Warwick's junior cricketers await visit of Lockyer Valley

CRICKET: Darling Downs inter-city games take centre stage tomorrow, as Warwick's up-and-comers compete in their second game of the season.

The U12s and U14s will fly the flag at Queens Park, with their games against Lockyer Valley starting at 9am.

The U12s are looking to continue their good start to the season after a first-up win against Western Downs, in which their top order performed well, in line with an economical effort from the bowlers.

The U14s side will be without the services of captain Josh Hagenbach, vice-captain Morgan Bourke and wicketkeeper Liam Vickers.

These three players will represent the U13s Darling Downs at the state carnival in Southport next week.

In their absence, Hugh Inmon will take up captaincy duties with Tom Doherty as vice-captain, in a team featuring five players from Stanthorpe.

This weekend also marks the end of junior cricket for the year. The U11s play at Glennie Heights, the U13s at East School and the U16s at Queens Park.

Games will re-commence in the first term next year, with players still able to join a team.

In Condamine Cup cricket, a number of teams will be looking to bounce back from the previous round.

Allora will be raring to go after their match against Inglewood was forfeited, but they will have to be at their best, coming up against a Rascals side full of confidence.

Rascals won their game against Sovereign by 97 runs last week thanks to a stunning innings from Joe Morris, who led the weekend's scoring with 80 runs.
