Roopena won an all important toss on a very good batting track in its Whyalla cricket match against South Whyalla at Memorial Oval on Saturday.

Roopena hasbeen juggling its top order all season and once again began with a new combination of Nick “Slim” Johns (48) and Dale Chenoweth (13) which may be the combination that they move forward with in finals.

Chenoweth and Johns were both dropped behind the wicket off Simon Trezise.

Chenoweth fell to the economical Mitch Ruth (1/25) before Johns began to open his shoulders against Vandeleur (1/69) but he eventually fell to a phenomenal outfield catch to Wilsden, off Beeps.

This brought together Phil Smith (83no) and Greg Fiebig (96no) who combined for a 170-run stand to see out the innings.

Both batsmen played intelligent cricket milking the bowling and continually rotating the strike.

South toiled hard but were outclassed by the two most crucial players in Roopena’s finals deck.

Fiebig now firms as one of the favourites for the Whyalla News Medal.

South got off to a shocking start with Sawtell (0) and Mullighan (7) removed by the wily veteran Jeff Ewings (2/8).

Ewings, who has been a regular in A reserves over the past few seasons, looms large as a very important player as his finals experience is just what Roopena needs.

Hedges (0) fell cheaply and when Ruth (1) was involved in a horror run-out South were on the ropes at 4/9.

Captain Vandeleur (30) came to the crease and was soon put under pressure with some great inswing bowling from his nephew Matt Woolford (1/9).

Vandeleur was the lone hand and the only South player to reach double figures which is disappointing at A grade level.

Heading to finals the firepower of Slim, Kanga and King along with Fiebs as an anchor is the key to Roopena moving forwards in the finals.

The three other finals contenders will be concerned about the possible return of Rhys Lacey as he will be a crucial addition to an inexperienced bowling line up.

Roopena 250 defeated South Whyalla, all out for just59.

Man of the Match: Greg Fiebig (Roopena)

North Whyalla 3/144, West Whyalla 140

North Whyalla desperately needed this win to stay in touch with the top two and a possible double chance.

West needed a win to stay in the hunt for finals, but it was not to be.

Matthew Quist sent the young Dragons in on the hard deck in a brave move, possibly one he wouldn’t have made if Paul Wilson was in the A grade.

Sam Frick (0) was dismissed on the 22nd straight dot ball of the first dig which set the tone for the rest of West Whyalla’s innings.

Crowhurst (31) Smith (18) Starkey (27) and Captain Croft (27) all got starts but it was Quist (4/40) who rattled the middle order with West all out in the 37th over.

It was Quist (63) who stood tall for the Magpies as he along with cameos from McDonald (18) Beaty (17)and Big hitting Atkinson (36) had North cruise to victory.

North still seem like the most balanced team with a deep batting order.

Quist in great form with close to 500 runs for the season and Atkinson is starting to see the ball like a watermelon and islooming as a real threat.

With half a dozen genuine seamers and the spin of Quist it is a formidable line-up.

The T20 victory over Roopena on Friday night would also help to boost the self belief of a group that has underperformed in finals in previous years.

A disappointing end to a promising year for West who have plenty to work with for next season.

Man of The Match: Matthew Quist (North Whyalla)

Central Whyalla 7/185, Westlands 9/87

Central Whyalla replaced Westlands on top of the ladder in a dominant display at Memorial Oval on Sunday.

Westlands got off to a perfect start with Cam Stewart (1/22) removing the dangerous Brad Smith (6) in the first over.

Captain Scott Collison (101) returned to form with a gritty century compiled over 48 overs which led his team to a competitive total of 185.

It was a lone hand from Collison as the middle order failed apart from handy contributions from Jarrad Dunbar (22) and Rowe (14no) and Schreiner (14no)

The Jaritz brothers snared two wickets each but John Davis surprisingly only bowled four overs on a turning wicket.

A feather in the cap of Collison as his opposite number was probably concerned that a fired up he might launch him to all areas.

In reply it was Bartel (3/22) and Daniel Collison (3/28) that put the brakes on the stolen car that is normally a Westlands run chase.

Westlands lost 6/9 in the space of six overs to come to a crashing halt.

Cam Stewart (20) and John Davis (24) battled hard but the ship had sailed and Westlands were bundled out for 87.

Westlands are still dangerous and would hope to shake off this loss -they may still have not found their best 11 as their A reserves have won five of their past six games with some strong individual performances.

Their reliance on Dave Dunbar scoring is evident and he is well and truly the barometer for theirsuccess.

Central on the other hand look strong as an in-form Collison will look to further cash in against a hapless South next week as he and his team look to cement the minor premiership.

Man of The Match: Scott Collison (Central Whyalla)

T20 FINAL

North Whyalla 3/141, Roopena 8/139

Allan “Kanga” Woolford (42 off 22) proved he is still one of the best power hitters in Whyalla cricket with a blistering start to Roopena’s T20 innings.

He and Chenoweth (25 off 19) put on 42 in the first five overs before Chenoweth was run out. Fiebig proved an anchor for Woolford as he went on to take on Quist for consecutive “Zacs” (that’s a six in Whyalla speak).

He chased a wide one and was stumped but his job was done with Roopen 2/81 after nine overs.

Some quality seam bowling from Beaty (1/24) and Branford (1/16) tied up the Roopena middle order with Smith (29) and Fiebig (12) finding it hard to dispatch the North attack.

Paynter (3/31) cleaned up the last few with Roopena ending up on 139 feeling they were about 20 to 30 runs shot of what they would need.

Quist (37) and Clothier (23) got North off to a solid start with Clothier run out in the fifth over with North on 32.

Atkinson (45 off 19) provided the spark North needed taking spinner Nick Todd for four consecutive monster sixes to blast 27 off the 13th over which would turn the game.

The spin of Chenoweth and Todd costing 56 off three overs.

The emerging young gun, Matt Woolford, bowled well in a critical stage with only 17 off his four overs.

Phil Smith (2/26) removed Atkinson and Clothier.

In the end Chris Beaty (19) guided North to their first silverware in A grade cricket in quite some time.

Matt Quist took out man of the match honours.

Roopena probably did enough with the bat but just lacked that strike bowler to be able to damage the North top four, a great game on a beautiful night.
