Magpies hit back
Tuesday, 14th February, 2012
Central has proven it has the hitting power to match it with West after winning the 20/20 grand final replay on Sunday afternoon.
The four-wicket victory over the league leaders will provide a welcome confidence boost for the Magpies with the first final of the regular competition just weeks away.
The win also gives Central the opportunity to represent the city in the Country T20 Champions Cup in the 2012/2013 season.
Central in control
Monday, 13th February, 2012
Central’s batsmen have bounced back from last week’s defeat to guide their team to a five-wicket win against North.
The Bulldogs opted to bat first on the Jubilee Oval wicket but struggled to make an impact on the scoreboard as the Magpies’ bowlers held sway.
Openers Scott Rogers and Ben Victory defended their wickets grimly before Jarred Paull had Rogers caught behind after scoring one run from 46 balls.
Keep cricket alive

The city’s year 5 and 6 students may have no cricket competition by 2013 unless the sport receives more support, according to BH Primary Cricket Association (BHPCA) president Dale Dwyer.
The warning comes as the BHPCA prepares to combine its registration day, coaching clinics and Annual General Meeting at the Norm Fox Oval on Saturday.
Mr Dwyer said that only five teams nominated for the year 5 and 6 hardball season last year, and the competition could be threatened if the poor showing continued.
Robins roll on
Monday, 6th February, 2012
West have confirmed their status as the city’s dominant cricket team after crushing second-placed Central by 81 runs at the Jubilee Oval on Saturday.
Curtis Jelbert led the charge for the Robins with a top score of 66, and received good support from vice captain Paul Attard (35) and Brenton Malthouse (17).
Central made a promising start to the match after being sent into the field, with David O’Malley dismissing opener Rhys Harding for just six runs.

Three of BH’s best cricketers have been chosen to represent the city at the SA Country Carnival early next month.
Opening batsmen Jeremy Ng (South) and Rhys Harding (West) will be joined by North wicketkeeper Tobias Hack in a combined Murray Districts/Barrier team which will take on the cream of SA’s regional cricketers.
“It’s a big honour and a challenge that I am really looking forward to,” 24-year-old right-hander Jeremy Ng said.
