GRETNA Cricket Club had a good win over Molesworth in the Twenty20 match at Boyer Oval last Thursday night. It was a great match from the start, with many wickets falling and runs flowing.

Gretna made 9 for 137 off its 20 overs. Mathew Eyles top-scored with a well-made 35 while Aaron Triffitt was the main wicket taker for the home side with 3-15. In the run chase for Molesworth, 17-year-old Cody Neads who has batted superbly thus far this season, opened the batting and belted a terrific 66 with 8x4s and 3x6s. Neads has been batting superbly this season and his timing was spot-on in the night match. His innings was a pleasure to watch

Once Neads was out, the Molesworth wickets fell like ninepins and the side was bowled out for 120 in the 19th over. Molesworth looked all the goods until Neads got out and credit goes to the Gretna players for sticking at the game. Captain Matthew Eyles backed up his batting, taking 3-17 as did his brother Joey 3-26 while Peter Jelkic got two and Dylan Pearce one.

It was a great evening at Boyer Oval. There was a great crowd in attendance and the kiosk was well run by the Molesworth committee. A top job all round.
