A LION hearted bowling performance from speedster, Chris Moase, wasn't enough to extend Cudgen League's LJ Hooker League cricket season for one more week following the semi-finals round over the weekend.

Cudgen batted first on day one on Saturday at Casino's Queen Elizabeth II Park and knocked up what in the end was a disappointing 186 in which Craig Wilson was a real rock in knocking up 77 and Tait Burns chipped in with an invaluable 42.

However Casino, which resumed on Sunday at 0-10, was able to crawl past the target late in the day despite the Herculean efforts of Moase.

Casino lost seven wickets in the run chase, four of which fell to the tireless Moase who sent down a marathon 35 overs, 20 of which were maidens, and finished with the superb figures of 4-37.

Cudgen skipper, Terry Wilson, said the side in the end rued a late batting collapse on Saturday and then a couple of missed catching opportunities yesterday.

"We were five down for 180 but the last five wickets fell with the addition of just six runs - another 20 or 30 runs would certainly have helped our cause," Wilson said.

Casino Cavaliers advanced to next weekend's grand-final which will be against minor premiers, Ballina Bears, at Frap Oval.

The Bears progressed by the easy route - their semi-final against Tintenbar-East Ballina was washed out.
