PHILLIP Island A Grade ventured
over to Inverloch on Saturday to
play the reigning premiers from
Losing the toss they were sent in
to field with some new additions
to their side due to strike bowlers
Tom Officer and Simon Kirton be -
The capable replacements of
Matt Wright and Blake Christopher
were by no means out of place with
Matt getting the ball rolling by grab -
bing the first wicket for the Sharks
when Inverloch had just managed
His efforts of 1/11 off five overs
were backed up by Jack Cox who
toiled away all day to end with fig-
ures of 17 overs 1/47.
Youngster Christopher also had
a crack with the ball however the
visitors were soon to discover that
the Inverloch boys had prepared a
wicket that suited the Island spin-
Zac Brown continued to improve
on his consistency and gain mo -
mentum as the year goes on with
figures of 17 overs 2/63, which will
give him confidence on his maiden
voyage overseas to England where
he hopes to further his cricketing
With contributions from all bowl-
ers the game was on even keel with
Inverloch however another stand
out performance from internation-
al Charith Keerthisinghe with 6/63
off a whopping 32.1 overs kept In-
verloch to 197 runs after they bat-
tled hard and kept their patience
on a turning pitch.
The Island boys will head over
this Saturday, looking to work on
batting the whole day, and if they
manage to do so, it will go right
down to the wire.
Leongatha Town won the toss
and elected to bat on their fast, dry
ground at Scorpion Park.
The Town openers went on the at-
tack from the first ball, taking 12
off Jack Spencer’s first over and
racing to 35 after just five overs.
Stuart Cox got the vital break-
through in the 14th over – John
Pouw well caught in the deep by
Wade Paterson for 40.
Warren joined Barney Pouw and
kept the score ticking along.
It took until the 24th over before
Phillip Island took their second
wicket, when Barney was bowled
by Wade for 34.
Town were off to a great start at
2/95 with 36 overs remaining and a
big score was looming.
Niven took out Warren’s leg
stump and suddenly Town lost mo -
mentum, scoring just 23 runs in
the next 12 overs thanks to tight
bowling by Wade and Coxy.
The game was evenly poised at
the tea break after 40 overs with
Town on 3/128.
Leongatha skipper Kreutzberger
and Cashin came out swinging after
tea and the score raced past 200.
Kreutzberger was finally caught in
the deep by Francis off Niven for 39.
Cashin also fell to Niven for 44 as
did Goss to a brilliant reflex caught
Town forged their way to 243 off
their 60 overs – a big total for Phil-
lip Island to chase next week.
Steve Niven was the pick of the
Island bowlers taking 5/33 off 13
Other wicket takers were Wade
Paterson, 8 overs 1/21, Mark Lee,
5 overs 1/28 and Stu Cox, 9 overs
Other bowlers were Blake Young,
10 overs for 46, Jack Spencer,
4 overs for 36, Peter Francis, 10
overs for 47 and Dave Kenter, 1
over for 1.
A Grade in the balance

the home and away season last Sat-

some very exciting tennis.
The tennis club would like to con-
gratulate all of the players for their
participation in the 2015-16 Kor-
rine and District Tennis Association
(KDTA) junior tennis competition.

and Cowes Total Car Care.
Finally thanks to all of the parents
and team managers who dedicated
their Saturday mornings to sup-
porting their kids and junior tennis.
Section 1: Phillip Island played at
home against Wonthaggi.
With only three points separat-
ing these teams this match was a
must-win to continue into the finals
With this clearly in mind Wont-
haggi put their top scoring experi-
enced players on the courts and this
worked well for the away team.
The Phillip Island team went in as
the underdogs with injured player
Riley Weinzierl unable to play on
Riley continued to show great
team spirit and sportsmanship sup-
porting and encouraging his team
mates throughout the day.
To her credit, Section 4 player
Cailen Lone stepped up to fill in for
Phillip Island and performed well
playing some of her best tennis.
Unfortunately for Phillip Island
the Wonthaggi’s hard hitting and
consistent play earned Wonthaggi
the final win. Well done.
Final score: 44 games to 36 and
Oscar Marks and Isaac Batty
showed some excellent tennis and
performed well to win both their
singles 6-4 and 7-5 and doubles to-
Doubles partners Wil Lone and
Cailen worked well as a first time
doubles team they were overpow-
ered and unable to convert the last
two points going down 6-4.
Well done team on a challenging
and tough season of tennis.
Now there is plenty of time to
practice for next season.
Section 4: Phillip Island Red
played in a home club derby against
Phillip Island Blue.
The Reds, consisting of Poppy,
Seth, Astro and Jonah teamed up
against the Blues consisting of Con-
nor, Kristos, Alannah and Michael.
All players were looking forward
to the home match as they all
train together but rarely get to play
against each other.
The more experienced Blue team
came away with the win putting
them in second place on the ladder
and gaining their team a semi-final
Final score: 48 games to 10 and
The close match of the day goes
to doubles partners Alannah and
Michael against Astro and Jonah
The evenly matched Poppy and
Connor played off against each oth-
er in their singles.
With the scores locked at 3 all
Connor was able to break loose
from the hard hitting Poppy and
convert the last three points to win
Well done to the Red team in your
first season of tennis. No doubt you
will continue to grow and improve
your tennis each year.

an away game against the Western-
Saturday’s players were Lucy
Dean, Gabe Smith, Mackenzie Wain

sistently well and won the day.
