Valley beats star-studded South
GILBERT Valley scored its first A1
win for the Barossa & Light Cricket
Association season in remarkable fashion,
beating a star-studded South Gawler by
18 runs in Saturday’s one-day match.
The Lions’ inclusions of Redbacks’ bats-
man Travis Head, and Tea Tree Gully grade
cricketers Sean Nottle, Joel Chapman and
Darcy Judd-Smith, gave the side an edge,
however work was still to be done to get the
Batting first, Gilbert Valley’s Kym
Vandeleur and Matt Norman blunted the
new ball well to get the score ticking along
nicely in the early stages.
With 27 runs on the board Norman was
trapped in front by Nottle for 13; his dismiss-
al saw Vandeleur take charge of the innings.
Craig Mullins (4), Thomas Smith (6) and
James Vandeleur (24) did well to support
their opener, who raced to 65 and scored the
bulk of the team’s 107 runs in the process.
Following his dismissal, the Bulls’ lower or-
der compiled a further 42 runs before being
dismissed for 149.
With plenty of batting firepower in the
shed, South looked all but certain to chase
down the required runs for victory.
The Lions’ pursuit started perfectly as
Jacob Ahern and Stephen Hogan combined
for a 51-run opening stand.
The Bulls’ Justin Schahinger produced
the much-needed breakthrough for his side,
removing Hogan for 15 and bringing star
import Travis Head to the crease, in his first
match since the death of Australian Test play-
er Phillip Hughes at the SCG.
However, spurred on by his earlier wicket,
Schahinger produced a brilliant spell of bowl-
ing to remove Head (7) and skipper Brodie
Barker (0) in quick succession to give Gilbert
Valley hope at 3/66.
Matt Trzeciak joined Ahern at the crease
and together they put on a much-needed 35
runs to take the total to 3/101 and put the
Lions within reach of victory.
Disaster struck when a mix-up led to
Trzeciak being run out for 24.
Remarkably, Ahern (35) was also run out
shortly after and suddenly the Bulls were in
with a sniff.
Craig Mullins was thrown the ball and
had an immediate impact; he took 4/14 in a
match-winning seven overs to dismiss South
for 131 and claim the points for his side.
Schahinger did the early damage, finishing
LYNDOCH remains perched atop the
Barossa & Light Cricket Association A1 re-
serves ladder following its crushing victory
over Eudunda-Robertstown on Saturday.
Playing in a one-day match Lyndoch’s bowlers,
headed by George Clarridge (3/7), ripped through
the opposition batting card for just 48 runs.
In reply, Lyndoch opener Stephen Scally
smashed 21 at the top of the order to get his side
home in just under eight overs.
Tanunda proved too good for Greenock, win-
ning by a comfortable 152 runs.
After setting Greenock 244 for victory, thanks
to a 62-run knock from Jon Justin, Tanunda’s
bowlers caused havoc with the ball.
Mitchel Boschen and Peter Mernagh each took
three wickets as Greenock crumpled for just 91
In another low-scoring affair, Light Pass se-
cured a 10-wicket win over Truro.
Truro batted just 28 overs to set the Lighties
100 for victory, with Sam Donovan top-scoring
In reply, Light Pass openers Nathan Koch (45
not out) and Craig Todd (44 not out) combined
for an unbeaten 103-run partnership to get their
side over the line.
An unbeaten 95 from Matt Perry helped
Gawler Central to victory over Nuriootpa in A2.
Nuri’s Ben O’Dowd (53) was the shining light
of his side’s innings, which ended after 36 overs
with 136 runs on the board.
Perry, batting at the top of the order, led the
way as the Tigers hunted down the required runs
with 10 overs to spare.
Light Pass got the better of Gawler Central in
A3, winning by 95 runs.
Lighties’ Brett Nitschke (92 not out) was key
to his side reaching 3/221, before a tight bowl-
ing performance restricted Central to just 5/126
from 40 overs.
A stellar knock of 142 from Kapunda opener
Henry Smith has helped his side to a solid 84-run
win over Gilbert Valley in A4.
Smith’s innings was the ultimate solo perfor-
mance, with only two other batsmen making it
into double figures as Kapunda was dismissed
with six overs remaining.
Smith then followed up by taking 3/21 with
the ball, as the Bulls were dismissed for 137.
Morgan cemented its spot at the top of the A5
table after defeating Greenock by 38 runs.
Batting first, Morgan skipper Brad Wilksch
(61) led the way to help set Greenock 146 runs
In reply, Greenock could only muster 107 runs
as Jarrod King (3/9) got his side over the line.
