Mud­dies take points vs Bar­ron

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

UN­ABLE to se­cure an out­right win, the Un­der 16 Mud­dies took 1st in­nings points to see them slot into 5th place on the two day lad­der. Fi­nal scores were Mud­dies 119 and 7/99 (dec) to Bar­ron 43 and 4/153.

With the Mud­dies re­sum­ing at 2/20, cap­tain Daniel David­son needed his boys to ac­cu­mu­late a to­tal where he could safely de­clare, but leave enough overs re­main­ing to bowl out Bar­ron.

Nathan Deu­ble and Nick Raynor picked up where they left off last week be­fore both be­ing caught for 9 from 29 and 9 from 43 re­spec­tively.

Ryan Doble con­tin­ued his form from the pre­vi­ous week, blast­ing four bound­aries be­fore be­ing caught be­hind on 28 from 30 balls.

Tom Walken chimed in with a valu­able 10 from 22 but Reuben Al­li­son was un­lucky to fall first ball with­out scor­ing. When the dec­la­ra­tion came the not out bats­men were Vin­cent Killeen on 9 from 16 and Liam Clacherty who belted 8 from 7 balls.

Vice-cap­tain Ryan Doble again opened the bowl­ing and fin­ished with 0 for 18 from his five overs.

The first wicket fell in the sev­enth over when Liam Clacherty clean bowled one of the Bar­ron open­ers.

Liam con­tin­ued his good form with the ball to fin­ish with 1 for 10 from his five overs. Vin­cent Killeen took care of the other Bar­ron opener, also bowled, to fin­ish with 1 for 20 from his five overs.

The Bar­ron cap­tain, and wicket-keeper, then dug in and put to­gether a strong part­ner­ship be­fore the cap­tain slashed at a ball that darted off the seam and found the edge.

Keeper-cap­tain Daniel David­son com­pleted a div­ing catch to give Nick Rayner the wicket on the last ball be­fore drinks, which saw Nick fin­ish with 1 for 8 from his five overs.

When Nathan Deu­ble picked up the wicket of the Bar­ron keeper the out­right win looked in site for the Mud­dies, how­ever an­other solid part­ner­ship from the Bar­ron bats­men saw out the re­main­der of the match with the Mud­dies tak­ing first in­nings points only with no out­right points awarded.

The As­tute Fi­nan­cial Mud­dies Un­der 16s are on the road next week play­ing Rovers at En­deav­our Park in a two-day match which will be a real test based on Rovers’ cur­rent form.
