CRICKET: When the bat is with Sam Lowry, you know you're in safe hands.

That was certainly the case at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds over the weekend as the Central Queensland Centurions took on Mackay Whitsundays in the opening round of the North Queensland Championships.

The round was played in back-to-back one-day matches.

Saturday's match saw CQ finish comfortably 9/233 ahead of Mackay on 9/170.

On Sunday, CQ batted first and finished on 6/212 thanks to the handiwork of Lowry as well as Mark O'Keefe (63) and Shaun Gilvear (61 not out).

Ben Milne made sure the momentum continued when Mackay Whitsundays started their innings, taking three wickets in a single over.

As a result, Mackay finished their campaign against CQ with a score of 10/121.

With Gladstone's Lowry amassing 63 runs on Saturday and a further 53 on Sunday while also taking three wickets and putting in a solid performance on the field, CQ captain Aaron Harmsworth was impressed.

"Sam did really well; he's put in a good all round performance,” Harmsworth said.

"We had three blokes make 50 yesterday so that is always pleasing. We took 20 wickets across the two days.”

Harmsworth said the two solid wins had put CQ in a very good position heading into the next round of competition.

"The attitude of the team was really good,” he said.

"This weekend's performance has put us in good stead to possibly win the championship.”

CQ will now prepare to take on Cairns and Townsville in Mackay in two weeks' time.
