THE combination of lots of turn and a slow outfield saw a low-scoring game as the under-16 Emerald Brothers snared their first win of the season against the Blackwater Bilbies.

Brothers won the toss and elected to bat and the lively wicket meant no batsman made any great inroads, with Trent Drake top scorer on 12 and Cory Butler and Binura Gunasinghe both on 11.

Best bowling for Blackwater came from Jayden Williams who took 3-9 and Trey Cronin 2-11, and Brothers were all out for 75.

First ball for the Blackwater innings, delivered by Aaron Brown, smashed the middle stump to dismiss opener Trey Cronin.

Second over and Josh Lewin snared a wicket, followed by a further wicket for Aaron in the third.

Blackwater never recovered from this top order collapse and no batsman was able to make double figures, despite a valiant effort by Matt Wood on nine.

THOMAS McKenzie was outstanding with bat and ball to help the under-13 Blackwater Bilbies defeat the Emerald Brothers at the weekend. The Bilbies travelled to Marist College for the match, winning the toss and electing to bat. Openers Thomas McKenzie and Davis Meadows got their team off to a flying start as McKenzie made a solid 86 and Meadows 32, as Blackwater reached the impressive figures of 4-226.

Best bowling figures for Brothers were Tye Hemel 2-26 off four overs, Jackson Williams 1-15 off four and Josh Brown 1-36 off four.

In response, Brothers were bowled out for 120 runs in the 26th over.

Isaac Dowling top scored for Brothers with 33 and was well supported by Liam Farley on 27. McKenzie produced Blackwater's best figures with 3-18.
