DESPITE a shaky batting performance, the Caboolture Snakes notched up their first two-day win of the season at Glasshouse on the weekend thanks to a brilliant batting and bowling performance from Matt Anderson and Jason Voros.

Anderson took 10-95 across two innings to scuttle Glasshouse before backing up with a top-scoring 72 with the bat.

He was ably assisted by Voros who took four wickets on the first day, including a hat-trick, and batted for almost the entirety of the Snakes first innings for a responsible 62.

It was the sixth hat-trick of Voros's career but he said it came as something of a shock.

"I actually didn't know because I got two off the last ball of one over and then got their English bloke out on the first ball of the next over," he said.

"I didn't realise until Matty Anderson who caught it, said it was a hat-trick.

"It's the first one I've taken in a few years so it was a pretty special moment."

Voros and Anderson combined well with Matt Parkinson to dismiss the Rangers for 184 to place the Snakes in the box seat.

But a slow start with the bat left Caboolture at 6-68 before Voros steadied the ship.

He restrained his aggressive spirit to play out a long and controlled innings.

"I usually like to go out and hit the ball," he said.

"It was pretty slow but I think it's what the team needed.

Things really took off when Anderson got to the crease as the pair piled on 99 runs for the ninth wicket stand.

Coach Cameron Garnham was full of praise for the pair after the match.

"We were obviously in big trouble," he said.

"They came together at about 8-114.

"We were looking down the barrel of being 0 and 3.

"We definitely made some progress."

The seven match one-day series starts next weekend as the Snakes take on Noosa at Grant Rd from 10.30am.
