Great bowling effort but Maryvale suffer first loss

CRICKET: A hat-trick by Will Gordon and five-wicket bag to Kieran Bourke wasn't enough as Maryvale Condamine lost by 56 runs to Redbacks at Slade Park on Sunday.

The Redbacks win was set up by 62 from Coen Slatter and 46 by Jamie Saunders in a score of 160.

Kieran Bourke dismissed Saunders and took four other wickets for figures of 5-37 off five overs after he was seventh bowler used.

"I have taken four wickets in a innings six or seven times and had a catch droppped once to deny me five wickets so this is my first five-wicket bag,” he said.

Gordon took 3-3 off four overs, including three wickets in successive balls, one bowled and two LBW.

Maryvale lost the wicket of Pat Bourke in the first over to a slips catch off Sam Waetford and never looked like making the runs.

Michael Bourke top score with 26, Jason Steketee made 24 and Tom Bourke 20 in a score of 104.

Waetford took 4-18 off eight overs and captain Tyhe Clarkson 3-19 off seven overs after initially planning to sit out the game. Slatter capped a great day with 2-29 off five overs with the ball.
