GUSTY winds didn't altogether phase Wayne Walsh and Rick Mischlewski at the Remembrance Day Saturday Meeting.

Although past Saturdays had been clearly warmer, sudden bursts and wind direction changes kept most shooters on their toes with scratchy results from the 600 meter mound.

Conditions didn't stop visitor Bernie Nagan from having a shoot with his .308 scoped hunting rifle though, shooting first round only.

Neil Atwood was hot on Rick's tail in the first round but dropped a few more than his usual in the second.

Unpredictable wind conditions challenged Norbit Schmidt and Carl Read whilst Chris Tsang still struggled to find form in his setup in Target Rifle with the Club Mauser.

Everyone Welcome.
2. Muddies Cricket Club Under 16 2017-11-14 under_16.jpg
JUNIOR MUDDIES LOSE 'NIPPER' BITER FINDING themselves to be one of the luckiest junior cricket teams around by getting in another game on turf at The Mud Pit, the Under 12 Muddies had victory stolen from them on the second last ball of the day by the Mareeba Bandits, losing 159 to 158.

The opportunity to play on turf again looked to be in disarray when a 7am phone call from groundsman Keith Taylor relayed the information that the pitch covers had leaked and there were wet patches all over the wicket. Using up previously stored good luck and a bit of local knowledge, the decision was made to persist on the turf. Using his wealth of experience, Keith set about drastically drying the pitch with the super-sopper and blending in grass clippings to put together a good looking wicket.

The Muddies batted first and looked at odds with Daniel ‘long legs’ Twomey and tiny tot Finn Vikionkorpi looking like the off couple. The first ball of the day to Finn made a lovely ‘squish’ sound and bounced slowly off the pitch. However, the cricket gods must have changed their plans as this was the only ball of the day to do this. The pitch got better and better and better and so did the cricket.

The pace was slow to start, but once settled, Finn and Daniel started scoring freely. Finn hit the first boundary of the day and quickly followed it up with a second. Not to be outdone, Daniel then put a 4 away. However, trying to get one to sail over the rope on the full, Daniel found himself caught on the boundary to a diving down low catch even the Aussie cricket team would be proud of. Angus joined his little bro but quickly departed after punching a slow rising ball straight back to the bowler. Lachlan entered the arena and tried to put away a short ball but picked out the back of leg fielder first ball. Caleb Wilson then joined Finn at the crease showing solid defence. Finn retired off his 25 balls allowing Rudra Patel some time in the middles. Their partnership was short though when Rudra found the top edge and was caught.

Alex Max McDonald then spent an age at the crease showing off the hard work he has been putting in. Caleb and Alex were working well before Caleb called a run but fell short of his crease to be run out. Mr Defence Eli Smith (taking after his father no doubt) provided great support for Alex. Alex retired and Eli was caught 2 balls short of retirement bringing and Banjo Jenkins and Hamish Batterham. These two combined to boost the score from 6 / 75 in the 18th over to move the Muddies to 7 / 158 in the 27th over. Banjo was solid and turned the strike over well allowing Hamish’s free flow of runs to continue. Another quick fire 50 from Hamish and a few more singles from Finn after Banjo was caught saw the end of the Muddies innings at 7 / 158.

The Bandits started very positively with the usually economic Twomey going for 12 in the first over. Daniel then showed his experience and stemmed the runs in his 2nd. Rudra suffered the same fate as Daniel’s first over though, with the batsmen finding the boundaries by picking off balls on the stumps and somehow getting them to the boundary. The dynamic duo of Finn and Banjo then slowed the scoring. Banjo showed the danger of having a swinging left arm bowler in the team again knocking over the stumps with a beautifully shaped delivery. Hamish showed what good backyard cricket practice is all about, bowling with a redeveloped action that reaped rewards, claiming the 1-3 from his 2 overs. Eli then backed this up bowling with great lines and length to claim his first bowled wicket. The recent pressure saw the batsmen push for runs only to see Hamish claim 2 good run outs off Eli’s bowling. Lachlan Batterham then displayed great lines and length bowling the first of his 2 maidens for the day, 0-0 from 2 overs. Alex and Caleb had good first overs but found their second a bit tougher. The Bandits were 5/87 at drinks and the game was in the balance. The second half of the innings again saw tight bowling and great fielding form the young Muddies applying heaps of pressure the Mareeba team but wickets were proving tough to get. Angus was bowling with some real zing after his stint at keeper supporting the early work of the other bowlers. However, with 5 overs left, the Bandits needed just 19 runs for victory. Finn bowled tightly only going for 2 runs.

Angus then had 4 hit from the first ball but recovered to only have 1 more (plus a bye) scored from the over. Banjo then showed his skills bowling a maiden over in the 3rd last over: the Bandit still needing 11 runs to win from 2 overs. Eli bowled with nice straight lines restricting the batsmen’s scoring options to singles. However, they swung through the line and found the boundary hitting 10 from the over. With the scores tied up going into the last over, Lachlan Batterham, who had the figures of 0-0 from 2 overs, took the ball going for his third straight maiden. His line and length then continued through bowling dot, dot, dot, dot. The intensity on the field was electric and both teams were on the edge of their seats. The second last ball then saw the shot go to some slightly open space. The Muddies nippers came out and converged on the ball but the Bandits scampered through just in time scoring the winning run. With one ball left, Lachlan exacted his revenge, knocking over the Bandits castle, seeing the Muddies go down 7 / 158 to Mareeba’s 6 / 159.
3. Muddies Cricket Club T20 competition 2017-11-10 See below: FRIDAY saw the 4th round of the Maranos fuel T20 comp played and it was the NQ homes under 16 muddies taking on the NFP's.

Muddies won the toss and batted first but some tight bowling by julian 0 for 2 and fitzy 0 for 3 tied down the muddies batsman but three of their batsman found the middle and made some runs vinny with 14, charlie 22 and nick 19 made a total of 127 which gave their bowlers hope.

But when the openers for NFP started hitting sixes from the go they were hard to control the run rate. Andy made 11 off 4 balls, tane 20 and adrian with 27. But matt thought it was an audition for the ashes squad with 14 off 11 overs but the NFP's made it with 2 overs to spare.

Next game saw camo's up against the royals and it was the camo's batting first and it saw their top 4 batsman all make double figures clayton and ben 25,wade 19 and earl 16 mass a small total of 117. the best bowlers for the royals was john caswell 1 for 10 off 2 and daniel 2 overs 1 for 13.

With a small total to defend the camo's started out well with nabbing the openers in the first two overs one in which was bowled shrimpton (son) caught shrimpton(dad). Wes started to get the game moving along with 3 fours in a row and a total of 24 but the wickets kept falling around him due to some great bowling by peter 1 for 3 mark 2 for 7 and anthony 1 for 7 from 2 overs. with the game in the balance it rained and the covers had to be applied and both teams will walk away with points.

Friday the 17th November will see the Muddies u16 take on the camokazies at 530 and the falcons take on NFP at 730 these games are the last round games before the finals so there is a few spots to be gained for a couple of teams.

It was good to get the 3rd round of the Maranos Fuel T20 comp played on Friday, with the comp having a washed out weekend and round bye.

The first game saw the NQ homes under 16 muddies take on the Fourmile falcons who were only fielding 9. They opened the batting with top 5 batsmen all scoring over 20 runs with kane frieling top scoring with 28 and Kenny nyko on 25. They a massed a total of 152 off their alotted 15 overs. The muddies let themselves down with a few drop catches but it was Vincent kileen with 2 overs 1 for 13 and ashton 1 for 11 were best with the ball.

But the muddies didn’t disgrace themselves with the bat they made 119 off 15 overs with vinny 23 and nick Rayner 32 getting them there. The falcons bowlers were best served by alex bendle 3 for 14 off 2 and Declan Kelly 2 for 5 off 2.

The second game saw the royals take on the nfp’s royals opting to bat first saw john revel score 23 and john caswell 20 in the royals total of 138 off 15. But probably shouldn’t of made that many with 5 catches going down and all pretty simple chances. Plus some double bounce balls from one nfp player which couldn’t be scored off.

The nfp’s opening batsman set the platform for the run chase by both making 23 and 24 and retiring with Julian Harrold hitting two sixes in a row one clearing the afl fence. Jase Radley made a quick 10 off 4 balls and captain fitz continued his good form with 14 not out to reach the target with 2 overs to spare.

This Friday the 10th of November at 530 sees nfp take on the muddies and the 7:30 game is camokazies take on royals.
