Brookers break the drought

HOLBROOK broke through for its first win of the season with an 18-run victory against Osborne at Osborne on Saturday.

After being set 119 for victory, the Brookers recovered from the loss of early wickets with Jim Grills leading them to a drought-breaking win.

Grills made an invaluable 61 with support coming from Josh Jones (23) and Will Heriot (16).

Osborne’s Dougal Howard was the pick of the bowlers with 3-22.

Culcairn edged out rivals Henty by nine runs at Henty.

The Lions looked in trouble after being restricted to 8-115 but their bowlers did just enough to prevent Shaun Joyce (24) and Mark White (23) reeling in the target.
