May 15, 2002 vs Tower Ravens Lost by three wickets

Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures

Edged to defeat

How the wickets tumbled: Thornhill bowled.... ...Muir bowled

Snick! Snack! The ball slipped back! The keeper caught and killed the attack! 

In other words, our key batsmen kept edging to the keeper, when they weren't being clean bowled by the nippy deliveries.

Thornhill, Stebbins, Muir, Wardle, Rooney, Hosking. They all fell at low cost to the Ravens.

It was the tail that wagged, as net stars Frisby and Shaw kept the game going all the way to the end for a 44-run partnership -- over half the total.

The Ravens made their chase look easy, until a late mini-collapse added some excitement to the close. 

But in the end fate could not be tricked and the game was duly lost with overs to spare.
