Bowling leads team to cricket carnival win

CRICKET: Class bowling paved the way for Maryvale Condy to win its third Condamine Sports Club Warwick Australia Day Cricket Carnival.

Maryvale Condy batted first in the competitive grand final on Sunday afternoon to post 6-164, Pat Bourke hitting 36 and Tom Bourke 30.

Chasing 165 for victory, Bears/Small's XI didn't recover from the loss of the wicket of Josh Rutledge who hit four successive sixes in 37.

Bears/Small's XI finished with 8-117 at the end of 20 overs.

Michael Bourke took 3-26 and Will Gordon 2-16 to pave the way for a Maryvale Condy victory.

Fergus Connolly impressed with some economical overs and has a victory in his first carnival after coming from England to Australia to work at Scots PGC College in the past year.

While it was strong bowling which won Maryvale Condy the final, the fact two of their bowlers won awards at the carnival speaks volumes for the side's attack.

Mitch Darton had the most wickets in the carnival, 12, and Kevin Bourke won the bowling average prize with four wickets for 20 off seven overs in three matches for an average of five runs per wicket.

Maryvale has now won 2005, 2010 and 2018 carnivals.

Rutledge was player of the final.

Ring-Ins from Casino were third and Stunned Mullets fourth.
