Strong start for Wamuran-Stanley River in Div 4
HOST team Wamuran-Stanley River made a strong start to its Division 4 cricket contest with Coolum before the visitors mounted a comeback in the two-day match.
Joshua Burton (5/20) and John Nugent (2/6) were the pick of the bowlers as Coolum succumbed for just 50 in 25 overs, before Wamuran-Stanley River reached 4/107 in 26 overs and then declared its innings closed.
Opening batters Damon Murphy (54) and Aaron Phillips (40) provided the bulk of the scoring although the hosts faltered after reaching 0/71, with Glenn Weier bowling out the first four Wamuran-Stanley River batters.
Coolum lost an early wicket in its second innings when Burton claimed his sixth wicket of the day, but the visiting team recovered to 1/60 at the close of play, leading by three runs.
