Wamuran’s winning form
WAMURAN-STANLEY River had a successful return to the cricketing arena as a series of one-day fixtures took place last Saturday.
The senior matches were scheduled to last two days but one-day matches took place instead, after play was abandoned on January 8 due to wet weather.
Successful run chase in Division 4
Wamuran-Stanley River’s Division 4 team had a comfortable seven-wicket win on home soil after dismissing Caloundra for 95 in 32.5 overs.
The visiting team slipped from 3/46 to 6/46, and later lost its eighth and ninth wickets on 73 before a 22-run last wicket partnership took place.
The hosts achieved the winning runs from the first ball of the 26th over in the run chase.
A close finish in Division 6
