THE Caboolture Snakes began the one-day season in style, comprehensively beating Maroochydore in a grand final rematch after an unfortunate washout the weekend before.

Crashing to 2-11, Maroochydore had to rely on big runs from in-form Dan Hall and Adam Thornton, but they were double-teamed by the wiles of Jason Voros and Matt Anderson to rock the innings at 4-78.

Kyle Lineburg added a good 31, but from 7 for 100 only the determination of a much-too-low John Clifford dragged the tail to 50 overs and 9-154.

Captain/coach Cameron Garnham said he was pleased with the balanced effort from all of his bowlers.

"The bowlers all did their job really well," he said.

"They all went for about 30-odd from their 10 overs.

"Ando obviously really stood up with 2/14."

Garnham didn't push the issue with the lure of bonus points as the Caboolture innings began, and the Clayton Simpson batting-through tactic worked well once more.

His patient 55 was accessorised with strokes from Schmelzkopf, Phillips and Andy Schablon, who wasted his wicket aiming for a symbolic victory boundary in a seven-wicket margin.

Coach Garnham said he was wary of Maroochydore heading in and was pleased to come away with such a strong victory, with or without the bonus points.

"The guys could have gone a bit harder to win five or six down with the extra bonus points," he said.

"We were there or thereabouts with a couple of overs to go, but let me just say it was nice to win professionally.

"It was a big game. The Swans had everything to play for, so for us to perform the way we did was genuinely pleasing."

The Snakes take on Nambour next week at home, after the Cutters went down to Tewantin-Noosa.
