Teams out to impress in final round before break

CRICKET: After amassing two victories in their past two outings, Wheatvale is out to continue its hot form into the holiday break of Condamine Cup cricket.

Last week the side picked up a 179-run victory over Allora, following from a 53-run defeat of the Rosewool Redbacks.

Today, they come up against Rascals, who are looking to bounce back after a defeat at the hands of the Redbacks last week.

They will look for another big effort from Tom Morris with the ball, who nabbed four wickets.

In today's other game, Sovereign will look to make it back-to-back wins when they face Allora at Slade Park.

Batting first last week, they could only muster 126 runs, but it proved enough after a strong display from Luke Cullen, who came away with a five-wicket haul.

Allora was in good form prior to the team's thumping at the hands of Wheatvale, but their best form is good enough to claim victory.

Tomorrow, Maryvale will aim to keep alive its unbeaten start to the season, when they face the Redbacks at Slade Park.

This game promises to take match-of-the-round honours, with the Redbacks suffering just one defeat for the season so far.

Redbacks will look for another stirring perform- ance from Ben Heppell, who scored a ton last weekend.

This week is the last round of fixtures before the break, with games in the new year from January 5.
