CRICKET: In a weekend that went down to the final over, Bundaberg fell five runs short of winning the Goodchild Shield final.

Hosting the new format at Salter Oval where all four teams faced each other over the weekend in 50- and 20-over matches, Bundaberg lost the title after South Burnett defeated them on Saturday night and won a thriller on Sunday against Fraser Coast.

After making 365 from their 50 overs in their final match, South Burnett's large total was almost chased down by Fraser Coast as John Kosmedis and Marty Maloney combined for a 263-run stand.

With the Coast requiring 12 runs from the final over for victory, to hand Bundaberg the title, it fell four runs short to make 361.

Ending Bundaberg's chances of winning the title for the first time since 2009, it also created a disappointing finish to what was a strong tournament.

Starting against Fraser Coast, Bundaberg recorded one of its biggest wins in the competition as it put in a great batting and bowling display.

Bowling first on a batsman's paradise, Dean Krebs ripped through the Fraser Coast line-up to take 6/27 and bowl the opposition out for 88.

In reply, Bundaberg smashed the opposition around the park as they made 383 with Callum Stitt making 218 and combining for a stand of 217 with David Mulhall.

Following that up with a 16-run win over the President's XI on Sunday, it wasn't enough as South Burnett won what turned out to be the decider by 10 runs.

In T20, Bundaberg couldn't chase down South Burnett's 186 as 74 runs from captain Luke Owen got the Rum City to 176.
