Jjnr Mud­dies find the gaps

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS - CRICKET

PLAY­ING their sec­ond home game in a row, Mud­dies Un­der-12 cap­tain Daven­port won the toss and chose to bowl.

Af­ter five overs Ather­ton found them­selves at 6-18.

Doble (3-14) and Al­li­son (2-3) ripped through the top or­der with Rayner as­sist­ing with two great catches.

Even Stan­away (1) and P.Dar­ling­ton (1) who vol­un­teered to play for the op­pos­ing side couldn’t stem the flow of fall­ing wick­ets.

Twomey (0-0) bowled great line and length re­sult­ing in suc­ces­sive maiden overs while the only runs against Cur­tis’s name were wides (0-3).

For­tu­nately for Ather­ton the tail stood strong with a 57-run part­ner­ship be­fore the last wicket fell at 78.

Mud­dies opener Ed­wards (2) was look­ing con­fi­dent till the ball snuck through his de­fen­sive shot.

Then came a list of play­ers that re­tired un­de­feated in­clud­ing Cooper who still hasn’t lost his wicket this sea­son, Deu­ble (27 off 20 balls) was find­ing the gaps to the bound­ary, Con­ner hit­ting his first run for the club and Doble who ripped apart Ather­ton’s bowl­ing at­tack smash­ing 27 off 13 balls in­clud­ing a six over square leg.

Dar­ling­ton saw the fi­nal over from the non strik­ers end but the team couldn’t be hap­pier with the fi­nal score or re­sult 3-157.
