Brothers attack Norths
DESTRUCTIVE Brothers opener Mick Parsons returned to form on the weekend, smashing 71 in his team’s seven-wicket defeat of Norths.
Batting first, Norths got away early thanks to Chris Fisher (43), Adam Muscat (29), and some poor Brothers fielding.
Fisher showed his class, accumulating his runs at good pace until he was undone by off spinner David Boge.
It was a second-string bowling attack without Boyd Williams, Mitch Sartori, Alistair Rathbone and Dean Kronk.
But proven performer David Boge (4-18) and the unorthodox Eddie Butcher (3-39) came to the party.
English wicketkeeper Chris Powell even had a bowl, cleaning up the tail to finish with 2-9.
Norths went from 1-81 to be all out for 127 and Brothers got the runs in 20 overs.
“The pitch played pretty well, it was just maybe a little slow,” Boge said.
“That really suited Eddie and myself.
“But we never should have let them get away like that, our fielding was not up to scratch,” Boge said.
Boge was pleased to see Parsons hit some form
Brothers play another second division side next weekend, before two games against Country Wests heading into the finals.
