Aussie win in Nimmitabel, under 14s grand final bound

Thomas King bowled exceptionally for Monaro.
Berridale’s James Cahill helped his side get off to a promising start with his
knock of 31 forming an 81 run opening stand.
Aussie win Nimmitabel Shield
Dalgety took on the Aussie Hotel at Nimmitabel for
the annual Nimmitabel Shield on show day.
The Aussie won the toss and elected to bat on a
ground that looked flat and dry with plenty of runs
to be had. The Aussie got off to a flying start with
Brad Tonks (40) and Mitchell Hynes (37) going at 10
Even after two wickets fell Anthony Khoury (105)
kept the momentum going. But when the third
wicket fell the run rate slowed with Luke Tredwell
(3/45 from 9) bowling a sharp spell, and the Aussie
went to drinks at 3/126.
A brilliant 172 run partnership between Khoury
and Damien Porter (68) set up the innings and the
Aussie finished with a formidable 5/318 from 45
The Dalgety innings started slowly until the early
wicket was taken which brought Tredwell (31) to the
crease who immediately looked to lift the run rate,
until he held out in the deep off the bowling of Stuart
Dalgety worked their way to 3/67 at drinks. After
drinks with Simon Freebody (68) and Iain Elliot (31)
at the crease, Dalgety looked to hit the boundaries
and get the climbing run rate under control.
Enter Porter (4/15 from six) who took the game
away from the Dalgety batsmen with a fine display
of seam bowling. Dalgety endied their innings 9/220,
falling short of the Aussie Hotel’s huge total.
A great day and a great game in Nimmitabel with
the sides heading back to Federal Hotel for a BBQ.
Rixon stars for Jindabyne
Jindabyne has begun life under new skipper
Lucas Rixon with a strong win against Peak View
Jerangle at Nijong Oval.
PVJ won the toss and batted first on a wicket
offering a bit for the bowlers. Tight opening spells
from Nick Hind (2/16) and Pete Callan (2/29) along
with some great catching from the Chads, Stevens
and Stephenson gave Jindabyne an ideal start.
Matthew Devereux (37) entered the fold, hitting
the ball hard and a strong total was on the cards for
Nathan Boate and Justin Locker (18) made
promising starts before tight bowling from Lucas
Rixon (3/18) and Chad Stevens (2/27) ended the
PVJ innings for 136 in the 41st over.
In reply Jindabyne sent out pinch hitter Nathan
Cramb (27) who started the innings in fine form
through his attacking approach.
Edward Thomas (3/32) knocked off the Jindabyne
top three in an aggressive opening spell, but from
there the free flowing Rixon (54 not out) and Chad
Stephenson (35 not out) saw Jindabyne reach the
total with 20 overs to spare.
Coffey’s cruise to victory
Coffey’s Hotel Cricket Club bounced back from
last week’s loss with a nine wicket victory over the
Berridale Whitetails. Coffey’s form batsman, Zach
Smith, notched up his fourth century in a row as the
homeside chased down Berridale’s target of 181.
Batting first Berridale got off to a great start
through openers Andy Bartell and James Cahill.
Bartell played a free flowing innings, crunching
covers drivers on his way to 55. Cahill made 31 and
the duo put on 81.
A wicket to Nathan Thompson removed Bartell
and broke the partnership. Quick wickets to Mark
Williams and Damien Hayden followed, placing
Berridale under pressure. Andrew O’Keefe played
a rearguard innings and helped Berridale reach
181. Williams finished with 3/27 off nine overs with
Andrew Nowland picking up two wickets.
With the bat, Coffey’s started in blistering style as
Smith took to the bowlers. His 105 not out saw the
total passed with 20 overs remaining.
Berridale’s young side applied themselves well
throughout the game with a number of juniors taking
to the field.
Under 14s grand final bound
The Monaro Under 14 side had a great T20 win
against Marist, booking themselves a spot in the T20
Playing on a superb ground at Marist College,
Monaro won the toss and elected to field.
An excellent bowling effort restricted Marist to
only 70 with wickets being shared between Thomas
King, Colby and Justin McDonald, Jake Quodling,
and Matt Rebus.
All bowlers were economical as Luke Fitzgerald,
Jason Kelly, Luca Henderson, Jesse Elujua, and
Remi Brademann did a great job keeping the runs to
The highlight of the innings was a screamer
of a catch to Preston Hillness in the slips. He
has ensured his spot at first slip for the next few
With a quick outfield, Monaro took to the crease
and from ball one made sure 70 would be
chased down in plenty of time.
Preston and Justin, both under 12s, took to their
older opposition, hitting them about the oval in an
opening stand of 42.
Preston finished with 24 and Justin 13. Matt hit
31, Kiah Joyce chimed in with 14, while Jake and
Colby finished on 13 at the end if the innings.
Monaro passed the total with overs to spare and
then batted on where we finished with 126.
Another fine effort from the Under 14s who should
be very proud of the way they conduct themselves
on the field each week.
