Home' The Bunyip : October 22nd 2014 Contents SANDY Creek is right on top in its clash
with Gawler Central in the Barossa & Light
Cricket Association, dismissing the visitors
for 152 in just 42 overs on Saturday.
On the first day of the two-day contest,
Central struggled to get on top of the accurate
Cockatoos' bowling attack, headed by an in-
form Lee Hill, losing regular wickets to be dis-
missed with 30 overs left in the day's play.
Sandy Creek batted well in response, losing
just a few wickets on its way to being a com-
manding 3/107 at stumps.
Things went awry for Gawler Central early
on, losing openers Brandon Swan (2) and An-
drew Frackowski (29) with just 39 runs on the
With David Coombs and Elliot Stibbs at the
crease, Central began to steer itself out of trou-
ble, with the pair forging a promising 39-run
Coombs worked his way to 20, before a
Corey Roberts' delivery rattled his stumps to
again have Central unsettled at 3/79.
With Stibbs looking solid at the crease, and
last week's run-scorer Jamie McCafferty at the
other end, a big partnership would be needed
to swing things back in Central's favour.
For a moment it looked promising, with the
pair playing well to see the score past 100, but
it wasn't long before Sandy Creek danger man
Lee Hill struck to remove McCafferty (7) and
Stibbs (42) in quick succession to regain the
ascendancy for his side.
Michael Davis (3) came and went, as did
Alastair Crothers (13), both falling victim to
Daniel Koch, and when Roberts snared the
wicket of Brad Hunt (1), Central at 8/119
looked in danger of being dismissed cheaply.
Central's recruit Joss DenEngelse showed
some lower-order flare with the bat, and set
about boosting the total for his side, but soon
ran out of partners, with the dismissals of
Mathew Knight (4) and Ben Ward (0) leaving
him unbeaten on 29.
Hill was instrumental with the ball for the
Cockies, finishing with 4/29, while Koch's
3/29 and Roberts' 2/26 were equally as vital.
With plenty of overs remaining in the day,
Sandy Creek openers Bill Fuller and Andrew
Kokot strode into the middle with the inten-
tion of getting their side off to a great start.
It wasn't to be, losing Fuller (2) early, with
just 12 runs on the board, after being trapped
in front by Ben Ward.
Kokot was striking the ball well, and with
Travis Gebauer giving good support at the
other end the pair began to build the Cockies'
Central rotated its bowlers in search of a
breakthrough, but still hadn't claimed another
wicket as the score ticked past 50.
Michael Davis finally produced the wicket
that his side was desperately after, dislodging
Gebauer for 28.
He later struck to remove the dangerous
Kokot (61), but with the score at 3/99 things
were still well in Sandy Creek's favour.
At stumps, Chris McLean and Nathan Gum
were each not out on 12, with Stephen Hands
next to bat.
Davis (2/15) and Ward (1/13) were the only
Central bowlers to take wickets.
With Sandy Creek needing just 46 runs for
victory when play resumes on Saturday, Cen-
tral will need some quick breakthroughs to
have a shot at victory.

Cockies right on top
ANGASTON will be confident it has
the firepower to chase down the 172
runs posted by Gilbert Valley on day
one of its Barossa & Light Cricket
Association two-day contest on
Angaston posted an association-high
247 last week against Nuriootpa in the
opening round, and will believe it can
produce a similar performance when
play returns this Saturday to clinch the
After winning the toss and electing to
bat, Gilbert Valley's innings started with
a promising 26-run opening partner-
ship between Matt Norman and Jack
Vater (10) was the first to go, removed
by Brett Burgess, and when Ben Antonie
removed Craig Mullins (12) things were
evenly poised with the score 2/45.
Norman, coming off a solid 38-run
performance against Freeling last week,
again looked set to post a score, but
some confusion with batting partner
Kym Vandeleur saw him run out by
Greg Bain for 30.
Determined to make amends, Vande-
leur took it up to the Angaston bowling
attack as he set about becoming the pil-
lar in Gilbert Valley's innings.
James Vandeleur (11) provided sup-
port for a short period, before being
caught behind off Scott Rathjen with
the score 74.
Jamie Molineux (2) batted only a
short time before being skittled by Brett
Woodards, bringing Jack Connell to the
With the innings teetering at 5/86,
Gilbert Valley was in desperate need of
a partnership between Vandeleur and
Connell to drive the total to a defend-
The pair added 37 runs before Con-
nell (18) was caught behind off Bur-
Sensing the need to take control of
the innings, Vandeleur upped the ante,
scoring freely while losing partners Tom
Connell (2), Luke Michalanney (7) and
Tod Griffiths to take the total to a re-
Vandeleur finished on 65, dismissed
by Sam Gardham, while, for Angaston,
Brett Burgess (3/34) and Rathjen (3/44)
were the pick of the bowlers.
Angaston had the tough task of fac-
ing one over from Jack Connell at the
end of the day, with opening pair Dylan
Schmidt and Brett Woodards making it
to stumps with their wickets intact.
The home side will resume on Satur-
day at 0/2, tasked with the tricky pros-
pect of whether to try and get the runs
quickly or grind out the total over the
course of the day.

Powerhouse Freeling prepares for win
NURIOOTPA will need to bowl extremely
well if it is to defend its total of 159 against
Freeling's powerhouse batting line-up on the
second day of its Barossa & Light Cricket
Association match this Saturday.
Nuri was the underdog heading into the con-
test, having been newly elevated this season and
coming up against a Freeling side whose record
over the past two years speaks for itself.
Batting first, Nuri openers Luke Steinborner
and Luke Doecke began positively as they looked
to give their side a good foundation.
After taking the total to 16, Doecke (7) edged
a Russell McDonald delivery to wicketkeeper
Ben Heinrich as Freeling snared a crucial early
Travis Jungfer strolled to the crease and, with
Steinborner, continued the difficult job of facing
a revved-up McDonald bowling a tight line and
The pair was determined to dig in and did
well to see off the openers and bring about a
Fortunately, for Freeling, a bowling change
was exactly what was needed, with Raed Han-
nun getting Jungfer caught behind for 14 and
swinging the momentum back in his side's fa-
With Steinborner playing well, Nuri captain
Brett Lydeamore recognised the importance of
supporting his opener and batted sensibly to
keep the score ticking over.
Steinborner looked on track to notch his half-
century but, on 45, failed to negotiate a Ben
Parish delivery to be caught by Sam Carmichael,
with Nuri now 3/95.
Parish soon struck again, removing Lydeamore
for 34, leaving the Nuri middle order exposed
with just 108 on the board.
McDonald and Hannun were soon rewarded
for their sharp bowling, taking five of the last
six wickets between them, despite some good
lower-order batting from Anthony Prior (22), to
give Freeling a gettable total to chase when play
resumes this weekend.
Each of Freeling's bowlers was economical
throughout the innings, ensuring no easy runs
McDonald bowled 16 overs to claim 3/29,
Hannun bowled just under 12 overs to snare
4/32 and Parish finished with an impressive
2/37 off 15 overs.
In a rare occurrence, wicketkeeper Heinrich
also finished with five dismissals.
