A1 Grade - Round 10
Gilbert Valley 10/107 (C Schwartz 33 R McInerney 26  W Andrews 5/9 RR McCard 3/19 W Earle 2/17) def South Gawler 6/170 (RT Barker 40* CL Graser 36 D Judd Smith 35*  J Shahinger 4/37 I Condon 2/30)

Gilbert Valley hosted South Gawler, with the Lions winning the toss and batting first. Wickets were hard to come by initially, however a run of 6/29 thanks to the introduction of Shahinger (4/37) saw them 6/85 at one stage. They rallied back through an unbroken 85-run partnership between Riley Barker (40*) and Judd Smith (35) to end up 6/170. They brought the momentum with them into the Bulls' innings as they lost Bruce early and then took regular wickets as GIlbert Valley ended up on 107.

Freeling 7/191(cc) (BW Montgomery 64 A Poulton 36*  RC HANDTKE 2/29 NA Gum 2/49) def by Sandy Creek 5/193 (RC HANDTKE 53 R Robinson 36 JM Diener 34  BW Montgomery 2/30 A Poulton 2/37)

Freeling batted first against Sandy Creek, posting 7/191 in their full allotment of overs. The Captain Montgomery (64) top scored, opening with a half-century, while Poulton continued a strong season with both bat and ball, featuring with 36 not out and batting through to the end. The Sandy Creek response was strong, despite losing both openers to be 2/31, they stablisied through Handtke (53*), batting with Diener (34) and Robinson (36) to break the back of the toal, before Koch and Roberts saw them home in 36 overs.

Nuriootpa 9/168 (DS Doecke 51* M Norton 47  B Wilson 3/17 CR Curnow 3/27) def by Mallala 5/219(cc) (JN Birchmore 102 B Wilson 39 CR Curnow 26  M Milne 2/42)

Jake Birchmore's 102 was the backbone of Mallala's 5/219 as they batted first against Nuriootpa, as he contributed with three partnerships of fifty or more. It ended up a bridge too far for the Tigers who finished 9/168. The opening bowlers Wilson (3/17) and Curnow (3/27) took six wickets between them to have Nuriootpa 6/68 at one stage. A late half-century from Doecke (51) came off 45 balls to add some respect to the scorebook late.

Tanunda 5/190(cc) (SA Colquhoun 61 T Goers 51  BP Woodards 2/39) def by Angaston (9/191 D Schmidt 64* BP Woodards 34  SA Colquhoun 2/20 K Graetz 2/27)

Angaston headed down to Tanunda, taking the field first as the Magpies posted 5/190 from their 40 overs. The opening partnership of Goers (51) and Colquhoun (61) yielded two half-centuries and 110 runs, however Angaston fought back with the ball to keep things in check. In response, Schmidt (64) posted a half-century after coming in at 2/28 and batting through to the end, with Woodards (34) the other main contributor through the lower order in an 82-run partnership for the eighth wicket. That ended up being crucial in the Panthers' victory as they won by one wicket.

A1 One Day Final

Angaston 207 (J Henke 69 A Murphy 52 BS Burgess 27 G Bain 26  M Boschen 3/30 SA Colquhoun def by Tanunda 6/232(cc) (T Goers 106 SA Colquhoun 44 P Mernagh 30*  A Kurtz 2/57 B Burgess 2/59)

Once again, Tanunda's opening partnership of Goers (106) and Colquhoun (44) backed up from the previous day to put on 119 for the first wicket, as Tanunda posted 6/232 from 40 overs. Goers' century was made at better than a run a ball, including ten fours and five sixes. Burgess (2/59) and Kurtz (2/57 were multiple wicket takers for Angaston, who once again stemmed the flow of runs towards the back end of the first innings. In response, Angaston were quickly 2/17, and their top order were all back in the grandstand to then be 5/58. The fightback came from Murphy and Henke who both posted half-centuries. Their dismissals came at the hands of Tanunda's opening batsman who also contributed with the ball, and the wickets continued to fall as the Panthers were bowled out for 207 in the 39th over, handing Tanunda the A1 One Day Premiership by 25 runs.

A1 Reserve Grade - Round 10


Eudunda-Robertstown 92 (JR Mosey 31 MJ Robinson 4/10 N Goulding 2/8) v Lyndoch

Angaston 5/274(cc) (L Peel 143* LC Lade 57 L Dunn 3/51) def Willaston 7/234(cc) (DW McIver 82 Z Lowe 61 JD Quirk 41 L Doecke 2/34 B Sibley 2/39 H Ratcliff 2/44)

A high-scoring contest eventuated at Angaston stemmed from the home team being 3/41 at one stage, before Peel joined Lade (57) to combine for a 111-run fourth-wicket stand. The latter departed after a brisk half-century, however Peel continued to put on 76 runs for the fifth wicket, scoring the bulk of the runs and bringing up his second century in three seasons. The Panthers posted 5/274 from their 40 overs, which to Willaston's credit, was a challenge they opted to try and overhaul. A more even contribution saw half-centuries from McIver (82) and Lowe (61) and 41 from Quirk, however they were to fall 40 runs short, in a credible performance.

Greenock 8/158 (B Roennfeldt 32* G Stevens 31 H Smith 2/11 S Woods 2/23 L Mickan 2/32) def Kapunda 8/154(cc) (B Johnson 42 M Ryan 39 R Jenke 2/7 B Roennfeldt 2/24 B Verne 2/40)

The Schlungers had another close finish, which began with Kapunda hitting 8/154 from their 40 overs. Greenock's bowlers had some success, a short spell from Jenke proving useful along with Roennfeldt (2/24) and Verne (2/40) taking multiple wickets, while Johnson (42) top scored for the away side. In response, Greenock lost both openers on 37, and then a run of wickets further into their overs to be 6/106, however Roennfeldt batted through with the lower order to get them home, eight wickets down.

Light Pass 135 (S Schrapel 35 C Bilney 5/25 DJ Miller 3/25) def by Gawler Central 8/185(cc) (S Brading 37* M Taylor-Mcdonald 27 L Schutz 4/39 B Nitschke 2/33)

Light Pass sent Gawler Central in, who, with an even batting performance, hit 8/185 with no batsman passing 40.  Schulz (4/39) was a clear pick of the bowlers for the home side. In reply, LIght Pass started reasonably well, however the loss of captain McArthur at 2/76 saw a regular procession of wickets, as Bilney came on to take 5/25, with Miller's 3/25 also critical in giving Centrals the points.
