Mundubbera's juniors peg Gayndah back

MUNDUBBERA has clawed one back on Gayndah's junior cricketers, cruising to a four wicket win with three overs to spare in Mundubbera on the weekend.

With several Gayndah players running late to the fixture, Mundubbera was kind enough to let Gayndah bat first.

Opening the batting, Jack Huth stroked a masterful 39, while Damien Davina supported him well.

Bowling for Mundubbera, Connor Adams kept it tight and proved a constant threat to take two for nine from his four overs. He was backed up by Connor Maeyke, who took one for 12 from three and Piper Eastcott, who delivered a parsimonious spell of zero for five off her three.

Gayndah batted their full 25 overs to end on 119.

Maeyke was dismissed early in Mundubbera's innings, after smiting a six his second ball, but Lane Beutel and Eastcott batted watchfully to post 13 and 14 respectively, both being dismissed by Archie Webster.

However, Adams returned from his sharp bowling display to stroke 19 and Caleb Reinke 22 as Mundubbera cruised to their target with three overs spare.

Gayndah will host the final match of the season on Saturday, March 9.
