Peninsula makes the finals
FOUR Mossman State High students who made the Peninsula 14 Years and Under cricket team were ecstatic to return from Bundaberg last week after finishing runners-up at the Schoolboys’ State Championships.
Peninsula, captained by David Coulthard, made it to the final after defeating South Coast, Metropolitan West, Northern and Capricornia in tough matches as 10 teams contested the title.
Batting first in the final, Peninsula finished with 7-133 off its 50 overs while Brisbane’s Met North team scored the winning runs in the 39th over with the loss of seven wickets.
Glen Ives opened the batting, topping Peninsula’s batting aggregate for the week, while Ben Shrimpton and Kaiden Sorensen took valuable wickets, runs and catches for the team.
The boys enjoyed the carnival immensely and would like to thank everyone who has helped them along the way.
