Trinity stands tall
TRINITY Old Scholars moved into
second place after pulling off one of
its best defensive efforts of the season
on Saturday to defeat Goodwood by
25 runs in round six of Adelaide Turf
The future was looking grim for the Old
Scholars after scoring a lacklustre 120
runs in their first innings.
Goodwood, too, had a shaky start,
resuming day two at 2/7, but a big effort
in the field was a must if the TOSers
hoped to secure win number six.
It all unravelled before it really began
for Goodwood, which finished all out
for just 95 in the 47th over.
Mitch Dearing continued on from a
brilliant innings with the willow to take
3/13, and, together with Brad Schaper
(3/15), led the Old Scholars' charge.
A-grade debutant Nick Hooker also
carried on well after a wicket late on
day one, taking 2/17 for the day.
Trinity elected to bat once again in the
second innings and, while there were
no real standouts, most batsmen played
their role, with six surpassing double
Eythan Barraclough (nine) was the
first to fall, caught LBW, but Maurice
Walker chipped in with a solid 20
before he was caught and sent to the
Daniel Elvin (18) was bowled soon
after, while Ryan Roberts raced to a
quick 13 off 11 balls, before his shot,
too, found a Goodwood fielder.
Two of the next three wickets fell for
less than 10 runs, before Hooker (16)
arrived to steady the ship.
Captain Alex Cotter raced to 27 off 11
balls to keep the Old Scholars chugging
along, while Austin Smith (22) and
Ben Cameron (eight) were left standing
in the middle to finish the innings at
The Old Scholars will need their best
effort this Saturday, when they face
top-placed and unbeaten Pooraka at

Joeyʼs ﬁeld day
IT may not have been the result Kapunda cricket
captain Joey Brown would've wanted during
his Australian Country Cricket Championships
debut, but he's come home with a lot to
Brown was awarded the Doug Walters fielding
award after taking five catches and three run outs
for South Australia Country during the nine-day
competition in Wollongong, saying the accolade
was certainly unexpected.
"I thought I played okay, but I was a bit surprised
(to receive the award)," he said.
"I thought a wicket-keeper would've won it."
The 20-year-old picked up nine wickets with the
ball, including 3/39 against Victoria Country, and
chipped in 74 runs as a competent tail-ender.
Brown said he was told the competition would be
tough, and he did face some quality competition.
was a really high level, really tough," he said.
"I bowled okay, it was hard to bowl with a
powerplay at the start, and there were some
"Every day was a challenge, you had to be at the
top of your game all the time.
"I just went out each day to do my best and have
"I really loved it, I enjoyed my time over there.
"I love playing country cricket, but it was really
good to play at that level."
The SA Country side entered the competition as
the reigning champion looking to defend its title,
but a couple of close losses saw the 'Outbacks'
finish in fourth position.
"We had a couple of unlucky games that were
50/50, but I thought we had a pretty good
carnival," he said.
Freeling captain Ben Parish contributed a
consistent 92 runs and took three catches for the
Outbacks, while former South Gawler spinner
Sean Nottle took a whopping 13 wickets for an
outstanding economy rate of 3.7 -- bagging six
catches along the way.
For now, Brown is looking to focus on his footy
-- after playing for Central District last season
he has started training with the Adelaide Crows'
But the multi-talented athlete said the country
championships was a great chance to see how
he compares to some of the best cricketers in
"I'm trying to have a crack with footy, but
(country champs) was a good opportunity to cram
(high level cricket) into two weeks," he said.
Virginia thumps rivals
IT was pink round out at Angle Vale, but
the side would have seen red after it was
thumped by cross-town rival Virginia by
51 runs in Para Districts grade one cricket
Virginia made the most of being sent into
bat first, as an Alex Leo half-century led his
side to 7/140 by the end of the innings.
The Vale was capable of chasing down
such a score, but the wheels fell off quickly
thanks to a strong bowling display by John
Natsias (4/22), reducing the side to being
bowled out for 89 in the 34th over.
Similarly, Craigmore belted ATCO by 76
runs, thanks to an economical, five-wicket
haul from Michael Richard.
Electing to bat first, Craigmore slogged its
way to 6/157 by the end of the allocated
overs, led by a half-century from captain
ATCO's reply never had a chance as
Richard tore through the order with figures
of 5/26, restricting the side to a dismal 81.
Meanwhile, Central United beat One Tree
Hill by 49 runs, thanks to an all-round effort
from Brad Woodward.
Woodward smashed 82 runs to help United
to 9/210 by the end of the allocated overs
-- despite an economical 4/9 from Adam
The Billiegoats worked on a reply, fronted
by Damien Ellis (38), but it wasn't enough,
as Woodward again starred -- this time with
bowling figures of 3/34 -- to help bowl them
out for 161.
In the final grade one match, Parafield
Gardens thumped Salisbury West by eight
Westies were far from their blistering form.
Willi Sewell top-scored with 37 runs, as his
side posted 9/143 by the end of the allocated
David King's unbeaten 47 willed the
Gardens over the line -- all four batsmen on
the day contributed well as the side charged
to 2/144 by stumps.
In grade two, Salisbury North belted Angle
Vale by eight wickets.
Batting first, the Vale's Andrew Skelland
(38) and Michael Anders (34) were its best
performers, as the side formulated a steady
8/144 by the end of the allocated overs.
North's Jayden Saint carried the bat for his
side, smashing an unbeaten 60 to help North
easily surpass the required total and finish
Similarly, Two Wells recorded a tight,
15-run win over Adelaide Warriors.
There were no real standouts in Two Wells'
innings, but solid knocks from opener
William Hart (28) and captain Dylan Wise
(27) were enough to put the side all out for
Adelaide pressured hard all innings, but
top efforts with the ball from Lachlan Goss
(5/37) and Wise (3/21) halted the side's run
chase at 100 in the 22nd over.
Meanwhile, Riverside fell just 20 runs short
of victory against Dublin.
Adam Moss (39) led the charge for Dublin,
while Shaun Bayram (25) was strong in
support as the side raced to 149.
Riverside worked to formulate a reply, but
fell agonisingly short, all out for 129.
In the final grade two match, Central United
defeated Salisbury West by two wickets.
Opener Duane Huston led the charge with 32
runs, but his efforts were barely supported as
the side struggled to 127.
A brilliant, unbeaten performance from
United captain Jordan Webb (62) helped his
side to 8/130 by the end of play.
In grade three, Smithfield defeated One Tree
Hill by eight wickets.
Just two players reached double figures as
the side was restricted to just 45 runs.
It took less than nine overs for Smithfield to
surpass the required total, finishing on 2/47.
In grade four, Riverside fell an agonising
seven runs short against Salisbury West
-- despite holding Westies to just 106 runs.
Finally, in grade five, Adelaide Warriors
thumped Virginia by seven wickets, easily
reaching the 89 runs required for victory in
just 18 overs.
