Captain’s knock not enough to keep Brothers alive

PREMIER LEAGUE: A valiant captain's knock from Brothers captain Jake Kroehnert was just not enough to get his side over the line against Tucabia-Copmanhurst.

"It was my job to be there at the end, but I just couldn't quite do it," Kroehnert said. "In the end it was not as satisfying as it should have been."

Kroehnert scored 62 before being bowled by Tucabia paceman Brad Chard with nine overs remaining in the day's play.

Two quick wickets followed as Brothers succumbed to the wily bowling attack of Tucabia.

"We were just glad it was a good game of cricket, we never threw in the towel.

"We played cricket until 6.30 on a Sunday afternoon so you know it was a tight match. We will learn from the experience."
