Sweet revenge for Coast



CAP Coast top-order batsman Shaun Gilvear has been waiting six seasons to finally get first innings points over Brothers.

Playing in round nine of the Southern Star Sports Shield 2005-06 A-grade cricket season at the Yeppoon Showgrounds on Saturday Cap Coast made 125 before dismissing a 10-man Brothers team for 122.

It was sweet revenge for Cap Coast who suffered a one-run first innings loss to Brothers back in round four.

That was a game where Cap Coast played one man short.

"It's the first time since I've been playing (for Cap Coast) that we've got first innings points ? and I've been playing for six years,'' Gilvear said.

Gilvear's 57-run first innings dig was valuable in securing the points.

The 20-year-old is enjoying one of his better seasons with the bat, putting the new-found form down to "a bit more patience''.

However Gilvear said it had still been a frustrating season for Cap Coast who will miss the finals series with one round remaining.

"We've been close a lot this season and we should have been pushing the finals,'' Gilvear said.

Bluebirds will resume on Saturday against CQU Tigers facing another rescue mission. Bluebirds once again suffered a first innings collapse at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds on Saturday bundled out for just 50 ? an innings which included seven ducks.

They were seven of 19 ducks across the three A-grade matches on the weekend.

Tigers opening fast bowler Andrew "Big Bob'' Keiler was at his destructive best taking 7/19 (10 overs).

In the other game at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds, Frenchville are poised for first innings points after setting Gracemere a 229-run chase.

Frenchville top-order batsman Sean Toovey hit 64 while Jason Wells, batting at number nine, hit a game high 67.

Gracemere start their innings this Saturday.
