The boys have gone down in a nail biting T20 clash tonight after getting themselves into a winning position the boys just couldn't finish the job off.
Winning the toss and batting first our guys made a positive start. Fergy looked as good as ever at the top, he lost Lachy, Curtly and Casey before finding a stable partner in 15 year old Tanner Bruhn. The pair put on 40 together before both falling in quick succession. Fergy for a well made 42. Tommy Math came in and cashed in on some bad bowling to make a quick fire 23 as our guys finished up posting 9/134.
With the ball Our guys quickly got on top as Leopold were in strife at 4/35 in the 7th over. Some smart batting and bad bowling from our guys gave Leopold a sniff. With 5 overs to go Leopold required 43 for victory and it was anybody's game. 2 tight overs from Mitchell and 1 from Ferg had us in a winning position with Leopold needing 27 to win from the remaining 2 overs. However that's where our luck ran out as 1 young Leopold batsman continued to find the boundary and our 2 bowlers, Nat and Tom couldn't do anything about it. Leopold winning with 1 ball to spare. Mitch the pick of the bowlers with 3/23 from his 4 overs, whilst Kingy deserves a mention with 0/7 off his 3 overs.
That doesn't end our T20 year however it means that we do need to win our 2 remaining games, starting next week with Geelong City at the Nest on Tuesday Night.
