Junior cricketers play hard in the wet
PROSERPINE’S junior cricketers were able to squeeze in a round of Friday afternoon cricket despite the wet weather.
The under-14s cricket game continued with the Warriors resuming on 70 runs.
Good bowling from the Pirate’s ensured a steady fall of wickets and confined the Warriors scoring. The Warriors innings were halted at 102 runs.
The Pirates resumed their innings on 98 runs and made short work of the five runs needed to secure the victory.
Pirate’s batsmen Noel Waipape scored the winning runs just be- fore the rain swept across the Proserpine cricket fields. The under-10s were also able to make a start on their game before the rain.
The Proserpine Reds squeezed in eight overs leaving the Proserpine Blues stranded on 21 runs before play was stopped.
The rain eased enough after 5pm for the “mini cricketers” to squeeze in a quick double wicket game.
Each batting pair was allocated two overs to score their runs and apply their cricket skills. The junior cricket will continue this Friday from 4pm, weather permitting. The season is set to close on Friday, March 21.
