Hollman shows Aussie heritage
Pacific v Lessa Wanderers at Away  Sat 29-Aug-1998

At last, Lessa finally achieved their batting potential against Pacific which they found far easier to locate against lesser bowling sides.

LW : 238-8 dec. S Beck 120. I Lay 9-1-40-3.
P : 146-3. S Lay 56* T Mileham 31 Powell 12-2-32-2

This time Pacific were under strength & aligned with a truly dreadful fielding performance & an absence of in form bowlers played out for a tame draw. This was the 8th meeting between the sides & Pacific were unbeaten. Captain Steve Lay faced with a strong looking batting line up & knowing the weakness in his own attack, opted the chase what the bowlers left him with. The only seamer available, Stevešs brother, Ian picked up 3 wickets as the batters otherwise tucked in - especially Steve Beck who scored an unbeaten century before retiring out.

He did survive a stumping appeal in the 90s, a confident lbw shout & 8 (eight) dropped catches. batting in reply, caution prevailed as once Tim Mileham was out at 51-2 the shutters virtually came down in the absence of gimme bowling. Steve thrashed out with 3 overs to go & Hollman uncharacteristically refused to walk after edging but it was a misleading ending to a tame display.
