Lanskey and Grogan float Bundaberg's sinking ship

THERE were some tense moments at Salter Oval yesterday as Bundaberg scraped home over Gympie to secure a place in the under-19 Wide Bay cricket grand final.

After bowling Gympie out for 136 with Dean Krebs continuing his impressive form with three wickets Bundaberg which at times looked shaky overhauled the total with three wicket and 11 overs to spare.

Ben Lanskey (37) and Steven Grogan (36) were the best of Bundaberg's batsman in the teams 7-137.

The run chase got off to a terrible start with Callum Stitt and Boyd Smith falling for a duck; but Grogan and Lanskey steadied the ship to ensure the win.

Bundaberg coach Gary Holloway said he was nervous at times but the players worked hard after the tough start.

"Callum (Stitt) played a bit of reckless shot and Boyd (Smith) was caught with a great catch so the start of the run chase was not good," Holloway said.

"But the boys consolidated and we were able to come away with the win that gives us a place in the grand final."

With the ball Dean Krebs bowled with typical economy only having 15 scored off his bowling from nine overs.

Stitt, Blake Rimmington and William Holloway took two wickets each.
