Brothers in arms go down swinging

IT was the match to decide local bragging rights - and Brothers’ two colts lineups didn’t disappoint.

The limited-over contest was always likely to be a tight encounter and after winning the toss and electing to bowl, Brothers Holiday Coast went to work at the bowling crease.

Brothers McKenzie slumped to 9-102 as Wayne Lentfer ripped through the middle order.

He finished with 4-22 from five overs.

But his hard work was almost undone as Harry Fahey (38) combined with number 11 Josh Wrigley (19 not out) to add 53 for the last stand and give their side a chance of victory.

Jacob Bagnall and Mitchell Rose each snared three scalps in an impressive all-round performance with the ball.

But when both openers fell early, McKenzie was back in the contest.

A steadying late hand from Bagnall (33 not out) was not enough as his side never recovered from the early losses.

They were eventually bundled out for 131 – 24 short of the points – in 32 overs.

Representative player Jake Kroehnert did much of the damage as he took 3-15 off six frugal overs.

Wrigley also put his hand up for a man-of-the-match award as he took 3-11.

The win for McKenzie maintains the pressure on Coutts at the head of the under-16 table while Holiday Coast remain out of touch with the top four.
