The Wolves run in the National Indoor Cricket Leagues finals series came to an end on Sunday, defeated by the NSW Metro champions Macarthur Raptors in the semi-finals in Adelaide.
The Wolves side faced challenges from the beginning, only having eight players for the duration of the tournament with ACT/NSW Comets player Shane Devoy, his brother Craig, John Stankovic and ACT Under 21’s representative Logan Ayers all unavailable.
Despite this, the Wolves finished second in the group stage with three wins from four matches, defeating the champions from NSW Country, South Australia and Victoria.
Batting first, the Wolves were restricted to a small total of 47 by the Raptors, with an incredible 43 runs scored by the pair of Tim Floros and Dwane Hall in the total. The run chase got off to a slow start for the Raptors with Benji Floros taking 2 for -6 in the first over but the total was just too small to defend, with Macarthur claiming a 15 run victory.
Australian player Tim Floros led the way for the Wolves during the tournament with an impressive 97 runs from 5 matches.
“It is a great event produced by Cricket Australia, putting some of the best players in the world on display to the nation by live streaming most of the games and exposing the sport,” said Floros.
"It was a tough weekend, being limited to only eight players for the tournament wasn't ideal but we did what we needed to get through it.
"I’m very proud of the entire playing group, making it to finals in a tournament like this is a massive effort.”
