Lions skip­per to miss key clash

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

EAST Bel­mont needs 212 runs to se­cure a sixth-straight win.

But can the Lions do it with­out gun open­ing bats­man and skip­per Sean O’Neill?

An­drew Baars and new open­ing partner James Diery ne­go­ti­ated a tricky lit­tle pe­riod prior to stumps last week, sur­viv­ing to be 0-4 in chase of the Cats 228.

Danny Hughes was the star of the Lara bat­ting in­nings, stand­ing up in the ab­sence of brother Andy, to make a bril­liant 99 from 131 balls. He ran out of time to make a ton.
