Pacific come up roses
Pacific v Rose & Crown at Victoria Park Pitch 1  Thu 08-May-2003 at 6.30pm
Won 3 wkts
 

The reigning champions scored their first win of the season with 5 balls to spare against Rose and Crown in a nail-biting finish at Victoria Park in the gathering gloom on Thursday evening.

Put in by Pacific, Rose and Crown mustered a respectable 125. The pick of the batsman was Sean who scored 50 before retiring. All the bowlers bowled economically including 8 a side rookies Rob Bastin and Kurt Rademaker. Top marks to Darryl for a quality run out and commiserations to the skipper for two dropped catches off his bowling.

Pacific's reply started steadily with Murray and Hollman scoring a combination of singles and boundaries. Unfortunately they were removed in quick succession by the spinner Monahan but Emmins proceeded to bludgeon some meaty blows with support from Campbell. These two then departed and it was left to Roberts and new man Rademaker to score 26 runs off the final two overs. This they did in 7 ballls to the delight of the team.

Captain Campbell said after the game "It was a great game and I am over the moon that our season is back on track the all credit to the boy Kurt for a marvellous all round performance on his debut and also thanks to Dave Gluckman for playing and giving me a lift home."
