JUNIOR CRICKET

TWO Bowen junior cricket sides travelled to Proserpine on Sunday for the first inter-town challenge match this season.

Both clubs fielded under-10 and under-13 teams with the games resurrecting the Bowen-Proserpine rivalry.

The under-13s were allocated the turf wicket and each team faced 40 overs with players retiring after 30 balls.

Proserpine batted first and Bowen's opening bowlers Tom Watts and Mat Haworth did well to restrict the scoring opportunities for Proserpine.

Sam Camm was the top scorer on 10 runs as his team finished with 114.

The Bowen batsmen took to the turf wicket conditions easier than Proserpine and their top order really fired with Tom Watts (18), Mat Haworth (24) and Jayden Abbott (21) finding the boundary regularly.

The stand-out bowler for Proserpine was medium pacer Tim McAllister who finished with 6-21 off five overs but in the end Bowen triumphed, scoring 155.

The under-10s were allocated 30 overs a side with players retiring after 20 balls and the Bowen team batted first making 112 runs.

The best of the Proserpine bowlers were Harrison Sherrington and Max Porter with two wickets each.

Proserpine's top order came out blasting with Cooper Lane (25), Dempsey Camm (25) and Harrison Sherrington (24) making great early in-roads into the total required and at the end of the 30 overs Proserpine amassed 150 runs and came out on top.

The return bout will be held in Bowen on Saturday, November 17.
