Jackson Simpson top-scored for Caboolture with a steady 68, while fellow opener Preston White made a quick 39.

Caboolture’s middle order faltered before David McKay, John Flew and Mitchell Lee made some useful runs.

Not enough runs in Division 2

A total of 140 proved insufficient for Caboolture in its Division 2 contest on home soil.

Christian Green’s innings of 57 was vital after the hosts were reeling at 4/30, with eight of Caboolture’s batters tallying only 30 runs.

Tewantin-Noosa’s first five batters made scores between 13 and 42, enabling the visitors to win by seven wickets in 29 overs.

Maroochydore’s Greg Ebbott nabbed 4/24 while three of his team-mates took two wickets each, as the hosts were dismissed in the 34th over.

Chasing 99 for victory, the visitors progressed from 2/19 to 2/70 and then slipped to 5/70 before scoring the winning runs at the 30-over mark.
