets in a fiery open­ing spell that’s left Sawtell reel­ing at 5-46, still need­ing an­other 127 runs for vic­tory when play re­sumes on Satur­day.

Coffs Colts are within touch­ing dis­tance of their first win of the sea­son.

The Colts sent Dorrigo in and de­spite a half-cen­tury by Luke Beau­mont, Dorrigo could only a muster a to­tal of 128.

Most of the dam­age with the ball was done by Ai­den Statham, who took four wick­ets while 15-year-old spin­ner Ben Martin showed prom­ise with three dis­missals of his own.

In re­ply Colts al­most reached the tar­get be­fore the close of play with an un­beaten 56 by Luke Cox and some solid sup­port from Kyle Gallen see­ing the vis­i­tors reach 3-116.

WELL BOWLED: Josh Bartlett claimed four late wick­ets to put Nana Glen in a strong po­si­tion.
