Minor premiers

GREG Louis took 3-21 off six overs to set up a Warwick Hotel Colts victory against Maryvale-Condamine yesterday to secure the minor premiership in Warwick A-grade cricket.

Batting first, Colts were 2-43 when Brendan Iles joined Alex Costello on the pitch.

Costello's first scoring shot was a six over mid-wicket and he showed in a score of 49 he is a classy batsman as well as an accomplished leg-spin bowler.

Iles and Costello weathered the initial spell from Brisbane A-grade paceman Mark Steketee.

After Steketee bowled Adam Byrne, Iles hit two twos off the first two balls he faced from Steketee.

Costello received strong support from John Cleary who played well past point in a score of 23 and Louis who made 21.

Mitch Darton was the best of the bowlers with 3-15 off three overs.

In reply, Maryvale lost two early wickets before Jordan Siebenhausen, 48, and Kevin Bourke, 19, restored the innings with a partnership of 70.

Paul Bourke made 25 and Jimmy Olsen 24 to take the score to 161 all out in 30 overs.

Louis received strong support from Matt Elford who took 2-16 off six overs.

RSL Diggers beat Wheatvale at Dunning Oval to secure the second spot in the major semi-final.
