The Glen slays hapless Norths

THE Glen stopped Rockhampton Norths' winning streak emphatically yesterday in the third round of Yaralla Sports Club's Capricornia Club Challenge.

Rockhampton Norths bowled first, with the local team scoring five for 5-500 at Sun Valley Oval.

The Glen's captain Michael Heymer said his team ended up winning by 384, with the Rockhampton team side only managing 116 with the bat.

Along with Heymer's outstanding captain's knock of 172 runs, Jason Seng had a great day, scoring 100 not out.

David Heymer went close to a the century, scoring an impressive 98.

The Glen has been playing well so far in the challenge, experiencing two wins and one loss, which Heymer attributed to being short of players last week when it faced Frenchville.

Rockhampton Norths captain Justin Peacock said his team just couldn't get into the game.

"We've had two wins and got flogged today," he said.

"We had a few lads who hadn't played cricket before."

The inexperience showed on the field, with Peacock, who scored 46, the only Norths player to get more than 40.
Rockhampton Brothers also couldn't keep up when off home turf, with the Gladstone-based team Yaralla winning their round yesterday.

Yaralla scored 7-393 and Brothers Rockhampton was all out for 223.

Yaralla captain Chris Bye said it was good to see the top order making runs and that the batsmen did their jobs well.

"The training has been paying off."

Yaralla players Jason Batchelor and Andrew Bianchi both had exceptional games, scoring hitting 133 off 72 ball and 81 off 74 balls respectively.

Next Sunday will be the last chance for all eight teams in the competition to shine.

After that the final game of the challenge will be between the leading Rockhampton team and the leading Gladstone team on October 28.
