Over the three days, Mary­bor­ough played nine games for five wins and four loses.

Kelly said there was a great team of play­ers and of­fi­cials, coached by Wendy Mathieson, man­aged by Fiona James and scorer Bar­bara Mor­ris.

Mary­bor­ough had the fourth best runs for and against be­hind Toowoomba, Red­lands and Glad­stone – the three top teams.

Glad­stone beat Bund­aberg 11-1 in the Pres­i­dent’s Cup and Red­lands beat Toowoomba in the grand fi­nal 7-5.

Kelly’s mum, An­drea, said there was “a great bunch of pa- rents out there to sup­port the boys and we were very im­pressed with their com­ing to­gether as a team over the three days of com­pe­ti­tion”.
