Two tight wins for Caboolture
CABOOLTURE had a mixed bag of results in last weekend’s cricket.
In Division 2, Caboolture was all out for 123 in 39.4 overs, before home side Glasshouse reached the target with 5.2 overs to spare without losing a wicket.
Five Glasshouse bowlers shared the wickets before unbeaten half-centuries from openers Tim Taylor and Brett Milini set up Glasshouse’s landslide victory.
In Division 5, Caboolture collapsed to 83 all out before host team Palmwoods struggled to a two-wicket win, as five bowlers from each side took wickets.
Caboolture’s miserable total included 16 sundries while Palmwoods bowler Tyrone Odgers captured 4/5.
Palmwoods received 14 runs in sundries and lost regular wickets, with three Caboolture bowlers taking two wickets apiece.
The Division 7 match at Caboolture Sports Cricket Club was similarly nail-biting, with Cooroy-Eumundi Green dismissed for 74 before the hosts won by just two wickets.
Cooroy-Eumundi Green’s total included 24 sundries, with Alexlie Rose (4/12) the pick of Caboolture’s bowlers.
In reply, Caboolture was 2/47 before losing regular wickets and making hard work of the small target.
In the women’s contest in Caboolture on Sunday, the hosts made 7/110 in their 20 overs before Glasshouse Gold lost only two wickets but fell 11 runs shy of the target.
Claudia Arjun (33 not out) and Calise Bicanic (20) were the best of Caboolture’s batters.
Zoe Astbury excelled for Glasshouse Gold with 3/10 from four overs and then a score of 30 retired from 23 balls.
Alana Baartz also scored quickly for Glasshouse Gold, making 28 retired from 25 balls, but five other batters tallied just 17 runs from 75 balls.
Arjun had a good all-round game as she took 1/6 from three overs, while Shaya Hyland claimed the other wicket.
After Caboolture benefited from 34 runs in illegal bowling, Caboolture’s bowlers conceded 23 runs in illegitimate deliveries.
