Cabbage Tree dominates Twenty-20

The Far North Coast Aboriginal Cricket Team.

The Cabbage Tree Island Cane Cutters defended their Bundjalung Aboriginal Twenty-20 Cricket title with a stirring against-the-odds victory over Lismore Boomerangs.

The Boomerangs got away to a screamer and were none for 40 when Willo James struck and the Lismore lads lost 10 wickets for 22, setting the mob from Cabbage Tree just 62 for victory. Nicholas Wappett was Lismores top scorer on 27.

Cabbage Tree Island lost only four wickets to wrap up the title, with Steve Breckenridge scoring 31 n.o. including a towering six toward the power station at Fripp Oval. Boomerang Reese Roma took 2 for 24.

Daniel Roberts from the West Side Muddies and Lismores Roy Gordon shared the Player of the Carnival award.

The Far North Coast Aboriginal XI was selected after the event and they will play on Sunday, December 17, against the Lower North Coast XI in Sawtell. The team includes captain/coach Andrew Gordon, Des Anderson (vc), Jerry Deal, Andrew Fair, Daniel Roberts, Bill Walker Jnr, Ritchie Heywood, Zane Crisp, Rob Roberts, Willo James, Nicholas Wappett, Roy Gordon and Steven Roberts. This game doubles as a selection trial for the North Coast XI to go to the NSW Imparja Cup trials in Sydney in January.
