Kossie's cracking start not enough for Cavaliers

CRICKET: A cracking start by Cavaliers veteran John Kosmidis was not enough to put Cavaliers on track to victory.

Cavaliers were cruising against Bushrangers' lethal attack, but when Isaac Kelsey was caught by brother Nic off Justin Frohling's bowling for 18 their innings fell apart.

Kelsey's dismissal triggered a horror collapse of 8-34, as Frohling took 5-31 and Sagar Shreeragh jagged 3-10 from six overs of tight, consistent bowling.

Kosmidis, who scored 40 and is his club's highest run-scorer (and 10th overall), was the fourth wicket to fall, and there is little resistance.

Fraser Coast A-grade's highest run-scorer Brent Dean and Nic Kelsey shared a 52-run partnership to kick-start Bushrangers' chase.

Dean was dismissed for 20 and Nic Kelsey fell for 46, but Bushrangers reached its target for the loss of just three wickets after 16 overs.
