CRICKET: It was another nail-biter at the weekend as the Canecutters narrowly stole victory from a determined Warriors.

It appeared the Canecutters were going to be in for a long day in the field as Bryce Fraser and Chris Wren (33) amassed an astonishing 151-run opening partnership to set the tone for the Warriors.

Ben Davis (2/38) nabbed the wicket of Wren before David Vickers (2/20) struck moments later to remove Fraser from the crease.

Fraser fell agonisingly short of his century, however it took an unbelievable one-handed catch from Cory Lucht on the boundary to send him back to the sheds on 99.

Warriors' middle order was unable to replicate the dominance of the opening stand, however managed to notch up the singles and twos to see their team reach the defendable total of 4/179.

Canecutters captain and opening batsman Liam Davies led from the front in response, with a determined 49 before talented youngster Noel Waipape (1/59) rattled the timber.

Warren Watts (2/46) backed up the youngster well to see the Canecutters looking a bit shaky on 2/32 after the sixth over.

Luckily for the Canecutters, the middle order worked its magic, with Ben Dawes (33) and Brendan Rock (52) combining well for a 62-run partnership to put them back in the game.

Wren (3/29) continued his good form with both bat and ball to slice through the Canecutters middle order to threaten victory for the Warriors.

After 25 overs the prognosis was simple - Canecutters required seven runs for victory while Warriors required one wicket. Wren and Fraser looked likely to claim the last wicket, however the Canecutters managed to hold out and bring up a narrow victory by one wicket.

This Saturday will see the Canecutters up against Valleys from 12.30pm at the Proserpine Sporting Complex. This may be the last regular fixture of the season before the finals.
