Bombers grab gutsy win
AN Aaron King-inspired Gawl-
er Central made a good fist of
its chase against Freeling in the
Barossa & Light Cricket Asso-
ciation on the weekend, ulti-
mately falling 46 runs short of
Set 341 to win by the Water
Hens, the Tigers made a shaky
start, losing Brandon Swan and
Michael Davis early to the bowling
of Brian Montgomery.
Opener Andrew Frackowski
(28) battled hard for his runs be-
fore being dismissed by Ben Parish
and when Raed Hannun cleaned
up Jamie McCafferty for a duck,
Central was in all sorts at 4/84.
King and Ben Pfitzner steadied
the ship with a 98-run stand, the
Tigers' biggest for the afternoon.
Montgomery struck again to end
the union, sending Pfitzner on his
way for a well-compiled 49.
Just as he had done earlier in
the innings, Montgomery deliv-
ered back-to-back wickets when he
proved too quick for Cooper Slate,
who made just five.
The inability to the Tigers' top
order to build partnerships cost
them in the end, with King the
only real constant of the innings.
Batting at number four, King
was unstoppable, smashing an un-
beaten 148 from 170 balls.
Freeling had no answers for the
diminutive all-rounder as he belt-
ed 19 fours and a six in a sublime
Matt Perry and Dave Miller pro-
vided some lower-order resistance
to give their side some hope, but
in the end too much was left to
He did his best to keep the chase
ticking along with some expan-
sive play towards the end of the
innings, although he would most
likely have run out of time if he
had not run out of partners first.
Brian Montgomery (5/101) was
by far the best of the Water Hens'
bowlers, while Robert Montgom-
ery picked up two wickets.
Parish also bowled beautifully,
albeit without luck at times, and
finished with the super-economi-
cal figures of 1/32 from 19 overs.
King's heroics can't bring win
KAPUNDA produced a fighting perfor-
mance to reel in South Gawler's target of
168 in the Barossa & Light Cricket Asso-
ciation at Dutton Park on the weekend.
The home side entered the seemingly
straightforward chase full of confidence but it
did not take long for the Lions to show they
were up for a fight.
Still chasing their first win of the season,
the visitors started strongly thanks to a blis-
tering opening spell from Mark Sims.
Sims sent both Kapunda openers on their
way cheaply to reduce the hosts to 2/22 and
spice up the contest.
Joey Brown (56) and Luke Hoffmann dug
in to restore a bit of order to proceedings for
the Bombers, with Brown scoring freely and
Hoffmann providing the perfect foil.
Hoffmann ground his way to 11 before
Patrick White outfoxed him, sparking a mid-
White trapped danger man Sam Ryan in
front soon after for just five and Trent Hunt
also departed to leave Kapunda teetering at
5/85, still 84 runs short of victory.
Matt Ryan (82*) provided some brief re-
spite for his side, pushing the score into triple
figures, before the dangerous White again
came to the fore.
White snared the important scalp of
Brown and followed that up by having Rob
Johnson caught at the wicket to give South
a genuine sniff.
With the score at 7/112, it was anyone's
game but the experience of Ryan shone
through as he and Mark Johnson (25) pro-
duced an 80-run eighth-wicket stand to see
the Bombers home.
They pushed onto a first innings total of
223, with the match-winning Ryan cashing
White (4/33) was the pick of the bowlers,
while Sims and David Golder finished with
two wickets apiece.
The Lions went back into bat to finish the
afternoon, with Riley Barker entertaining the
crowd with a sharp 48 not out.
They finished on 3/66 after an eventful 11
Bulls show their might
GILBERT Valley staked its claim as the
early season favourites in the Barossa &
Light Cricket Association on the week-
end, ripping through a hapless Sandy
Creek with a superb bowling display.
After setting Sandy Creek a modest 222 to
win, the Bulls' bowlers ran rampant to set up
a 103-run victory for their side.
Cockies openers Andrew Kokot and Kurt
Roberts both fell with the score on 10 as Jus-
tin Schahinger (1/15) set the tone early for
Stephen Hands (21) and Chris McLean
(39) looked comfortable at the wicket during
a 65-run partnership, with McLean negotiat-
ing the Gilbert Valley bowlers with ease.
He has been the Cockies' form batsman
this season and looks set to deliver a big score
sooner rather than later.
Just as Sandy Creek looked to be getting
on top, Hands offered Tom Smith (2/23) a
return catch, sparking a huge collapse.
James Vandeleur (3/25) got through the
dangerous McLean's defence soon after to re-
duce the Cockies to 4/85, but that was only a
glimpse of what was to come.
Smith struck again to remove Connor
Robinson for just two and when Tom Con-
nell got in on the act, it was clear that it was
not going to take the Bulls long to finish the
Connell snared three of the final four wick-
ets to finish with 3/20 as the Sandy Creek tail
went down without a fight.
All in all, the Cockies lost 8/43 from the
point of Hands' dismissal, with only three
players reaching double figures.
The fact that one of these was number
eight Brandon Nottle is even further cause
for concern for Sandy Creek.
While Connell finished with the best fig-
ures for the Bulls, it was Vandeleur and Smith
who did the majority of the work early to put
their side in a winning position.
