HENTY locked in a spot in the Holbrook and District finals with a 29-run win over Holbrook at Holbrook on Saturday.

After battling to 8-98 off its 40 overs, the Swampies defended grimly to post their most important victory of the season.

Number 10 batsman Kyle Dickson’s 17 not out proved invaluable.

“It was a good win,” Henty captain Chris Spicer said.

“The outfield was really slow and our score was probably worth another 30 or 40 but I must admit I thought we mightn’t have made enough runs.

“We bowled and fielded really well though.”

Holbrook youngster Bailey Parker topscored in the chase with 32 but a steady flow of wickets saw the Brookers fall well short.

Youngster Bailey Martin finished with his best figures of 4-10 off six overs.

Osborne defeated Culcairn by five wickets thanks to handy knocks from brothers Ed and Nick Perryman.

TRYC had the bye.
