The under 12’s played their first game against MSW and started off exceptionally taking 4 wickets inside the first 15 overs to have MSW in trouble at 4/50. From there MSW consolidated to end their first 25 overs on 5/95. The boys went into bat with the momentum in their favour. However some good fielding and tight bowling saw the boys fall to 4/31 off 15. They eventually ended up 7/85 at the end of their 25, with Nash and Perry at the crease.

The boys picked up where they left off grabbing another early pole just after the break. Although that was the only highlight for a while as the MSW batters punished some loose bowling to finish on 6/230 of 50 overs. Sonny Harvey been the pick of the bowlers with 4/36 off 10.

Faced with the uphill task of chasing the runs the boy’s confidence never waved and they believed they could do it. Nash and Perry proceeded to pounce on anything loose and before you knew it that total was getting closer and closer. Perry eventually departed for a well made 33. This brought Hudson Bourne to the crease. Him and Nash both scoring freely the win was in sight for the first time today. Needing 10 off the last over Eamon Zutt stepped up to hit the 3rd ball for six to put us within 2 with Marcel hitting the winning runs two balls later. A win to remember for the boys! Some great knocks by Hudson Bourne 43 and Nash Wilson 36 to help us get over the line.

A challenging day unfolded at the office as Sunshine Coast won the toss once again, opting to field against Darling Downs. Eager to enhance their fielding skills, our boys showcased remarkable teamwork in the first session, with all bowlers contributing wickets and putting us in a promising position.

Facing the batting challenge, it proved to be a demanding day for the team. Hudson’s standout performance, scoring 30 runs, was a highlight in the face of adversity.

After Darling Downs reached our total, they decided to play a T10 match to conclude the day. This provided our team with valuable playing time, a strategic move to prepare for the upcoming days. Bowling out DD for 54, our boys confidently chased down the target with overs to spare.

This small victory has instilled a positive mindset, propelling the team forward with optimism for the rest of the tournament.

Sunshine Coast took on the Bears, starting the game with the bat after winning the toss. Henry and Sonny started the innings strongly, frequently hitting boundaries. Despite Henry’s challenging LBW dismissal, Sonny and Ryder forged a commendable partnership, securing a solid first innings. The second inning had its ups and downs, but Matty and Marcel concluded it stylishly with a partnership that propelled our score beyond 200.

The team showcased a formidable presence on the field today. Vocal and skillful, every player contributed to our success, exemplified by Huddy’s remarkable run-out. Eamon demonstrated excellence behind the stumps, and like no other team Sunshine Coast used everyone in their bowling attack.

This win has given the boys a top 4 finish and a shot at Gold Coast tomorrow in the semi final.

The sunny coast boys took on Gold Coast in the semi final. It started well with Ryder winning his 4th toss in a row and electing to bat. After a watchful start from Sonny and Henry to see off the new ball the boys looked to up the tempo. Unfortunately a consistent flow of wickets meant the boys could never quite get away, been bowled out for 114.

The boys knew they had to start well with the ball to be a chance. To which they did taking an early wicket through Ben Cleary. Gold Coast then consolidated but the boys didn’t give in. They fought hard right to the end taking 3 late wickets with one a brilliant run out from the boundary from Matt Wheeler.

It wasn’t meant to be today for the boys as they were just outplayed by a better team on the day. We now face SEQ tomorrow in the 3rd place play off.
