The Yorke Peninsula under 14
cricket side walked away with the
Bank SA Under 14 Country Cup
on Saturday after dominant per-
formances in all facets of the game.
This is the second YP junior
representative win of the season
with the under 12s winning their
event in November.
The u14s started with a tough,
well-fought victory against
Fleurieu South; after batting well,
YP defended its strong total to win
by 25 runs.
On day two, YP ripped through
Fleurieu North, bundling its bats-
men out for 52 and getting the
required runs comfortably.
Friday's games were cancelled
because of the 45-degree heat but it
didn't stop YP continuing its win-
ning streak on Saturday, bowling
its opponent Barrier out for 45
while making 231 runs for five
wickets and ensuring the champi-
"We had plenty of contributors,"
coach Bruce Woodcock said.
"The idea of this carnival is to
give everybody a chance and for
that reason I didn't bowl Joel
"We know his talent and he is
already in the state under 15s
"Blake (Gutsche) shared the
player of the carnival honours and
was considered unlucky not to
claim this award outright."
Gutsche was an outstanding
performer in the side, producing a
pair of half centuries and was the
second highest run scorer in the
competition with 121 runs at an
average of 40.33.
He top scored with 62 on day
one and finished the carnival with
a brilliant 56 against Barrier as well
as being the competition's equal
best wicket taker with seven scalps
at an average of 4.96 per wicket,
including a great spell of 4/9
against Fleurieu North.
Jordan Ward was dismissed only
once in the three games and had
an average of 60.
Murphy Short collected five
wickets over the three games at an
average of 7.20 per wicket.
Ed Johnson had a respectable
batting average of 22.33; he,
Gutsche and Ward will play in the
Country Red combination in the
Bank SA Under 14 Statewide Cup.
This cup is contested by two coun-
try representative teams and each
grade club, and is used to identify
players for the 2013-14 u15 state
