Gala beat Largo by 104 runs

EAST LEAGUE DIVISION TWO

Gala hosted previously undefeated table toppers Largo, but it was the Meigle Park men who came out on top with an emphatic 104-run victory.

Stevie Halls and David Boland got the home side off to a great start of 68 in only 14 overs before Rintoul removed Boland for 22.

Halls went on to record his third half century of the season, going on to score 65, before being dismissed going down the wicket to off spinner Brown.

The home side lost some momentum in the middle of the innings, but useful contributions from Duncan Millar (24), Neil Crooks (37) and Graeme Ormiston (30 not out) saw Gala take their total to 215 for 8 after 50 overs.

Stand-in opening bowlers Dinesh Tharanga and Dean Moir were on great form to reduce the visitors to 52 for 5 with Tharanga picking up 3 for 28 and Moir 2 for 20. Crooks (3 for 24) and Rory Hancock (2 for 10) helped finish Largo off for 111.
