Girls take re­gional champs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS | @SCHOOL -

WONGA Beach State School Girls Team took out the Re­gional Cham­pi­onship for the Wool­worth T20 Cricket Com­pe­ti­tion.

The boys won three of their first four games and had to face Yungaburra in the fi­nals.

Yungaburra proved too good the for boys and they fin­ished the day as run­ners-up.

The Girls team won their pool games all bar one against Ather­ton and made it through to fi­nals based on their im­pres­sive run rate. They then had to face off in the fi­nals against Ather­ton again and worked hard to keep their score low with great field­ing and bowl­ing.

The girls ended up de­feat­ing Ather­ton by more than 30 points and will now head off to the State Cham­pi­onships later in the year.

The girls will con­tinue to train hard as they have their eyes firmly on the ul­ti­mate prize – a trip to the MCG for the Na­tional Ti­tles.
