PORT LINCOLN CRICKET
Tasman 6/275 def Lincoln South 96
Lincoln South and Tasman squared off after the break in a must-win game for Souths to hold on to their finals hopes.
The toss again went against Souths’ skipper and they were sent out to field.
Tasman had loaded up their side with a couple of handy EP reps to make it a tough ask for Souths.
The day started well with Drewitt removing Bunder in his first over to have Tasmans 1/0.
This brought Dyer to the crease who has tended to have a field day against Souths.
Wilks at the other end pushed the ball around until Moriarty caught the gloves from a well directed bouncer to have him walking back for 18.
From this point on though there was not any joy for Souths.
Dyer picked off any loose balls and although Stutley took a bit to get going finally found his feet and the middle of the bat after the drinks break.
Dyer brought up 100 and Stutley brought up 50 before N. Sincock asked for a ring field and got sent to the boundary a few times, before Stutley missed a straight one.
In the chase for more runs at the back end of the innings wickets began to fall.
Dyer holed out for a well compiled 136 and Clarke and Larwood lost their stumps in the final overs.
The damage was done and Tasman finished 6/275.
Dyer by far the best with 136 well supported by Stutley with 58.
Souths were always going to be under the pump chasing this total.
A bright start with a 50-run opening partnership looked promising but the introduction of Larwood into the attack had Reidy and Kumar back in the sheds.
From there things were not pretty as Souths’ batting lineup followed each other one by one back to the sheds.
Reidy top scored with 36 and N. Sincock was the only other batsman to pass double figures with 19.
In the end the total was too big and Souths were all out for 96.
Tasman produced an all round team effort with wickets shared between Frick, Clarke, Milligan and Larwood.
Wayback 179 def Southern Eyre South 78
A 100-run win was on the cards on Saturday but not to the team most would have predicted.
The undefeated SES side took on the bottom of the ladder Wayback and got handed one of their biggest defeats in years.
Wayback completely outplayed the Southerners in all aspects of the game.
The day started well for Southern Eyre winning the toss and electing to bowl against a young but determined Wayback outfit.
Two quick wickets to young gun Charlton seemed to justify the decision to bowl, however Southern Eyre failed to capitalise in the field dropping Campbell early on.
He went on to punish some wayward bowling before being undone by Smith, caught and bowled for 39.
Parsons at the other end continued the scoring and found a good partner in Newman.
The two put on 26 before Parsons was well caught by Charlton at square leg.
Newman was also the recipient of a dropped catch and he made Southern Eyre pay with a well compiled 40 before being stumped off the bowling of Green.
Some late hitting by Secker enabled Wayback to reach 179 before being bowled out in the 47th over.
In reply the Southern Eyre innings never got going.
Stockham claimed the big scalp of Watson for two and Wayback were up and about.
Young gun Clark was pouncing on everything in the field and caused a mix up resulting in Smith being run out well short of his crease.
Bowling tight lines and restricting runs the pressure mounted on Southern Eyre and the wickets continued to fall at regular intervals.
The Southern Eyre innings featured four ducks and two run-outs and lasted just 28 overs before being all out for 78.
Parsons and Campbell were the pick of the bowlers with three wickets apiece.
Charlton 144 def Tod River 77
Tod River took on Charlton at Centenary at the weekend.
Charlton won the toss and elected to bat first on a well prepared pitch.
Wright and Sarunic opened the batting, Tod River’s Keeley had Wright caught behind early without troubling the scorers.
Cottrell came and went just as quick.
Sarunic managed a shaky 21.
Charlton were 3/57 at the break on a slow Centenary outfield.
The partnership of Yancic and Murphy showed their experience, compiling 42 and 22 respectively.
A standout batting display then came from Michael Simpson.
He came into bat at nine and made an impressive 24 runs including a big six towards the CWA building.
Charlton were all out for 144 in the 48th over.
Best with the ball from Tod River were Keeley 3/18 off nine overs, Dalziel 3/21 off seven overs and W. McShane 3/17 off five overs.
Not an ideal start to Tod River’s innings with Arthur being removed in the first over.
Calderwood and Dalziel did not put up resistance either.
Earle batted for majority of the innings and made a respectful 28.
Credit to the Charlton bowling attack, they did not waste time dismissing the rest of the Tod River batting line up.
Tod River were all out in the 29th over.
Best with the ball for Charlton was Shanley with 2/6 off five and Yancic with 3/4 off three overs.
A reminder to all cricket supporters to barrack and not abuse players.
Tasman 3/107 def Lincoln South 6/106

Openers P. Newman and D. Briggs started slowly with two off the first over from left-armed pace bowler L. Webb.

The 10th over marked half way through the innings, Souths had 1/45.
Good work from both sides gave Souths a finishing score of 6/106, K. Bilney top scored with 33 and equal second was P. Newman and R. Fordham on 27.
Bowling standouts were L. Webb 2/8 off four and B. Fauser 2/14 off four.
Change of innings and opening the bowling for Souths was P. Newman.

Wayback 5/197 def Southern Eyre South 5/122
On a breezy but warm day at Poole Oval Wayback hosted Southern Eyre South.
Wayback won the toss and elected to bat with Paul Newman and Bruce Lloyd at the crease.
Wayback went for it from the start, smashing a fair few fours before Trevor Filmer struck with the first wicket bowling Newman for 15.
The score was 49.
Bruce Lloyd continued to make runs, smashing eight fours and two sixes with his nephew Beau Lloyd on his way to 64 but was bowled by Darryl Marshall.
Beau was next to go, also bowled by Marshall for 15.
The runs kept coming for Wayback with the experienced combination of Peter Kleinig and Troy Sargeant putting on another 61 before Kleinig was caught by Dylan Doudle for a well made 39 off the bowling of Kerrin Siebert.
Akash Thakural was run out for a duck by Gil Casanova and Aaron Siebert.
Sergeant was not out on 39 and Cameron Sproule not out on 0.
Wayback set a pretty nice score of 197.
Southern Eyre South had a fair hill to climb.

Troy Dunn did not last long, out in the seventh for three.
Kerrin Siebert followed shortly after for a duck off Avtar Singh.
