Colts chase re­venge in lo­cal derby

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - FIND A -

Coutts-Coffs Colts will head into the lo­cal derby against Dig­gers today rid­ing high on con­fi­dence after their big win against Star Ho­tel last week­end.

The Colts and Dig­gers are be­side each other on the North Coast Cricket Council Premier League lad­der, sit­ting fourth and third re­spec­tively.

When the two sides clashed ear­lier in the NCCCPL sea­son a mon­ster bat­ting col­lapse from the Colts was a ma­jor fac­tor in the re­sult.

After Eli Fa­hey (73) and Nick Wood (81) com­bined for a third wicket part­ner­ship of 143 runs, the team un­rav­elled, los­ing their last eight wick­ets for just 30 runs.

A win for the Colts would in­ten­sify the bat­tle for third as the fi­nals near, with just five rounds of cricket left.

The Colts v Dig­gers game is be­ing played at Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park (Field 2) and be­gins at 1.30pm.
