Sharks swing back into action

LAST week was huge for the Pacific Hotel A-grade Sharks as the club welcomed Jim Knuth as senior coach for the rest of this season.

The first game was a big test against powerhouses Gracemere.

Bowling first, Cap Coast took wickets at regular intervals to have Gracemere 4/88, but a strong partnership lifted them to a respectable 239, Dunsby being the pick of the bowlers at 3/46.

Losing Gilvear early put a weight around the run chase and no one really got going in a score of 91. Rosel hit 19 and Dunbar and Dunsby 15 each, but the side was left well short.

Ando's Digger and Tipper Hire reserves continued its big workload, playing both a 40-over and a T20 game against top side Norths at the weekend.

There was an outside chance of a grand final berth in the T20, relying on the result this weekend.

In the first game, Norths batted first and hit up 137. Etchell bowled well again for 3/9 and Wiltshire backed him up with 2/32, but unfortunately only 20no from Suhr stood out as we replied with 76.

In the T20 we scored 85 batting first, T. Robbo scoring 23 and Slayer Slade 17. Norths passed that score comfortably in the 14th over.

Thirds, U14 and U12 games resume February 3, with U16 starting on February 23. All new players are urged to contact the club to get a deal on registration for the remainder of the year.

Saturday, February 24, has the club again hosting the Cap Coast Cricket XXXX Backyard Bash.

The Backyard Bash is a six-a-side tournament with games played across the day and semi-finals and finals played under lights.

The games are played with a real carnival atmosphere and will start at 8am, kicked off by the Triple M B-Team, and winds up in the evening with an array of food vans and refreshments available.

All spectators are welcome. Last year's event was an extremely entertaining event.

Team nominations are still open. Local businesses are urged to put in a team and have some fun. To nominate, phone Richard Tucker on 0429 440 940.
