Thunderbolts too good for Guns
SPECTATORS were on the edge of their seats watching the Under 11 Douglas Thunderbolts play against Mareeba Guns n Roses at Walkamin State School last Saturday.
Despite the opposition winning the toss the Douglas Thunderbolts won the game by a mere four runs but with more wickets in hand on 3-140.
Credit must go to the Thunderbolts opening bowler Daniel Davidson who took the first wicket of the day in his first over finishing with 1-3 off three overs.
Bowler of the match was Adon Trewick with 3-7 with one wicket taken in each of his three overs.
Wickets were also taken by Nathan Deuble (1-12 off three) assisted with a catch by Adon while Michael Ives took a wicket in his overs assisted by a great catch from Max Brennan at mid-on.
Adon Trewick took a catch off his own bowling and finished the innings by taking the sixth wicket on the last ball sending the bails flying and the ball spinning back to clip the helmet of Bryce Fabiani in his debut position as second-half wicketkeeper.
Mareeba finished their innings on 6-136.
Douglas had a big job ahead of them to make the opposition’s score and opening batsmen Max Brennan and Luke Twomey started off the innings with some great runs.
Daniel Davidson and Levi Trewick sped up the run score and made a great partnership facing their share of fair balls with Daniel retiring on top score of the day of 24 and Levi retiring on 16.
The Sunrise Snackbar Award went to Luke Twomey and the Yum Yums Award went to Nathan for his great improvement in bowling with only one sundry from his three overs.
Take that: The opposition were intimidated by the B-Grade Muddies bowling on Sunday
