"We bowled too full it's as simple as that, we did not field cleverly either and dropped catches."
Needing a good start, Wells lost Robert Marshall (9) and wicketkeeper Mark Webb, who was run out for eight, before Rob Leiper and Michael Richardson steadied the ship.
However Richardson was also run out for 30 and when Hassan Chowdhury, Will Rogers and Dean Majeed fell cheaply, it was always going to be tough on Leiper, who made a well-crafted 79.
"Rob found some form and hit back well, but it doesn't help when players run themselves out," O'Reilly said.
"Some boys need to be more cricket-aware out there. They don't concentrate enough and I believe that was a big factor in us losing.
