Seven-a-side cricket fires
THERE were plenty of sixes, fours and laughter at the seven side cricket competition held at the One Mile Ovals on Sunday.
Gympie Cricket treasurer Scott McIntosh said the event was a great success, with 20 teams taking part and more than $3000 raised for the Gympie Cricket Association.
McIntosh thanked everyone involved especially sponsors: Cooloola Civil Construction, Melco, Gympie Regional Realty, Goodyear Jewellers, Irwin Fruit and Vege, and Sportspower.
He said the day ran very smoothly and there was plenty of big hitting on show for spectators.
In A grade Brady Bunch defeated Sportspower in the final by two runs.
Drunken Misfits defeated Laminex Lizards in B Grade, in C Grade Cougars defeated Mary Valley Staggs while Amamoor Scrubbers got beaten by Lame Ducks in the D grade final.
Four individual awards were given out on the day with Steve Brady hitting the most sixes with eight, Joel Kennedy the most catches with five, Peter Moessenger the most wickets with seven, and Andrew Button most runs with 98.
McIntosh said the cricket season proper would hit off this weekend with the first 20twenty fixtures starting Saturday.
