Round 4 v Centrals
KWS 201 (M Powell 90, S Ridley 40) won on first innings versus Centrals 136 (S Crisp 3/29, H Kermode 2/14, A Cumming 2/20) and 116 (H McIntyre 4/25, W Luelf 2/6, S Crisp 2/20)
Day 1: With quite a few ex-Kinross students in the Centrals side it made this game one the Kinross 1st Grade side particularly wanted to win. Day one saw Captain Sam Ridley lose the toss and Centrals putting us onto the field, with only starts from the Centrals batsman and none of them going on to make many runs. KWS fielded well, including a direct hit run out by Ed Taylor, restricting Centrals to 136 off 60, with good bowling done by Stuart Crisp (3/29 off 13) and Angus Cumming (2/20 off 10). Needing 137 for the win, Kinross lost 4 wickets for 69 with Max Powell (23no) and Phoebe Litchfield (12no) at the beginnings of an important partnership to keep Kinross well and truly in this game. By Harry Kermode (Year 10)
Day 2: After losing Litchfield and Ronald early, Powell and Ridley steadied the ship to steer KWS past Central’s first innings total, eventually gaining a lead of 65. KWS set about winning outright with McIntyre bowling well with 4 wickets, but KWS could not get the wickets quickly enough to have a chance to chase, eventually bowling Centrals out again but shaking hands after the last wicket fell. The 1st XI were very happy to get their first win of the season and will look to build on this as they play for the Douglas Shield v Moriah College, Bonnor Cup v St Pats and normal grade game against Cavaliers in the week ahead. By Sam Ridley (Captain and Year 11)
NSW All Schools Championships v Hills Sports High School
KWS 69 (W Luelf 26) lost to HSHS 8/174 (S Ridley 3/32, H May 2/36)
KWS played host to Hills Sports High on Melbourne Cup Day on KWS Main for Round 1 of the knockout tournament. Under gloomy skies KWS bowled and fielded well, with George Cumming impressing on debut (1/15 off 10), holding HSHS at 100 off 40 overs. Unfortunately HSHS teed off and collected another 74 runs in 10 overs to finish at 8/174. After a jovial lunch with the school watching on during Cup day festivities, KWS started and finished poorly, bowled out for 69. Will Luelf (26) showed some promise but HSHS bowled far too well to qualify for the next round. The KWS players learnt plenty against a quality opposition and can use the experience to improve their performances in the Douglas Shield schools competition. By Mr B Ronald
Round 4 v Centrals
KWS 126 & 8/86 (W Prowse 25, J Rasmussen 21) won on first innings versus Centrals 48 & 165 (G Cumming 6/9 & 3/46, N Jones 3/10, T Madigan 2/36)
Day 1: Kinross Wolaroi won the toss and elected to bowl against Centrals. Opening the bowling were Tom Madigan and Jono Rasmussen, both getting two very early wickets starting the break through with 2/0 by the second over. Sam Hope took a ripper of a catch at fine leg in mid-air leaving Kinross re-thinking that he can catch! George Cumming ultimately led the bowling attack with 6/9 off 8 overs, stumping Centrals all out for 48. Kinross came into bat and steadily gathered the runs with Noah Jones and Jono Rasmussen the last two batters of the day staying in and getting every run they could to surpass Centrals and get Kinross to 123. Kinross started their plans for an outright win having Centrals two for not many at stumps. By Tom Madigan (Year 9)
Day 2: Thompson and George Cumming started the break through that KWS needed to have a chance of winning outright, eventually Centrals were all out for 148. Kinross needed 88 runs for the outright victory. Brad O’Brien and Tom Madigan opening the batting, with Brad getting a quick 6 and Tom getting 16. Eventually, KWS had one wicket remaining and needing two runs off the last ball of the day to win outright. If they lost a wicket we would lose outright. As it turned out the last ball was a dot and KWS had to be satisfied with the first innings victory. By Tom Madigan (Year 9)
Round 4: KWS 60 (J Medway 34) lost to Centrals 149 (T Gill 4/33, W Byrnes 2/11, W Smith 2/27)

Round 4: KWS Blue 9/127 (L Hunter 40, C Tink 22) defeated Orange City 123 (S Buckley 2/6, H Priest 2/7, H Sharpe 2/19)
Round 3: KWS Scorches 8/80 (J Rasmussen 24no, C Mastrangeli 3/2, W Fuller 2/1, W Pearce 2/15) tied with KWS Royals 9/80 (H Thompson 22, H Gutterson 4/6)
On Saturday the KWS Cricket season was launched and the Scorchers and Royals took part in one of the most exciting games of junior cricket in recent memory. The match ended in a thrilling tie as the Royals were unable to score the three runs they needed for victory from the final over.
The Scorchers batted first and any thought they were going to compile a big score went out the window as they collapsed to a sorry 33 for 6 by drinks. Batsman after batsman fell to rash shots and the Royals held all the chances that came their way. Jono Rasmussen batting at number 8 resurrected the innings with a mature 24 not out and he got some good support from Nelson Shepherd (5) and Ollie Charlton (7) who held up their end and played well under pressure. The final score of 80 was disappointing but a lot more than seemed possible earlier and at least gave the Scorchers something to defend.
The Scorchers plan from this point was simple: bowl the Royals out for less. Nelson Shepherd made the early breakthrough that was needed in his first over but was unable to take any more wickets in the five overs he bowled after that. At the same time, he only conceded two runs from those five overs to finish with the excellent figures of 6 – 4 – 2 -1. The pressure Nelson, Jono Rasmussen (6 – 0 – 15 -1) and Arnie Tancred (5 – 1 – 17 -0) built up at the beginning of the Royals innings ended up telling in the end and had a great deal to do with the Scorchers escaping with a tie.
However it was Harry Gutterson who turned the game on its head in the 18th over. He broke the dangerous partnership between Dudley Shepherd and Hugh Thompson when he dismissed Dudley thanks to a fine catch by Gian Wynn for 15 and then, for good measure, he dismissed Hugh with his next delivery. After three overs his figures were a highly commendable 2 for 4 but more was to come.
The last over saw the Royals needing three to win. The Scorchers captain Arnie Tancred had a difficult choice to make: who was going to bowl. Nelson Shepherd and Jono Rasmussen were bowled out but in an inspired move he turned to that man, Gutterson. In the best traditions of ‘death bowling’ (does anyone remember Steve Waugh during the 87 World Cup? If not, look it up) Harry bowled full and straight and took two wickets while only conceding two runs. At the same time, there were two run outs as the Royals searched in vain for that winning run.
Mr Ronald wanted the season launch to be a memorable event and the Scorchers and Royals played their part as anyone who witnessed the game would attest. Thanks to all those who turned out to support the boys from both teams.
Finally, a big thankyou to Mr Hannelly for umpiring and Mrs Hunter and Mr Powell for scoring. This was most appreciated. By Mr B Kerridge
Round 4: KWS Scorches 7/116 (N Shepherd 37) defeated CYMS 88 (N Shepherd 4/16, H Forsyth 2/14, A Tancred 2/16)
The Scorchers recorded another win after a hard fought game against CYMS on Saturday. Batting first the Scorchers put together 116 for 8 in their 28 overs. The highlights this week came from Nelson Shepherd who opened the innings and made a controlled 37. Jono Rasmussen chimed in with 18 and Harry Gutterson and Arnie Tancred made important contributions at the end.
The Scorchers then dismissed CYMS for 88 but the scores do not reflect how close things were. The Scorchers were able to make early inroads thanks to the leg spin of Nelson Shepherd who, once again, bowled quite splendidly to finish with 4 for 16 from 6 overs. He was well supported by Arnie Tancred who took 2 for 16. But Henry Forsyth deserves special mention for his role in two key moments: the first was when he took a truly remarkable catch at point to give Ethan Smith a wicket and the second was when he dismissed the dangerous Nick Murphy helped by a fine catch from Jono Rasmussen. This wicket turned the game as CYMS looked like they might have been able to stage a come from behind win with Murphy at the crease and plenty of overs to be bowled.
Thanks to everyone who came to support the Scorchers on the day and to Tom Madigan who volunteered to help out with scoring. Well done. By Mr B Kerridge
Round 3: KWS Heat 4/153 (L Hunter 47, S Gee 40no) defeated Cavaliers 36 (R Hall 6/8)
After winning the toss, Sam Gee chose to bat as the previous game that these two teams had met it apparently was an easy first innings win to KWS with only a few runs to chase.
Batting first we lost our first wicket due to a run out which was a shame as we have done some work on 'calling our singles' which confirms that we still have more work to do in that regard. Luke Hunter (47) and skipper Sam Gee (40no) enjoyed the opportunity to hit 8 boundaries in total between them and a big six to Luke which kicked the score along nicely to our final total of 4-153.
Our fieldsmen were keen and were quicker on the change of overs in comparison to previous games. After the first wicket fell, Riley Hall impressed by snaring 2 wickets in his first over and at one stage was in a hat trick after an incredible diving catch to Angus Staniforth in the 'covers'. CAVS did not appear to be a strong batting team and after 13 overs were bowled out for 39. Riley finished with the impressive figures of 6-7 from 4 overs. Well done Riley!!
Thank you to those who supported us on Saturdays so far this season:- Parents, Family and Friends. The boys also appreciated the opportunity to play a game after the turf pitch on Sharpe was not suitable for play. We were very lucky to get our game in!
Looking forward to training and working hard to improve our individual skills.
By Mr P Koen (Coach 15 Heat)
Round 4: BYE
Round 3: See above v KWS Scorches.
Alternative report by Tom Patton (Year 7): It was great game at the main oval of Kinross Wolaroi. The Royals were taking on the Scorchers . It was a slow out field as the night before it bucketed down rain making everyone wanting to bat first. Even though the Royals lost the toss they were all fired up and ready to give it their all.
The Scorchers wickets fell regularly because the Royals energetic fielding and accurate bowling put a lot of pressure on the Scorchers batsman. The highlight of the innings was Dan Hunter’s diving catch. The Scorchers finished with a total score of 80 runs.
With a chase of 80 runs it was going to be hard with the experience of the Scorchers team. The Scorchers kept the run rate down. The Royals picked the gaps and got lots of singles. The partnership was incredible between Hugh Thompson and Dudley Shepherd, giving them 60 runs and needing 20 runs in the last four overs. The last over saw the Scorchers get four wickets on the last four balls making it a tie.
Round 4: KWS Royals 8/94 (D Shepherd 20) defeated Orange City Gladiators 9/76 (C Tink 2/9, T Storer 2/17)
Round 3: KWS Sixers defeated KWS Fever
Round 4: KWS Sixers 8/52 lost to CYMS 1/53
KWS Fever (Girls)
Round 3: See above v KWS Strikers
Round 4: KWS Fever 7/62 lost to Orange City Warriors 3/137
A warm Saturday morning and Orange City won the toss and elected to bat first. KWS Fever started the bowling with more runs from the first few overs than expected but that was not the fact until Hannah Arundell charging in claimed the first wicket of the day. Hannah continued her bowling, with a total of only 12 runs from her 4 overs. Jo Mclachlan and Meg Muarray followed in Hannah’s footsteps putting in a wicket each to their names in spectacular fashion. Brilliant displays of fielding from Julia Williams and Taya Rutherford, letting no balls go past each other. Orange City finished their innings at 3/137 after 28 overs.
Meg and Julia started the innings but unfortunately could not get the start they wanted after being bowled by some brilliant yorkers, with Meg out for 5 and Julia 1. Sophie Mahlo stepped up and the batted throughout most of the innings until the last wicket, with a top score of 13 runs. The KWS Fever were all out for 62 but once again like the past weeks, the girls continue to put on an entertaining game for the spectators to watch. Their effort on and off the field is tremendous and all must be commended for it.
