over Lower North
LONG Plains claimed a vital
pre-Christmas victory over Lower
North at Ralli Park on Saturday, the
win the club’s ﬁrst over their close
rivals since joining the association
three seasons ago.
Both sides had key omissions in
the notorious wedding season but
the match still went down to the
wire, despite Lower North look-
ing on top.
The Buffaloes posted a healthy
8/192 from their 45 overs, Ryan
McPharlin top scoring with 57
before again getting himself out,
caught and bowled by Sam McAr-
dle.Sam Rowland provided ample
support with 46 and the tail wagged,
Bryce Chapman and Shaun Dykes
chipping in with 22 and 20 respec-
McArdle jagged 3/33, while
Brad Jones picked up 2/21 and
Michael Warnes claimed 2/27.
The Long Plains innings strug-
gled to gain momentum with wick-
ets at regular intervals, but when
Travis Beard (45 not out) and Josh
Butterﬁeld (25 not out) came to
the crease, the pair built a brilliant
partnership and made the required
runs with about two overs to spare.
Long Plains captain, Michael
Warnes, said it was great to end
up on the right side of the Lower
"We've been in positions to win
against them but they've always
got over the line, they're a quality
side," he said.
New faces in the Long Plains
side included batsman/keeper, Dy-
lan Gillies, Travis Beard and Josh
Butterﬁeld, recruited from Lower
North to Long Plains.
"I thought we were in trouble
when Jones holed out but I'd never
seen Josh or Travis bat, they exceed-
ed my expectations," Warnes said.
In other results, Clare Com-
bined made light work of Auburn/
Mintaro, winning by seven wickets,
with Ashley Barton and Daniel
Fogden getting the runs with ease.
Peter Meyer started the season
in ominous form for Brinkworth/
Koolunga, compiling 73 in his
team's 8/203 against Blyth/
Michael Heartwig (61) did his
best but the Goldcaps attack was too
strong, the Bulldogs skittled for 161.
VIRGINIA bowled Salisbury
West out for 201 on day one of
their two-day Grade One encounter.
Virginia B grade lost to Salisbury
West C in Grade 6, the Rams bowled
out for 119 chasing the mammoth
Dublin A grade bowled Eastern
Park out for 200, Ben Starr the
destroyer with ﬁve wickets.
The Dublin innings isn't off to
a great start though, they'll resume
on 3/44 next week.
The club's B grade was deci-
mated by Tea Tree Gully in Grade
Six, bowled out for 61, which was
chased down without loss.
The match between Para Teach-
ers and Two Wells in Grade Four
is delicately poised, Josh Osbourne
top scoring with 40 in the Roosters'
total of 172.
Para Teachers are 3/80 in re-
BAROSSA AND LIGHT
GILBERT Valley went down to
Freeling in the A1 grade one-day
encounter, Matt Norman top scor-
ing with 38 in a dismal total of 119.
Freeling made light work of the
chase, getting the runs four wickets
The club'sA3 team won a thriller
against Light Pass, Nick Bruce's
4/21 limiting Light Pass to just 121
but Andrew Bruce's 39 was vital in
his team getting the required runs
with just one wicket to spare.
Mallala got its season off to a
great start in the A1 Reserves, Brad
Wilson's 3/7 restricting Eudunda
Robertstown to 120.
Star all-rounder, Kelly Curnow,
made 56 in the three-wicket win.
THE Stanley Cricket
Association colts com-
petition will split into

SCA president, Scott
Smith, said the clubs
agreed it was the right
way to go.
"Everyone is keen for
it,” he conﬁrmed.
"It happened about
six or seven years ago,
just to make sure the kids
are competing on an even
"We looked at the age
groups of the sides, who
has the older kids and also
"The coaches all sup-
port the concept."
The two-day format
will remain, the two divi-
sions allowing the weaker
or younger sides to com-
pete against each other.
Round one of Divi-

Clare Blue v Clare Red,
Blyth v Lower North and
Sevenhill v Brinkworth.

A bunch of merry men and women rolled
up at Balaklava Golf Club on Saturday to
compete in a stableford round, with four
pairs also playing off for the Captain and Vice
Match winners were John Michael 6 and 5
over Merv Hameister, Dean Trickett in a thriller
on the 19th over Doug Taylor, John Boon
on a forfeit over Wim Delvendiep, and Scott
Michael 1 up over Phillip Nagle (aka Wayne.)
W for Winners will now head into the
captain's side of things with John M playing
Dean, and John B playing Scott, and the "Ls"
will play each other for the vice-captain's tro-
phy, being Merv vs Doug and Wim vs Wayne.
Now back to the general scores for the
day. A grade winner with 38 points was Ian
Michael, carrying on his good form of late,
with Wayne runner up on 32, and Mervyn
next on 31.
B grade winner was Doug Taylor on 35,
Scott Michael runner up on 32, and Geoff
Leo third on 29. Nice to see Geoff out for a
hit, driving a much smaller vehicle around
the course than he usually does.
C grade winner with the top score of the
day was Johnny Michael on 39, with Dean
Trickett second on 35 and Ian Jenkin hot
on his heels on 34. Good to see Ian hasn't
lost his touch.
Enough ladies were playing to warrant a
ladies comp, with Louise Michael scraping
through to win on 39, with Norma Taylor in
ﬁne form on 37 and Tania Matz third on 27.
Birdies were struck, not literally, by Scott
on number 6, Louise on 10 and Norma on
15. If she'd hit straight, Norma would have
had a hole in one, although she's already
had one on that hole before!
Nearest the pins were scored by Martyn
Bell on number 8, Norma on 15, Ian M second
shot on 6 and Doug third shot on 14, with
Nigel Nobody on 3 and 10.

The ladies enjoyed a stableford round last
week, played in perfect conditions.
Moya Hayes, the snake charmer, was
not too happy with her less than perfect
round, but it wasn't that bad in the scheme
of things, and she will be back next week!
Winner was Louise Michael with 40
points, scraping in from Cathy Redpath on
an impressive 39 points.
Cathy won A grade nearest the pin on
number 8, while Raelene Bastian, in her ﬁrst
18 hole round for the season after breaking
her wrist, won nearest the pin for C grade.
Maybe it was her new ball?
