Ensbey helps set up victory

WITH Harwood master blaster Geoff Simmons and elegant opening partner Ben McMahon back in the sheds, all of a sudden South Services found themselves in the box seat early on day one.

And things could have got a whole lot worse for the reigning premiers if a controversial caught behind decision went the opposition's way.

It was a pivotal moment in the match and one that will be talked about for years to come.

Harwood number three Nathan Ensbey strolled to the crease with his side reeling at 2-39 and with just four runs to his name survived a confident caught behind appeal.

The South players went up as one, pleading with the umpire to raise his finger in what they believed was a thick outside edge, which thudded into Michael Fletcher's gloves.

Ensbey was given not out and went on to score a gritty 80 as he and Mark Ensbey combined for a 145-run match-winning partnership.
