The score had advanced to 133 when
Jack missed a straight one for 17.
With 'The Yak' starting to settle and
Kirton getting bumped up the order with
a licence to go big, the Sharks were put-
ting a score on the board.
Strangely though Kirton must've had a
bout of short term memory loss because
he was batting like it was day one at the
With a couple of timely reminders from
his team mates from the sidelines that he
was more than welcome to use the piece
of wood in his hand, he finally got one
away hitting the Club's opening bowler
Thomas over his head for a large one.
The licence clearly expired shortly af-
ter when Kirton departed for 8.
Charith got a quick 10 not out and Yak
finished with a much-needed 30 to see
the Sharks finishing their day 9-177.
Captain Cleeland was extremely happy
how the team didn't crumble and got
through the 75 overs with wickets in
It's up to the bowlers now to defend the
score but the boys are certainly sniffing
Captain Tony won the toss and with
the Cowes oval looking in mint condition
elected to bat.
Parsons and Keating opened the bat-
ting and Parsons looked in great touch
clipping off his legs with ease.
What was Keats thinking in what had
shades of the Francis Johnston running
style set off for a single to see Matthew
short by a good 4 metres.
Zac Brown strode to the wicket and
looked good , Keating departed with a
shot about as poor as his calling to leave
the Island reeling at 2 for 8 and unfor-
tunately for Brown he joined the boys in
the pavilion at 3 for 15.
Tony Hornsby looked assured but
could not get his look away hook go-
ing just yet, Connor thought they would
show him how but unfortunately skied it
and we were 3 for 20 odd.
Mick Young joined Tony and we needed
Mick looked good from ball one and
the Island got some momentum
Tony got his leg shot going and des-
patched a couple and Mick joined in hit-
ting a big six, but sensibly followed up
to the change in field to punch a single.
Unfortunately just before tea Tony
thumped a ball and the fieldsman's chest
Matt Wright joined Mick and steadied
to tea Matt was playing the perfect foil to
Micks aggression and Mick went on to
notch up his second fifty of the season.
Matt departed at 111 but the last two
partnerships had given us a platform.
Clint Wilson after a long layoff was
welcomed back to Island Cricket and
was looking the goods playing a straight
bat until he was sledged by an unlikely
source the next two shots went 6 and 4
back and then just continued to ride his
Mick at 53 dabbled outside off and was
unlucky to be caught but was a knock
that was needed. Quirky and Clint kept
the score moving and put on 30 odd be-
fore Quirky went and Clint's luck run out
on 31 a foot from another six.
Anton had another 50 nibbed in the
bud on 2 when our last wicket went for
A good bowling performance required
for the Sharks.
C Grade headed to Korumburra Sec-
ondary College to take on the undefeated
Peter Francis won the toss and elected
to bat on a slippery and patchy wicket.
The Korumburra opening bowlers
were right on the money, and made it
hard to score.
In the third over Telfer dismissed Carl
Muscat for 4, and a mix up between
Christopher and Finlayson saw Christo-
pher heading back to the shed for 1.
A good partnership followed between
Finlayson and Todd Kenter before Todd
holed out on 14.
Francis joined Finlayson and the Is-
land finally started to get on top of the
Finlayson played some great pull shots
and raced to 41 when he tried one too
many and lost his middle peg.
With the score on 4 for 71 Phillip Is-
land and still 32 overs left the Island had
a good platform to build a strong total.
Unfortunately Francis and Asbury de-
parted soon after for 9 and 1 respectively
leaving the score on 6 for 96 at tea with
20 overs to come.
Disaster struck in the first over after
the break with Mick Cleary caught be-
hind for 8 and Blake Christopher follow-
ing the same way the very next ball.
Wade Paterson scored a valuable 19,
but when he was out and Mark Lee fol-
lowed for 2 the Island was all out for a
disappointing 117 in 50 overs.
With 10 overs to bowl quick wickets
were vital and Blake Young didn't disap-
point, bowling a fiery 5 over spell.
He had Brinksma dropped in slips in
his first over then removed his middle
stump for a duck in his second.
Todd Kenter then removed the danger-
ous Churchill for17 and the Burra fin-
ished on 2 for 24.
Quick wickets will be needed next week
if Phillip Island is to have any chance.

WANT A FUN, social netball program that is tailored
for different fitness levels, age and skill levels?
A free four-week pilot program will run from Tues-
day, November 17 from 6pm at the Bass Recreation
Netball courts, and is open for females 15 years and
Rock Up Netball is part of the VicHealth funding
Changing the Game: Increasing Female Participation in
Sport, with the program in Bass a partnership between
Netball Victoria, GippSport and the Kilcunda Bass
Football Netball club.
Its aim is to help females play netball in a social, fun
and inclusive environment.
Netball Victoria Participation Development Manager
Scarlett O'Sullivan is excited by the uptake so far with
20 participants already registered ahead of the Novem-
ber start date.
"Bass is one of eight pilot programs across the state
and the response overall has been fantastic with the
Bass program having one of the highest registration
rates," Ms O'Sullivan said.
The program will offer flexible, participant-led and
"pay as you go" activities for women and girls over 15
who want to become more active.
It's designed to provide social, fun and unstructured
opportunities for both beginners and those coming
back to netball.
With the first four weeks free, it gives the community
a chance to be part of the program design and prove
that an ongoing program can be sustained.
Corinella resident Kimberley Black has been instru-
mental in promoting the program and her motivation
"I'd love nothing more than to be able to get back on
the court and play a social game with friends and oth-
ers I am yet to meet in the local area," Ms Black said.
"I haven't played netball for 15 years so going straight
into a competitive environment wouldn't work for me.
The interest has been overwhelming and I can't wait for
our first session."
GippSport, through the VicHealth Regional Sport
Program, is focusing on developing new opportunities
to increase the number of people participating in sport
with a particular focus on those currently inactive or
who have low levels of physical activity.
Program Co-ordinator Gene Parini believes the Bass
program will go be a huge success.
"Unfortunately, we know that girls and women are
generally less active than men, particularly when it
comes to participating in organised sport. We need to
do more to encourage girls and women to play sport
and these projects will provide females with fun, flex-
ible, and social opportunities to be more active."
To get involved simply register your interest at http://
vic.netball.com.au/run_bass/ at or just rock up ready
to have some fun. If you require any further informa-
tion you can contact Gene Parini at GippSport on 5674
