THE Under- 14 Muddies boys were looking forward to their game against Atherton South on Saturday, looking for a win.
First game back for the year was a one-dayer against Mareeba that left the boys feeling a little deflated. The following week was rained out, so a fair bit of pent up energy was brought to this game, also a one-day match (32 overs each) instead of the original twoday match planned.
Muddies managed to creep the score up to 56 before being bowled out in the 28th over. Atherton were happy with their 2 wicket and 26 run victory.
On Sunday, it was nose to nose with Atherton boys again for some of the team. Keel, Levi, Ryan, Reuben, Curtis and Tex travelled to Gordonvale to participate in the 13 and 14 years Taverner competition. It was in a double T20 format (versing Innisfail in the morning and Atherton in the afternoon) and highlights included some strong batting and wicket-keeping This game ended as a loss but only by 3 runs.
