Angaston to finish minor premiers

Weather once again played havoc with the Barossa and Light Cricket Association, with two games being washed out on day two.

There was no play at Saddleworth with Gilbert Valley holding the upper hand against Angaston, and South Gawler already having first innings points against Mallala did not get out on the park due to the wet conditions.

With one round to go before the finals, it now looks like the final four on the premiership ladder is set.


Sandy Creek booked its finals spot with a comfortable 102-run victory over a disappointing Freeling.

Several Freeling batsmen got starts but failed to go on with the job in a poor display of batting.

With finals looming, the Freeling lads will have to find some form with the bat or it will be a quick exit from the premiership race.


Kapunda managed to sneak over the line against Gawler Central in a very tight contest.

Chasing the Tigers modest total of 170 runs, Kapunda kept losing wickets as they chased down the total but finally got there with two wickets to spare.

Sambo Ryan top scored with a dashing 38 while lucky Luke King took the bowling honours for the Tigers with 4/38.

A1 Reserves

In the A1 reserves, Tanunda have given themselves a real chance of finishing top with an outright win over Lyndoch.

It all comes down to the winner of the clash between Tanunda and Nuriootpa this week which will determine who will finish top and get the promotion to the A1 division.

There is less than three points in it as both teams have the same amount of wins and losses.


Nuriootpa gave Light Pass a real spanking, dismissing them for a paltry 63.

As good as Nuri’s bowling was, the Light Pass batting was deplorable with poor shot selection assisting with the loss of their wickets.

Wild Will Linke and little Mitchell Norton took three wickets each, while old man Danny Doecke re-injured his hamstring and will be in doubt for the clash against Tanunda this Saturday.


In the clash of the Loffler Clan, Greenock’s Brett Loffler top scored with a classy 73 runs while wild Bill Loffler took six wickets for Eudunda Robertstown.

A fighting nine-wicket partnership of 40 runs by Ben Roennfeldt and Liam Birchard was enough to see Greenock pull off a major upset.

With this loss, Eudunda Robertstown will struggle to finish top and gain promotion to the A1 division.

To say that the wheels have fallen off for the Saints is bit extreme, but they are extremely wobbly at present.


This Saturday in A1, the final round has South Gawler taking on Gawler Central, Angaston host Mallala, Freeling will do battle with Gilbert Valley and Kapunda are at home against Sandy Creek.

See ya next week.
