CNW. Circular Head Cowbiz Colts will play off against Devonport this Sunday for a place in the one-day competition’s grand final after finishing third in 2014/15.
The local U/17 side ended the season on 44 points with five wins and four losses, scoring 1441 runs, conceding a little more in 1447 and taking the same amount of wickets as they have lost (71) against opposition teams.
The Colts were given a taste of what to expect at the weekend, facing off against the Orions in their final one-day fixture with ladder positions still up for grabs.
Their opposition will hope to take a slight mental advantage heading into this weekend’s game following a narrow eight-run win; the nail-biting result only decided in the final over.
Circular Head lost the toss and was sent in to bowl, restricting the opposition to 5/175 from their 45 overs with Lochie Oates (3/32) looking the most dangerous.
In reply, Mitch Heald (28) and Carlton Heres (37) kicked off the chase, however no other batsmen were able to dig in at the crease as the Colts ran out of time and wickets in the dying stages.
The Colts’ semi-final rematch against Devonport will kick off at 10am at Devonport Oval.
