Warriors book final replay

Cricket: The Wooroolin Warriors remain in the hunt for the South Burnett Cricket A-grade title, following a convincing 116-run win over Kumbia Rattlers at Lyle Vidler Oval on Saturday.

The Warriors will meet Murgon Crusaders in the A-grade decider, with the stage set for another epic showdown between the two best sides in the South Burnett.

The Crusaders punched their ticket to the grand final with a narrow 11-run win over the Warriors in the major semi-final on March 11, and will likely enter as favourites after a dominant second half of the season.

But the Warriors showed their best is certainly up to task, with a clinical display against the ever-improving Kumbia side.

The Rattlers won the toss and sent their hosts in to bat - a decision they would quickly come to rue, as Hayden Wieck and Andrew Askin got Warriors off to a flier.

Askin fell cheaply, but Wieck raced to a half-century in a dominant display of power hitting.

Wieck would go on to make 79 before losing his wicket, while Dan Bloomfield picked up where Wieck left off to finish with 84 runs to his name.

Keegan Wright (2-52) and Chris Medcalf (2-26) bowled amicably for the visitors.

Needing 292 to reach the grand final, it was always going to be a tough task for the young Kumbia side.

Tavis Hartwig did his best impression of Matt Renshaw to finish with a hard-fought 71, but he lacked partners.

David Hartwig and Ryan Kelly were unable to go on, with promising starts, both finishing with 28 runs.

In the end, Kumbia ran out of contributors on their way to 10-175.

Kieran and Andrew Askin claimed 5-38 and 2-9 respectively to help lead their side into Saturday's decider.
