Brad Cameron was the star of the show in this weekend’s round of TOS cricket, completing the rare feat of collecting six wickets and a century in the one day.
Playing as a ‘slash’ Cammo came into the B grade with the opposition needing just 50 runs to collect first innings points.
The boys came in with much better bowling intent with Harrison Varley, using his left-armers rather than wearing the keeping gloves, and wily Matt Knox bowling a good first spell.
Cameron Fletcher took the opening wicket, before old mate Cammo came on and took 6fa on the way to Goodwood making 9/270.
On last week’s batting performance, Goodwood might have considered themselves a chance of securing an outright, but
Cammo had different ideas – pounding the opposition into submission, along with a BMW.
The last over he faced going 4644.6, hitting the likes of which hadn’t been seen since, well, three Saturdays ago. 😉 😉 😉
He made an unbeaten 133 as we finished 6/177 at stumps.
His century was his fifth for the club, the 11th highest score in club history and the third highest for our B grade.
Mustangs turned into light horses
The A grade mostly made light work of Golden Grove, recording a 207-run first innings victory over last year’s grand final foe.
At 2/11 the Grove’s day started badly and only continued to get worse as they collapsed to 7/70.
Former TOSCC coach Ron Dinan can clearly see into the future as he had earlier (on Facebook) predicted the wicket-taker and mode of dismissal of one of the Brumbies’ key batsmen as Jarryd Furnell strolled to 3/18 off 10 overs.
Only a late recovery that saw the final three wickets put on 97 runs saved the Grove some blushes.
We then had a hit, giving some lower order batsmen a chance at the top and finished off 6/88.
Brad Schaper made 33, adding to his two wickets, and Furnell 21. Jace O’Hara added a third golden duck for the season.
The C grade destroyed Walkerville’s bowling attack to secure a win.
After knocking the home side over for 143 on a field the size of a bee’s wingspan, the boys collected the score in just 11.4 overs.
The target could’ve been difficult, particularly after losing one opener (who won’t be named out of respect for his previous feats with the club) for a duck with the score on 21.
However, unlike last week, our second-wicket pair was able to carry us to victory.
Kyle Presbury (91*) and Keegan French (61*) broke some bowlers’ hearts as they chased down the score in ultra-quick time (one bowler went for 50 off just three overs).
Earlier, of most note in the bowling figures was the wicket alongside the name of Ash Hutchings – good to have you back.
We hope you play as a fill-in more often!
Women winning again
Our women got back winning ways with an excellent seven-wicket win over Payneham on Sunday.
Payneham set a creditable 3/123, with Shannon Chomik collecting two wickets.
In reply, we also only lost three wickets with Brooke Moreland again leading the way, scoring 60 not out.
Bailee Major’s improved vision also saw her benefit, scoring 15 as she and Moreland took the team to victory in the 20th over.
This week: A2 v Pooraka (Waldeck), B1 v Adelaide Lions (Main Oval); LO4 v Payneham (Payneham Oval); Women v Adelaide Uni (Waldeck).
