Gladstone falls to Rockhampton in open cricket

IT was a disappointing end to an otherwise strong season for the Gladstone open representative cricket side.

But Sunday's match proved to be a well deserved win for Rockhampton, according to Gladstone representative cricket vice-president and player Daniel Williams.

Rockhampton stepped up to bat first.

They were bowled out for 224 and in reply Gladstone was bowled out for 181.

Williams said the half hour break due to rain is what "threw a spanner in the works".

"We ended up going to sleep a bit in the field," he said. "It's disappointing. We had a strong side."

Williams said Gladstone just came on too strong and was unable to keep up the momentum.

"We were a bit too keen to score quickly," he said. "We needed a bit more patience.

"But it's still a positive season for us."

Jason Feng was the standout player, making 71.

"He was the only real batter to get going," Williams said.
