CQ drops winning cricket chances
VITAL dropped chances led to Central Queensland suffering its first reversal at the state Intra- State Championships in Bris- bane yesterday.
Searching for its third victory in as many days, the CQ outfit had Redlands Bears in trouble at 8-94 before dropped chances en- abled the Bears' tail to wag, reaching 9-188 of its 55 overs.
Gladstone paceman Rowan Murray continued his excellent form to snare 3-38 off 11 overs while Rockhampton pair Ken Litchner (3-22 off seven) and Gene Shaw (2-29 off eight) also bowled well.
In reply, CQ managed 147 with Rockhampton's Pat Flamank top- scoring with 33 before being run out and former Gladstone bats- man Shaun Kelly notching 31.
CQ sits near the top of the lad- der despite the loss for which it will look to make amends against Brisbane North today.
