CRICKET: The Proserpine juniors had their last hit-out of the year on Friday, with all four grades producing good cricket.

The under-15s played a twenty20 game, with the Taipans batting first.

Jayden Lane (37) and Mat Hansen (13) were among the runs early until the Cyclone bowlers strangled Taipans' middle-order.

The tail wagged through Warwick Watts (22) and Bill O'Loughlin (8) to lead Taipans to 109 from 20 overs while the pick of the Cyclone bowlers were Regan Knight (2/19) and Howard McDonald (2/20).

The Cyclones began their run chase well, with Noel Waipape (40 not out) finding the rope numerous times.

Following Noel's lead, the middle-order lifted the score, with Regan Knight (31) and Mat Shoebridge (8) ticking the scoreboard over.

Despite good bowling from Jack Dwyer (1/7), the Cyclones blew past the Taipans score, finishing with 136 from their 20 overs.

The under-12s Proserpine Reds and Blues faced off for Friday afternoon bragging rights, with the former batting first to post 73. The run-makers for the Reds included Jack Watson (9), Corey Dwyer (6) and Drayer Smith (6).

The Blues chased down their target with ease, finishing with 89 runs thanks to big efforts from Keira Smith (11), Nick Hansen (10) and Roy Blain (9).

The under-10s formed two teams for their twenty20 fixture, with the Crocs batting first to record 53 runs.

Sebastian Eve continued his good form, scoring 18 while Calen Knight (10) and Bray Philip (7) got among the runs.

The Dingos found it difficult against the Crocs' bowling attack and were well short of their target, managing just 39.

Ted Watson (18), Ryan Linnewebber (6) and Kohan Mau (5) all scored runs.

The Have A Go mini-cricketers finished the year with a double-wicket game.

Junior cricket restarts on the first Friday after the school holidays.
