Mareeba notches up another win

CONTINUING their good form, Mareeba Thirds have continued their unbeaten winning streak after their recent game against United at home at Borzi Park on Sunday.

The visitors won the toss and decided to bat fi rst looking to put up a good total against the unbeaten Mareeba side. 

Some superb bowling by Mareeba constricted United to a measly total of 76 runs, well within the ballpark for Mareeba’s batting order. They set out with intent as their batters got to work chasing down United’s total, and did it with ease. 

In just 19.2 over Mareeba passed United’s total with just four wickets down, gaining double points ahead of their game against Barron this weekend. 

Mareeba Fourths didn’t prove so lucky however as they fell against the Douglas Muddies in Port Douglas on Saturday. 

After sending Douglas into bat, Mareeba failed to capitalise early and let the Douglas batters settle, helping one of their openers tick up a half century. 

It was a hard slog from then on as Mareeba slowly chipped away at the Douglas line-up until they were finally all out for 153 in the 32nd over. 

Mareeba couldn’t fi nd their feet on the crease while batting with some batsman being dismissed without troubling the score.

Those who staying soaked up a lot of balls for not a lot of reward as Mareeba was bowled out for 99 runs in 30.5 overs. 

Now fourths will face off against Barron as well at Crathern Park in Trinity Beach.
