The SA Scorpions will take on New South Wales at Hurstville Oval in the WNCL final on Sunday, November 29th. The Scorpions will go in to the game feeling confident despite losing last year’s final against NSW, having beaten them this season by 1 run in a nail biter. Kensington’s trio of Bridget Patterson, Katelyn Pope and Sarah Lowe have travelled to Sydney with the team. Bridget has been in great form this season opening the batting, and Kate has excelled in the field. We wish the team well.
Kensington Under 16 Whites vs Glenelg
Once again the cricket weather shined upon us with a cool 24 degrees and not a cloud in sight.
The oval was in pristine condition giving to a lovely day for cricket.
Will Warrick and Lachie Parker opened the bowling and as with the week before Kensington went about collecting wickets at a fast rate of knots in a very short period of time. Lachie Parker was playing his debut game and had a fabulous start seeing him on a hat trick in the 8th which unfortunately did not eventuate but ended the day with impressive figures of 3/10 off 5. All the bowlers performed extremely well: Will McGowan taking 2/27 off 8, Fred McClure 2/7 off 7.3, Will Warrick 1/10 off 4, Max Monfries a very tidy 1/1 off 3 and Darcy Hunkin 1/7 off 4.
Our fielding was once again of a very high standard with Jack Konnis taking 1 catch, our wicky Liam Winskill taking 3 and Arham Hashmi taking a screamer. Kensington had them all out for 63 off 32 overs.
After an early tea,Harry Edmonds and Tully Kennett opened the batting and we reached the target in the 19th with only one wicket down. Glenelg were keen to call it stumps. But after much discussion and a very good argument put forward by our eloquent team manager Sam (with the assistance of his wing man Marty) the match keep going.
We continued batting with Harry Edmunds staying in throughout proceedings notching up a magnificent 100 not out, his first hundred for the club. Arham Hashmi belted 58 with some big hitting before being dismissed with at Liam Winskill coming in to make a run before play was called. The team is full of very talented players with the ability to support each other and play as a very tight and cohesive unit, well done boys. Man of the match Harry Edmonds.
A quick note to parents. Glenelg put on a fabulous tea for the boys, putting our efforts of late much to shame. We have a few parents sending good food along when it is our home games but there is an awful lot of Shapes, packet lamingtons, chips etc. If we could please maybe just pick it up a bit and even just sent some fruit if a bit rushed it would be a lot better.
Firstly a reminder that there are no games this week due to the test match. Training however is still on this week for those wishing to hone their skills. We will be there from 4 on Wednesday.
Results from the last 2 weeks. (Sorry Mary, no big write up this week either as school reports still going and it also would be crazy long. Will resume after the test match!)

Sunday 22nd November V Prospect at Prospect Oval
Round 4 at Ford Oval and again we were greeted by a perfect day and what looked a good track in the clash with Glenelg in a 1 day match.
Skipper Adam Clements succeeded in winning the toss and we decided to have a bat. We were immediately on the front foot with a boundary first ball as both openers Angas Marshall and Jed Spence went about getting us off to a good start . The batting was very positive and busy until we lost Jed for 18 and the score on 46. In came Sean McCullum and like all our batsman was also busy from the start. Whilst we lost a few wickets all batsman got starts and with good scoring intent the scoreboard continued to tick with 200 runs in mind. Good innings from Angas 31 , and Will Montgomery 27 set us up to have a bit of a dash in the last 10 over’s. Things slowed slightly before Tom Van der Jeugd and first game debutant Nic Wilson entertained with some great hitting Tom eventually out for 47 having strained an upper leg but letting his bat do the talking. Nic Wilson finished 30* ( including 18 off one over from a very yappy Glenelg bowler who may have wished he had said nothing ) and James Dupreez 6* getting us to 5/188 a good score as the pitch whilst looking good, occasionally had a few tricks in it.
With our confidence and attitude and effort high we set about undoing Glenelg with an excellent display of bowling and fielding. All bowlers got in on the act with Ashley Eckermann again grabbing a wicket in the opening over to finish with 2/23 , Adam beating the bat regularly and bowling superbly 2/7 off 7 over’s, Riley Slack 1/19, James Dupreez 2/11, Sam Bruce 1/12 and Greg Tanti in his first game this season back from Firsts duty coming on as bowler #6 and probably the most lively #6 bowler in U16s history chipping in with 2/13 off 6 over’s.
Glenelg all out for 96 in 32 over’s and another very good win with contributions from all 12 players either with bat , ball and from all in the field.
We get the next week off due to the historic first day/night test and then resume in a 2 day match against a good side, TTG away from home as we welcome our next challenge.
Well done guys.
Man of the Match Tom V.

Playing at home against a strong Glenelg Liam Greber got us off to the perfect start after losing the toss and in the field first, clean bowling one of their best 3rd ball of the match. Eight overs later they were 3/26 Liam with all three. Their best batsmen was still in and threatened to take control of the match but the spin twins of Jack Packer (2) and Jack Read (3) turned the game our way in a 16 over spell grabbing 5/41 including their gun batsmen. Ben Belperio cleaned up the last 2 wickets for no runs all out for 94 due to excellent bowling and fielding which was first class holding all our chances two each to Luke Pedlar and Matt Slack. After 12 overs we were 0/25 – six balls later 2/25 with both openers out. Enter Christian Leddicoat and Sam Rahaley both in excellent form and both coming off last innings centuries for Kensington. 16 overs later the game was won with both batting beautifully with us finishing 2/157 at the end. Sam finished on 65no and Christian 64no – both played extremely mature and sensible innings. A very good win against a quality side 🙂

We travelled to The Paddocks for a rematch of last seasons grand final where we were the victors 🙂 Northern Districts won the toss and batted first but Sam Warrick soon had one of their best out and another 2 overs later. They progressed steadily until the 16th over when Peter Unerkov had their number 3 smartly caught by Jack Packer. 3/51 after 17 overs and Peter Unerkov then bowled an amazing over, wickets on the second, fourth and fifth balls all LBW and all in swinging yorkers 3/0 in one over ! They struggled to 101 with Sam Warrick finishing with 3 wickets and Jack Read a handy 2. We got off to a poor start losing a wicket in the second over but then it was 20 overs and 140 runs before we lost the next. Sam Rahaley batted extremely well out for 40 and down the other end was the captain Christian Leddicoat 100no off 70 balls. It was Christian’s 2nd hundred in consecutive innings for Kensington. He finished on 136 off 99 balls including 8 sixes and 14 fours. Quote the Northern Districts coach after the game – ” I am stunned I have never seen a batting display like that ” We finished on 6/235 off our 40 overs a great team effort in the field but amazing effort by 2 boys with the bat 🙂
Round 3 a 1 dayer vs Northern Districts . Good conditions a pitch which asked to be batted on and a team with some new inclusions. Well done to Liam Winskill and Will McGowan making their U16 red debut. We won the toss and Skipper Adam Clements said lets bat. Openers Angas Marshall and Jed Spence looked busy early till we lost Angas caught on the boundary for 7 and we were 1/16. Will Montgomery joined Jed and immediately he looked very solid and went about settling in. Will and Jed took us to 89 steadying the ship and looking good till we lost Will for a well compiled 21 and looking to have all his skill and confidence back in good nick.
Arham Hasmi came in and hit the ball very hard casing some field readjustments but unfortunately out and at 3/98 off 32 we needed some hitting to secure a reasonable score. Tom Van der Jeugd in next . Jed departed shortly after for 59 . Enter James “BamBam” Dupreez which saw a 35 run partnership at quick pace before Tom was out accelerating the run rate. Ashley Eckermann joined James and with both exhibiting some lusty hitting and very quick running, (James can turn 1 into 3) very quickly we finished at an excellent 5/171 off our 40 over’s. James 37* off 24 balls and Ashley 14* off 7 balls.
We set about defending the total and almost immediately had Northern Districts in trouble Ashley deciding the furniture needed rearranging as he helped himself to 3/5 all bowled. We continued to take wickets at random as the opposition limped to 5/19 at tea. Set the task to get them all out quickly 5 over’s later it had been done Northern all out for 27. All bowlers were exceptional with 8 wickets either bowled or lbw as we kept it tight and hit the stumps regularly. James completed the batting , bowling double with 2/2 off 5, Riley Slack 2/1, Sam Bruce 3/7 Adam 0/2 off 5 and debutant Will McGowan 0/6 off 4.
We had 12 over’s 2nd Innings batting and changing the line up a little finished at 3/39 with Riley 10*and Adam 10*. Now back in front of the win loss ledger we play a one day at home vs Glenelg next week before a weekend off for the Test .
Excellent effort from the entire team with batting, bowling and fielding well above par to grab a big win.

U16 whites vs Northern Districts.
The day’s proceedings started on a dramatic note with one of the umpires cars being rear ended at the entrance to the oval. Conditions were perfect for cricket, cool and overcast.
Kensington came out of the blocks fast and furious with captain Will Warrick striking with the first ball of the match clean bowling the Northern batsman. This was closely followed by a 2nd wicket also bowled by Will Warrick seeing Northern Districts 2 for 1. Going into the 2nd over Max Monfries cleaned bowled their batsmen leaving them 3 for 2. Wickets continued to fall with the run rate at a virtual standstill. Our bowlers continued to bowl beautifully with the spinners doing damage towards the end. Once again our fielding was of a very high standard with a fabulous run out thrown by Tully Kennett and a brilliant catch taken by Zac Norris. Final score all out for 58.
Bowling figures – Will Warrick 3/14 off 5, Max Monfries 1/11 off 5, Darcy Hunkin 1/6 off 5, Fred McClure 2/10 off 8 and Will Quigley-Smith 2/10 off 3.
An early tea break was called and play resumed with Tully and Harry Edmunds opening for Kensington. After a slow beginning the boys started to put the runs on, we were looking comfortable until Tully was caught with what could be the catch of the season in mid wicket. We had made the required runs by the 22nd over and were now batting for extra points. Final tally 3/115.
Batting figures – Harry Edmunds 55, Tully Kennett 28, Jack Konnis 14 no, Corey White 4 no. Well done Whites, another convincing win. Man of the match Harry Edmunds.
U16 Whites vs West Torrens
Day 1 Will Warrick won the toss and Kensington batted on a green Marryatville pitch.The first half of the innings was challenging for the batsmen but with a few solid partnerships with Jack Konnis and Liam Winskill we were around 190 by tea which had us in a great position to set a good total by the end of the day.
The message was clear,we needed more runs to give us a bigger margin going into the 2nd day of play. The middle order took up the challenge in a convincing manner, forming good solid partnerships and laying on a further 100 runs. Final tally 9/288, a very good total for the opposition to chase.Best batsmen – D Hunkin 64 not out, J. Konnis 55 off 57, W. McGowan 46 off 42, L Winskill 35 off 76. Great effort on the Marryatville pitch and heavy outfield.
Day 2 saw Kensington come in with a clear intent, to win and win convincingly. By tea time the boys had West Torrens all out for 87, a very tidy performance shown by all our bowlers.
All he bowlers took wickets with a really even performance. Everyone took their opportunity.
After tea we sent them back in and Will McGowan decide to unleash notching up a further 5 wickets of which the first four were clean bowled.Our fielding was of a very high quality with some incredible catches taken by the boys, a couple of stand outs (but by no means the only) being Tully Kennett and Jack Konnis and Corey White.
The boys tried valiantly and were superbly lead by first time skipper Will Warrick but we were unable to claim the outright as their tail enders dug their toes in and played defensively keeping them to a 2nd innings total of 7/56.
A great effort by our team to take 17 wickets in one day of which 12 were either bowled or LBW, a great start to the season.
Best bowling figures over both innings – Will (on fire) McGowan 6/31, Jack Konnis 3/23, Darcy Hunkin 2/20, Will Warrick 2/23 and Zac Norris 2/3. Man of the match Will McGowan for his 6 wickets and 46 runs.
