v OHS (H Thompson 31no, S Gee 30no, C Tink 20no, D Shepherd 4/12)
Round 5 v Cavaliers
KWS 6/34 drew with Cavaliers 7/259
Day 1: KWS lost an important toss with Main looking like the Mitchell Highway. Cavaliers duly carved KWS to declare at 7/259. KWS despite the unfriendly bowling conditions remained positive, and if it were not for some dropped catches the game could have been a different story. Charlie Greer (1/16) was the pick of the bowlers, creating chances despite bowling on the equivalent of concrete.
Cavaliers made the most of the 45 minutes they had at Kinross’s line-up, with KWS bleeding 6 wickets for 34 at stumps. The best KWS can hope for will be to salvage a draw from this position, or look to be positive and seek an outright win on Day 2.
Day 2: As it turned out, the weeks weather worked in KWS’ favour and put KWS Main in a water-logged state, rendering Day 2 abandoned. This resulted in a draw. By Mr B Ronald
Douglas Shield Round 2 v Moriah College
KWS 6/271 (W Luelf 61, P Litchfield 56no, T Madigan 46no, M Powell 36, L Buckely 33) defeated Moriah College 115 (S Ridley 4/9, E Taylor 2/16, G Cumming 2/24)
KWS were fortunate enough to travel to Coogee Oval and play hosts Moriah College in Round 2 of the Douglas Shield. KWS missed Round 1 after receiving a BYE, credit for winning last year’s competition. KWS could not have started better, winning the toss and making the most of the batting conditions, posting 6/271 off 50 overs. The innings saw many highlights, including a great opening stand between Max Powell (36) and Will Luelf (61), and a final partnership adding 95 in the last 10 overs between Phoebe Litchfield (56no) and debutant Tom Madigan (46no).
KWS defended their total comfortably, bowling Moriah out for 115, with Sam Ridley (4/9) being the pick.
KWS have since qualified for the semi-finals after Broughton Anglican College forfeited the quarter final. This will be played in the new year. By Mr B Ronald
Bonnor Cup Round 2 v St Pats Bathurst
Match abandoned due to weather.
Round 5 v Cavaliers
KWS 122 (L Buckley 27, N Rasmussen 27, B O’Brien 27) & 101 (L Buckley 25, F Doyle 22, W Prowse 21) lost outright to Cavaliers 8/333 (S Hope 3/53, T Madigan 2/44, G Cumming 2/84)
Day 1: KWS faced Cavaliers at Riawena Oval. KWS lost the toss and were bowling first up. KWS got off to a flyer in the first session with the score at 4/40. The second session was a very impressive batting display, with just the fall of one wicket for 160 runs. Cavaliers finished their innings declared for 333 runs. Sam Hope topped the wicket takers with 3 scalps. The day finished up with KWS 3/49, with Logan Buckley 17 n.o.. It’s going to a tough day of batting for KWS to salvage a draw next week.
Day 2: The KWS 2nd team continued their game against a competitive Cavaliers. Kinross started the day already 3 down, and wickets quickly continued to fall throughout the day due to a disciplined bowling attack from Cavs. Kinross were quickly bowled out after 20 overs, with the solid Brad O’Brien proving the most challenging batsmen to remove. Kinross were sent back into bat as Cavaliers pushed for the outright win. Kinross’ second innings started poor with 2 early wickets. A long partnership between Walter Prowse and Logan Buckley proved challenging to break, but an impressive runout broke the partnership. Kinross were eventually bowled out again for 101 runs, and Cavaliers earned the outright win. By Mr W Prowse (Coach/Player)
Round 6: KWS 9/157 lost to Spring Hill 4/163
Round 7: KWS 155 (N Keirle 33, S Taylor 31, W Smith 26) lost to Cavaliers 9/171 (J Rich 2/13, B Ronald 2/16, S Taylor 2/19, N Keirle 2/46)
KWS Super Kings
Round 5: KWS Super Kings 66 lost to Orange City 9/141 (T Goodlet 3/11)
The toss was won by new skipper Hugo Goodlet and sent City into bat. James Kidley and Hugo Skene opened the bowling with little runs being hit from them in their first spell. By the 10th over KWS managed to get their first wicket with a stumping being claimed, bowled by the skipper. Angus Blyde, Hugo Skene and James Kidley all claimed a wicket and a brilliant runout by Franco Marais and assisted by Cam Rasmussen. The skippers old man Tim came to assist the boys in the game on the day and did significantly with the ball, claiming a wicket on his first ball. Tim claimed a 3 wicket haul in his 4 overs. The batting did not go to as planned unfortunately but all were in high spirits on the day. Dan Blyde top scored with 17 and Lachie Ferguson being caught for 15. By Cam Rasmussen (Coach)
Round 6: KWS Super Kings 148 lost to KWS Blue 5/174
A fantastic day for cricket for a KWS grudge match. With a win to the KWS Blue in their last outing, the Super Kings knew they had to put in the hard yards. Skipper Hugo Goodlet won the and elected to bowl first.
It was a hard first session with the opening pair still in at drinks to the 25th over where the Super Kings new recruit Oscar Nuthall claimed his first wicket. From then on the Super Kings continued to mass wickets and continue the pressure. KWS Blue were in fact a dominant batting side hitting the bad balls to maximise their total. Angus Blyde took the keeping gloves off in exchange for the ball and claimed 2 wickets in his second over. James Kildey and Nelson Shepherd opened with the new ball with 4 maidens between them and 1 wicket for 17 runs each, an outstanding opening bowling partnership. KWS Blue finished the innings with 5-174 off the 35 overs.
In response the Super Kings started unfortunately with 2 quick wickets. For revenge, Nuthall the prestigious opening batsmen, turned back time and delivered a masterclass that Chris Lynn should have done on Sunday against India. Oscar was caught on 26 with half of his runs going to the boundary. A vital 50 run partnership was made by Shepherd and Ferguson with boundaries being hit every over to keep the Super Kings morale going. Shepherd was caught for 25 runs being bowled out by his brother. The skipper was in and was developing very well playing into the innings. With the pressure being on he nicked the ball and was caught behind for 28. Lachlan Ferguson was batting at 4 and lasted over 25 overs. He top scored with 30 runs despite a sore shoulder. Archie Haling is to be commended for T20 playstyle, hitting the ball straight down the ground for a 6 on the first ball he faced. No one has achieved that milestone in KWS cricket since Fletcher Rose swept the ball for 6 in 2nd grade on Riawena Oval. Archie continued the mass hitting until he was caught for 14 runs. The Super Kings were all out for 148 but should be proud of how far they got to be close to the score they were chasing. With some star power next week, the Super Kings will be ready to strike back. By Cam Rasmussen (Coach)
Round 5: KWS Blue 5/208 (L Hunter 104, H Gutterson 28, D Marjoram 21, S Gee 20) defeated CYMS 122 (E Smith 3/8, W Fuller 2/14, H Priest 2/19)
The Blues managed 5 from 5 against CYMS at Sharpe Oval, last Saturday, some Highlights included:
- Luke Hunter scored his first ever century and was a bit unlucky to be run out on 104. It was nice that his Dad could be part of this with Luke.
- Sam Gee took 4 screaming catches, Dylan Tucker and Dave Hunter took a good grab each too… it’s true “catches win matches”
- Ethan Smith took his 1st ever Centenary Cup wicket, then went on to grab a 3-fa and iced-out the game a couple of overs after drinks
- The key to our successes were the bowling and fielding. All bowlers did a great job building pressure on the batters and all taking wickets. The bowlers were well supported in the field with panther-like efforts from everyone. I think this is why the Blues have got away with so many, the bowling and fielding is sharp. It is particularly noteworthy when considering (excepting Dave and myself) the Blues are the youngest team in the Centenary cup. Mr D Marjoram (Parent/Player)
Round 6: see result above v KWS Super Kings
Round 5: KWS Scorches 7/74 (A Tancred 24no) defeated Cavaliers 73 (A Tancred 3/3, N Shepherd 3/5)
The Scorchers defeated Cavaliers in a hard fought contest on Saturday. Cavaliers batted first and were dismissed for 73. This was largely thanks to some good bowling from Nelson Shepherd who took 3 for 5 from 5 overs and Arnie Tancred who took 3 for 3 from 3 overs. However, they well supported by Jed O’Neill (1 for 1 from 1 over), Henry Forsyth (1 for 2 from three overs), Will Englund (1 for 10 from 3 overs) and Archie Haling (1 for 12 from 2 overs). Archie also took a sharp catch in slips to give Jed his wicket and finish off the Cavaliers innings.
In reply the Scorchers at one point reached the depths of 38 for 7 but victory was attained thanks to a controlled innings from opener Arnie Tancred who batted with a great deal of maturity and finished with 24 not out. He was well supported by Jed O’Neill who played some nice shots in his knock of 12 (half of his runs came from a powerful shot over midwicket) and Will Englund who made 16 not out.
Thanks to Jono Rasmussen and Tom Madigan for their help with scoring and to all parents and supporters for turning out to watch.
Round 6: KWS Scorches 7/96 (N Shepherd 23no) defeated KWS Heat 68 (N Shepherd (N Shepherd 3/3, A Tancred 2/8, J Rasmussen 2/16)
The Scorchers secured a win at the expense of the Heat on Saturday. Batting first the Scorchers managed 96 for 7 from their 28 overs. Several players made starts but the innings was built around Will Englund’s 12, Arnie Tancred’s 18 and Nelson Shepherd’s 23 not out. Arnie got the innings off to a solid start and was in the process of raising the scoring rate when he fell. Will and Nelson then combined for a vital 52 run partnership that enabled the Scorchers to post a competitive total.
In reply the Heat were dismissed for 68. At one stage they were 37 for 8 but fought back thanks to some doughty batting by Jock Stuart and Saxon Buckley and lapses in concentration from the Scorchers that threatened to undo the fine work that had gone before. Highlights with the ball came from Nelson Shepherd who seemed unplayable at times in taking 3 for 3 from 5.2 overs, Jono Rasmussen who took 2 for 16 from 5 overs and Arnie Tancred who took 2 for 8 from 3 overs. The bowling unit was well supported in the field. Ethan Smith took a very sharp catch at point to help Jono dismiss the dangerous Sam Gee for 14 and Oscar Nuthall took one of the best catches of the season so far to help Nelson to one of his three wickets.
While it was good to record a win it is hoped that the Scorchers realise that they came close to losing this game because of lack of focus in the field. Thanks to Mr Hannelly for umpiring and Mrs Charlton and Mr Englund for their help with scoring. By Mr B Kerridge
Round 5: KWS 94 lost to Orange City Warriors 127
Our round five clash with the Orange City Warriors at Max Stewart saw City opt to bat first and they started strongly, scoring 50 off the first six overs. However, wickets and some tight bowling restricted City to 79 after 14. We continued strongly, picking up wickets along the way with City ending up all out for 127 after 27.5 overs. Sam Gee, Saxon Buckley and Luke Hunter all picking up 2 wickets. Angus Staniforth and Dylan Tucker got one scalp each with Jock Stuart and Angus also each picking up a runout. We batted assertively but being 4-15 after 8 overs left us with a lot of ground to make up. Our 4th wicket partnership of 32 gave us some hope but once again wickets were the key and we ended up all out for 94. Angus (20) provided stability in the middle order. While Luke Hunter (18) and Sam Gee (15*) gave us some hope at the end with some hitting but it was too little too late. Ultimately it was the first quarter of each innings which cost us the game as it left us playing catch-up for the rest of the innings. By Luke Hunter (Year 8)
Round 6: see result above v KWS Scorches
Round 5: BYE
Round 6: KWS 9/79 (D Hunter 36no) lost to CYMS 9/231 (A Baldwinson 4/41, H Thompson 2/18)
It was a cold start to the game and captain Dudley Shepard won the toss and choose to field. The first ball of the game was bowled and went for four, so we knew this was going to be a hard game. We gave them our best bowlers but they had better batters with one player scoring 100 of 43 balls! Our wicket takers were Tom Storer with 1 wicket, Hugh Thompson with 2, Archie Baldwinson with 4, Will Pearce with 1 and Ollie Wong with 1. Our batting was not great but Dan Hunter, who was the opener, stayed in the whole innings and got 36. CYMS maintained pressure making it difficult to score, with KWS running out of overs to chase. By Archie Baldwinson (Year 7)
Round 5: KWS Sixers 62 (W Fuller 23no) lost to CYMS Gold 98 (W Fuller 2/3, C Hansen 2/14)
Round 6: BYE
KWS Fever (Girls)
Round 5: BYE
Round 6: KWS Fever 68 (S Mahlo 32) lost to CYMS Green 2/148
The Fever took on CYMS at Sally Kennett in freezing conditions. The temperature barely got above 8 degrees, making bowling or batting a popular past-time to keep warm. The girls played with typical spirit and fun. A beautiful knock from Sophie Mahlo was a highlight and Meg Murray stumping a batsman on the final ball of the CYMS innings was a cherry on top. The girls continue to improve in all areas and are a great example of KWS school spirit on the cricket field. By Mr B Ronald
U17 Colts T20 Challenge Cup
Round 1: KWS 7/122 ( N Rasmussen 25no, J Thompson 21) defeated Cavaliers 7/118 (G Cumming 2/16)
The KWS Colts started off their T20 campaign with a marvelous victory over Cavs. George Cumming continues his fine bowling with figures of 2-16 off his 4 overs. Tom Madigan shocked the audience in his second spell bowling off spin and claiming his first wicket with a short of a length ball caught behind. Tom claimed another wicket with a brilliant ball bowled.
The Colts realised at the end of the innings that retiring would be the best option to have more batters at their disposal in the later part of the innings. With cheap wickets being costly to the team, Nic Rasmussen and skipper Fletcher Doyle continued to rotate the strike very quickly and scoring vital runs. Nic then proceeded to retire, Fletcher continued to bat until he was bowled for 14. A quick cameo from James Thompson with a stunning 21 runs smashing the ball to all over the field. Jono Rasmussen came in and Nic Rasmussen came back out in which the two brothers finished the game with a 20 run partnership only in about 2 overs. Nic finished on 25 and Jono 8 not out getting the Colts home. By Cam Rasmussen (Coach)
Round 2: KWS 2/147 (F Doyle 34no, A Blyde 23no) lost to CYMS 7/150
Entertainment and heartbreaking are the two words to describe this T20 game. All the Colts were in high spirits learning from the game. All must be commended on their commitment until the last over. Tom Kiss retired early in the game on 18, smashing three straight drives to the boundary. Angus Blyde used the pitches bounce to his advantage cutting balls nonstop, retiring on 23. Nic Rasmussen again retired very quickly on 19. George Cumming was unfortunately caught behind after hitting nothing but boundaries for 16. Fletch Doyle decided to go berserk, hitting to the ball straight as well on the on side and off side. The skipper led from the front top scoring 34 retired. The highlight of the day was watching Franco Marais dismiss the ball to many different areas and playing the shot of the day with a back foot pull drive going to the boundary. Franco then continued Fletcher’s form and hit 7 runs in the last over.
The bowlers had a difficult time on the field, with CYMS taking advantage of the bad balls to maximise runs. Sundries were a disadvantage to the team in particular. KWS got off to a great start having CYMS on the backfoot at 4/33, George Cumming with a brilliant direct hit runout from the inner circle. Fletch Doyle inspired the team with the ball, 4 overs 1-20. James Thompson gave the Colts a gleam of light bowling his 4 overs 1-19. The end of the game all the boys had their heads up and in laughter after the game which is all that was wanted.
