THE familiar cries of "howzat" returned to the sporting fields of the South Burnett on Saturday as the region's cricket season resumed after their two week Christmas break.

The third round of two day fixtures for the season got under way with Nanango Scorpions taking on Kingaroy RSL at Lyle Vidler Oval, Kingaroy and Murgon Crusaders hosting the Wooroolin Warriors at Murgon Sportsgrounds.

Kingaroy RSL earned next week off after dismissing the Scorpions twice in one day to earn the outright victory.

Nanango Scorpions opened the batting and were dismissed for 65 as Darren Geiger and Wayne Kelly wrecked havoc for Kingaroy RSL as Geiger took 4/14 off 7 overs and Kelly 4/11 off 5.3 overs.

Tony Dugdell and David Hosking were also among the wicket takers with Dugdell taking 1/21 off 7 overs and David Hosking 1/15 off six overs.

Kingaroy RSL then posted 259 in their batting innings with Mark Schmidt leading the way with an outstanding knock of 104, with Wayne Kelly next best on 26.

Nick Krauksts was the best of the Scorpions bowling attack taking 4/44 off nine overs.

Michael Davies finished with 3/63 off 15.1 overs and John Alexander took 2/55 off 10 overs.

Kingaroy RSL dismissed Nanango for a second time as the Scorpions made 29, as Darren Geiger continued his great bowling performance taking 6/12 off 7 overs while Tony Dugdell took 2/13 off 9 overs.

The Wooroolin Warriors took a commanding position in the first day of their match against Murgon Crusaders at Murgon Sportsgrounds.

The Warriors dismissed the Crusaders for 124.

Mitch Bunker and Tom Webster were the Warriors' best taking 2/14 and 2/13 respectively.

Bernard Hopkins top scored for the Crusaders with 27 while Lucas Sander posted 22.

The Warriors finished 5/224 at stumps for a 100 run lead with Andrew Askin top scoring on 58.
