No luck for hard working Dogs

Sydney Uni batted first on Sunday at Bankstown Oval in the 50 overs semi- final. The Students performed well to amass 289 in great conditions. The Bulldogs looked to be cruising at 1-134 but a vital over which cost the wickets of Brendan Smith (59) and Daniel Solway (53) turned the game around. Smith was at his aggressive best and he mixed savage straight hits with precision late cuts. His stunning six back over the bowler’s head brought the crowd to its feet. Solway peppered the onside and thumped a towering six over mid-wicket. He was unlucky to be dismissed when he chopped a ball onto his stumps. Jake Cormack kept the Bulldogs hopes alive with 5 boundaries and a savagely struck six. Howev

It was not a good start for Bankstown as the top order collapsed disastrously. At 6-92 Bankstown looked in serious strife but they fought back doggedly to compile 233. Earlier Sydney Thunder paceman and Bulldogs all-rounder Nathan McAndrew batted with great spirit against the Ghosts to score a fighting 37. He was promoted to open the batting and he looked quite at home in this unfamiliar role. McAndrew is a very talented cricketer and this was evident last Saturday with four boundaries and a stunning six. Chris Ridley is never far from the action and once again started

Bulldogs struggle against Warratahs

The Bankstown Sports Club Bulldogs crashed to defeat at the hands of Manly at Memorial Oval last Weekend. The Waratahs batted first on Saturday and performed aggressively to score 8-334. The Bulldog bowlers tried enthusiastically to contain the visitors in ideal conditions. Promising Rhys Williams and Ben Taylor were very accurate and applied the brakes to the Seagulls batsmen. Williams used his height and pace to rattle Manly with many lethal deliveries which helped him claim 3-58. He removed three of the top order batsmen in his fiery spell including century maker Lenton. Nathan McAndrew worked up good pace and took 1-20 in a very economical 10 overs. Taylor continues to impress and was
