GERRINGONG Jets forced their way back into contention for the Sommers 20/20 Cup last Friday, downing Jamberoo Bulls at Gerry Emery Oval.
In a match postponed in order to make the most of the Australia Day long weekend, Bulls captain Scott Adams won the toss and elected to bat. Despite the loss of two early wickets, Liam Mann (18) and Sam Shortland (22), steadied the ship before Mann was dismissed with the score on 56.
From there, it was all downhill for the Bulls. Their innings was wrecked by youngster Manning Berry, who finished with 3-9 off his four overs. Travis McMahon took 4-8 from three overs. In the end, the Bulls had to be content with a tally of 92.
Jets skipper David Reid (32) and Peter Quine (17) gave their side a 50-run start and Steve Tinnion (15 not out) and Jesse O'Hare (14 not out) finished the job as they won with seven wickets and four overs to spare.
Brian Harris was the Bulls most successful bowler with 2-19 from his four overs.
The Jets are now in equal fourth spot on the competition table with two round remaining. Points are: Oak Flats 63, Shellharbour 56, Kiama 51, Lakers and Gerringong 39, Albion Park and The Rail 22, Jamberoo 20.
