Take two for Twenty20s after washout

FIRST and second grade were not the only casualties of last weekend’s rain, with the finals of the Twenty20s at Berry Sporting Complex having to be postponed. 

The second attempt at the finals will hopefully be played on Sunday, with the situation the same as it was last week. 

Nowra and Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen will kick things off with the first semi-final at 10.30am, followed by Batemans Bay and Bomaderry at 1pm. 

With the one-day premiership already in their trophy cabinet, Nowra will be hoping they can move one step closer to taking out the trifecta. 

Their skipper Michael Coulter said last week that he thought they had been below par in the shortened format, but was still confident they can produce their best on the day. 

But they will face a tough game contest from Ex-Servos, who are keen win back the trophy that has eluded them since 2009-10. 

Daniel Gleeson was confident of his sides chances, but knows they will have to get past Nowra first. 

While Batemans Bay could well finish as wooden spooners in the two-day competition, they have been the surprise packet of the Twenty20s. 

Whether or not they can come away with the trophy is not a massive priority for Andrew Malcolm, who felt just to make it to the semis is a positive step forward for the club. 

Bomaderry only just managed to scrape into the top four, but their captain Jordan Matthews feels they have a good chance if they can get through to the decider. 

Matthews said winning would be a big boost to their confidence, given they have come close to winning several pieces of silverware in recent seasons without any luck. 

Let’s just hope the rain stays away this time, or it could be a case of being third time lucky.
