Un­der 12s show class to Bad Boys

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Dou­glas Mud­dies U12s trav­elled to Ma­reeba on Satur­day for their first away game of the sea­son against the Ma­reeba Bad Boys and came away with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory.

The lo­cals won the toss and in­vited the Mud­dies to field first and even the coach was im­pressed by the fields set by Cap­tain Abel, which com­bined with en­thu­si­as­tic and sharp field­ing re­stricted the Ma­reeba team to only 34 off the bat.

Like last week Ryan took hon­ours with 0 for 0 off 2 overs in­clud­ing a runout as­sist from Gus, who also took a tough catch of Abel’s bowl­ing in his first full game for the Mud­dies.

Un­for­tu­nately loose bowl­ing helped the home team with 52 sun­dries giv­ing Coach Damo plenty of am­mu­ni­tion for the next train­ing ses­sion.

Daniel T and Darcy opened the bat­ting and both re­tired.

Daniel N again got the bat­ting hon­ours with 22 from 19 balls and Bai­ley chipped in with a quick 18 from 12 balls to put the match be­yond doubt.

The sports­man­ship by both teams was very ad­mirable.

The fi­nal scores were Ma­reeba Bad Boys 86, Dou­glas Mud­dies 130.
