Nuri in impressive form
Vale's winning ways continue
NURIOOTPA continued its impres-
sive form with a solid win over Ka-
punda in the Barossa & Light Cricket
Association A1 match over the
Opting to bat first, the valley Tigers
had an early setback when opener Jordan
Roesler (3) fell to Sam Ryan with just eight
runs on the board.
Travis Jungfer strode to the crease full of
confidence and took charge of the innings,
hitting 29 of Nuri's next 34 runs before
losing batting partner Luke Steinborner to
Austin Smith for nine runs.
Jungfer became Smith's next victim short-
ly after and, with skipper Brett Lydeamore
making just one run as his replacement,
the match was soon in the balance with the
Fortunately, for the visitors, their middle
and lower order soon set about turning
Phil Smith hit an important 26 batting at
number five, before Anthony Prior led the
lower-order assault with a crucial 64 runs
batting at number seven.
Handy cameos from Ryan Foulis (20),
Zac Fuss (21) and Damien Schiller (28)
saw Nuri reach 238 before being dismissed
in the 66th over.
Smith finished with 3/36 as the pick of
With a big task ahead for victory,
Kapunda's run chase got off to a horror
start when Jungfer and association leading
wicket-taker Daniel Doecke combined to
remove its top three batsmen with just 21
runs on the board.
A 29-run partnership between Rob
Johnson and Matt Ryan breathed some
hope into the Kapunda innings, but when
the former was bowled by Prior for 23 the
score was heavily in Nuri's favour at 6/68.
Ryan remained defiant until the end,
taking the score to 123 before falling to
Schiller for 51.
Some last-ditch hitting from wicket-
keeper Rod Brown (15) got the score to
141, but his dismissal ended Kapunda's run
chase 98 runs short of the required total.
Doecke was again outstanding, tak-
ing 5/30 to surge ahead in the association
ANGLE Vale's undefeated Para
Districts Cricket Association grade
one season continued on its winning
way on Saturday with a close victory
After posting 9/162, Angle Vale
found itself wicket-less in the early stag-
es of its bowling effort with Virginia's
Nick O'Reilly and Anthony Bascombe
combining for a 69-run opening stand.
However, when O'Reilly was stumped
for 23 it signalled the beginning of the end
for Virginia as the middle order collapsed
cheaply, losing 6/45.
Some tail-end defiance from Ashley
Nicholas (14 not out) nearly helped pull
off an unlikely comeback, but in the end
Angle Vale held on to win by 17 runs.
Salisbury West's bowlers terrorised One
Tree Hill's batting line-up to dismiss it for
just 75 runs in 19 overs.
Set the difficult chase of 243, follow-
ing a dominant 116-run knock from
Westies' Anthony Lewendon, One Tree
Hill's David Cornish and Adam Walter
started positively with a 34-run opening
But it was all downhill following
Cornish's dismissal for 12, with the side
losing its remaining nine wickets for just
Adam Ozolins was the chief destroyer,
snaring 8/30 with the ball to add to his 56
runs with the bat.
In the remaining games, Craigmore
triumphed in a low-scoring affair over
Parafield Gardens where no side scored
over 130, while Rose & Crown cruised
past Central United's score of 185 to claim
In grade two, Riverside came away with
an outright win over Smithfield.
After dismissing Smithfield for 95 in its
first innings, Riverside made 3/211 before
declaring its innings.
Smithfield then declared its second in-
nings 126 runs in front at 8/242, with
Riverside chasing down the runs with eight
wickets in hand.
Ben McMullen made 68 in Riverside's
chase following his stunning 8/25 with the
ball in the first innings.
Salisbury West made 9/239 before
dismissing One Tree Hill for 161 to win its
grade three clash.
David Ward was the rock of the
Westies' innings, making 65 at the top of
Salisbury West batted again, finishing
5/159 in its second dig.
Riverside outplayed One Tree Hill in
grade four to win by 42 runs, with opener
Steven Hughes making an unbeaten 79.
In grade five, ATCO chased down Rose
& Crown's score of 149 with just under
10 overs to spare to notch its third win of

AN unbeaten century from Craig Todd has
guided Light Pass to a fighting win over
Mallala in the Barossa & Light Cricket
Association A1 reserves over the weekend.
After arriving at the crease at 1/16, Todd
enjoyed partnerships with the in-form Wade
Gripton (37) and Brian Norman (26) to build
the total to 8/222 at the end of the innings.
In reply, Mallala never looked likely, losing
regular wickets to be dismissed for just 120.
Norman added to his batting performance by
taking 4/10 with the ball.
A strong bowling effort helped Lyndoch claim
the points over Greenock.
Led by a seven-wicket haul from spearhead
Ryan Muirhead, Lyndoch ripped through the
visitors for just 109 runs.
An unbeaten 35 from Ben Williams was cru-
cial in getting Lyndoch across the line with just
two wickets to spare.
In the remaining match, Tanunda's 9/305
proved far too hard to chase for Eudunda-
Despite 58 runs from opener Sam Nietschke,
there was little left to cheer about for Eudunda-
Robertstown as it was dismissed for 158.
It performed better in its second innings,
avoiding an outright defeat by finishing 4/144
An in-form Rhys Handtke smashed an un-
beaten 83 to lead Sandy Creek to a comfortable
win over Tanunda in A2.
The knock is Handtke's third consecutive
score over 50, and proved vital in chasing down
Tanunda's score of 161 with seven wickets to
Gilbert Valley's bowling attack made light
work of Nuriootpa in A3, dismissing it for a pal-
try 56 runs.
In reply, the Bulls reached the target without
losing a wicket, with Andrew Bruce smashing an
Kapunda remains one game clear in sec-
ond spot on the A4 ladder after accounting for
Lyndoch in 31 overs.
Set 184 for victory, Mark Good (72 not out)
and Luke Hoffman (47 not out) combined for an
impressive partnership to steer Kapunda home.
In A5, Tanunda held on to beat Light Pass
with three wickets and two overs to spare.
Chasing 130 to win, Tanunda's Jake Hartigan
got his side off to a great start with a well-made
56.Some cheap wickets through the middle order
made it a tight contest, with the home side nar-
