Brothers' close brush with Magpies

JUST 12 runs separated Emerald Brothers under-12s and Emerald Magpies team two at the weekend.

Set 141 runs for victory, the Magpies' opening batting pair of Nic Conway and Darcy Hagan did their best to give the side the early advantage in the second innings.

Both batted through the innings without the loss of a wicket, Conway finishing with a handy 36-run score and Hagan a meaty 43 runs.

However, the Magpies were no match for the eagle-eye bowling line of Ben Howard.

The Brothers' youngster bagged three wickets for the loss of just seven runs from his three overs, and whacked 24 runs with the bat.

Meanwhile, Magpies' bowler Angus Rayner did his best to keep the runs at bay, bowling out his two over spell at 0/4.
