Players put feet up for holidays
Cricket in Carnarvon goes on holidays until early next year.
Gascoyne will play two T20 games when the Rio Tinto competition resumes on February 9.
The finals of the shortened version of the game will be played the following week and results of the two matches will determine the participants.
In the final contest before Christmas, Gascoyne won the toss and elected to bat in their battle with Whalers. Gascoyne compiled 9/144 off their 45 overs.
They were in trouble early but the tail wagged to get to that score.
Jarrod March, batting at No.8, was 32 not out in a very good knock which showed he had improved since he last played in Carnarvon.
Pedro Leco, also back after being away, made a very handy 20.
Nic Tuitupou, batting at 11, chimed in with a spirited unbeaten 27, which included a lovely six.
For Whalers, Xavier van Dongen snared 4/7 off seven overs in a good display.
Improving youngster Jet Forbes took 2/17 off six overs.
Kieran Cooney, in his bowling debut, grabbed 1/12.
Whalers got the target in the 37th over to finish on 7/150.
In one of his seasons, Guiliano Condo top scored with a matchwinning 68 as opener.
He was the difference between the sides.
Only Tom van Dongen Jr with 21 and Garth Stalker, who finished unbeaten on 15, assisted him.
Gascoyne’s Michael Plumb took 3/11 off five overs.
