Stingers slightly bite Colts

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

FOR Stingers bowler Josh Al­lan, be­ing named player of the match at the Stingers and Colts game on Satur­day is some­thing he takes mod­estly.

“I’m not a man to brag about any­thing,” Al­lan said.

“I’ve done bet­ter than that, but I sup­pose it’s good to get that re­spect from your team mates, to know you’ve done well.”

Al­lan, who gets a lot of prac­tice bowl­ing at work by throw­ing or­anges around a pack­ing shed, said he thought he bowled well on Satur­day.

“I bowled not too bad, but I had a few to many wides there,” he said.

“The Colts had a left hand right hand com­bi­na­tion, but I still took the five wick­ets, it wasn’t a bad ef­fort.”

He said it was good to walk away with a win in Mundubbera.

“The boys did pretty well, it was on the wire a lit­tle bit, but we got home in the end,” he said.

“It was a good day, an early start and that which is good as you still have time in the af­ter­noon to do what­ever you want, it was good.”

Cap­tain Ross Schulte echoed Al­lan’s com­ments.

“He got five wick­ets to­day, so that’s a tro­phy,” Schulte said.

“He was the best bowler to­day, so I’m happy with that, it’s good.”

Schulte said the game went ac­cord­ing to his plan.

“My plan was to field first and then re­strict them to a rea­son­able to­tal, which we did,” he said.

“I just bat­ted sta­ble through the in­nings, got a lot of head­ers in the team, they all did their role.

“We came out on top, just in that last over. “

He said the main thing the team would take away from the game was con­fi­dence.

“Just the be­lief that we can do it even with­out our good play­ers,” he said.

“That’s our goal, to keep go­ing steadily.

“Next week should be a rip­per of a game against the Wan­der­ers. It’s al­ways close and al­ways com­pet­i­tive.”
