Hadspen bracing for a beauty of a battle

HADSPEN will be looking to secure its position at third place on the TCL roster this weekend against Beauty Point.

The teams have a head-to-head record of one-all this season and captains Anton Balym, of Hadspen, and Stuart Prewer, of Beauty Point, are expecting a battle.

Although it will be a home-ground advantage for Beauty Point, Balym said it could be anyone's game.

"Beauty Point has been playing some good cricket, it's going to be a hard battle," he said.

"They've got three blokes in form - Robbie Eltringham is looking good, (Adam) Turner is in good form and Jason Savage is always a hard opponent."

Beauty Point only needs to win one match in the next three to secure its position in the finals, but the team is not going to get complacent, according to Prewer.

"It's going to be a hard game this week," he said.

"We'll need early wickets, their opening batsmen are good at the top of the order - they go very steadily and very rarely get bowled out."

Although he's confident in the lead-up to the match, Prewer said the side would be missing a couple of players.

"We'll have Kyle Ebden and Brian Bell coming in, Kyle's only played about five games, but he's a good cricketer and Brian is a local from Beauty Point," he said.

The match will be played at Beauty Point tomorrow.

In other matches, Trevallyn will take on ACL at Brooks, Longford hosts the Diggers at Hagley and Uni-Mowbray will face Legana at home.
