Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - @SCHOOL -

SEVEN­TEEN-YEAROLDMoss­man State High School stu­dent Keel Sorensen rep­re­sented Penin­sula at the Un­der 19 Queens­land Cricket State Cham­pi­onships in Bund­aberg where he won a sil­ver medal­lion.

The Penin­sula team, made up of high school boys from Tully to Moss­man, Cairns and the Table­lands, had an out­stand­ing and very suc­cess­ful achieve­ment win­ning all of their three matches against Dar­ling Downs, Pres­i­dents XI and Capri­cor­nia from 5-7 March.

At the end of day three both the Penin­sula and South Coast teams had won all of their 3 matches.

Un­der com­pe­ti­tion pro­ce­dure the cham­pi­onship win­ner was de­ter­mined by a quo­tient cal­cu­la­tion of runs by wick­ets which gave South Coast first place po­si­tion.

Keel who also plays for the Mud­dies sec­ond Grade cricket team took 3 wick­ets over the three-day tour­na­ment.

Moss­man High School HPE teacher Ben Vikionko­rpi who coached the Un­der 19 team was very im­pressed with how the Penin­sula team per­formed as this is the first time this age group has won all of their matches.
