Tightly does it

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Un­der-16 Dou­glas Mud­dies played Mul­grave at Fuller Park in the first day of a two­dayer last Satur­day, in one of the best games the team has played all sea­son.

Cap­tain Keel Sorensen lost the toss and the Mud­dies were sent into bat. Daniel David­son and Nathan Deu­ble got off to an awe­some start with both look­ing good at the crease, be­fore Daniel was run out for 30 in the 15th over.

Ryan Doble was next and he and Nathan kept up the good work be­fore Ryan was caught for six. Levi Trewick joined Nathan and the pair con­tin­ued to bat well un­til Levi was given out, caught be­hind for 13.

Keel and Nathan bat­ted out the last five overs with Mud­dies fin­ish­ing their 32 overs with a sat­is­fac­tory score of 3/150. Nathan fin­ished with a bril­liant 66 not out.

Mud­dies open­ing bowlers Ryan and Liam bowled well, but were un­lucky not to take a wicket. It was Reuben Al­li­son who even­tu­ally got the break­through, fin­ish­ing his spell with two wick­ets for just 10 runs. Nick Rayner, Levi and Daniel also took a wicket each, and Keel picked up two wick­ets with his tidy bowl­ing.

With tight bowl­ing from the Mud­dies, Mul­grave could only man­age 81 runs in their first in­nings. The match con­tin­ues on Satur­day.

Ran­dall Smith un­der fire for Mud­dies B Grade.
