Colts convincing in winning one-day final
COLTS have taken the first Tweed District second grade cricket title of the season beating Pottsville in a hard-fought one-day final at Les Cave Oval, Murwillumbah on Saturday.
But with the focus back on the twoday games this week, there is little time to celebrate with the South Tweed team having plenty of work ahead of them.
The one-day champions are currently fourth in the two-day competition and will need to win their final two matches - beginning with this weekend's game against top team Terranora - to improve their position.
But the team is showing plenty of good form after the one-day series.
Pottsville won the toss and elected to bat in the final scoring 9-191 off 40 overs with the big-hitting Shane Robinson slamming up 66 (including a monstrous six over the top of the trees towards the highschool oval), Dave Glynn 43 and Tom Melville, a valuable 40.
All-rounder Ian Rowlings took 3-23 for Colts while Martin Mawson (1-25 off eight) was economical.
In reply Colts took 31 overs to achieve the total finally getting there with the loss of just seven wickets.
Captain Matt Bedford led the scoring with 46. Colts now play Terranora at Bilambil with Cudgen facing Pottsville at Reg Dalton.
