We used Eight bowlers with Jock Donnellan (3/21) and Dan Day (3/31) picking up a bag of three each ably supported by Sticks (1/19) and Blackie (1/13). Tantsis bowled well without luck, Damo Howsam picked up 1, Besaer got smashed and Borts bowled his two overs for the year.

EAGLES HAVE WINGS CLIPPED
For the second consecutive week we had the good fortune of winning the toss allowing the opportunity for our batsman to face the full 40 overs. Dinesh Jakar & Cam Amos opened up & put on 49 in 14 overs until Cam was out bowled for 11. Mick Lowry edged through to the keeper for 1. Michael Gough joined Dinesh & quickly added 67 runs for the 4th wicket partnership until Dinesh was dismissed for a well-compiled 89. Phil Spinella joined Goughie in the middle but couldn’t seem to find any batting form & held out for 25. The lower order tail didn’t seem to fire as we have done throughout the season so far leaving us to defend 191 on the small ground.
