Atherton take runner-up

ATHERTON second grade travelled down the hill to Edmonton on Sunday for the third and final round of their cricket far north final matchup against Mulgrave Punjabi, going down in a low scoring match.

After winning the toss Atherton decided to put the home side into bat and take advantage early with the Atherton bowling line-up sharing the wickets. 

While the wickets were distributed across the bowlers Brendan Lynch was the pick taking 3/19 off 7.5 overs. 

The Mulgrave batters struggled to get going with many getting out before making double figures, the side ended up all bowled out for 104. 

With a total set Atherton looked primed to pounce and chase down the relatively easy total in quick time. 

However, the Mulgrave bowling attack bowled tight and managed to strangle the Atherton batters. 

Opener Greg Misener was the only one to make it to double figures scoring 32 runs, nearly half his teams total score of 75. 

The side was all bowled out in the 36th crowning Mulgrave Punjabi the major premiers of second grade for the season.
