Carving up the Coast
THE Stirling Homes Gympie Gold XI walked away with an outright win at Noosa after a massive effort by captain Kaden Dickfos.
The all-rounder led his team to victory taking five wickets to leave the home side scrambling for runs.
Tewantin-Noosa continued their second innings on Saturday returning to the pitch with 2 for 26 after Dickfos sent both of Noosa's top order batsmen to the dressing rooms early last week.
Gympie felt confident after the first the day, easily surpassing Noosa's first innings score of 45 as the A-grade side declared with 159 runs and four wickets still in hand.
Despite play being interrupted twice due to wet weather, Gympie were able to maintain their bowling accuracy as they left Noosa floundering to make a total of 71 runs.
With everybody in good form it generally means one bowler will get most of the wickets but it was good that the rest of the bowlers followed through, Dickfos said.
Dean Chandler, Josh Brady, Anthony Reid and Troy Ashton have all been bowling well.
"We have been doing well as a team," Dickfos said
"The early wickets got us up and put pressure on them pretty quickly."
The ball moved around well off the wicket and the bowlers were able to get Noosa's top batsman out quickly and the rest just fell.
Gympie will have the home advantage as they take on Nambour this Saturday.
"It should be a good game," Dickfos said.
"We need to get on top early and get over the top of them - our experience might be the telling factor."
The Gold will be waiting to hear the result of last night's Noosa and Nambour match to see if they make the T20 finals.
