Cricket sea­son ends on a high

Tablelands Advertiser - - SPORT - Bec Singh

THE Ma­reeba un­der 12s cricket side can look for­ward to their Christ­mas break af­ter end­ing the year on a win­ning note.

A fired up Ma­reeba side was go­ing to have some tough com­pe­ti­tion from a strong Ather­ton 1 team last Satur­day.

Spec­ta­tors en­joyed a great morn­ing of cricket, as the un­der 12s made a solid 152 run total.

Jake Bom­bardieri con­tin­ued his great form with the bat and was 40 not out while Bryce Finchim made 22 and backed up his form with some great bowl­ing.

A great bowl­ing at­tack had Ather­ton fall 57 runs short. Finchim took two wick­ets and Da­mon Leeds one.

The heat played its part in the un­der 14 match as an in form In­n­is­fail proved too strong.

Ma­reeba’s 2nd di­vi­sion side con­tin­ued their two-game match against In­n­is­fail. In­n­is­fail even­tu­ally de­clared at 6116.

Toby Ker­swell had an­other great game, tak­ing 2-33. One of Ma­reeba’s open­ing bats­men fell for a duck and the side was un­able to re­cover mak­ing only 58.

The un­der 12s and un­der 14s will play their next games in Jan­uary 2018. The 2nd di­vi­sion side head to Port Dou­glas to play a two-day match against Dou­glas Mud­dies on Sun­day 1pm at the Port Dou­glas Crocs AFL club on Wharf Street, Port Dou­glas.

The 3rd di­vi­sion side will come off a bye to play Tully Sugar Tigers this Sun­day at 1pm at Borzi Park.
