Norths claim back-to-back Division 2 titles

CRICKET: This year really was the year of dominance for the Norths cricket team.

After claiming their first Division 1 title in 20 years their Division 2 side joined them on Sunday at the top.

Claiming back-to-back titles they defeated Isis by 95 runs.

It is the first time one Bundaberg side has held the top two trophies since The Waves in 2013/14.

Batting first the win was set up by a 121 run stand from Damian Turner and Andrew McKay as the side made 266 from 50 overs.

Turner making an unbeaten 76 as he combined in the final six overs with brother Dan Salta for a 48 run stand.

In a man of the match display Turner then took two wickets with the ball as Isis made 171 in reply.

Despite a half century from Adrian Goddard the Isis side couldn't build partnerships as they lost too many early wickets.

In the other match in Division 3 the Brothers Dads and Lads upset Norths to prevent a clean sweep in all divisions.
