Australian Shooting Stars
Lauren Ebsary and the Shooting Stars
started their four-game series against New
Zealand at Bankstown with a six-wicket win
After the NZ Emerging Stars were
bundled out for 90, Ebsary made a quick 14
before being run out. She hit two
boundaries and a big six over the square leg
fence in her better-than-a-run-a-ball stay.
In the second game in Sydney on Friday,
the match fell 10 balls short of a result with
NZ faced 37 overs in the shortened
fixture and made a competitive 161. Ebsary
bowled four wicket-less overs that cost 18
runs, affected a run out and took a catch.
The Australian second XI was 3/84 in
reply before inclement weather finished the
contest. SA district cricket
After a competitive week one total,
Daniel Harris and the Woodville Cricket Club
were thwarted by the East Torrens lower
order, getting the winning runs seven
wickets down in a game that had many
peaks and troughs.
Harris bowled 16 frugal overs, costing
just 19 runs and including eight maidens,
but went wicket-less.
The country round which started the
twenty20 SACA grade competition was also
a frustrating one for Harris.
Playing at the Ports club in Pirie,
Woodville's opponent Prospect made 4/169
from its allotment; opener Harris sent down
four overs that cost 35 runs.
He started like a house on fire with the
bat, hitting two boundaries in his first three
balls faced, before being dismissed from
the fourth delivery of the innings for 10
runs. Woodville lost by 38 runs.
SA women's cricket
In a recent women's B grade nine-a-side
twenty20 fixture, West Torrens gave Sturt a
West Torrens made 3/115 and then
bowled Sturt out for 12 in 10 overs.
Port Broughton's Tait Mackrill, who has
been selected as captain of the SA U13
schoolgirls' team, made an unbeaten 24,
opened and batted through the innings, and
snaffled a catch in the field.
Curramulka's Taitlyn Tilbrook also
featured with the ball, collecting 3/3 from
her three overs.
Tea Tree Gully batted first last week,
amassing 6/277 from its 70 overs against
West Torrens. Paskeville-Boors Plains
recruit Alby Price snared 2/52 from his
seven overs of leg spin.
West Torrens was under pressure early
in the run chase at 4/59 but some lower
order resistance helped it reach a
respectable 207 all out. Price contributed
20 with the willow, batting in the
all-rounders' number seven position. Tea
Tree Gully defeated West Torrens by 70
In its SACA U14 Red round three clash
against East Torrens, Woodville, defending
256, started well with three early wickets.
East Torrens fell short of Woodville's
target, bowled out for 234 in the 59th over.
Paskeville's Jordan Ward was good in the
field for Woodville.
Chasing Tea Tree Gully's 135, West
Torrens' first drop batsman, Wallaroo's
Bailey Hann, spent a few overs getting set
but was caught for six. The remaining West
Torrens batsmen dispatched the TTG
bowlers to all parts, West Torrens finishing
with 5/240 and winning handsomely.
Junior (third-year) player, Kadina's Bree
Farley scored a career-high 21 points in the
Fresno State Bulldogs' defeat of Cal
Maritime, 82-43, in its home opener on
Farley shot six of nine from the field,
hitting four three-point bombs and adding
six rebounds. She was also credited with an
assist and a pair of steals in a tremendous
all round game.
"She's a queen on the chessboard,"
Fresno head coach Raegan Pebley said of
"Bree played the four (position), the
three, she played the point, and it was good
for us to have her out there to get some
In the Australian Women's National
Basketball League, both teams with YP
content, Logan and Adelaide, lost on Friday
Bulleen broke away from Emma Langford
and her Logan teammates in the last
quarter to win 85-76. Although she picked
up five fouls in 26 minutes of court-time,
Langford had some impact on the game,
finishing with 10 points, five rebounds, an
assist, a steal and a pair of blocks.
Adelaide lost to the Dandenong Rangers
88-79, falling to third position.

Yorke Peninsula Football League clubs
voted to keep the current Approved Play-
er Points System for outside players at last
Tuesday's annual general meeting.
The league had suggested reducing
each club's points from 15 to 13, and keep-
ing the remaining two per club for distri-
bution throughout the season if necessary.
Under the system, players who arrive
straight from the Australian Football
League are worth five points, four if they
come from the South Australian National
Football League and so on.
Every year a player remains with a club
they are worth one less point.
Six clubs voted to keep the full 15 points
each, against three who voted for a
"The board of directors made it 13
(points per club) to keep points back if
anyone comes into an area for a legitimate
work reason, so we could then issue points
to their preferred club if they had spent
their full 13," YPFL president Brad Hay-
"Since that was not adopted, if a club
has spent all its points and a new person
comes in, he can't play unless it's B grade.
"Every other league holds points back
for that reason, and to support struggling
clubs." Insurance increase
Also at the AGM, clubs were informed

Mr Haylock said this is because the
league will be required to take up a higher
level of cover.
"Last year, two footballers were badly
injured (in other leagues), one becoming a
quadriplegic and the other a paraplegic,
and under the old cover the quadriplegic
received $100,000, which is not enough,"
