The South Canty Primary A XI were beaten by Otago Country by 66 runs.
Otago Country batted first and were bowled out for 138 which was a good effort by the South Canterburyy bowlers with Gabrial Evans taking 3-17, Ben Aicken 2-22 and Jayden Henderson 3-6. A better fielding display would have kept the score down even further but 4 catches were grassed and two run outs missed.
In reply Sth Canty were left rueing some poor running between the wicket giving up three easy run outs and leaving them 25 for 5 from which they never recovered, being bowled out for 72. Gabrial Evans was the only batsmen to make double figures with 18.
A much better display will be needed this Sunday when they take on Dunedin Metro in Dunedin.
