A wet weekend for South Burnett cricket

IT WAS a wet weekend in South Burnett Cricket with both the Kingaroy Devils vs Wondai Wolves and Blackbutt vs Kumbia matches being washed out.

The Scorpions came out swinging with opener Brock Matthews hitting 65 for the day.

Some sublime bowling from Cherbourg's Ryan Brown wasn't enough to stop the Scorpions, bowling 6 off 31 with Dallas Bond bowling 3 for 28.

Cherbourg's Tom Langton and Edwin Simpson showed promise early with Langton caught on 16 and Simpson out for 31.

A series of low scores from the next six batsmen including a golden duck from Dallas Bond and a duck from Joven Gyemore led to a low score, before Ryan Jacobs did his best caught out on 25.

Nanango's Scott Pedron was impressive, bowling 6 for 41 with Matty Early taking 3 for 15.

In other results Kingaroy Services hosted the Murgon District Cricket Club with Murgon taking the win by five wickets.
