Atherton goes down to Norths
IT was a “disappointing game” for Atherton Cricket over the weekend, going down to Norths on their home turf.
After losing the toss, the local men were sent to bowl, setting a decent pace for the first part of the game.
But Norths fought back, creating solid partnerships that left Atherton scrambling.
“We had a little bit of resilience to get us on top for a bit by Caleb Constant, but we just kept losing frequent wickets, and it was too much of a job by the end of it,” captain Tom Boorman said.
By the end of the game, Boorman was feeling shattered and is not feeling confident as they head into round four against Cassowary Coast Cyclones this Saturday.
With several players out for development games and coaching, he said he hopes the team can pull together for the game.
“It’s a winnable game, so it is just important that we try and get as many points as possible, but I know that is going to be a big task,” he said.
Atherton will travel to Miller Oval in Tully this Saturday, with the game set to kick off at 12.30pm.
