Horgan Shield


Port Lincoln v Far West

Port Lincoln hosted Far West at Ravendale on Saturday and losing the toss, it was the visitors that had the task of posting a score on the netball side of the complex.

With some accurate bowling and exceptional fielding, the Port Lincoln side managed to bowl out Far West for 74 runs in the 28th over.

Max Coote led the attack and claimed one for 18 with Jaiden Jude also taking one wicket for 12 runs.

However it was a great spell of bowling from leg spinner Brett Woolford as he took career best figures of five for 12 as he tore through the Far West lineup.

Cody Siebert chipped in with two wickets and one wicket to Torren Quinn with the team applying plenty of pressure in the field. 

The run chase did not start well as Hamish Newman was dismissed first ball, however Brock Davis and Aaron Siebert settled the innings and took the score to 39 until a mix up saw Brock run out for five.

Aaron and Jackson Smith then set about reeling in the total with a mature display of batting to see the home side win by eight wickets.

Siebert finished a fine knock with 31 not out and Smith a good innings of 20 not out.


Port Lincoln v Kimba

The boys travelled to Kimba on Sunday and winning the toss, skipper Hamish Newman had no hesitation in batting first.

His decision was justified as the Port Lincoln side amassed a huge total of seven for 326.

Newman led the innings with his maiden century as he dispatched the Kimba attack to all parts of the ground.

Ably supported by Brock Davis and Aaron Siebert, Newman was eventually caught and bowled by Jack Lienert for a brilliant innings of 138 in the 32nd over.

Siebert pushed on after Newman fell and unfortunately was dismissed one run short of his 50 after a patient and clever innings.

Further partnerships helped push the score along as the Port Lincoln batsmen played the conditions well with Jackson Smith making 37 and Wilson McShane 24 the other main contributors. 

After battling away in warm conditions the Kimba players were up against it from the outset.

Some tight bowling from Max Coote and Jaiden Jude combined with another exceptional display of fielding from all the Port Lincoln side saw early wickets fall and the run rate dry up.

Two early run outs from Max Coote and Brock Davis, both finished off by some fine work from wicket keeper Camden Madden put the home side on the back foot.

Then after a good spell without luck from Bohdi Fauser, it was Brett Woolford, who after copping a bit of treatment down the ground, claimed the vital wicket of Jack Chinnery for 53.

Brock Davis was then introduced into the attack and set about ripping apart the middle order as he took 4 for 14 from his 5 overs to seal the victory for the visitors.

With two more run outs to Bohdi Fauser and Torren Quinn completing the day, it was the Port Lincoln side victorious by 201 runs.
