Sparks to fly in Wests vs Valleys

WHILE the Gympie Offroad Gold XI outfit hits the road to salvage its battle against Maroochydore today, A Grade matches also resume at the One Mile Ovals.

Colts continue their clash against Harlequins while sparks continue to fly between Wests and Valleys.

Colts batted first and made 237 last weekend, resuming today with a single wicket up their sleeve.

Harlequins captain Peter Kross said he was confident heading into the second day.

“We have to be patient today and chip away without being too reckless taking any big risks,” he said.

“Our team has the talent needed to beat that total so I’m feeling good about it.”

Aside from the batting performance of Colts, the game’s result will also depend on the effectiveness of Colts’ bowling attack.

Meanwhile, Valleys resume against Wests in the second A Grade match being played, currently resting on 4 for 50.

Wests opened the batting first last weekend and made 190 from their 41 overs behind the crease.

With six wickets in hand, Valleys have the freedom to take a few risks in pursuit of Wests’ score in an effort to clinch first innings points.
