Jindabyne Win 2012 Premiership

Cooma Monaro Express 27/3/12

Jindabyne Cricket Club claimed their first A grade premiership title on the weekend romping to a 133 run win against Coffey’s Cricket Club. The win caps off a stellar season for Jindabyne who took out the minor premiership of the Monaro District Cricket Association competition.

Jindabyne went into the grand final against Coffey’s at Rotary Oval on Saturday as favourites and did not disappoint. Coffey’s won the toss and sent Jindabyne in to bat first on a good wicket and set a very competitive total of 200 runs. Luke Hayes and Steggles Fitzgerald started slowly for Jindy in the face of some tight bowling from Sommerville who stuck to a tight line and extracted impressive movement off the deck and through the air.

Coffey’s bowler Hayden was the first to break through removing Fitzgerald for eight in the fifth over. Hayes was the next to go off the bowling of Sommerville for seven followed by Shortland who was out on a duck leaving Jindy struggling at three for 37. Dunn fell soon after on 22 having played a lone hand in the top order. Mick Bottom then set about resurrecting a precariously placed Jindy innings.

Joined at the crease by Lowe (8), the pair put on 37 for the fifth wicket before Lowe fell in the 22nd over. Oliver then joined Bottom and with some big hitting put on 55 runs in eight overs before being bowled for 40.

Bottom continued to bat well and with excellent support from Williamson who put on 29 took the score to 166 before being caught for an excellent innings of 59. Williamson continued to bat well and with support from O’Brien and Hind saw the overs out, taking the total to 200.

Coffey’s started slowly with Hind causing both openers a lot of trouble but it was Oliver who made the initial breakthrough removing Moon to a sharp catch by Lowe. Hind then removed Fitzgerald next over for a duck.

Coffey’s were two for 11 after eight overs. Sommerville joined Nicholls at the crease and the two hung in for five overs before Akkersdyk was brought into the attack. With some excellent swing bowling he tore through the batting taking five for 26 off eight overs in his best spell of the season. Waller took three for 19 cleaning up the tail to have Coffey’s all out for 67.

Knights take six a side crown

Cooma Monaro Express 31/1/12

In a terrific day of cricket action on Sunday, the Merimbula Knights team walked away with the 2012 MDCA six-a-side trophy turning the tables on last year’s champions Berridale. The Merimbula Knights team captained by Jeremy Fernando, went through to the finals just on percentage as the highest placed losing team, however they played terrific cricket in the two finals to secure their well deserved victory. With 13 teams competing and a healthy crowd of family and friends watching on the cricket action was fast and furious as fours and sixes were hit and wickets fell at a cracking pace throughout the day.

Highlights of the day included some strong junior performances from the Merimbula Knights and, the Berridale Post Young Guns including taking out the long distance throwing and junior sprint competitions. The day saw local Daniel Jacobs regain his title in the seniors MDCA sprint after the first final finished in a three way dead heat.

Earlier in the day the highly fancied Jindabyne were upset by Michael Lehrman’s Custard Arms team and Wolfies Wobblers upset the CSG team led by Zac Smith. Sam Williams was terrific with bat and ball for the Lime Milkshakes team whilst the Expats team led by Brendon Geeves were unlucky to just miss out on a place in the finals on percentage run rate differential
Some big hitting, tight bowling and good sportsmanship were the order of the day as each team played their round robin games before fiercly contesting the finals. The awards for the day’s best batsman went to Michael Lehman, whilst best bowling also went to Sam Williams. Ben Hearn was awarded the player of the tournament collecting plenty of runs and a number of wickets.

The cricket action returns this weekend with normal fixtures across the Monaro as well as the quarter finals of the MDCA Super 8’s cricket competition at Snowy Oval this Tuesday and Thursday evening. The MDCA would like to thank all the teams for taking part and acknowledge its supporting partners, BDM, Saphire Coast Physiotherapy, Cooma Monaro Shire Council, Capital Dial a Pizza, Commonwealth Bank, Cooma Hotel, Coffeys Hotel, Alpine Hotel, Australian Hotel, Berridale Post Office and Berridale Real Estate.
