A super productive few days as far as results go. 4 games over 3 days and 4 wins.
The 1st Grade kicked it off on Sunday with a comprehensive win over Port Adelaide. Bowling first a dominant display saw us bowl Port out for 44 in 25 overs. Jamo 2/12 and Kelly 2/8 were excellent, but paled when compared to figures of 9 Overs, 5 Maidens 5 for 6. A superb display from Slowe as she lead from the front. She then came out and clubbed an unbeaten 23 from 18 balls in 13 minutes to get us pass the score 1 down in 7.4 overs.
The girls backed it up again on Tuesday in the final 20/20 game against Northern Districts. Losing the toss and batting was a bonus and the team racked up 131 in the 20 overs. An early wicket didn't deter the team as Eliza 25, Slowe 27, Jordy 37*, and Kelly 22 all combined in true team fashion. Northern's had been struggling of late with the bat and this game was no exception. A top score of 8 was never going to get the job done and they fell for 39 in the 16th Over. What that means now is we need Sturt to knock off Port next Tuesday or for Sturt to have an absolute horror game to make the final. Fingers Crossed, but we have given ourselves the best chance possible.
The GOLDS also took on Port Adelaide and came away with a much needed win. A solid bowling effort led by Sophie Roberts in her comeback game from injury (7overs 1 Maiden 2 for 9) and a brilliant follow up from last week for Maeve Edwards (7 overs 2 for 10) kept Port to 112 (42 extra's?????). A solid start was the key and Roberts 24, and Edwards 26 (highest score for Kensi), again came through. Cassidy Perkins 17, Georgia Iannella 16* and Jacqui Manning 11* ensured that there would be no problems. 29 Overs and 3 down.
The BROWNS were even more desperate for a win after being bowled out for 25 chasing 70 last week. G;enelg batted first and took 8 from Amelie Greens first over. To then finish up with 7 overs 1 Maiden 4 for 22 was outstanding. Skipper Bridee Tonkin 2/11 from 7 and Tya Gonsalves 3/6 from 6 Overs were also excellent. In particular Tya who has been a bit low on bowling confidence. 66 for Glenelg. Bridee came out firing for 28 to get some momentum, but 2 late wickets of Melow 14, and Sam had hearts beating fast. Tya once again held firm to be not out on 7 and Ursula Gully 1* did a fantastic job to hold up her end to ensure we got over the line.
Considering both 2nd Grade teams had 9 players it was a fantastic job. Welcome to Melow Lin who played her first gaem for the club after tryin so many times but being denied by weather, and to Kerryn Ness who put her hand up to come and play. Many thanks Sam Tammitta

Please let me know if i have missed anyone.
ALSO i would personally like to thank MICHAEL QUEALE who looked after the Browns last week after i had to leave at 1:35. He scored / managed / did drinks / tidied up and packed up. I cannot thank him enough and for that matter all who help each week. I don't know if everyone realises just how much needs to be done, so any help is always greatly appreciated. Even the 2 young fellas, Sam and Kerryn's boys who kept the scoreboard up to date.
AAAAANNNNNDDDD last thing: We will be doing something on Sunday 12th of March, the last minor round game, when we're all at home. We will give out some vouchers that night for exceptional performances, and also have a mini break-up ahead of the official club presentation night. Please keep the date free.

This has come through from the SACA. If anyone is interested i would encourage you to attend. It's amazing what you can pick up, even if you may not be interested in a coaching career. It is lateish notice, but we have only just received it

SACA’s Coaching Development Coordinator – Tom Rutherford is running a Women’s Community Coach Accreditation Course starting next Wednesday at West Torrens DCC. It will run from 7-9:30pm on the 1st and the 8th of March.
Although the Course is being held at West Torrens it is open to all, so we would encourage as many women from the Premier Cricket community to attend.
Using the Promo Code as outlined below when registering waives the standard $120 fee for Community (Level 1) Coaching Accreditation, so this is a great initiative and I would encourage all clubs to take advantage for their coaches or any players looking to upskill.
Male coaches are also encouraged to attend, however they will not be eligible to use the Promo Code voucher. They may want to speak to their Clubs regarding subsidising the fee.
The course is now live and ready for registrations. The process to register is outlined below – please forward this onto your network and anyone who would like to attend:
· Coaches must first register with Cricket Coaches Australia: http://community.cricket.com.
· The Introduction to Cricket Course (Level 0) is the pre-requisite for the Community Course. It is free to complete and generally takes around 30-60 minutes to complete. All coaches must complete this prior to registering:
· Once complete, coaches will be able to register for the Community Course (if doing it immediately after completing the Level 0, they may need to log out of their accounts and log back in so their accreditation level will refresh):
· Please ensure that everyone uses the promo code CP0053 when they are completing their registration. This is for any female coach, and allows registration for free (the standard fee is $120).
If anyone is having trouble registering, please let me know the email address they are using, as this is generally the issue if there is one.

A really hard fought innings from Peter Unerkov (30) helped steady the ship and when joined by Jack Konnis looked like resurrecting our innings. When Peter fell, it triggered another small collapse. Enter Jack Read. He & Jack Konnis put on a great 77 run 7th wicket partnership that saved our game. Jack Read continued to back himself with his shots under pressure and was out on 46. With the score of 7/138, we hoped to make 180+ and with Jack Konnis now lifting the scoring we desperately needed someone to support him from the other end. Darcy Hunkin made a galant 13* out of an unbroken partnership of 82 with Jack Konnis but had front row seats to an epic innings at the other end. Jack Konnis made an inspirational 117* to lift his team to 7/220 dec. This was a hard fought innings that highlighted incredible strength and will power. Congrats to Jack on taking out the Blue Medal- well deserved .
Day two was the complete opposite, cold and windy which is always great for fielding, but not always for bowling. Our bowlers struggled for direction and consistency both with and into the wind. Ben Belperio on debut got a crucial break through in his first over. However Prospect had their two best batsmen at the crease and they continued to build. Liam Greber took a massive wicket caught & bowled and suddenly the game became winnable. Cooper McKenzie for Prospect raced past 50 and was heading for 100 quickly. After a match saving innings with the bat, Jack Read got the big wicket caught & bowled. McKenzie out for 71! Suddenly another wicket fell to Will Warrick and at 4x down we were back in the game.
Prospect still had plenty of overs and plenty of wickets to win the game. Liam Greber came back on and found line and length and more importantly accuracy. He took 3x quick wickets and the game was ours. Liam finished with best figures of 4/36 off 13 overs. Max Floreani took the two final wickets again both bowled showing great accuracy and finishing with incredible figures of 2/3.
For the most percentage of this game, Prospect were probably the better team. Both with bat and ball. For me, winning games when your not at your best on the park shows incredible character and attitude. More importantly we must continue to have “belief”!This was our closest match of the year and Prospect are a quality team. Jack Konnis, Jack Read & Liam Greber put in great performances and had good support from Peter Unerkov, Will Warrick & Darcy Hunkin & Ben Belperio. Next week we play probably the most consistent team in the comp, Woodville . We are now guaranteed a home semi final and sit top of the table for this week. Without a doubt our batting needs to improve if we are going to make a difference in finals. Seeing Reds debutants Jack Read & Ben Belperio make the most of their opportunities highlights to all boys that when opportunities are given , to take them & make the most whether it be with bat or ball. Remember no training Wednesday due to Australia 20/20 match.
After eventually getting to have a game of cricket we unfortunately came away with 2 big losses. The 1st Grade had a bowl first and was on the receiving end of a Lauren Ebsary 100 (again) as she took to our bowlers. To compound our woes Shae Daly suffered an injury when struck by the ball in the field, concussed, and needing to be taken away in an ambulance. Thankfully the injury wasn't as serious as feared, but it was a very nasty blow and could have been much worse. Concussion is never something to be taken lightly and the right precautions were taken for sake of Shae's health. Kelly Armstrong with 1/23 from her 10 overs and then a classy 59 the standout performer for the day. West Torrens 264 defeated Kensi 119.
The Browns took on Prospect at Broadview and had a terrific day in the field rolling Prospect for 70. Sophi-Rose Green taking a career best 5/16 and Jill Latimer taking one of the best 1 handed diving catches i have ever seen. However that was the end of our highlights. 15.4 overs later we were bowled out for 25! OUCH
HOWEVER the sun came up the next day and we have a chance to redeem ourselves.

With the weather in command and Port Adelaide not wanting to prepare a pitch, the 1st Grade girls made a useless trip to Port Adelaide last night. As it turned out no games were played and the matches have been rescheduled for Wednesday the 15th of Feb. (next week). All games at Park 25. We are on Park 25#1.
The 1st Grade this Sunday will come up against West Torrens at Parkinson Oval. Game time 11:50 start which means that players need to be dressed and ready to warm up by 11:00. Get there and be ready to go. A home game so afternoon tea is required. New Captain this week so Popey get the afternoon tea bringers sorted. If you don't have all emails let me know and i can forward them on.

TRAINING THIS WEEK: Ridiculously after having to put on a jumper for yard duty today at school, the expected temperature for Wednesday is currently 41 Degrees. IF this holds to be true then training will be cancelled. If there is a change in the predicted max then training will be back on, but any expected maximum 38 or above will definitely mean a cancellation of training.
