B’s miss out

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

SUN­DAY saw the Mud­dies B grade side head down to Grif­fiths Park in Cairns for the sec­ond week of their game against Tully.

Need­ing just three wick­ets to win but with Tully only need­ing eight runs it was go­ing to be a hard task but the boys were pos­i­tive, es­pe­cially with Dave John­son get­ting an early break­through - but to no avail.

Un­for­tu­nately the start didn’t get any bet­ter with Tully putting on an ex­tra 90 runs in the hour be­fore their in­nings closed.

With plenty of play left the Mud­dies rel­ished the chance at some qual­ity bat­ting time as Tully were short on play­ers.

Sam Hodg­son and Simeon Migliorenza put on 70 in the open­ing stand to set the in­nings with Sam mak­ing 46 be­fore los­ing a few to be 4/82 be­fore Jor­dan But­terss and Ju­lian Har­rold stead­ied the ship, putting on 90 with Jor­dan go­ing on to make 78, leav­ing the Mud­dies all out for 253.

With nine overs to be bowled and the chance of tak­ing a few quick wick­ets for bonus points with­out the win the boys leapt out the box, tak­ing 4/47 with Dave John­son and Adam Lu­cas shar­ing the wick­ets.
