Coorparoo had a mixed start to Sub-District Cricket Round Eight last Saturday.
The A1s (in their round seven game) had a big day in the field against Gold Crest at Underwood Park. Batting first, Gold Crest scored 7/231 in 68 overs. Michael O’Keefe was the best bowler with 2/33.
The B3s are in a tight battle against the Brisbane Saints at Whites Hill Reserve (Ray Little Turf Oval). Batting first, Coorparoo was dismissed for 95 (captain Steve Pidcock 34, Nitin Kashyap 24), then reduced the Saints to 6/46, still 49 runs behind, with Kashyap taking 4/24.
The C4s need 99 more runs to defeat West Brisbane on first innings at Bellbowrie Sports (Oval 2). Bowling first, Coorparoo dismissed West Brisbane for 135, with four bowlers taking two wickets each (Declan Killian 2/9, captain Marc Fidler 2/20, Ross Freiberg 2/24, Charlie Wilkinson 2/29). Coorparoo reached 0/36 at stumps.
The first day of the B1s game against Wellers Hill was abandoned due to rain. A 35 over-a-side game will be played next Saturday at Brisbane State High Sports Complex (Oval 2).
Sub-District Cricket Round Eight concludes next Saturday.
