Century delights for Redbacks’ Kurtz
CRICKET: SPECTATORS weren’t disappointed during round four of the Condamine Cup last weekend.
Teams pulled out all the stops in the high-scoring games, as Victoria Hill defeated Allora in a close encounter.
Warwick Cricket Club president Dave Walker said he was impressed with the progress of all of the teams.
“We’re seeing some high-scoring games, which is always good for those watching,” Walker said.
“Even though we missed a week due to the washout, all the teams have come back more focused.”
Walker’s game of the round was by far the Warwick Redbacks versus Sovereign, with the run down win a first for the season.
“Sovereign played really well to chase down that score,” he said.
“We also saw the first century of the season, with James Kurtz scoring 144 runs for the Redbacks.”
Despite still being down on players, last year’s premiers Maryvale managed their first win of the season.
“It was good to see Maryvale finally get a win this year,” he said.
“It’s sort of taken them a while to sort everything out.”
With the rodeo and campdraft on this weekend, the Condamine Cup will have a bye round.
Round five of the Condamine Cup will start on Saturday, November 2.
