However, O’Keeffe and Powyer smashed half centuries, 71 and 62 respectively, to combine in a game-winning partnership of 137 runs for the fourth wicket.

Gladstone also came away with the points last weekend against Centrals with Kyran Bubb top scoring for his side with a compelling 72 not out. Bubb was supported by Jason Tarleton who smashed 26 runs. The two led the way in chasing Centrals score of 117, within 17 overs. Despite the seven wicket loss, Centrals Matthew Ripps provided some resistance with a gritty 59.
CYMS Moroneys leg spinner Pat Madden led the way with the bat and ball to defeat Waratahs CSU. Madden bowled his team in a commanding position with figures of 5-14 off eight overs. In defiance of Madden’s bowling, CSU’s opening batsman Manu Sebastian worked a solid 34. Madden furthered his contribution with the bat providing a very tidy 31 not out.
