THE Thomas brothers made the win possible for Wonthaggi Workmen’s against Glen Alvie at the weekend.
Combining to 69 runs, Mitchell Thomas 36 and Ryan Thomas 33 were the saving pair for a weaker than average Workmen team.
All out for 128, the bowling of Ben Thomas for Glen Alvie was the biggest impact, taking 5/32 off 16.3 overs.

Ryan Thomas was also a force with the ball, taking 2/26 off 7 overs. Senal De Silva top scored with 34. Sam Watson 4 and Dean Williams 0 will return to the crease next Saturday.
Big hitters finished strong for OMK with Kit Rothier 4/84 off 24 overs doing his best to make a dint in the OMK top order.
But with James Paterson 36 and Peter Dell also 36, from 33 balls, it was hard to stop the Kongwak momentum.
Thomas Kiely top scored with 66, captain Daniel Mock made a strong 47.
It will be up to Inverloch, second position on the ladder at 110 points, to come out swinging against OMK 104 points, in fourth position to see who receives home games and possible chances in finals. Second spot on the cards for OMK.
