TERRANORA Lakes is in a strong position to go for an outright win in their LJ Hooker league round 11 match against Brunswick Heads at Bilambil.

After day one of the two day game, Terranora had a handy first innings lead over the visitors who were bundled out for just 58 off 30 overs.

After winning the toss, Terranora sent the visitors in - which turned out to be a winning move by skipper Leigh Baker.

Promising young bowler Corey McMahon was the principle destroyer for Terranora, claiming an impressive 5 for 9 off just six overs including one maiden.

"It definitely wasn't a pitch that had any surprises," Baker said.

"It was playing fast and that suited Corey but to see 23 wickets fall in a day, I certainly didn't think it was that tricky.

The local Tweed Coast derby between Pottsville and Cudgen at Seabreeze has seen Cudgen take first innings points on day one.

After winning the toss, Cudgen sent Pottsville into bat with the home side struggling to handle the Cudgen attack.

Cudgen's Michael Anderson was the chief wicket taker, claiming 4-23 off 12 overs and removing the Pottsville top order.

As has been a problem this season for Pottsville, the batsmen failed to go on and build totals after getting starts and the side was dismissed for 104 off 51 overs. …
