B Grade travelled to Bice Oval with the game finely in the balance with Southerns requiring 170 more runs with 9 wickets in hand. 

After a lacklustre 20 overs in the field the previous week from everyone the energy and commitment was there from ball one Saturday. Nick Palmer started us off with two quick wickets before Cameron Fatchen and Daniel Burns picked up one each to leave Southerns reeling 5 down still needing another 130. 

Southerns rebuilt to lunch and despite Ash Eckerman and Michael Cappalutti bowling in a terrific partnership into the break we were unable to take the killer blow. 

Southerns fought hard after lunch bringing the equation down to 60 required with 5 wickets still left before Luke Pedlar who had to keep due to an injury to regular keeper Sean Mcullum took a brilliant stumping off Daniel Burns to bring control back to Brown’s.

Southerns kept hanging in there but Kensi continued to take regular wickets eventually bowling Southerns out 20 runs short completing one of the best bowling and fielding efforts of the season.

This win leaves us top with Sturt, who have the bye to come and leaves us in control of where we finish at the end of the season.
