Far North tops the rest to win

A tough loss to Far North Queensland yesterday dashed any hopes of Wide Bay snaring the Queensland Under-12 Cricket Championships at Kendalls Flats.

The Wide Bay team had a chance to secure the title with a win yesterday but came up against a Far North Queensland team too strong for them in the final day of the competition.

Far North Queensland beat Wide Bay by 57 runs and secured the top position in the championship.

Despite the loss Bundaberg’s performers played strongly, with Jayden Grogan topscoring for his team with 27 runs, and Siena Johnson taking two wickets.

The Wide Bay team finished the tournament in fifth position.

One of the most memorable moments of the week came in North Queensland’s win over Mackay Whitsundays when Daine McDonald took a hat-trick.

McDonald ended with four wickets on the day while teammate Jesse Woods scored 58 runs with the bat.

Darling Downs South West Queensland scored a four run over Central Queensland with Daniel O’Keefe taking three wickets.

Metropolitan South West came second despite a loss to the Gold Coast yesterday.

The Gold Coast overcame a slow start to the week to finish in third place while Brisbane North rounded out the top-five in fourth.
