A shared 10-wicket haul between pace bowlers Alister McDermott and Sam Doggett has swept the Queensland Academy of Sport to a hard-fought outright win over Western Australia at Allan Border Field.
The QAS defeated WA by 25 runs on the final day of their Toyota Futures League 2nd XI, with McDermott (5-46 from 13 overs) and Doggett (5-96 from 17 overs) combining to dismiss the visitors for 285.
Doggett, the older brother of Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat quick Brendan, finished with eight wickets for the match.
McDermott, the club coach at Wynnum-Manly, turned back the clock to his recent playing days with Queensland with a quality spell of controlled pace bowling.
It capped off a sold all-round game by the QAS, which had good batting contributions from Sam Heazlett (101), Bryce Street (89) and Nathan McSweeney (60) delivering in the first innings while Lachlan Thompson (50 and 68) scored half centuries in each innings to produce his best batting effort to date for the 2nd XI since getting the call-up from Sandgate-Redcliffe.
The win will lift the QAS up the ladder.
