Lyons half century boost for Hornets
THE Ipswich Logan Hornets continue to seek their first win of the season.
But there was cause for optimism in the weekend's loss to Gold Coast at Baxter Oval.
Hornets wicket-keeper David Lyons had a return to form with the bat, top scoring with 68 in his team's first innings 220.
New recruit, Papua New Guinean representative Charles Amini showed his capabilities with the bat, hitting 36 before taking 2-27 with his leg spin.
It was fellow leg spinner Dan Parnell who took the honours with the ball however, claiming 3-62 in Gold Coast's 261.
Player-coach Geoff Paulsen found form in the second dig with 65 not out as the Hornets finished 7-170.
There was in joy in the lower grades with the Hornets seconds beaten by Gold Coast, though Todd Rasmussen (5-59) and Stuart Edgar (52) performed well. The Hornets thirds lost to Norths by one run.
