SOUTHERN CRICKET ASSOCIATION
Finals Week 2
AFTER last week's loss to Bagdad in the Fourth Grade qualifying final, Bothwell I redeemed itself in the first semi-final with a four wicket win over the Knights at Pontville.
The Knights won the toss and had first hit, but were soon in trouble as openers Nathan Eyles and Nathan White cut loose on the Knights top order who were in all sorts of trouble at 4/10 and then bowled out for just 82 off 31.1 overs.
Nathan Eyles finished with the excellent figures of 5-18 off 7 overs while Nathan White was incredibly tight with 2-4 off 6.1 overs. Tyler White was just as good taking 1-8 (6). Matthew Eyles took 1-12 (3) and Trent Rogers 1-21 (3).
In reply, the Bucks lost six wickets on the run chase, finishing 6/85 off 21.5 overs. Matthew Eyles top-scored with 20 runs. Bradley Eyles made 15 and captain Codey Eyles made 10.
