Home' The Bunyip : December 24th 2014 Contents AN unbeaten 105 from Joey Brown
has helped Kapunda score a timely
seven-wicket win over Gawler Cen-
tral in the Barossa & Light Cricket
Association and remain just seven
points outside the top four.
The victory puts Kapunda two games
clear in fifth position, but also on the same
amount of wins as Freeling, Sandy Creek
and Nuriootpa, which occupy three of the
top four spots.
After winning the toss and electing to bat,
Central began well with skipper Michael
Davis and wicketkeeper Matt Perry taking
the score to 49 without loss.
Craig Reimann was the first bowler to
strike, removing Davis for 25, before Mike
Goldsmith repeated the dose to dislodge
Perry (14) shortly after.
At 2/50, the game was poised to go either
way, with the Tigers' batsmen struggling to
get a big partnership going as Kapunda's
Rob Johnson started to build a rhythm with
Nearly all batsmen in Central's middle or-
der made starts -- Ben Pfitzner, Aaron King,
Elliot Stibbs, Ali Crothers and Brandon
Swan all reached double figures -- but just
when a partnership looked likely, Johnson
He claimed five key wickets as the
Tigers batted out their overs to finish a solid
Chasing a formidable total, Kapunda
needed to start strongly and Brown and
Mark Johnson did exactly that.
They took the score to 43 before Johnson
was caught off the bowling of Dave Miller
With Johnson back in the shed, Brown,
together with Craig Reimann, worked hard
to take the game away from Central.
The pair withstood the Tigers' attack
to combine for a match-winning 140-run
Reimann eventually fell to Pfitzner for
63, but by that time Kapunda needed only
11 runs for victory, which it achieved with
eight overs to spare.
Pfitzner was Central's best bowler, finish-
ing with 2/8.
