Souths hit form with bat
SOUTHS Services will be looking to finish the season on a high after surpassing 200 for the first time on Saturday.
On the back of mediocre scores, Souths are all but mathematically out of the finals race, but with 214 on the board are poised to take first innings points against GDSC Easts, who are 5 for 70 in reply, and can cause headaches for Brothers in the last round should they continue to pile on the runs.
Luke Sullivan (27) and Rowan Green (36) got things going in the top order for Souths before Matthew Peterson (55) was supported by a wagging tail with Josh Amos (23) and a 58-run 10th wicket partnership with Fred Holloway (21no).
"It was good for everyone to pitch in and get some runs," Green said.
"Pedro (Peterson) batted real well yesterday.
"We got a big score on the board so it's looking pretty good."
The Cleaver brothers made inroads with the ball, with Brendan taking 2 for 17 off 6 overs and Chris 2 for 8 off 5.
