THE season started well enough for Axe Creek when it defeated Spring Gully by 35 runs in the opening round.

But there would be only one more win for the season when the Cowboys defeated Sedgwick in round seven as they missed the finals for the fifth year in a row since their 2009 premiership.

The Cowboys were on the end of some monster scores from the opposition, including round two when Emu Creek plundered 7-520 against them.

The Emus’ 520 was one of five scores of 300-plus the Cowboys conceded, while six opposition players scored centuries against them.

Captain Travis Nolan battled hard with bat (348 runs) - he was dismissed in single figures just once in 11 innings - and ball (22 wickets) to lead the Cowboys in both departments.

DIVISION 2: 10th – 2-8-2.

DIVISION 3: 11th – 1-8-1.

DIVISION 4: No team.
