Round 4, Day 1 Under 16 Red Report

 General  Comments Off on Round 4, Day 1 Under 16 Red Report
Nov 232014
 
Following the longhaul flight through thunder storms, lighting and heavy rain, we finally landed at O’Sullivans beach, looking and feeling much more like Singapore than the southern suburbs of Adelaide.  The Southerns coach was busy with a yard broom sweeping the water away before rolling out the carpet on the narrow concrete deck.  With a burst of sunlight, the umpire called for the toss that James Cleggett won and had no hesitation in electing to bat.
 
We made a start but the 8th over claimed two early wickets leaving us 2/17, James Cleggett joined opener John Bliss to push on with building our score.  James pushed three 4’s from one over off the opening bowler which brought about a bowling change seeing two spinners come into the attack.  Barely an hour of play had passed and we were off the field thanks to mounting thunder, lightning and a short burst of heavy rain.  We waited 40 minutes before the umpire called early tea to give the mixture of concrete, carpet and grass time to dry in the pockets of sunlight.  Shortly after tea and a valuable 43 run partnership, John (13) popped one back to the bowler bringing Sean McCullum to the crease.  Sean started confidently against the spinners and before we knew it James and Sean were scoring off every second ball, runs ticking over followed with 12 from one over thanks to a big six followed by a four from Sean.  Another valuable 61 run middle order partnership coming to an end with James (52) caught on the boundry, we were 4/117 in the 38th over.
 
With another quick wicket, Southerns were back in the game, shortly after claiming Sean’s wicket (35) which brought two new batsmen to the middle.  Adam Clements and Will Loffler pushed some quick runs Adam (13) off 12 balls and Will (18) off 19 balls but we needed to hold wickets and let the runs come.  Hamish Porter (6*) held up his end but we quickly ran out of wickets closing out our 166 run innings in 50 overs.  This gave us 30 minutes of play remaining to have a go at Southerns, Ollie Harms opened the bowling and rattled the openers with real pace having both play and miss more than they would be proud of.  It was Ashley Eckermann who claimed the first scalp thanks to the safe hands of keeper Sean McCullum, at stumps they were 1/19 from 9 overs.
 
An interrupted day of play, runs on the board and a rich bowling attack to travel back next week, lets hope the jet lag does not play a factor in the game.  Stay tuned for Graeme Klemm’s match wrap up report next week.
 
Peter Cleggett.

Under !4 Reds day one vs Southern Districts

 General  Comments Off on Under !4 Reds day one vs Southern Districts
Nov 222014
 

The trek To O’sullivan Beach to Face Southern looked in vain as rain poured down and Lightning flashed all around. Then the gods said all was ok and the sun came out. Angas lost the toss, Southern elected to bat and we got underway just a few minutes late. An early wicket to Hamish Gitsham and we thought things might go our way – but a strong left hander had other ideas and we saw a few disappear to the boundary. Another to Hamish with a classically casual catch to Will Warrick on the boundary, then they settled and at 2 for 57 things were starting to look a little ominous.  Skipper Angas did an excellent job with good changes to bowlers and fields and when new boy Dusty Inglis recovered from his first over nerves and picked up 2 wickets, one with a lovely Yorker, we had the break through we needed.

Another twist then as Lightning and then rain brought an early tea and we lost over an hour of play. After the early break Sam Bruce bowled really well, turning the ball a lot on the matting and picking up 3 wickets along the way – one the dangerous lefty and some very smart catching from the 2 Wills saw Southerns in all sorts of trouble. Jack Konnis picked up one caught at first slip and then Angas brought Hamish back on and he finished the tail – the last 8 wickets gone for only 16 runs. Hamish finished with 4 and again bowled with some real heat!   All out 73 – an excellent effort in tough conditions.

We had 45 minutes to bat and before Angas and Tully set about the chase we had a number of volunteers to act as night watchman if needed. None of the top 5 but everyone else!  At stumps we were 0 for 40 off the 10 overs we faced with Angas 25no and Tully 7no and very well set to go on next week and give ourselves a real shot at an outright win. A very good day for us but the highlight was our execution and focus after the rain interruption, not always an easy thing to do!

On a wet and wild afternoon we lost our first toss and were sent into the field. Liam Greber grabbed two early wickets but it then took another 18 overs before we got the next. At tea Southern Districts were 3/108 off 31 overs and the game was in the balance. Jack Packer was bowling extremely well but with out luck. A good catch by Lachie Cox off Jack’s bowling and the game turned our way, grabbing the last 7 wickets for 45 runs. Smart catches by Alex Wakeham, Christian Leddicoat and Matt Slack and excellent bowling by Jack Packer who finished with career best figures of 15 overs 5 wickets for 33 – outstanding figures bowling leg spin with a very wet ball. Max Monfries first game for the season was terrific finishing with the smart figures of 2 for 18 off 8 overs. An excellent effort by all in difficult conditions. Sent from my iPhone

Ray Sutton Shield – Round 5 – Kensington v TTG – 16 Nov 2014

 General  Comments Off on Ray Sutton Shield – Round 5 – Kensington v TTG – 16 Nov 2014
Nov 182014
 

The Browns were away to The Gullies for the final minor round of the Ray Sutton Shield.

Kensington won the toss and batted. Tea Tree Gully bowled and fielded very well to see Kensington in all sorts of trouble with wickets falling constantly. Sam Bruce and Will Quigley – Smith batted outstandingly for the final wicket to get the total up to 125 with Sam scoring 47 not out and Will a good 30. Both boys played themselves in well and played good orthodox cricket shots, kept the ball on the deck and ran enthusiastically between wickets.

Tea Tree Gully then set about chasing the modest total.  They achieved this fairly easily with the loss of 4 wickets. Kensington certainly had its chances with The Gullies’ top scorer (61) dropped 4 times along the way. Liam Greber and Will Montgomery bowled a very tight opening spell. Jack Packer took 2 nice wickets with his leg spin.

It was a disappointing final round effort but full credit to The Gullies who were  better in all 3 departments of the game.

WOMEN’S RESULTS THIS WEEK 16/11/2014

 General  Comments Off on WOMEN’S RESULTS THIS WEEK 16/11/2014
Nov 172014
 
2 from 3 this week!
 
The B Golds came up against a surprisingly strong Prospect side which has been able to recruit some strength and power over the off season. Vic Neale won the toss and sent Prospect in and they were able to compile a very competitive 4/131. Vic lead from the front with 3 overs 1/12, Emily Armstrong and Sarah Ferris also taking a wicket. Kelly Armstrong fell early, but Vic and Hannah Armstrong put together a strong partnership. Hannah batting through for 59* from 61, Vic falling for 20. The total proving too much however and the Golds finished on 4/98, Prospect bowling tightly and making it tough for the girls.
 
The B Browns played the first game of a double header at beautiful Bice oval against Southern Districts. In fairness it was a beautiful day. Chloe Frick won the toss again and batted. A steady stream of early wickets from our top order was concerning, although the run rate was steady. 4/39 and 5/55 was concerning but Shaina Altman stepped up along with Tif Thackeray. Shaina was exceptional and scored 15 from 18 balls and the 2 girls got us up to a total of 88. Tif also making 15. Emily Jones was slapped for an early 4 but exacted revenge off the last ball of the first over. Tight bowling and fielding kept the pressure on Southern and at 5/40 they were feeling confident. A late flurry however brought the game to life and a tight over from Sophie Johnson was needed to finish off the game, which she duely delivered. Emily 2/13, Sophie Roberts 2/10 (5 wides!) and Chloe 1/4 were the wicket takers. Southern finishing on 5/81. 2 in a row for the Browns after a drought of nearly a year.
 
The A Grade girls had been keen observers of the game as many of them arrived early to show theri support. Something i know was appreciated by the B Grade Girls. It was great to see an early warm up and we were ready to go as soon as the toss was made. it was also FANTASTIC to see that the playing tops had arrived. To say the girls looked 100% better on the field was an understatement. Especially having Beth Lowe not wearing her playing top from the under 12's. Then we played like it! Bridget got us away again and thanks to some strange bowling options from Southern we got away to a quick start. Popey missed one early after getting her bat caught in the crease, but Sarah Lowe and Bridget punished the Southern bowlers. Both failed to make a really big score but WInnie and Eliza Doddridge picked up where they left off. Winnie playing her best knock for us, SO FAR, and with Eliza batting superbly and hitting cleanly we were able to get to 4/151 from our 20. Much to Wisey's delight as she predicted a score over 140. Bridget 42 from 29 balls, Slowe 24 from 24, Winnie 25 from 29 and Eliza 31* from 24 lead the way. An even contribution, selfless batting and aggresive running being pivotal. Tahlia McGrath came out swinging early and stayed for a good time but a very short time with Jamo picking her up in the 3rd over. From that point Southern played for a draw. Our girls bowled bowled tight lines, a huge improvement from last week, and kept the pressure on in the field throughout, giving away very little. After 20 overs Southern finished on 6/70 chasing our score. Strange tactics. Jamo 1/12, Popey 2/6 in 4 overs with 5 wides, Winnie 1/9 and Shae 2/9 taking wickets. A great win with contributions from many players. This gives us 2 wins from 2 in the 20/20 comp, currently the only undefeated side. A big day on the 29th as we play a double header V Sturt and West Torrens. A chance to really set up the season. This week against Southern again inthe 50 Over comp. A win badly needed as we sit outside the 4 at the moment. Maybe Jak will stop talking long enough this week to let me get a word in!
 
Cheers,

Under 16 Whites vs Tea Tree Gully


Day 1 Vs TTG we arrived at Memorial oval to a lush outfield and green deck.  Captain Sam Carruthers did his best with the toss but we were sent in to bat after tails fell . Our openers looked solid and progressed the score to 28 before we lost the first wicket. With a new batting line up we continued to have batsman get a start but could not quite get the big partnerships we wanted. All batsman played small  starting innings but didn’t go on.

Tom VanderJeugd  34, ( first game this Season after injury) ,Sam Rahaley 17 ( first game in the 16 Whites after his outstanding Ray Sutton innings last week) batted well and had useful partnerships with  good contributions from Ben Cox 20 , Cooper Harrod 14 not out and David Hamann a quick fire entertaining 22.
All out for 159 looks a par score on this strip. We had 7 overs at them in the end with 1/9 the result  which gives us a chance next week with us needing to take all our chances a must as we had a couple which could have had us in a dominant position

Early wickets next week can wrestle the game back to be on our terms.Day 1 Vs TTG we arrived at Memorial oval to a lush outfield and green deck.  Captain Sam Carruthers did his best with the toss but we were sent in to bat after tails fell .

Day 2.

We arrived to a better deck and with TTG needing 152 at just over 2 per over and 9 wickets in hand. Instructions were simple , bowl in pairs to get wickets full and straight and let the ball and pitch do the work. Fielding and building pressure were paramount.

The first session went wonderfully well with good bowling and excellent intensity in the field . This coupled with 2 excellent run outs from Fred McClure and Cooper Harrod showed we were switched on. Bowling standouts during the session Cooper Harrod, David Hamann and Ben Cox.

 

At tea we had them 7/59 and on the ropes. The session after tea as is often the case we let took the foot off the throttle and allowed them to sniff a chance albeit a slim one. We readjusted at the drinks break and then finished the job. 

An excellent performance to get the season back on track.

Ben Cox with 5/25 along with his valuable 20 batting the man of the match . 

David Hamann , Johnno Connolly, Riley Slack and Sam Carruthers  all bowling at 2 or less and over so the pressure was fantastic and Cooper Harrod seemed to be bowling an invisible ball as the batsman could hardly find it. 2 nice stumpings by Tom VanderJeugd to finish the innings some very nice cream on the cake. TTG all out for 120.

Fred McClure a standout in the covers was a real assett cutting off many drives particularly in the critical early stages to deny the batsman runs .

We had 12 overs to finish and were 1/40 at the end with the batsman all having valuable time in the middle and playing controlled and sensible cricket to not offer wickets and potential points to TTG with no benefit to our percentage.

Sam Carruthers as captain showed some creative and intuitive cricket sense with aggressive fields and good bowling variations. All in all a 8/10 performance . Lesson from the match is the need to keep intensity and concentration for every over.

U16 Red, Round 3 vs TTG, Day 2

 General  Comments Off on U16 Red, Round 3 vs TTG, Day 2
Nov 162014
 
 
World renowned, 7th generation tightrope walker Nick Walenda recently walked between two skyscrapers in Chicago. No tether. No safety net. Blindfolded. You might say no room for error.

Well our 16 Reds walked a tightrope on Saturday. They had to attack the stumps and take 8 wickets. They also had to defend the paltry target of just 85 runs. Against the top team, coming off an outright last week. No safety net. No room for error. 

If you were looking for an analogy for this game, some classics would spring to mind… Colditz, Alcatraz, Stalag Luft III which inspired The Great Escape featuring Steve McQueen. We had dug a tunnel for ourselves, but it went nowhere near the fence.

But in the spirit of those Hollywood blockbusters, plot twists and turns can make even the most futile situation seem possible. All we had to do was take a breath, dig deep and believe! The old adage that reality is stranger than fiction would be surely tested by the end of the day.

The first hour tested everyone’s patience with the target being whittled to just 49. The scales of possibility were rusted in their favour, but the seeds of greatness are sown in such adversity and James de Preez and James Ingram seized their opportunity and turned the tide with 3 for 4. The game was back in the balance at 5 for 59.

Cricket needs good leadership for the team to function effectively. With Harrison Rahaley and James Cleggett, our two appointed leaders for the season seconded to 1st Eleven and Senior duties respectively, Hamish Porter felt like a comfortable pair of shoes as he was parachuted into the captaincy for this week. And he did an outstanding job under the difficult circumstances we found ourselves in.

Excellent tight bowling, good rotations and well placed fielders were playing their part in a game that was now a 50-50 bet.

6 for 65 saw the odds slightly in our favour, but as all good punters know, a streak can finish just as quickly as it starts. Ashley Eckermann and John Bliss had consolidated our chance with nagging line and length. This was now becoming an epic. Round for round, blow for blow. Ali v Frazier.

In Chicago, the 40km/h winds were buffeting Nick Walenda as he edged towards the end of the 454 foot cable, 150m above the ground. There was no room for error. Only a 10-second delay in the television broadcast in case he fell.

At 6 for 84, it felt like our feet were slipping from the cable. No tether. No safety net. No room for error.

Hollywood movies have introduced some forgettable quotes. Especially the B-grade ones. In a recent one on Fox Classics the projectile that was slated as a “head remover” didn’t have a patch on the ball that travelled like a bullet at Hamish Porter’s face in the slips. Good thing he has big hands! 7 for 86 and the pendulum had swung again. John Bliss owes him one.

A cracking straight drive boundary, by a tailender no less, another three overs had gone past and defeat was again staring us in the face. 7 for 93. No safety net. No room for error.

Caught sub-fielder Evans, bowled Eckermann, with just a hint of controversy kept our waning spirits alive. Reality is stranger than fiction. It really is. Ricky Dumas’ finger was vertical. The batsman thought “bump”, Ricky clearly thought “chump”. There was no point in a challenge. There was no camera. 8 for 93. 8 for 94. 8 for 95. 8 for 97. And then the script went awry.

Rain had delayed the start of this game against ladder leaders TTG, and ultimately it would play a significant part in the result. The shower that caused a slightly early tea brake turned into a drizzle that would eventually see the game called off almost on the stroke of 5pm.

Had we cheated defeat? or had we been denied one of the great victories? James Ingram’s dad remarked as we walked away from the ground: “We’ll never know”. I thought to myself… do we really want to?

Cricket’s rich chronicle of stories had just been embellished with another intriguing chapter.

Ray Sutton Shield – Round 4 – Kensington v Northern District – 9 Nov 2014

 General  Comments Off on Ray Sutton Shield – Round 4 – Kensington v Northern District – 9 Nov 2014
Nov 162014
 

Ford Oval hosted the fourth round of the Ray Sutton Shield on a breezy but bright afternoon.

Northern Districts won the toss and batted. They ground out 6 for 91. The pace bowlers Will Warrick, Liam Greber, Will Montgomery, Max Floreani and Luke Pedlar bowled tight lines and lengths and gave them nothing.  Sam Bruce took 3 wickets with his off spin. Jack Packer bowled 5 neat overs of leg spin, and landed them well, taking one wicket.

The Brown fielding was again very solid. The boys gave nothing away. Jack Bear was neat behind the stumps and Will Montgomery threw the stumps down for a run out.

Our batting got underway. We passed the total comfortably with Luke Pedlar making a good 61 retired with some blistering cover drives and Tully Kennett a soild 38 retired.

The rest of the overs were bowled out by Northern Districts under sufferance and Kensington finished with 2 for 190.

Under 14 Red Day 2 vs TTG

 General  Comments Off on Under 14 Red Day 2 vs TTG
Nov 162014
 

The Under 14 reds were at home in the second week of a 2 dayer against the TTG 14’s, having bowled them out last week for 157. This week we needed to bat well and score a little over 2.5 runs an over to get us home. The weather was overcast but dry when we started and so we went out with some confidence in our ability to get the runs. A couple of early wickets though and our confidence started to wane. The TTG boys bowled quite well but caught and fielded superbly and we were struggling. Then it started to rain lightly. By tea we were in a spot of bother at 6 for 70 odd, but the rain was steady and we all thought a delay was certain. Our umpire had other ideas though and in a downpour after tea we started again. 30 minutes later, after constant rain, the game was finally called with Luke Pedlar looking really good on 36 and Sam Bruce staying with him at the other end on 4. Finishing at 6/87, the draw probably a favourable result for us in the end.

After scoring a massive 354 last week we only needed to bowl and field well to win. With TTG being 0/7 after 10 overs the game was ours thanks to skipper Max Floreani and Darcy Hunkin. Jack Packer 3/39, Will Quigley – Smith 2/35 and Jack Bear 2/26 picked up the wickets in a fantastic team win
