Final spot down to wire

A FOUR by Paul Bourke off the second-last ball of the innings has put Maryvale-Condamine into the Warwick A-grade grand final.

RSL Diggers batted first and scored 158, Chris McEvoy top scoring with 55, including eight fours and a six.

Michael Bourke celebrated his birthday with 3-30 off eight overs for Maryvale.

Jordan Siebenhausen took 2-35 off six overs.

In reply, Maryvale captain Andrew Ryan hit two fours and a six in 16 before being dismissed in the third over off Pat Gribbin.

Jason Steketee, 55, and Michael Bourke, 32, added 88 for the fifth wicket.

At the end, it was Paul Bourke, 17, and Mitch Siebenhausen, 8, who shared an unbroken eighth-wicket stand of 26 in four overs.

Col O'Brien took 2-15 off five overs.

Maryvale captain Andrew Ryan put the win down to a fine team effort.

"If we all play well, we can beat Colts on Saturday," he said.

Nick Campbell took a hat-trick at Briggs Oval yesterday to steer Inglewood into a second successive grand final in Warwick cricket.

Last season, Inglewood won A-grade but missed the top-four this season and are in reserve-grade.

Batting first, Animals were dismissed for 78, Damien Canning hit 23 and Dave Watson 19. Campbell took 4-19 off four overs, including the hat-trick for Inglewood.

Wayne Fearby took 2-18 off seven overs and Rob Purtle 2-3 off 3.1 overs.

Inglewood lost four wickets in winning, Jeremy Ralph finishing 24 not out.
