CRAFTY Tappers were flogged by Beauy Bucheurs in their first division Last Man Stands cricket match on Sunday.

They lost just two wickets on their way to posting a big 79-run victory.

Craftys won the toss and bowled on a belter of a pitch at Glenlogan Park. The Bucheurs were steady through the first 10 and saw off the good opening bowling.

Sammy Matthews made 42, Lance Newman 47 and Josh Browning 40 out of their score of 2-163.

In reply the Tappers were rolled for 84 with only their skipper Garry Singh making runs, his 42 coming off 24 balls as the Bucheurs bowlers were on song and the game was over inside 14 overs.

With Odd Bunch calling in some back up against the Test Eagles, it was the Eagles in trouble early as they lost three wickets before the score had reached 20, but Joran Korte and Dylan Goodison fought back with half centuries as they scored 174 batting first.

Odd Bunch fell just 16 runs short as Jake Burns hammered 77 from 31 and Test Eagles held on for the win. Jamie Braithwaite and Rob Pearce took two wickets each.

Ladder leaders Middle Stumped batted first and posted a respectable 159 from their 20 overs against the Baggies.

Mick Kelly made a for Middle Stumped AJ Stewart took two wickets for the Baggies.

But the Baggies, with some help from Garry Singh, ran the target down with two overs to spare.

Singh hit a couple into the car park on his way to 53 from 16. He was ably supported by Josh Brookes with 52 from 31 as Adam Godfrey took 2-24. Baggies won by four wickets.

Jimby Crickets batted first against Trouble Makers and made a healthy 190 from their 20 overs.

Dave Harvey scored 50 from 18 balls and Ben Casey hit 48 from 26.

James Dumbrell took 2-32 for the Trouble Makers.

The Trouble Makers were most certainly in trouble early as they scratched their way to 106 all out. Melissa Turbill made her highest LMS score of 42 as her team crumbled around her.

Harvey backed up his heroics with the bat to take 3-5 from his three overs as the Jimbys cruised to an 84-run victory. They cemented their place in the top four, just two weeks out from our finals series.
