Thun­der­bolts too good for Guns

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
