Hornets display sportmanship in tough defeat

IPSWICH Logan Hornets Lord Taverners Cup (under-16) team fell to its second defeat of the cricket season.

Wests made 246 before bowling the Hornets out for 138 at Graceville on Saturday.

"Some accurate bowling from Wests and a low, slow wicket combined to make scoring very difficult as the day wore on," Hornets coach Alan Clark said.

Matt Atkins made 35 for the Hornets. Captain Matty Elkins compiled 29.

Man-of-the-match Cameron Bandy scored 19 to go with his 4-45 with the ball.

With the target well out of reach, Ipswich Logan's best chance of securing points came in holding out for a draw.

"We were dismissed in the 67th over, just failing to force a draw," Clark said. "Everyone put their best foot forward, showing a lot of grit and determination in what were trying conditions."

Rather than being disappointed by the loss, Clark was pleased to see the effort and sportsmanship his team showed in defeat.

"This group is proving very resilient and I am pleased that they were prepared to knuckle down and fight it right out to the finish," he said. "You don't always get the result you're looking for, but I was more than happy with the overall effort."

The Hornets head to Redlands for this weekend's game.
