THE Bega/Angledale Bulls finished the final Twenty20 double header with mixed results on Saturday.
The first round clash against Eden did not go the Bulls way, with the Reds storming into the final after belting 201 runs.
Eden was determined on Saturday with the opening batsmen beginning the scoring early.
Captain Drew Mudaliar scored 44 before being caught by Sam Hodder.
Meanwhile, Dylan Wheeler scored 46 and Andrew Evelyn added 30, but was run out by Cody Hazelgrove-Danvers.
Corey Spink had a solid turn at the crease steadily building his 25.
He was joined by his dad Mark who finished the innings for Eden belting three sixes from the final three balls to see Eden break the 200-run barrier in the last over.
Brad Moon took two wickets while Jack Allen and Brad Ingwersen both claimed one.
The Bulls batting was steady, but wickets began falling off with captain Dave Allen top-scoring on 26 runs.
Lambert added 19 and Moon’s 13 helped the Bulls reach 122 in their 20 overs.
However, the Bulls consolidated their efforts and overcame Pambula.
In a sharp turnaround the Bulls top order scored a swag of runs, with the middle order adding to the hurt for the Pambula Bluedogs.
Kel Evans scored 30, while Hazelgrove-Danvers knocked 45 and Moon scored 32.
With Lambert adding 29 to the cause, the Bulls quickly set a 175 run target for Pambula to follow.
The Bluedogs got off to a solid start, but were quickly toppled after Shane Garrett fell to a Hazelgrove-Danvers catch for 48.
Corey Mitchell added 24 and Tom Hammond’s 18 saw Pambula build its run rate, but could not overcome the Bulls target.
The Bluedogs finished their overs on eight for 133, 40 runs short of the target.
It was a stellar bowling showing from young Jack Allen again claiming four wickets to cripple the Bluedogs line-up.
The Bulls will now have a break for Christmas and return to the pitch on January 11 for the first game of the two-day competition.
