CRICKET

SATUR­DAY’S cricket match at the Proser­pine Sport­ing Com­plex saw Val­leys easy win­ners over War­riors in a low scor­ing af­fair.

Bat­ting first, War­riors strug­gled to get runs on the board thanks to tight bowl­ing from David Hob­son (3/9 from 2 overs), Si­mon Ma­homet (2/0 from 1 over) and Carl Dor­man (2/ 25 from 2 overs). Cory Lucht (18) was the only War­riors bats­man to make any in­roads into the Val­leys bowl­ing scor­ing 16 of his 18 runs from bound­aries.

Once his wicket fell, the War­riors bat­ting line-up col­lapsed, los­ing their last 6 wick­ets for only 12 runs to be all out for 59.

The small to­tal was never go­ing to be enough to de­fend, how­ever War­riors bowlers did their best to make the run chase as dif­fi­cult as pos­si­ble for the Val­leys bats­men.

Hay­den Rus­sell (3/6 from 2 overs) was the stand­out bowler for War­riors, with Shane Knight (1/16 from 3 overs) and Win­ston Poid (1/25 from 2 overs) each pick­ing up a wicket.

Val­leys’ bats­man Liam Davies (36 not out) al­most sin­gle-hand­edly scored the 60 runs needed for vic­tory, with David Vick­ers (15) and Aaron Re­gan (10 not out) of­fer­ing some as­sis­tance.

The game was over af­ter just 10 overs with Val­leys vic­tors by 5 wick­ets.

The game this Satur­day will again be de­ter­mined based on the num­ber of play­ers avail­able on the day.

New or re­turn­ing play­ers are still re­quired, with only enough num­bers for two teams so far this sea­son.

Games are on a pay as you play ba- sis, with the cost of $10 per player help­ing cover some of the run­ning costs of the Proser­pine Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion.

Games com­mence at 12.30pm each Satur­day at the Proser­pine Sport­ing Com­plex on Kelsey Creek Road.

Play­ers want­ing fur­ther in­for­ma­tion are en­cour­aged to con­tact Craig Brown on 4945 1983 or Aaron Re­gan on 0400 688 417.
