C Grade Muddies sink claws into Barron River
The Court House Port Douglas C-Grade Mudcrabs march on with another tight win against Barron River.
All bowlers contributed to this hard fought win however Man of the Match was awarded to Daryl Mison who took 3 for 12 in just 7 overs, Simon Cody who bowled a very controlled line and length finishing with 3 for 16 in 7 overs and Matt Schiesser who took 2 for 21 in 7 overs.
Great catches by Simon Cody and Bronson Ryan on the day. Both players demonstrated excel- lent and disciplined fielding and bowling skills that got Barron River all out for just 67.
It looked like a simple task to knock off this meagre total but Barron River with veteran Peter Whitehead back in the ’saddle’ were not going to go without a fight.
Captain Steve Doble donned his Geofrrey Boycott hat and stuck to the task of anchoring the innings with an invaluable 8 runs from a dogged 17 overs.
Wickets were tumbling around him as the Muddies struggled to get to the total but eventually achieved the win with Sammy Evans bringing them home with a quick game saving 18 not out for a 3 wicket win.
