Home' The Bunyip : November 5th 2014 Contents GAWLER Central faces the tricky
task of chasing down the remaining
104 runs for victory over Gilbert Val-
ley when its Barossa & Light Crick-
et Association match resumes this
The game remains in the balance af-
ter the Bulls were dismissed for 167 and
Central reached 3/64 at stumps on day
After winning the toss, Central sent
the opposition in and set about trying to
make some early breakthroughs.
Gilbert Valley openers Matt Norman
and Jack Vater proved difficult to dis-
lodge, before a delivery from Central’s
Joss DenEngelse pierced the latter’s de-
fence to have the Bulls at 1/34.
Norman settled in at the crease, but at
the other end his batting partners were
finding it difficult to follow suit.
James Vandeleur (11) made a handy
start before falling victim to Ben Ward,
while the next Vandeleur to arrive, Kym,
suffered the same fate as Vater to be
bowled by DenEngelse for nought.
After making much of his side’s total,
Norman (42) nicked one through to Da-
vid Coombs and, with the score at 4/69,
Central began to put its nose in front.
However, Gilbert Valley’s middle or-
der hung tight, led by a handy 29 from
Jamie Molineux, and began to accumu-
late some runs.
Josh Vater (10), Zack Hier (14) and
Jack Connell (17) all chipped in to keep
the runs ticking over, and with Luke Mi-
chalanney smashing a handy unbeaten
21 at number 10 Gilbert Valley had
posted a defendable total.
DenEngelse led the charge for Cen-
tral, finishing with an economical 4/35,
while Miller snared an important 3/28.
With 26 overs left to play, Central’s
openers Brandon Swan and Michael Da-
vis arrived in the middle intent on get-
ting their side off to a positive start.
Swan found it difficult to get the Bulls’
openers away, facing nearly 30 deliver-
ies before being trapped in front by Jack
Vater for three.
Vater would be one of three wickets to
fall before the end of play.
Davis could only watch as Miller (4)
and Elliot Stibbs (16) were unable to
capitalise on early starts, to leave Central
a further 104 runs for victory when play
Davis remained unbeaten on 26, while
David Coombs (4 not out) also kept his
The spoils were shared amongst Cen-
tral’s bowlers, with Jack Vater, Jack Con-
nell and Zack Hier all grabbing one scalp
A SECOND consecutive six-wicket haul from Ryan
Muirhead has given Lyndoch a big opportunity to
score an outright win over Mallala in the Barossa &
Light Cricket Association A1 reserves competition
Muirhead, coming off a 6/42 haul against Light Pass
last round, again produced the goods to take 6/46 and
help his side dismiss Mallala for just 95.
Matthew Robinson also bowled well, taking 3/46.
In reply, Lyndoch opener Stephen Scally knocked up 82
runs as his side smashed its way to 6/186 at stumps after
just 31 overs.
Light Pass needs a further 124 runs for victory over
Greenock after finishing day one at 1/16.
Batting first, Greenock lost three early wickets before a
defiant 55-run knock from Greg Loffler dragged the total
Despite Light Pass using eight bowlers, only three took
wickets – Brian Norman, James Braunack and Wade
Gripton snared three each.
Tanunda is in a strong position after posting 253 in its
match against Truro.
Opener Peter Mernagh hit an impressive 65, before
Lachlan Scott-Hoy steadied the middle order with a han-
dy 77 runs.
Zac Giles took 4/76 to be Truro’s best bowler.
Truro had a horror start to its run chase, losing opener
Sam Donovan for nought in the last over of the day to
finish 1/0 at stumps.
In A2, Gawler Central batted well to finish the day
9/215 against Tanunda.
Having lost the toss and being sent in, Central’s open-
ers Matt Perry (79) and Mitchell Horwood (42) set the
South Gawler is 0/15 in pursuit of the 123 runs set by
South’s Tony Impett did a stellar job cleaning up the
middle and lower order, taking 5/10 off just seven overs.
Anthony Zachopoulos hit an impressive half-century to
help Lyndoch post a solid 206 against Kapunda in A3.
Zachopoulos (53) and Clive Malsom (41) formed a vi-
tal 77-run partnership that provided the foundation of
South Gawler was unable to defend its total of 133 in
A4, with Kapunda surpassing the score with 17 overs to
spare for an easy victory.
Kapunda opening pair Damien Trotta (54) and Chris
Ryan (49) put the game beyond doubt, combining for a
102-run opening stand.
Light Pass decimated Truro in A5, dismissing it for just
79 before chasing the runs down in 18 overs without los-
ing a wicket.
Daniel Hausler was the pick of the Lighties’ bowlers,
taking 3/15 off six overs.

VIRGINIA held out a defiant Rose &
Crown in the Para Districts Cricket
Association on Saturday to record a
fighting 40-run win.
Having posted 239 on day one, Virgin-
ia’s bowlers needed early breakthroughs to
give themselves a chance of dismantling
Rose & Crown’s impressive top order.

lodge, and made 43 runs before being dis-
missed by John Natsias.

iel Jenner and Russell Figallo, Virginia’s
bowlers proceeded to cut through the bat-
ting line-up to eventually dismiss Rose &
Crown for 199.
Anthony Bascombe was the star with the
ball, finishing with 5/39.
Angle Vale romped home to record an
easy win over Central United.
After smashing an impressive 310 with

106 in the first innings before having it
3/103 in the second dig.
Justin Carman was the destroyer with
the ball, taking an impressive 7/34 in the
first innings and 2/13 in the second.
In the remaining matches, One Tree Hill
could muster just 155 runs in its failed pur-
suit of Craigmore’s 262, while Salisbury

Gardens, dismissing it 61 runs short of its

more for 137 and 130 to record an out-
