SANDY Creek cruised to an eight-wicket vic-
tory in its one-day clash with Kapunda in the
opening round of the Barossa & Light Cricket
Association at home on Saturday.
Kapunda was sent in to bat, after the Cockies won
the toss, and was in trouble early when openers Craig
Reimann and Austin Smith fell cheaply with the to-
tal at just 11 runs.
Sandy Creek's Stephen Hands and Lee Hill bowled
beautifully in tandem, each snaring the wicket of an
opening batsman, maintaining a tight line and length
that saw no runs scored easily.
Bombers Joey Brown and Mark Johnson arrived
at the crease under serious pressure, but batted with
composure to begin building the total.
The pair rotated the strike well, and brought up
the team's half-century without the further loss of
When Brown brought up his 50, Kapunda had
clawed its way into the contest.
Sandy Creek would soon regain the ascendancy,
however, with Corey Roberts trapping Johnson leg
before wicket for 40 and Brown falling victim to Hill
shortly after for 53.
With the score at 4/104, and the overs beginning
to tick by, Kapunda's middle order struggled to com-
bat the Cockies' well-oiled bowling attack.
Kallum Brown, Matt and Sam Ryan, Rod Brown
and Conor White all fell at regular intervals without
reaching double figures as Sandy Creek's bowlers put
on a clinic.
Adam Turrell and Henry Smith remained not out
at the end of the innings, with the Bombers posting
Hill was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with
3/23, while Hands was almost unplayable and ended
with 1/8 off eight overs that included three maid-
Sandy Creek did not begin its chase as it would
have hoped, as Hands was dismissed by Joey Brown
for one early in the innings.
However, a Bombers' win began to look less likely
as each over progressed, with batsmen Bill Fuller and
Travis Gebauer setting themselves at the crease.
The pair took the total to 47 before Fuller fell vic-
tim to Conor White, as Kapunda clung to hopes of
Cockies' skipper Chris McLean arrived in the
middle and ensured his side would take the points,
proceeding to punish the bowling to all corners of
the Sandy Creek oval.
White copped the brunt of that punishment, con-
ceding 44 runs from five overs, while Austin Smith
suffered the same fate after bowling four wicket-less
overs for 33.
The Cockies, with McLean and Gebauer at the
crease, were in total control and reached the required
total in just under 23 overs to notch an emphatic
McLean finished not out on 65, while Gebauer re-
mained unbeaten on 36.
Cockies coast to win
does it all
GREENOCK'S David Goern pro-
duced an outstanding performance
with the bat and ball to get his side
over the line in a nail-biting two-
wicket win against Truro in the
Barossa & Light Cricket Association
A1 reserves on Saturday.
Goern took 4/19 from seven overs as
Greenock restricted Truro to 9/177, but
would later be required to play a pivotal
role in the run chase.
Greenock looked down and out at
8/115 in reply, but Goern, combining
with Chris Hoffman, hit a match-saving
30 not out batting at 10 to snatch the
win with two overs to spare.
Lyndoch kept Tanunda to 171, 16
runs short of the required total, to notch
its first win of the season.
Matthew Johnson was the pick of the
Lyndoch batsmen, hitting an important
41, while Tanunda's Alex Petty smashed
50 in his side's run chase.
Lyndoch's Ryan Muirhead took 4/30.
Mallala chased down Eudunda-
Robertstown's total of 9/120, with two
overs to spare, in a solid display.
Opener Kelly Curnow put Mallala in
a strong run-chasing position, scoring
56, while Matthew Birchmore scored a
handy 24 in support.
Brad Wilson was Mallala's best bowler,
finishing with 3/7.
In A2 action, Sandy Creek made light
work of South Gawler to secure an im-
pressive 102-run win.
Batting first, Sandy Creek looked
shaky early on but strong batting from
Allan Wallwork, 35, and Kurt Roberts,
78, set the Lions a difficult total of 209.
South struggled all the way through its
chase to be all out for 107, with Sandy
Creek's Jason Power the destroyer with
5/22 from eight overs.
Gawler Central fell well short of the
228 set by Kapunda in the A3s, manag-
ing only 8/88 from its 40 overs.
Batting first, Kapunda set out to post
a big total with 93 from Trent Hunt, 43
from Matthew May and 44 from Mike
Goldsmith helping the cause.
In reply, Centrals struggled to get any
fluency in its batting, losing wickets at
regular intervals thanks to a well-round-
ed performance from the Kapunda
Danny Menzel was deadly accurate for
Kapunda, taking 2/13 from seven overs.

Salisbury West posted a respectable 201 in
its match against Virginia to see the contest
evenly poised at stumps on the first day.
Salisbury West lost 3/34 early in the in-
nings, but solid contributions right through
the middle order helped steady the side.
Virginia's bowlers toiled hard to dismiss
their opposition in just under 70 overs, with
Nathan Warren (4/61) and Alex Leo (3/56)
the star performers.
In grade two, Riverside will enter day two
of its clash with Angle Vale in a strong posi-
tion after finishing at 7/270 on Saturday.
An impressive knock of 94 by Chris Edge,
and 66 by Adam Colbourne, laid the foun-
dation for the innings and gives the River-
side bowling attack plenty of runs to defend
when play resumes.

strongly on day one against ATCO before
a middle order collapse saw it dismissed for
Top three batsmen Darren Phillis, Da-
mien Ellis and Kean Sparkes had the side in
