Jack Shore can play cricket

SYDNEY team North Shore is a chance of taking out the Lismore Workers Club Under-12 cricket carnival for the second straight year.

North Shore will play Central Coast in the final at Oakes Oval today after all-rounder Jack Davis-Rice produced an outstanding double in their semi-final win.

Jack scored 40 retired and took 5-18 as North Shore (5-126 from its 45 overs) defeated Manly-Warringah (80 all out) at Heaps Oval.

In the other semi, Central Coast (5-88 in 33 overs) defeated Parramatta (7-87 from 45 overs) at Oakes Oval.

The final today will start at 9am with presentations including player of the carnival and FNC player of the carnival to follow.

FNC Gold yesterday lost to Hornsby-Kuringai and will play Armidale in its last game at Nesbitt Park, South Lismore.

FNC Green played a tie against Tamworth, with both teams scoring 82 from their allotted 45 overs at Mortimer Oval.

The FNC Sixers, an all-girls team, finished the carnival with a win over FNC Futures.

The Sixers made 82 with Jakira Toniello top-scoring with 30 then the girls bowled out the young Futures outfit for 64 at Arthur Park, North Lismore.

Grace Parsons took 5-4 to spearhead the Sixers' win.

Peter Ford, one of the carnival organisers, said last night that it had been an outstanding week of cricket.

"The weather has been mainly kind and games have been played in great spirit," he said.

"And, as always, the Lismore City Council has done a great job with the grounds."
