A VETERAN knock of 95 by Colts elder statesman Greg Waugh wasn't enough to save his team from defeat on Saturday.
Waugh's innings included 13 fours and one six and helped Colts reach 256 just shy of the Harlequins first innings total of 272.
Harlequins our now unbeaten in the 2009/10 Gympie cricket season.
This win follows a draw against Valleys and outright win against Wests.
Harlequin's fast bowler Craig Sorrell was the man to claim Waugh's scalp and said the Colts opener had his team mates worried.
“They (Colts) had a fair go,” Sorrell said.
“Scruffy (Waugh) was batting really well.”
“It was pretty hot and think Scruffy got a bit tired - that's how I got him out.
Waugh himself was disappointed he didn't make a century.
“I was five short of the magic three figures,” Waugh said.
“I think a lack of fitness and concentration got me out.”
Waugh said he knew he had to knuckle down and use all of his experience if Colts were going to have a chance at winning the game.
“I had a bit of luck early on, but most people who make big scores get a bit of luck.
“I was really happy with the way I was stroking the ball,” he said.
Waugh paid tribute to his team mates especially Neil McFarlane who made a half century.
“It was a good team effort,” Waugh said.
“There are not too many teams around Gympie that can chase 272 and get close,” he said.
