University record first win in TCI A grade T20 competition

UNIVERSITY took the points in the long-awaited TCI A grade Twenty20 opener against Northern Brothers Diggers at Heritage Oval.

The start of the T20 season was delayed by nearly two months but University would be happy with the outcome after the wait as it edged past Diggers by eight runs on Friday night.

University batted first and posted 7-146 from its 20 overs.

Ged Sippel (39) and Brendan O'Keeffe (24) made starts at the top of the order before Chris Webster (37) combined with Dean Sullivan (10 not out) down the order to contribute an important 45-run partnership late to help University to what proved to be enough runs.

Kris Glass tried to keep the Uni batsmen in check as he took 3-28 from three overs for Diggers.

In reply, opener Blake Anderson scored a half-century for Diggers.

He hit four sixes on the way to a score of 56 from 45 balls.

That and a late unbeaten partnership of 36 from captain Derek Nitschke (35 not out) and Josh Barrett (16 not out) got Diggers close but they couldn't quite chase down the University total.
