THE BRIBIE Island cricket side travelled to Finsbury Park to take on the Gold Crest Cobras in the first half of the two-day round last weekend.
Bribie captain Billy Hetzel was pretty chuffed with the result so far as the side wrapped up 5/230.
"The boys have bounced back pretty well," he said.
"Everything is looking good for next weekend."
Bribie lost the toss and were set up to bat with only six players due to the Christmas holiday period.
"We decided to try something different and give the young up and comers a bit of a go," Hetzel said.
The move proved to pay off as 18-year-olds Chris Taylor and Zach Schimmer started off in fine form.
After a big six, Taylor was dismissed for 35.
Schimmer continued well into the match alongside Greg Foote who was caught out on 22.
Matt Mcgregor added another 62 to the tally supported by newcomer Norman Jensen who was dismissed on an argued LBW decision for 72.
Hetzel finished up the day eight not out.
The day left Bribie set up well for the second half where they expect to have their full side return.
Hetzel said he hoped to bowl the Cobras out quickly to continue their good position.
"We look forward to the return of five of our senior players next week," he said.
"We've been really struggling over the Christmas period to get stuff happening."
Bribie Island will play the second half of the two-day match against Gold Crest at Finsbury Park on Saturday, January 12 from 1pm.
