Like our white team we were challenged with playing the second team and needing to win to finish Minor Premiers 🙂 We bowled first and Sturt batted extremely well getting to 80 in the 25th over before we got our first wicket thanks to Liam Greber whose 21st wicket for the season saw him win the competition bowling trophy 🙂 It was then 139 and the 36th over before we got the next and they then smashed 41 off the last 4 overs to finish 2/180 off 40 overs. The Sturt camp were extremely confident and loud but I explained to our boys that we were not playing primary school average cricket and that 181 was achievable if we played with intent, played our natural game and never give up. Peter Unerkov and Sam Burgess got us off to the perfect start before Sam was out in the 8th over with the score on 28. Christian Leddicoat arrived at the crease like a man on a mission and quickly took control. He played magnificent shots to all parts of the ground on his way to 116no off 60 balls ! His hundred came off 52 balls as he smashed 18 x 4 and 4 x 6. A masterclass innings which saw him finish on 587 runs this season to win the competition batting trophy. Peter Unerkov played the perfect role down the other end getting 28 and then Sam Rahaley with a solid 18. We won by 11 overs and 5 wickets a tremendous win against the second best opposition. The umpires and Sturt people were stunned having never seen a performance like that before and all of us Kensington people simply smiled 🙂 Congratulations guys Minor Premiers 🙂

Challenged with needing to win to finish Minor Premiers and playing the second team our boys stood tall 🙂 Batting first Campbell Watts and Max Floreani got us off to an excellent start 0/33 off ten overs. Campbell was then out for 19 and young Samuel Warrick came in and took the game away from Sturt smashing 68 off 59 balls ! Max Floreani batted well for 46 and Will Rice crunched 38 off 30 to finish 5/194 off 40 overs. Sturt was always under pressure being 3/24 then 6/88 thanks to excellent fielding including 3 run outs. Ben Belperio 2/20 and Will Rice 2/36 were best with the ball. Well done guys Minor Premiers 🙂

We entered the last minor round game versus Sturt with the opposition needing to win to contest finals. Greeted by a perfect day and a slowish pitch and even slower outfield we won the toss and decided to bat. Things didn’t start well with us losing opener Angas Marshall in the second over and then we struck some trouble losing Arham Hashmi , elevated to 3 and soon a runout for Jack Konnis had us at 3/15. Debutant U16 red player Luke Pedlar joined Jed Spence and we needed to consolidate. Luke looked well at home at this level playing some great shots before being caught for 12 At 4/34 we were in some trouble as Nick Wilson came to the wicket and he and Jed had a 51 run partnership before losing Jed to a well batted 42. Adam Clements made a swift 13 off 9 including a big 6 and then Nick and Liam Winskill played some entertaining cricket as we got to a competitive 6/129 Nick 34* and Liam 13* As has been the case most games this season we grabbed a early wicket with Riley Slack bowling the opener and we had them 1/3. it took a while to get the next wicket as they went slow and cautiously as we pushed the run rate up with some tight bowling but couldn’t get the breakthrough. Enter Jack Konnis who bowled very well to get the other opener and this opened the floodgates to grab some wickets.They pushed towards the target and we needed the No 3 who looked dangerous , and again Jack stepped up to produce a sensational 35 metre direct hit runout. We eventually finished our 40 overs with Sturt 9/124 and 6 runs short. Well done again as we found a way to get across the line . Bowling honours to Riley with 3/19 ,Adam 2/24 , Jack 2/31, Darcy Hunkin 1/14 Sam Bruce 0/19 and Arham 0/10 Man of the match Jack Konnis. We now play a home semi final vs West Torrens as a 2 day game. Well done to the team for an excellent performance and all of the players who helped to get us here. We also managed to get the Bowling and Batting #1 honours for the minor round for the whole competition ,Adam Clements with 30 wickets and economy of 2.58 and Jed Spence 435 runs at 48.33 well done lads outstanding seasons. . ______________________________________________________________________ This email has been scanned by the Symantec Email Security.cloud service.

The last minor round of the season and the Whites needed a win to secure a home final. Asked to bowl by the Sturt captain this soon became a real problem for them as we stampeded through their top order to have them at an amazing 7/17 off 19 overs. Clever seamers Will McGowan, Skipper Will Warrick,Lachie Parker and Max Monfires all enjoyed the wicket party that also included a great runout. Fred McClure took catch of the season in the gully, yes it was that good ! At the drinks break, we emphasised a continued effort to finish the job. Unfortunately the Sturt batsmen batted a lot better and managed to bat the next 20 overs for the loss of 2 more wickets to finish at 9/67. Leg spinners Fred McClure and Will Quigley-Smith chipped in with a wicket each. Quite an amazing bowling and fielding performance by our talented cricketers. Small totals can be dangerous to chase but not this time. Tully Kennett and Liam Nichol had an outstanding opening partnership of 59 in 18 overs before Liam departed for 24. Left handed Fred McClure joined Tully to push the total to 95 in the 28th over before Tully fell for 38. Fred hit a fluent 23 and Corey White chipped in with 15 not out when we finished at 4/122 after 35 overs. A really good performance by the Whites in readiness for Semi Finals next week. Man of the match was Fred McClure for his runs,amazing catch and a wicket. Gary Slack Bonnetts Saddleworld

CONGRATULATIONS to the Kensi Girls on going Back to Back in the 20/20 Competition. After many years of getting there and not quite getting over the line, the last 2 years have been a just reward for a lot of hard work from a talented group. 4 new faces in the 10 this year with Bridget, Popey, Hannah and Kelly coming in to the side. Slowe lost the toss and for the 6th time we found ourselves in the field for the Grand Final. After a horror first 7 balls, the girls turned it around and from that point were extremely dominant over the Sturt team. Slowe and Popey got wickets in the 2nd and 3rd Overs and from there the team tightened the screws. Good field placings, excellent fielding and awareness along with a terrific enthusiasm for the whole innings wore Sturt down and we dismissed them for 77. Sturt had beaten us twice during the year, our only 20/20 losses. Shae and Wisey kept the pressure on and with the Sturt crowd yelling encouragement to their players they decided to take a risky overthrow and Bridget and Jordy gladly accepted the present and Sturt fell from 4/66 to their final total of 77. Shae picked up 2 very important wickets and yet again Monique, back from injury, showed how tough she is to play and in 2.5 overs took 3/6 to have Sturt bowled out in 18.5 overs. We struggled to chase a small total earlier in the year, but the determination of this group to succeed was going to prove too strong. Bridget fell early and was followed soon after by last years dominant player in Eliza and we were 2/9. Hannah was not going to be able to bat due a knee injury suffered when desperately diving to save a ball earlier, but the girls felt comfortable, or as comfortable as Wisey can get at a cricket game. Slowe and Jordy set about restoring things and despite a couple of heart in the mouth moments, raced the score along to 57, 21 more needed. They then fell in consecutive deliveries to get the tension up and gave the weird Sturt supporters a chance to say even more odd things, but Popey and Kelly were having none of that and they raced us past the score in 15.2 overs, to spark some big celebrations. Follow the link for the Scorecard.

Club record breakers Jamie Panelli and Jake Brown spoke about their start at the club as 11 year olds and how much the club means to them and the important influence of key people through their cricket journeys. Former Test batsman Wayne Flipper Phillips entertained everyone with some great cricket stories and Oren Klemich from Klemich Real Estate did a brilliant job selling the entire auction list of 18 items for the club.

Chasing 134 for victory we started poorly and were 3/32 in the 10th over. Sam Warrick and Sam Rahaley steadied the team batting very well before Sam Warrick was out for a well made 23, then Sam Rahaley copped an excellent delivery and was out for a very good 32. At 5/90 we needed calm heads and Jack Bear 41no with help from Matt Slack and Liam Greber saw us safely home declaring 10 in front. We had 13 overs to bowl and grabbed 3 wickets and could have had 6 if we had held out catches. A solid win with Mitchell George 4/10 in the first innings our Man of the Match 🙂 Sent from my iPhone

Having won the game on the first day we batted on declaring 90 runs in front and only losing 3 wickets thanks to an outstanding 51 no from Caleb Hoberg. Leaving 45 overs to get 10 wickets an achievable target with a side full of bowlers. However ET batted very well with the openers putting on 79 for the opening partnership. We managed 6 wickets at stumps two each to Will Rice and James Woods and once again tidy bowling from Jake Bilsborow 1/14 off 8 and Ben Belperio 1/13 off 6. A comprehensive win with Ben Belperio’s 5/19 in the first innings the Man of Match 🙂 Sent from my iPhone

Week 2 of the U16 Whites vs East Torrens

 General  Comments Off on Week 2 of the U16 Whites vs East Torrens
Feb 212016

Last week our team compiled a competitive 179 against the team sitting right next to us on the ladder so to say the game was important is an understatement. The plan was to bowl full and keep it really tight to put the Torrens batsmen under pressure from the start. 1/0 in the 2nd over courtesy of some outstanding fielding from Will Cowling in the covers to runout the opener with a brilliant throw to where keeper Corey White was already at the stumps to get the bails off. A few overs later Will Cowling was in the action again with a super catch low down at cover and Torrens were 2/12. The pressure in the field was superb and this translated in to another runout soon after, you guessed it, that man again Will Cowling in the covers together with Corey White at the stumps. Luke Pedlar was introduced in to the attack and torrens suddenly were 5/38 with 2 wickets to Luke. Fred McClure got involved in the wickets with a well flight end leg spinner to lure a well taken catch to Will Quigley-Smith at mid on. Captain Will Warrick bought back opener Will McGowan in to the attack and suddenly 2 more wickets had fallen. Leg spinners Will Cowling and Will Quigley- Smith then chipped in with a wicket each to finish the East Torrens innings at 70. All 6 bowlers contributed with a wicket for a comprehensive victory. With 28 overs still to be bowled, our team wanted to bowl again and at the end of the day had the Torrens team 2/71. A great effort from the team, well done. Mano of the Match was Luke Pedlar for his 54 runs, 3 wickets for 18 when bowling as well as 2 catches. Gary Slack Bonnetts Saddleworld

U16 Red Day 2 vs East Torrens

 General  Comments Off on U16 Red Day 2 vs East Torrens
Feb 212016

Having set East Torrens 230 to win we set about the second half of our game plan to achieve a win. Skipper Adam Clements although a little banged up got us off to a great start with a wicket in the first over . Riley Slack took the new ball from the other end and took little time in putting his influence on the game getting the next 3 wickets bowling 2 and another courtesy of a great catch to Jack Konnis. Two run outs from Adam Clements showing his great arm as the visitors got into all sorts of trouble trying to up the run rate but simply throwing away wickets. The wickets continued to fall at regular intervals and only a very good innings from the # 4 kept them going , unfortunately we dropped him on 58 with the batsman then going to to make 104. We eventually wrapped it up with East Torrens all out 173 after 58 overs. Standout bowling performances from Riley 4/52 , Sam Bruce , 2/29 , Max Monfries 1/17, Adam 1/30, Darcy Hunkin a miserly 0/9 off 8 overs and Jack Konnis and Jed Spence combining with some wily leg spin to with 0/30 off 10 overs between them. Jack also taking 2 ripper catches in slips. Job well done and consolidating top spot and a home Semi Final with 1 week to go before then.There were some excellent performances with Man of the Match going to Jed Spence for his fantastic 94 run innings on week one . ( yes the author did cop some comment for not mentioning this last week) from various quarters. Great job boys. . ______________________________________________________________________ This email has been scanned by the Symantec Email Security.cloud service.

Hi All,

The 1st Grade girls get a chance to add to our history on Sunday with a Grand Final Appearance in the 20/20 final at Adelaide Oval. Our 6th Final in the last 7 years, and an opportunity to even up the ledger a bit as it currently sits 1 win 5 losses!. It's also a chance for Bridget and Popey who were away with the Scorpions last year and missed the opportunity to be an active part of the winning team. Also to Hannah and Kelly Armstrong who are in the team this year and looking for their first Kensi flag.

Congratulations to the following girls, good luck play well, do your best and we will come out on top:

Sarah Lowe (C), Bridget Patterson, Amy Wiseman, Katelyn Pope, Shae Daly, Hannah Armstrong, Kelly Armstrong, Eliza Doddridge, Monique Draycott, Jordan Doecke

Get down to watch the girls. Game starts at 10:50, players please try to be there an hour before so we can get settled in and also get in a solid warm up to be ready to go.

Players have free parking tickets for the day, for supporters I'm sorry but if you want to park in the Northern Car Park there is a $13 charge for the day. Would love to see as many there as possible, hopefully a few of the male players can also get along and watch some seriously talented cricketers.
