Bomaderry wins T20 title

BOMADERRY ended their recent title drought with a two-wicket win in the SDCA Twenty 20 final against Shoalhaven Ex-servicemen at Berry Sporting Complex on Sunday night.

It went right down to the wire in a contest that was always exciting and kept spectators on the edge of their seats until the end.

Ex-Servos batted first and were well served by their skipper Daniel Gleeson (58) and Simon Schmotz (46 not out) in their total of 5/148.

John Muggleton was the best of the bowlers for Bomaderry, with 2/16 from his three overs.

Bomaderry made a positive start to their run chase with opener Jason Bell (45) making sure the scoreboard kept ticking over.

Momentum looked to have swung in Ex-Servos favour in the middle overs, thanks to a great spell from James Spackman (2/21) with Bomaderry slumping to 7/99 and needing to score at 10 an over.

An impressive 47-run stand from John Muggleton and Nick Jennings dug Bomaderry right out of a hole and had them needing just four runs from the last two overs.

Ex-Servos looked like they might have a sniff when Muggleton was bowled for 22 on the first ball of the 19th over, with Lain Beckett (1/12) finishing his spell with a wicket maiden.

But Jennings was able to keep a cool head and struck the winning runs with a boundary with just four balls remaining.

Jennings finished unbeaten on 35 as Bomaderry reached the total with two wickets in hand.
