Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE As­tute Fi­nan­cial Mud­dies Un­der 16s 2017 cam­paign kicked off in round 6 which con­sisted of two T20 games to be played on the same day in Cairns. The first game saw the boys with an au­to­matic win af­ter Ather­ton for­feited due to a lack of in­ter­est. The sec­ond game saw the Mud­dies, 7/162, win con­vinc­ingly against Mul­grave 6/94.

A sec­ond for­fei­ture looked likely when Mul­grave ar­rived with only eight play­ers un­til the Mud­dies lotto draw saw Ryan Stan­away and Nick Rayner as­sist­ing Mul­grave to even up the num­bers.

Mud­dies open­ing bowlers Ryan Doble, 1/21 and Reuben Al­li­son, 1/4, kept things tight and gave the Mul­grave open­ers a hard time.

Con­nor and Cur­tis White were both eco­nom­i­cal tak­ing 0/5 and 1/9 from their re­spec­tive two overs. Tom Har­vey opened with a wicket maiden and fin­ished with the im­pres­sive fig­ures of 1/4 from his two overs. Nathan Deu­ble, 0/8, bowled one over be­fore elect­ing to save his knee from fur­ther pun­ish­ment.

Liam Clacherty steamed in pick­ing up a vi­tal wicket and fin­ished with 1/25 from his three overs. Tex McDowall 0/9 was un­lucky not to pick up a wicket from his one over. Vin­cent Killeen bowled three overs and fin­ished with 1/9 af­ter pick­ing up the wicket of team mate and Mul­grave sub­sti­tute Nick Rayner who made 9 from 9 balls. Ryan Stan­away, also sub­sti­tut­ing for Mul­grave, top scored for them with 22.

Mud­dies open­ers Liam and Reuben started steadily be­fore Reuben was bowled in the fourth over mak­ing 7 from 15 balls faced. Liam showed the Mul­grave bowl­ing at­tack no re­spect smash­ing two bound­aries be­fore be­ing bowled on 17 from 18 balls.

Cur­tis looked in good touch with a nice bound­ary be­fore be­ing caught be­hind for 4 off the bowl­ing of Nick Rayner who fin­ished with 1/11 from three overs.

Af­ter tak­ing two catches as wicket keeper, cap­tain Daniel Davidson made a classy 33 from 24 balls in­clud­ing four 4’s and a 6. Ryan Doble started well smash­ing a 6 off the sec­ond ball.

Vin­cent started steadily fac­ing eight dot balls be­fore tak­ing to the Mul­grave bowlers and re­tir­ing not out on 56 from 32 balls in­clud­ing six 4’s and three 6’s. Tom did not trou­ble the scor­ers, and Nathan blasted an un­beaten 28 from 14 balls in­clud­ing four 4’s and a six.

Tex made 1 from 4 be­fore fall­ing vic­tim to the bowl­ing of Ryan Stan­away which saw Con­nor as the other not out bats­men on 0 from four balls at the end of the Mud­dies 20 overs.

The boys have a bye next week be­fore host­ing Ma­reeba at home on Jan­uary 28. Cur­rently sit­ting fifth on the lad­der, the boys will be look­ing for a strong win over Ma­reeba to boost their points to­tal.
