Young guns impress at hit-out

CRICKET: Spin kings Mason McGlone and Vasili Exarhos starred for Gympie at the Wide Bay under-19 championships at the weekend.

Gold XI spinner Exarhos, took impressive figures of 6/79 but it was McGlone's 6/10 that really stood out in Gympie's convincing victory over South Burnett.

Played under a new format, Gympie was forced to select an extended squad for the championships to compete in two 100-over matches, as well as a T20.

Gympie was also solid against traditional rivals Fraser Coast, with local batsman Nick Kelos slashing his way to 104 and Brad Anderson contributing with a quick-fire 51 which left the Maryborough based side all out for 245.

Gympie responded with 180 after a strong contribution from Andre Cave and Exarhos, who made 72 and 30 respectively.

In other representative news, Gympie's under-16, 14 and 12 teams played the Fraser Coast on Sunday with the Graeme Bembrick coached U12 side recording a win.

Senior Gympie fixtures will be on hold again this weekend, recommencing on October 26 to accommodate Goodchild and under-19 rep commitments.
