IT DID not work the way they wanted it to but the Isis Cricket Club will fea­ture in this year’s Bund­aberg Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion Di­vi­sion 3 premier­ship de­cider.

The ques­tion now is – which side will it be?

The an­swer will be re­vealed at Sal­ter Oval on Satur­day when Isis Green and Isis White face off for a spot in the grand fi­nal.

Isis Green are the de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons, af­ter they se­cured a two-wicket win over Norths last sea­son.

They have been near the top of the ta­ble for most of this sea­son, and when they set ATW262 to win from their 50 overs last week, they must have thought they had a strong chance.

Cap­tainWayne Dowl­ing led the way with an un­beaten 46, while Jack Rowan (40), Dar­ren Green (44) and Zac Dann (35) made valu­able con­tri­bu­tions.

Their plans were ripped to shreds by a pa­tient, high-qual­ity innings from Matthew Ross.

Ross re­mained un­beaten on 71 as ATWreached the tar­get with 20 balls to spare.

Nic Lind­say was the pick of the bowlers with 2-45 from 10, but most were carted for a run a ball.

Isis White eased their way past CCWS for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive week.

Rod Jensen top-scored with 49, closely fol­lowed by Graeme Bartlett’s 46, as Isis posted 254 from their 50 overs.

Marty Ryan was the chief de­stroyer as he nabbed 5-32 from 7.4 overs, while Jensen ended with 3-30.

The win­ner of Satur­day’s clash will back up 24 hours later against ATW.
