Ma­reeba too strong

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Un­der-14 Mud­dies took on the toost­rong Ma­reeba Gold at the Mud­die Pit.

A slight breeze kept the weather per­fect for Satur­day morn­ing cricket as Ma­reeba bat­ted first and the two open­ers made them­selves at home, fac­ing 40 balls to­gether, the part­ner­ship made 28 runs be­fore Green re­tired and Carls­son was caught by Tex McDowall off a ball from Finn Stan­away (1/22 off 3).

The next two Ma­reeba bats­man were not go­ing any­where in a hurry ei­ther, un­til top scor­ing bat­ter Martin was brought down by bowler Daniel David­son (1/7 off 3) and a tidy catch from Levi Trewick(0/1 off 3). Keel Sorensen (1/9 off 3) and Reuben Al­li­son (0/4 off 3) teamed up to take the last wicket of the day from the Golds, Ma­reeba fin­ish­ing on 3 for 110.

Bat­ting ac­tion from the Mud­dies was varied; top scorer of the day was Deu­ble on 13 off 18 balls.

Four of its bats­men went out for a duck, but new­comer Bray­den Wall showed he has what it takes, hit­ting a nice bound­ary ball be­fore be­ing bowled by one of Ma­reeba’s spin­ners.

Stay­ers of the day were Josh Ed­ward and Sorensen who both re­tired af­ter their first 40 balls and were able to come back in at the end and bat out a few more of our overs. Ma­reeba en­joyed a clear win with Mud­dies all out (10 for 60) at the 29th over.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Josh Ed­ward on be­ing se­lected for the Cricket Far North Un­der-12 de­vel­op­ment squad and best of luck to the other boys on the team who are still in­volved in tri­als for the older grade rep teams.
