A FAMILIAR pattern began to emerge for Stradbroke B, who restricted well in the field, then struggled to chase down a target.
Once B Gobbitt (21) and D Kingsman (19) were parted by the ever reliable Billy Freeman, the home side took control. Sam Johnson bowled very quickly in a 'good cop/bad cop' partnership with Owen Morgan, who earned the plaudits with a spell of four for 23, and suddenly it was 106 all out.
Tony Elliott (16), Tom Wright (14) and Liam Smith (18) moved the score along briskly, but 55 for two became 67 for six as G Nobbs (five for 40) ripped out the middle order like a lion devouring a wildebeest.
Fortunately, the two Dans, Manley and Taylor are not scared of big cats, and when singles would be sufficient to win, both youngsters chose the quick route home, the winning boundary taking Manley's score to 22.
