quarter. Warnock finished with 19 points,
while James McLeod also played a good
game for Renmark.
Lehmann dominated for the Warriors in
their six-point women's win over Renmark.
Lehmann scored 15 of her 27 points in
the first half, before Renmark tightened up.
However, that just allowed Waikerie's other
players into the game, with Mica Liu (10
points) and Tegan Griffiths (six) lifting.
Waikerie held a narrow lead all night,
with Renmark unable to gain any momen-

with 15 points, while Abby
Perry was also pivotal.

WAIKERIE Gold Cricket Club
honoured its stalwart Jon Matthews for
his 50 years' involvement with the club
on Saturday with a past players vesus
present players T20 cricket match.
Past players travelled from across the
state to attend the match, which a large
The first event of the day was the bowl-
ing accuracy challenge where bowlers had
three balls to see how many times they could
hit the stumps.
Past player Glen 'Bopper' Horner made
it through to the final against current Waik-
erie Gold wicket keeper Damien Fridd who
looked like he couldn't miss the stumps if
Fridd went on to win the challenge and
claim the gold medal in a thrilling sudden
death bowl-off which saw Horner miss out
by a close margin.
Present players captain Damien Fridd
won the toss and decided to bat, sending
in an enthusiastic past players team out to
It didn't take long before the wickets
started tumbling for the present team.
The only real resistance came from
Fridd, Lance Twigden and Liam Howell.
Highlights for the fielding side included a
strong catch from Benny Schutz, Craig Mat-
thews claiming his son Kaleb's wicket with
his first ball and Rick Matthews knocking
over his sons Kane's wickets for a duck.
After an innings the present players
managed a score of 132, which looked like
it might not be enough against the line up.
One concern was Horner who left the
field with a ankle injury and was unable to
take any further part in the match.
During the lunch interval, the highly an-
ticipated big bash competition began.
Players displayed big hitting and some
less than impressive hits gave the crowd a
laugh, especially that of 'Skeet' DeVito who
swatted more flies than he hit balls.
In the final Justin Ward, Mark McDonald
and Twigden came together with Ward con-
necting with a massive hit on his last go,
winning the gold medal much to the disbe-
lief of the on lookers.
When the second innings got under way,
the past players required 133 for victory and
to bragging rights for the day.
Luke Horner, Schutz, Steve Gay and John
Georgeopolous were the only players who
reached double figures for the past players.
The Matthews versus Matthews battle
continued out in the middle with Kaleb
getting his revenge on his father as well as
knocking over his Uncle Rick in an impres-
sive spell of bowling.
At the conclusion of their innings the
past players could only manage 112 runs,
going down by 20 runs in an exciting and
The final planned activity for the day
was the classic catch competition where
players were made dizzy before attempting
a high catch.
Mick Surfield came out and took two
classic catches to claim the gold medal.
After the cricket festivities were com-
pleted a fantastic meal was enjoyed by all
before a presentation conducted by Daryl
Hilton and Drew Bevan saw them interview
Matthews in front of a captivated crowd.
Questions were asked about Matthews'
cricket career and stories from his time with
Waikerie Gold were shared.
Matthews' wife Judy gave an emotional
speech and then she herself was awarded
with a gold medal, just for putting up with
Other guest speakers included David
Raines who recalled some very funny mo-
ments and words from Fred Tyler and his
wife Cass who spoke beautifully and were
full of admiration for Matthews' achieve-
At the end Matthews was given a recogni-
tion award from the Waikerie Gold Cricket
Club for his 50 years of dedication before the
crowd gave three cheers for a job well done.
Alongside the premierships of the past,
the day was regarded by many as one of the
best days in the clubs history.
The Waikerie Gold Cricket Club would
like to thank everyone who helped out with
the event and especially the Waikerie Rotary
Club for the loan of their shade shelters and
for the use of their public address system.
