Season hangs in balance



Cricket

LEADING Tweed District team Pottsville will put their season on the line today when they take on competition heavyweights Surfers Paradise in a one-day encounter.

Pottsville are currently fifth on the Southern Division points ladder but a loss today will place their finals hopes in jeopardy.

"We're still in the hunt for a spot in the finals but every game now for us is crucial," Pottsville skipper Josh Singh said after last week's narrow loss to Helensvale.

"Surfers will be a tough game but we'll just have to see how we go."

Surfers are third on the Northern Division ladder behind Alberton and Runaway Bay respectively.

Alberton will host Queens today while Cudgen will take on Runaway Bay.

The sixth-placed Cudgen head into the match at Sam Loxton Oval desperate to turn their season around after being trumped by Surfers last week.

Terranora, seventh on the Southern Division ladder, will take on Coomera-Hope Island while eight-placed South Tweed Colts tackle Loganholme.

In other games, Murwillumbah will take on Helensvale, Southern Division leaders Palm Beach-Currumbin play Southport-Labrador, Redlands host Mudgeeraba-Nerang and Logan Village play Broadbeach-Robina.
