Mareeba takes win
MAREEBA second grade has claimed just their second win of the season after they faced off against Norths at Borzi Park on Sunday.
After winning the toss, Mareeba decided to have the first crack and sent Norths in to bat where some excellent fielding saw them run out opener Aidan Firman early.
Rowan Foxwell continued his form with the ball in hand, leading the Mareeba attack and claiming four wickets for 43 off his eight overs.
Norths steadied in their middle order as a few 20s and 30s pushed the visitors to a decent total of 161.
Mareeba’s batsmen never looked worried as they got busy chasing down the total with openers Will
Hanlon and Brendan Falvo making a 64 run opening stand before Hanlon fell for 31.
Captain Brendan Payne joined Falvo at the crease as the opener continued on and eventually made 58 off 95 balls.
It was then Payne’s turn to score some runs as he quickly went about scoring 44 off 59 as Brandon Green also made a handy 22 to push Ma-reeba over the line.
This marks only the second win of the season for Mareeba’s second grade side as they sit on just 18 points, six points above bottom of the ladder team Cassowary Coast.
Mareeba will now face off against Atherton at Loder Park next Sunday.
