Mareeba record loss to Mulgrave
CONFIDENCE is building in the Mareeba Bandit’s A-Grade team this week after a “full-on” game against Mulgrave over the weekend.
After losing the toss, Mareeba was sent to bat and quickly posted a moderate score of 90 odd.
Coach Gary Toshach said the team put in their all and took three wickets when sent to bowl.
“We did well and took three wickets thanks to Tim O’Sullivan who took his first A-Grade level wickets ever,” he said.
“Brendan Green was bowling against potentially some of the best batsmen outside of Brisbane, which tied him up ultimately, and he was dropped – we could have had four out, but we were now chasing that low score.
“The positives that came out of that is that the boys are starting to believe they can perform at an A-Grade level now.
“I am happy with the team’s performance, and now we have just got to turn it into scoring the necessary runs to challenge and beat a team.”
This weekend, Mareeba will take on Norths at Griffith Park from 3pm, focusing mainly on the top six “batting unit”, hoping to post a score against them.
