Nathan Paschke won the toss
and chose to bat and the team
was quickly in trouble at 3/8 in
the sixth over.
Tim Bevan and Tristan
Geehman began a rescue mis-
sion. They took the score to 57
off 18 overs when Geehman was
dismissed for 23.
This brought Mark Shaw to
the crease to join Bevan as they
worked the ball nicely to build a
63-run partnership to put Waik-
erie in a good position. Shaw was
out for 31 off 51 balls with four
fours and Chris Schutz joined up
with Bevan in the 34th over fresh
from 65 not out against Loxton.
Bevan brought up a well
made half century but 'Schutty'
stole the show as he smashed 32
off 20 balls with five fours and
Schutz was dismissed with

Bevan ended up on 61 not

his team post a good total.
Renmark had the job in front
of it and needed a good start
from Ash Lindner and Simon

At drinks after 20 overs, Ren-
mark was struggling at 1/46 and
needed six an over to win.
Renmark could have been in
far greater trouble as poor catch-
ing kept it in the game.
Dave Golding removed Zac
Gallo after he and Lindner had
taken the score to 64.
This brought a rush of wick-
ets as Stephen Taylor came to
the bowling crease and took 3/20
off four overs, including Ash
Lindner for 48 as he skied a ball

Alex Lean ended with three
catches at mid-off and Rick
Griffiths also chimed in with

Captain Paschke was more

delivered a solid win and hopes
it will continue against Berri
after Australia Day.

WAIKERIE Black Sox found itself
back on the winners board with an
emphatic victory against Berri Three
on Friday night.
The Black Sox came from behind once
again to win 7-2.
Berri Three got off to a good start,
keeping the Black Sox scoreless in the first
innings and batting in two of their own play-
ers to take an early 2-0 lead.
Both start-off pitchers were giving noth-
ing away, pitching tight and showing great
variation that kept the batters guessing.
Liam Christian managed to keep a clean
sheet for his first two innings for Berri,
while Waikerie's Aaron Best had the oppor-
tunity to do the same.
However, a few fielding errors allowed
Berri to score twice.
At the bottom of the fourth innings,
things started to change for the Black Sox.
Leading by a massive home run to Stefan
Best over left field, momentum swung
Waikerie's way, scoring seven runs for the
innings off Berri's Roly Beviss.
This was backed by Grant van Rooyen's
solid pitching and strong work in the field
and they were able to control the game from
that point on.
Van Rooyen showed huge improvement
at the mound this time around, looking
more confident and managing to strike out
a number of batters.
He finished off his three innings with a
Waikerie's Shaun Steele also played a
great game at his first time playing first
base, anchoring many clutch plays with safe
hands whether the ball was coming in on the
full or on the bounce.
Players to score for Berri Three included
Harrison and Roly Beviss.
Waikerie's scorers included Damian Ste-
vens, Aaron and Stefan Best, Anton Barrow,
Grant van Rooyen, Liam Schiller and Glen
Waikerie Black Sox will be taking on
