Mud­dies sea­son over

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

BOTH Mud­dies out­fits put up a fight but ul­ti­mately bowed out in the semi-fi­nal of the two-day cricket competition on the week­end.

The C-Grade Mud­dies could only field 10 play­ers against Ather­ton and man­aged 102 in their first in­nings, with opener Sam Evans top-scor­ing with 30 sup­ported by top or­der bats­men Steve Doble and Si­mon Cody who both scored 19.

In re­ply, Ather­ton notched up 136 all out, with Cody star­ring with the ball to bag 5-48.

Cody con­tin­ued his good form with the bat in the sec­ond in­nings to score 50 not out.

Matt Coomb chimed in with 44 but with the Mud­dies need­ing to win out­right to reach the fi­nal the team de­clared on 4-142. Ather­ton reached stumps on 4-112 to win.

B-Grade faced a sim­i­lar sce­nario and had to push for an out­right win against Mul­grave. The Mud­dies were chas­ing a tar­get of 146 in the first in­nings but were all out for 105, with Simeon Miglio­ranza top-scor­ing with 66 not out.

Mul­grave were then bowled out for 121 in the sec­ond in­nings, but this proved too much for the Mud­dies who were bowled out for 100. Dave Joyce top-scored with 35. Pick of the bowlers was Daryl Mi­son who col­lected nine wick­ets for the match.
