Cavaliers closing in on Webb Shield final

THE Toowoomba Cavaliers are just one game away from the Webb Shield final after making short work of Tweed District at Rockville Park yesterday.

The Cavaliers cruised home by five wickets to pick up a double bonus point and move into second spot on the ladder with one round left to play.

Tweed District batted first but struggled to build any momentum against the Toowoomba attack.

Shaun McCarthy (2-16) and Aaron Watson (2-18) struck early and often as the Cavaliers took control of the contest.

The visitors were on the ropes at 4-16 before a true captain's knock from Tait Burns (47) stemmed the flow of wickets.

But it was the only highlight in an otherwise dismal innings for Tweed District as they were knocked over for just 97.

In reply, Toowoomba needed just 11.2 overs to chase down the target with debutant Liam Brown (34no) leading the way.

The Cavaliers shared the workload with Dean White (2-9), Tom Carty (2-21) and Matt Elford (2-30) also picking up wickets.

Cavaliers skipper Troy Gurski praised the efforts of the team's bowlers to knock over Tweed so quickly.

"The boys all bowled good areas," he said.

"To go out and knock them off before lunch with the double bonus point is great."

Gurski said he was confident the Cavaliers would secure a place in the Webb Shield final.

"We're quietly confident. We've still got to put it all together in our next game," he said.

"But going on today's performance, I can't see why we won't be there."
