The Monaro District Cricket Association Season kicked off on Saturday with the first round of their Twenty20 Cricket Competitions at Snowy Oval. In the first game an undermanned Alpine Cricket Club side took on a near full strength Cooma Cats side and with a little help from Zac Smith on loan from Coffeys Cricket Club the Alpine just managed 105 runs off their 20 overs. The Cats never looked troubled in reply with Manus Choudry leading the way with an unbeaten 64 not out helping the Cats overtake their tally in the 15th over.
In the second game of the day the Cats backed up against Coffeys Cricket Club and the Cats batted first with Chris Khoury (32), Mitch Hynes (31) and Stu Wood (28) all contributing runs for them to get to 116 off their allocated overs.
In reply Coffeys were in trouble early before Zac Smith settled their innings and Steve Summerville finished off the Cats' total with three balls to spare.
The Alpine were then unable to field a side against Coffeys giving them a perfect record going into the final round of Twenty20 pool games next weekend in Cooma.
