South Gawler won the Barossa and Light Cricket Association (BLCA) Twenty20 competition with a solid seven-wicket victory over a gallant Eudunda Robertstown on Sunday.
The Lions have now won the One Day and 20/20 competitions in the last year and must now represent the BLCA in the State Twenty20 competition.
Eudunda Robertstown won the toss and elected to bat on a pitch full of runs and started its innings with some character to post 2/38 after five overs.
However, Jordan “Dancing Man” Dare put the brakes on the scoring by taking four crucial wickets to rip the heart out of the gallant A1 reserves team.
Jordy’s effort with ball could have been better if not for bowling a no ball when trying get his first senior hat-trick.
After losing Clayton Cameron early in the run chase Chris Graser and Jake “The snake” Ahern started to score freely and whittle down the smallish total.
Grasser (49 runs) drove and cut to all parts of the ground while Ahern (26) found the gaps to keep the scoreboard moving along.
Eudunda Robertstown bowled and fielded exceptionally well but could not apply enough consistent pressure to force mistakes from the South batsmen.
Jordan Dare was the Player of the Match with his four wickets.
