Past Grammars bounce back with big win over Brothers

BREAKING: Past Grammars have returned to their devastating best after destroying Bundaberg's Brothers by 103 runs at Maryborogh's Newtown Oval.

It was skipper Sam Chew who led Past Grammars to their first victory of the Sugar Cities Challenge competition, smashing 113 runs to guide his team to an imposing 4-291 off 40 overs.

In reply, the visitors were never hunt finishing 5-188.

Matt Nowitzki was the main destroyer with the ball grabbing three wickets.

Earlier, Russell Hotchin (50) and Paul Sanders (64) posted their first half centuries of the first grade season.

As for Chew, the man was simply beastly.

Brothers bowlers dished out too many bad balls which were duly taken care of by the 22-year-old, who smashed 15 boundaries in his brilliant century.

Meanwhile, Bushrangers have come crashing back to earth after their season-opening victory against Past Grammars, losing to North Bundaberg by 71 runs.
