A CAPTAIN'S knock of 101 from Ian
McMillan ensured Freeling took the
points over Nuriootpa in day two of its
Barossa & Light Cricket Association
contest on Saturday.
Set 159 by Nuriootpa on day one, Freeling
amassed 357 runs from its 75 overs in reply,
passing the visitors' score with just one wicket
down to notch a dominant victory.
The Water Hens started their innings
positively with openers McMillan and James
Young (22) negotiating the Nuri pace attack
to bring up the 50 without loss.
A running mix-up brought about Young's
demise, but by that stage Freeling had worked
its way to an advantageous position at 1/67.
Raed Hannun joined his skipper at the
crease, and picked up where Young had left
off, as the pair worked the bowling to all parts
of the ground.
With the score ticking over, and the margin
slowly being whittled away, Nuri was desper-
ate for a breakthrough.
Daniel and Luke Doecke toiled relentlessly
in attack but could not pierce the defence of
At just one wicket down, McMillan and
Hannun passed the 160-run target with their
Hannun, perhaps suffering a lapse in con-
centration after passing Nuri's total, did not
last much longer, with Daniel Doecke bowling
him for a well-made 43.
Wicketkeeper Ben Heinrich (2) fell shortly
after, but any celebrations for the fielding side
would be short-lived.
Freeling, looking to make a statement, kept
the foot to the floor throughout the remainder
of its innings, with most batsmen contributing
on the scoreboard.
Following McMillan's retirement on 101,
Ben Parish (36), Bart Ryan (86) and Sam Car-
michael (35) all chimed in through the middle
order to post an association-high score for this
In the end, it was a tough day in the field for
Nuri, rotating through nine bowlers in search
Daniel Doecke was the pick of the bowlers,
taking 1/28 from nine overs.
Freeling will look to repeat the dose this
week against Kapunda, while Nuriootpa will
hope to bounce back on its home deck against

ANGLE Vale has set Central United the mammoth
task of chasing 311 for victory when play resumes in
the Para Districts Cricket Association this Saturday.
Having made 234 in the previous match, Angle Vale en-
tered the match confident in its batting stocks and was not
disappointed by the output.
Shane Cahill (94) and the in-form Austin Smith (69 not
out) led the charge as the runs continued to pile up.
Last round's hat-trick taker Brad Woodward toiled hard,
taking 2/86 from 22 overs in a day that certainly belong to
the batting side.
Central United is no slouch with the bat, evident by its
declaration on 284 last round, and will need to produce its
best to hunt down Angle Vale's total.
Virginia must bowl well in order to defend its total of 239
runs against Rose & Crown when the two sides resume play
A five-wicket haul from Matthew Feltus was not enough
to prevent Virginia posting the handy total, helped by
37 from recruit Shaun Lay, but the question is 'will it be
Rose & Crown proved its scoring capabilities last round
by smashing an imposing 346, the bulk of which came from
its top three batsmen.
Virginia's Anthony Bascombe and Anthony Seccafien will
need early breakthroughs with the new ball to give their side
its best shot at victory.
In other matches, Parafield Gardens is 2/23 in reply to
Salisbury West's 224, while One Tree Hill is 0/21 chasing
263 against Craigmore.
Meanwhile, in grade two, Riverside declared at 2/330 af-
ter just 60 overs before having Craigmore 1/37 at stumps
on day one.
Luke Harris and Adam Colbourne were instrumental in
Riverside's innings, smashing 136 and 126 not out, respec-
tively, to have their side in a commanding position.
In grade three, One Tree Hill has Salisbury North 1/19 in
reply to the 154 it posted on Saturday.
One Tree Hill's Kean Sparkes showed he is just as handy
with the bat as he is the ball, following up last round's five-
wicket haul by scoring 82 runs.
Riverside has Craigmore reeling at 6/62 in grade four, fol-
lowing a day where wickets tumbled freely.
After being dismissed for 133 in just 51 overs, Riverside
rallied with the ball to move into the box seat ahead of day
two this Saturday.
Angle Vale is also in a favourable position after taking six
Rose & Crown wickets before stumps in their grade five
After being dismissed for 174, Angle Vale surged to have
the visitors 6/82 at stumps, with opener Trevor Rayner still
at the crease on 27.

LYNDOCH failed to capitalise on a good
batting start to fall short in its Barossa &
Light Cricket Association A1 reserves
contest with Light Pass on Saturday.
Set 191 for victory, Lyndoch began posi-
tively with Stephen Scally (27) and skipper
Nathan Goulding (21) both making promis-
However, tight bowling from Light Pass saw
the pair dismissed with just 63 on the board,
with the remaining eight batsmen falling for
just 77 runs.
Craig Todd was the star, taking three wick-
ets before smashing 27 not out in Light Pass'
second innings of 2/87.
Mallala dismissed Greenock for 101 to
record an emphatic victory, with Jamie Good
and Kelly Curnow starring with the ball.
Good was a class act, taking 4/19, while
Curnow cleaned up the tail by taking three
wickets in an over.
Greenock's batsmen struggled to get starts,
with only two players making double figures.
Mallala batted again, finishing at 3/155
from 36 overs in its second innings, with Matt
Birchmore capping off a brilliant game with
an unbeaten 50, having scored 152 in his first
Scores for the match between Eudunda-
Robertstown and Truro were not provided.
In other grades, Dave Miller guided Gawler
Central to victory over Sandy Creek in A2
with a well-made 73.
Set 184 for victory, Central had a number
of contributors with the bat including Chris
Bilney (40) and Matt Perry (26) helped the
side finish at an impressive 9/255.
South Gawler triumphed in a tight tussle
with Angaston, chasing down the required
234 with three wickets to spare.
Nathan Willis top-scored with 58 not out.
Gawler Central's Chris Lovett took 10
wickets in a day as his side rolled Nuriootpa
Nuri was all out for 46 in its first innings,
before narrowly avoiding an outright defeat
by finishing at 7/103.
Lovett took a match-winning 6/16 in the
first innings, followed by 4/17 in the second.
South Gawler recorded a good win over
Sandy Creek in A4, helped by a four-wicket
haul from Brad Hoepner.
Hoepner took two key top-order wickets,
before causing headaches for the middle order
to see the Cockatoos dismissed 64 runs short
In a remarkable display, no Light Pass bats-
man made it into double figures as it capitu-
lated for just 30 against Tanunda in A5.
Chasing 289 for victory, the Lighties never
looked likely, with Tanunda's Aden Radzevi-
cius ripping through the top order to finish
