Great Southern Herald - - Sport - Ben­jamin Quar­ter­maine

Ju­nior as­so­ci­a­tion cricket kicked off last week­end with a match be­tween Great South­ern and Pin­gelly at Quar­ter­maine Oval in Katan­ning.

Pin­gelly won the toss, elected to bat and got off to a good start, mak­ing 35 be­fore Shaun Shack­ley struck.

The runs came at a steady pace, with only two more wick­ets fall­ing Pin­gelly were 3-85 af­ter 20 overs at drinks.

With all 12 play­ers get­ting a bat, when the 10th wicket fell in the 34th over the bat­ting side were on 109.

Re­tired bats­man Blair Kemp came back out and moved the score on quickly with some big hit­ting and Pin­gelly fin­ished on 150 af­ter 40 overs.

Kemp fin­ished on 42 not out and Corey Page sec­ond top­scored with 18, while Ro­han Bignell took three wick­ets for Great South­ern with Toby Quar­ter­maine and Shack­ley tak­ing two each.

Af­ter a quick lunch break, the Great South­ern side took the field to bat.

Un­for­tu­nately, af­ter a mixup with the open­ing bats­men, and some ex­cel­lent catch­ing by the field­ing side, the wick­ets fell steadily and Great South­ern could only man­age to put on 45.

Bignell had a great day, top -scor­ing with 15 to go along with his three wick­ets.

Kemp took two wick­ets and two very good catches for the day.

The Great South­ern side’s next game is in Bod­ding­ton on Novem­ber 19.

Se­nior cricket re­sults saw Tam­bellup win a close game against Wan­der­ers. Wan­der­ers made 215 bat­ting first and Tam­bellup cashed that down with three overs to go.

James Bar­ritt top-scored for Wan­der­ers with 102 and Craig Clinch made 49 not out.

Kris Nor­ris made a fine 94 not out for Tam­bellup while Reece Groves chipped in with 35. Nathan Will­mot took 3-21 for Tam­bellup and Ty Pin­ney took 2-41 for Wan­der­ers.

Broome­hill took on Ken­de­nup at home and re­stricted them to 176 from their 45 overs.

Ken­de­nup got off to a good start mak­ing 61 be­fore los­ing a wicket but, due to some tight bowl­ing, were even­tu­ally all out for 114 in the 23rd over.

Clint Gil­bert had a fine day tak­ing 7-14 off eight overs.

It's not too late for in­ter­ested play­ers to join the T20 blast on Fri­day nights.

Bats­man Lu­cas Hull, of Pin­gelly.
