The Gladdies managed to have nine for enough of the game time to make it interesting, but not that interesting. 128, albeit on a slow outfield, is well under any Moore Park 4 par. Nearly everyone got a few away but also got out to disciplined and steady bowling. In the end, Edgemasters beat us by only 3 wickets, but in the 22nd over of their chase. We had them in trouble at 5/60 after 15 overs, but the tail wagged and Edgemasters’ number 6 slogged his way to 40, basically killing the contest. Props to Simon for coming on down and joining us, with 3 wickets on debut in not quite long enough pants. And Christian split his. Round 1 of 12ths a disappointment but Gladdies always play worse in the lesser grade. On to 11ths!
