WASHED OUT: How Fraser Coast sport is affected by storms

The first representative game of the cricket season has been cancelled as the week's storms blow away weekend sports fixtures.

The Goodchild Shield, contested between Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Bundaberg, South Burnett and Gympie, was scheduled to be played at Maryborough Cricket Club.

Each team would have played four Twenty20 games to crown Wide Bay's premier cricket side.

The Goodchild Shield will now be played at a later date.

How storms have affected the Fraser Coast

Maryborough's junior cricket games, usually held Friday afternoon, are cancelled, as are Hervey Bay Cricket Association's and Bundaberg Cricket Association's games.

All Maryborough and District Hockey Association indoor hockey games have been cancelled until October 18 due to damage sustained at Maryborough Showgrounds.

Maryborough Pony Club's rally day, planned for Sunday, was also cancelled. 

The new Intercity Softball competition, which features teams from Hervey Bay, Maryborough and Bundaberg, was due to start this weekend.

Boaties advised to stay home, up to 100mm predicted

Fixtures for both Maryborough Softball's Searle St home and Bundaberg's Brothers Complex have been cancelled.

Trials for Wide Bay Buccaneers' 2019 squads are currently set to go ahead on Sunday, but a decision will be made Sunday morning after the Tavistock St fields are assessed.
