Sliding Sam's three-wicket haul

BLACKWATER will look for marked improvement next week after they were bowled out for a disastrous 53 runs against Springsure on the weekend.

The first innings total left a lot to be desired and offered easy pickings for Springsure's top order to blast through for the loss of just two wickets.

"We had a shocker, there's no doubt about that," Blackwater bowler Stewart Harris said.

Springsure bowler Sam Thomasson held his own with the ball, taking three wickets for the loss of just four runs after a number of years away from the game.

Harris took Blackwater's two and only wickets for the match, with both caught in the ever

reliable gloves of wicketkeeper Stan Vipen.

Also handy with the bat, Harris said his New Year's resolution was to notch up 100 runs before the season was out.

"I got 50 in our last game (before the break)... but haven't got the full 100 yet," he said.
