MAREEBA seconds dominated their second day of play against United at their home ground on the weekend.

After an impressive batting showing in their first innings Mareeba looked confident with the ball and succeeded in getting United out for 148 runs with Tyson Brown taking 5 wickets for a measly 28 runs.

Seeing their chance Mareeba decided to put some more runs on the board before the weather saw the game close.

Mareeba seconds came out with a huge win over United for their last game of the year and are looking into the New Year.

Mareeba thirds also had a win over the thirds counterpart of United at Griffiths park.

Mareeba decided to bat first after winning the toss and opening pair Paul Moss and Brendan Falvo put up an impressive 60 runs between them to give Mareeba a solid start.

A batting order collapse however slowed Mareebas runs and had them 9/144 at the end of their allotted overs.

United was chasing down a relatively low score but failed to reach it before the allotted overs after some impressive bowling by Mareeba to keep United in check. United failed to reach their total and finished on 8/113 after 35 overs.

Last fortnight young Angus Campman helped his Tier 3 junior side to a win over Mulgrave with an unbeaten 107 not out to bring his side to 6/188 with Mulgrave coming in short at 7/139.
