CRICKET

WITH num­bers down due to the fes­tive break­fast ap­proach­ing, War­riors, Cane­cut­ters and Val­leys com­bined to play a 20 over a side scratch match on the weekend.

War­riors got off a flyer thanks to a deadly spell of bowl­ing from Aaron Re­gan (3/8 from 4 overs).

Fel­low open­ing bowler Chris Wren (1/24 from 4 overs) chimed in with a wicket and with only three wick­ets left, Cane­cut­ters were in trou­ble be­fore Dale Men­gel (37) com­bined with David Vick­ers (24) in a 54 run part­ner­ship.

Vick­ers went for one hit too many to be out by David Hob­son (2/26 from 4 overs).

Vet­eran Craig Brown pro­duced a gutsy 16 not out be­fore Dale Men­gel was caught on the bound­ary from a Hay­den De­boni (1/2 from 0.3 overs) to see Cane­cut­ters all out for 98 af­ter 18 overs.

War­riors bats­man were keen to end the run chase as soon as pos­si­ble with a bril­liant 55 run open­ing part­ner­ship be­tween Hay- den Rus­sell (33) and Harry Quod (24).

The pair were on fire be­fore a David Vick­ers (1/29 from 4 overs) slower ball saw Rus­sell out caught and bowled.

Aaron Re­gan (30 not out) fol­lowed up his bowl­ing spell with some great bat­ting, but af­ter a su­perb bowl­ing spell from Si­mon Vick­ers (3/4 from 4 overs) an un­likely vic­tory for Cane­cut­ters was a pos­si­bil­ity.

De­spite the fight back the win­ning runs were brought up in the 15th over to see War­riors win­ners by three wick­ets.

Cricket fixtures will take a break over the fes­tive sea­son with the first game back on Satur­day, Jan­uary 17.

On Jan­uary 10-11 the Watts Shield will be held in Bowen with Proser­pine look­ing at field­ing at least two teams in this two day twenty/20 tour­na­ment.

Any­one in­ter­est­ing in play­ing can con­tact Craig Brown (4945 1983) or Aaron Re­gan (0400 688 417) for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.
