Fired-up Thunder weather storms

The Sunshine Coast Cricket Association’s Junior summer season started last Saturday.

Unfortunately, wet weather washed out two of the games but on a positive note the other two teams registered close wins.

This year the Tewantin Noosa Thunder (TNT) Cricket Club is fielding teams in the Under-10s, Under-11s, Under-12s, Under-14s and Under-15s.

The Under-12s (premiers last year in the Under-11s) and Under-15s are short of players. Any young players or parents interested in these grades should contact junior cricket coordinator Kelly Bristow on 0412 710 104 or Randall Woodley on 5447 3559.

Under-11s played Matthew Flinders College at Tewantin Sports Complex and won by six runs.TNT won the toss and scored 108 for two wickets. Top scorers were Dante Cox, 10 n.o., Harrison Lea, 8 n.o. and Max Pettit 8 n.o. Matthew Flinders batted second and opposition were contained to 5-102. The highlight of the fielding was Dante Cox throwing down the wickets twice from about 30m. Best bowlers were Mason Polchleb and Justin Latimer.

Next Saturday’s game is against Buderim at Buderim School.

Under-12s played at Cooroy. Unfortunately, rain washed out the match after 13 overs. TNT batted first for 3-63. Brayden Burke scored 12. Zac Lange and Luke Cunliffe were both 9 n.o. when the game was declared a draw. Next week’s game is against Buderim at Tewantin.
