Bulldogs struggle to finish off the Bees

Premier Grade Cricket: Round 4, 27/10/18 Bankstown v Uni of NSW Week 1 The Bankstown Sports Bulldogs bowled first at Memorial Oval and dismissed Uni of NSW for 299. The Bumble Bees were in dire straits early but the tail wagged defiantly. Rhys Williams claimed the first wicket LBW and Matthew Waite held onto a skied pull shot from lively Liam Marshall. A tumbling Daniel Solway held onto a sharp chance at first slip from the bowling of Waite, a very fine acquisition from Sussex. Nathan McAndrew toppled the timbers next with a brute of a delivery and the Bulldogs were more than happy with four wickets before lunch.

Round 2 / PG T20 match reports

First Grade It was a tribute to the hard-working club volunteers and Curator Warwick Starr that the match vs Sydney could be completed despite the severe drenching in the preceding couple of days at Memorial Oval. Unfortunately, it was not good news for the Bankstown Sports Bulldogs who were edged out by defending premiers Sydney. Chasing the visitors 292 the locals were dismissed for just 250 in an interesting finish. Superb stroke maker Daniel Solway kept the Bulldogs barking with a typically defiant 57. The accomplished run-getter plundered 8 boundaries which was no mean feat given the rain soaked outfield. It was a severe blow for the Bulldogs when he was adjudged LBW. Brendan Smith a
