Beaten by the Biggar boys

GALA Under-13s travelled to Peebles to face the Biggar/Peebles combination and struggled to an eight-wicket defeat.

Batting first, the Meigle Park lads never got going, with only Elliot Mitchell getting into double figures.

They lost wickets regularly, and but for a generous host team, with 36 extras, would not have got to a competitive total.

When it was their turn to bowl, a loose opening spell got Biggar/Peebles off to a great start.

The Gala attack did slow down the run rate, but couldn’t take the wickets they needed to pressure the home side.

It took Biggar-Peebles until the first ball of the final over, but they eventually reached their victory target for the loss of only two wickets.
