Barra batting


The milestones keep coming for the Trinity Old Scholars Cricket Club, this week Eythan Barraclough became the club’s leading run scorer, passing former skipper Alex Cotter.

• Barra made 52 as the A grade strolled to 2/92 after dismissing Reynella for 110, with Joshua Southwell taking three wickets.
• Notably Austin Smith made a welcome return to the bowling crease with two scalps.
• At the conclusion of play, Brad Cameron was unbeaten on 27.
• Barra’s 52 took him past Cotter’s 2817 runs but we expect to see Slim City back to add to that tally in the future.
• The B grade had a tough day at Old Scotch, dismissed for 164 with the opposition 2/124 in reply at the conclusion.
• Kyal Roberts was among the runs with 25, but there wasn’t much else to report as our under-strength bowling attack faltered.
• With runs in hand, there’s still hope for the lads – a solid start and a little luck will be needed.
• In the C grade, it was a shambles, with the lads all out for 81, chasing 210 on a postage-stamp-sized oval.
• Kyle Earl (from one over), Dylan Milhench and Scott Lee each took three wickets.
• In reply, we went from 0/38 to 81 all out, with last-man in Max Norman scoring an unbeaten 29 in thrashing fashion.
• Matt Knox made 30, but the less said about this game the better.
• Finally, the women’s team collected a second win, with Kensington forfeiting.

Coming up: November 18 – poker night.

Next weekend: A grade v Reynella (second day, Waldeck), B grade v Old Scotch (second day, away), C grade v Athelstone (Gawler River), Women v Northern Districts (Paddocks, no 1).
