Brunswick extracted some revenge over Plenty Valley by knocking the Bats out of the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association T20 twilight competition.
Facing each other for the second time within a week, after the Bats won their two-day clash at the weekend, it was a reversal of results on Tuesday night.
The Bats failed to fire with the bat and were bowled out for just 63 in the 18th over.
Needing a miracle and a lot of early wickets, the Bats weren’t able to find either on the way to a solid loss.
The Wicks had little trouble chasing down the runs, finishing 1-68 with 11 overs remaining.
Scott Sanders was the star for the Wicks, taking 4-3 and then following it up with 50 not out.
It’s the second straight year the Wicks have knocked the Bats out of the T20 competition, both times in the second round.
The win moves the Wicks into the quarter finals.
