Two Blues all set to take on View­ers


Kalgoorlie Miner - - SPORT -

First-placed Great Boul­der hope to ex­ploit a strug­gling Lake View and ex­tend their lead when Gold­fields A-grade turf cricket re­sumes to­mor­row.

Great Boul­der boast six wins, along­side two losses and a draw, to hold a one-game buf­fer over North Kal­go­or­lie.

All-rounder Mitch Carter has been named for his first A-grade game out­side the Twenty20 for­mat with the Two Blues at Cruick­shank Sports Arena.

Lake View have not won since round 1, but Great Boul­der coach Mel Gal­lagher was not get­ting ahead of him­self.

“They beat us in round 1 and our other games against them have been quite com­pet­i­tive,” he said.

“We’re very mind­ful that they’ve got some good play­ers back since very early in the sea­son.

“It’s im­por­tant we keep the mo­men­tum go­ing, be­cause apart from a cou­ple of Twenty20 wins, the real stuff starts again Sun­day.

“Most of our guys are back on deck and avail­able, and hope­fully in six weeks time we’re still in a good po­si­tion for the fi­nals.”

Also to­mor­row, de­fend­ing pre­miers Han­nans will look to draw level with sec­ond­placed Norths in a grand fi­nal re­play at Wal­lace Park.
