Moonta was defeated in the
Country Living Homes Cup
twenty20 semifinal at Moonta
It came up against a strong
Angaston side, which went into
bat first. Angaston punished the
Moonta bowlers and made 140,
with Moonta’s highlight being
an impressive catch in the out-
field by Shane Dalby.
Moonta headed into bat and
was in trouble early with 2/0.
Richard Crosby gave Moonta
a chance, hitting a solid 86, but
his side fell about 20 runs short.
Angaston had earlier defeated
Southern Eyre to advance to the
Moonta was first scheduled to
play Quorn but the side had to
forfeit as it was unaware it was
meant to be playing, so Moonta
automatically progressed to the
semi. Angaston will now play
the grand final at Adelaide Oval
Moonta Cricket Club spokes-
person Grant Keleher thanked
Country Living Homes for spon-
soring the competition, the other
teams for travelling to the penin-
sula, Moonta Football Club for
providing lunches, and the
umpires, who did an excellent job.
“Thanks also to the other teams
for their general sportsmanship, it
was brilliant,” he said.
The two local cricket associations will put
their best talent forward in the annual inter-
association match this Sunday.
The 55-over match will be played at
Arthurton oval from 10am.
The lower Yorke Peninsula squad, captained
by Adam Pitt, features: Blake Gutsche, Rohan
Williams (Sunbury); Troy Goldsworthy,
Murphy Short (Eastern District); Angus
Glazbrook, Chris Secker (Minlaton); Nathan
Allen (Warooka); James Moss, Adam Pitt,
Rhys Brundell (Stansbury); Alex Greenslade
(Maitland); Henry Johnson, Jack Barlow
(Honiton); and Clint Loechel (Yorketown).
Martin “JJ” Borlace will lead the YP squad,
which was yet to be finalised yesterday
Last year’s match was won by LYP but the YP
side will be hoping to go one better this year.
With a lot more centuries being made in the
YPCA competition this season, its batting line-
up should be stronger.
However, the LYP has no shortage of centu-
rions with Gutsche, Goldsworthy, Secker, Allen,
Moss and Loechel all making tons this season.
on this weekend
Yorke Peninsula was well
represented at the SACA Under
17 Shield in Adelaide recently.
Competing in the West
Curramulka’s Lachlan Pointon
and Murphy Short, plus Aidan
Turner, of Moonta, Leyhton
Hann, Wallaroo, Ben Davies,
Paskeville, and former local
Callum Agnew, Curramulka.
Previously, two country
teams played in the carnival,
but they were scrapped this
year and country players had to
fight for places in their
Adelaide zone area teams.
West Torrens came fifth out
of 12 teams, just missing finals
after a couple of narrow losses.
“It was probably a little dis-
appointing we didn’t go
through to finals,” coach Tom
“We lost to Adelaide by one
and tied with Glenelg, with
those teams going on to make
“It showed we were as good
as those teams, we just couldn’t
clinch it in the big moments.”
Woolford said there were
some solid performances
throughout the carnival.
“Lachy Pointon made a very
good 80 on the last day,” he
“Murphy Short made a fan-
tastic 91 on one of the days and
his bowling was really good —
and his leadership as well.
“Callum Agnew’s leg spin
was very consistent and reliable
and he was probably our best
bowler for the carnival.
“Leyhton Hann was sick for
the first couple of days but then
bowled really well.
“Aidan and Ben are two of
the younger lads who didn’t get
as much opportunity with the
bat because we had a lot of
depth, but they were both fan-
tastic team members and were
nearly our best fielders in a cou-
ple of the games which was
really good because they are still
under 15s and have a couple of
years to go in this carnival.”
