With four all-round performances securing four wins, WA enter the pointy end of the tournament in great form and will take on the host state in a semi-final tomorrow.

Captain Cooper Connolly provided the competition highlight in WA’s pool match against Queensland, taking 5-28 with the ball and scoring an unbeaten knock of 70 to fire his side to the top of Pool B.

With even contributions across the team, Assistant Coach Wayne Andrews said the way the team was working together was impressive.

“This team is up their with one of the best I’ve seen in my time being involved with the Under 17’s,” he said.

“We don’t have a stand out star player like some of the other teams, but the way this squad has come together and worked as a team has been outstanding.

“Our bowlers have bowled really well, our batters have stood up when they needed to and we’ve fielded brilliantly across our first four games.

“Queensland will be a tough task, as long as we play to the best of our abilities I’d like to think the boys can get over the line and into a final.”

Instead of recovering on their day off, the team volunteered at the Sarina Ute Muster, with proceeds from the event going towards suicide prevention through the Grapevine Group.

“The boys were eager to head down and help with the set up for the event, which was greatly appreciated by the organisers,” Andrews said.

“They provided a bit of muscle with installing the fencing and I know the lads got a kick out of being able to help out for a great cause.”
