Cricket: Murgon Diggers and Warriors B will contest the South Burnett Cricket B-grade grand final after respective semi final victories at the weekend.

Diggers have been the form team of the competition all season, but were made to work for their berth in the decider.

Batting first, the Murgon side was led by Paul Brunjes' 79 to post a defendable 9/202 from their allotted overs.

Ash Louis (26) and Jono Kapernick (23) chipped in with handy cameos.

Keith Walsh was the pick of Cherbourg's bowlers, finishing with 3/21 from four overs. In reply, Cherbourg fell 23-runs short as Walsh top-scored with 37.

Andrew Roderick claimed three wickets for 38 as the best of the Diggers attack.

In the other semi final clash, Chris Heness gave Wondai every chance of an upset win over Warriors when he blasted 152 runs.

He lacked partners however, with Daniel Braxton the next-best hitting 28 runs.

Jaden Heness was again in-form with the ball, taking 3/15. Despite the steep run chase, Warriors never looked troubled courtesy of Dinka Sudahkaran's massive innings of 167 not-out.

Accompanied by Paul Clegg's 53 not-out, Warriors cruised to the eight-wicket victory finishing 2/250.

Braxton was the sole bowler of note for Wondai, finishing with figures of 2/24 from three overs.
