Swans and Snakes to contest region's Division 1 final

CRICKET: Maroochydore and Caboolture will contest the SCCA Division 1 grand final after an interrupted weekend saw the Swans finally get enough time in the middle to pass Tewantin-Noosa's first innings' 119.

At Caboolture, a Sunday morning shower foiled all attempts to get play restarted, a boon to the home Snakes who were in a precarious position against Gympie.

Wickets fell cheaply with no batting side taking control on the first day after midweek rain had raised the stakes while the teams calculated how best to use the conditions.

At Grant Road, Matt Anderson won the toss, inserted Gympie, and lead from the front to record 6/48 as the Gold struggled to 160 from 74 overs, based on 56 from Jarrod Sippel and 45 from Trevor Brady.

Perhaps the Snakes should have taken notice of history, because last year in the corresponding final the Gold were dismissed early for 158, only to strike back lethally.

This time Caboolture lost three wickets in the first 10 balls, and from 3/0 clawed back to a precarious 7/56 at stumps, with Anderson to the rescue hanging on with Dan Book.

From there the weather took over, with the Snakes' top ladder position enough to allow the draw to take them through to their eighth grand final in 10 years.

Saturday's play started two hours late at Read Park as a wicket flooded twice in the week was rehabilitated, and Tewantin-Noosa had the honour at the crease in its return to finals cricket after 19 years, with Maroochydore eying off a soft strip.

Shane Newton, who has over 500 wickets, made every delivery one to be played, tormenting the Thunder to take a personal best 7/37 from 24 overs as the home side battled, with Steve Shaw's 32 best.

At 119 the innings was over, then Maroochydore had its own share of peril, ending at 1/34 in fading light with Callum Stitt run out for 17 after leading runscorer Adam Thornton retired with a hand injury.

Sunday brought further showers to Tewantin, but the covered wicket meant that the sodden outfield could be treated, with play starting before 2pm as the Swans sought the 86 runs needed.

A 62-run partnership by James Chaplin and captain Gerard Flegler made the chase seem easy, but three more wickets fell until the total was passed.

Codey Rzeszkowski and Chris Whitworth shared the eight wickets to fall to the bowlers while Maroochydore progressed to 135, then Tewantin had a final bat for the season, lashing out for 7/57 in eight overs while Shane Newton took five more wickets before tearing his hamstring.

This left the Swans the challenge of 41 runs in 6 overs, a dare they politely ignored to record 1/6, moving to the grand final with injuries to their best batsman and bowler.
