CLOCKTOWER Hotel Brothers can breathe easier this Christmas break after securing their second win of the season on Saturday.

Bowling first against a depleted MI Organics Westlawn, Brothers overcame their wayward bowling to restrict the home team to 107.

A middle order collapse saw Brothers limp to 6-57, before Beau Sevil (29no) played a Michael Bevan-like innings to guide his team to a tight two-wicket victory.

It was closer than captain Ryan Lynch would have preferred, but to say he was happy with the win would be an understatement.

"We did it the hard way, but we got there," Lynch said.

"We bowled quite a few wides, but it's good to get the win."

Brothers ended up contributing 42 of Westlawn's runs through extras, with 32 of those being wides.

Brothers have been through a lean run in recent times, with their last win coming over a month ago.

Lynch lauded his team's efforts and said the result would provide a major psychological boost.

"There were a few nervous moments along the way but we got there," Lynch said.

"Now we know we can win it might give us an extra little boost after the break."

Westlawn skipper Tony Blanch lamented his team's loss after taking the field with only 10 players.

"It's really disappointing to be honest," Blanch said.

"The worst part is we didn't bat our overs out and that's the key to these games.

"If we had the extra player the result could've been a lot different."

Blanch said Westlawn was guilty of playing too many silly shots, suggesting it was focused on attacking the bowlers.

"There were times in the innings we needed to consolidate the innings but we didn't," Blanch said.

"We need to work on adjusting to the conditions as well as deciding when to go for the big shots, because it's not working."
