Atherton go down by six wickets

IT was another loss for Atherton Cricket at the weekend, with a lack of players costing them their game against the Cassowary Coast Cyclones in Tully.

After winning the toss, Atherton went in to bat, with Alex Nassar, in fine form, making 70 runs and captain for the day, Logan Poggioli checked in with 42.

Atherton’s winning start was quick to collapse, leaving Atherton with 178 runs.

Captain Tom Boorman said that for such a young team, making 178 runs was a huge achievement and he hoped it would encourage them to keep pushing through.

“We have such a young team and it was a really good effort,” he said.

“The Cyclones made the runs pretty easily in the end, making 182, and in the end, we lost by six wickets.”

This weekend, Atherton is set to host “fan favourite” Rovers at Loder Park.

Just across the road, Mareeba lost their game against Norths at Griffiths Park.

Mareeba is set to play the Cyclones this weekend at Borzi Park.
