Victoria dominates Junior National Championships

14 July 2014

Victoria has dominated the Indoor Cricket Junior National Championship that concluded in Adelaide on Saturday, claiming two of the four titles on offer.

In an incredibly exciting final, the Victoria Under 13 boys got the better of Queensland in an over-time mini match. After both teams posted 99 runs, it was the Victorian side that found the edge in overtime and took out the title.

The boys from Victoria continue their Nationals dominance, this time in Under 15 boys final. Taking on Western Australia in the final, Victoria claimed the win thanks to a 124-96 score line.

After finishing the minor rounds in top spot, the New South Wales Cyclones Under 17 girls had to fight hard in their win over Queensland in the final. The win completed an impressive week for the Cyclones, who finished the Championships undefeated.

Sitting third leading into the finals, the Western Australia Under 17 boys made their way through the semi-final before reaching the all-important final agisnt Queensland. The boys from WA held their nerve to claim a one-run win, the scoreline reading 97-96.

Juniors set for finals action

11 July 2014

A number of South Australian teams look to be finals bound heading into the last minor-round matches at the Indoor Cricket Junior National Championships.

With the top four teams in each division qualifying for finals, the SA Under 15 boys look to have wrapped up a spot in the business end of the Championships recording wins over VIC and QLD on Thursday. The boys sit second on the ladder with one game to be played against the top-ranked WA side.

Also in finals contention is the Under 17 boys and girls, the boys are fourth despite a loss to WA yesterday and take on QLD today to cement their spot. The firth-placed SA Under 17 girls recorded a narrow win over VIC White yesterday and will need to beat the second placed QLD side today if they are any hope of making finals.

Another win to the Under 13 boys keeps them off the bottom of the ladder in sixth place. The boys have shown great signs on improvement and will take that confidence into their final game of the Championships against NSW.

Finals beging this afternoon at the conslucion of all minor-round matches.

Youngsters on the board

10 July 2014

It was smiles all round yesterday as the SA Under 13 boys recorded their first win of the Indoor Cricket Junior National Championships.

Taking on the top-ranked Queensland side, SA’s eight-run win moved the boys off the bottom of the ladder. No doubt they will look to continue this form when they take on ACT and WA today.

The Under 15 boys share top spot on the ladder with WA and VIC with only percentage splitting the three sides. Wins against VIC and WA today will go a long way toward securing a finals berth.
SA’s Under 17 girls suffered loses to NSW and VIC on Wednesday; the girls now face an uphill battle to qualify for finals.

Sitting in fourth position, the Under 17 boys hold a ten point buffer over the fifth-placed VIC, the team they secured a win against on day four.  A win over WA today will see the boys within reach of a finals clash.

Under 15 boys leading the way at Junior Indoor Nationals 

9 July 2014

South Australia’s Under 15 boys side has continued its dominant run at the Indoor Cricket Junior National Championships with a narrow win over QLD yesterday. Despite a loss to WA earlier in the day, the boys remain on top of the ladder going into day four of the Championships.

A convincing win against ACT and a disappointing loss to QLD has the Under 17 boys sitting in fourth position after six matches. The boys will take on NSW and VIC on day four of competition as they look to get themselves back into finals contention.

The Under 13 boys remain at the bottom of the ladder falling to the hands of WA and QLD yesterday. A narrow loss to WA will give the boys some confidence as they take on QLD and VIC today.

It was a disappointing day three of the Championships for the SA Under 17 girls yesterday, recording losses against VIC White and QD. The losses leave the girls in fourth position on the ladder ahead of VIC White and NSW.

Tough day for SA sides

8 July 2014

It was a tough day for three of the South Australian teams at the Indoor Cricket Junior National Championships yesterday, with only the Under 15 boys managing to record wins.

The Under 17 girls had a tough start to the day with a big loss to NSW Cyclones before fighting back to claim two points in their loss to VIC. The results keep the girls sitting in fourth position on nine points with one match on day three, against QLD.

SA’s Under 13 boys have had a tough start to the Championships, winless after four matches, and will be looking to record wins against QLD and WA on day three.

The Under 15 boys are equal second on the ladder, two points behind VIC and undefeated after four matches. Wins against QLD and WA on day three will keep them in the hunt for the title.

For the Under 17 boys day three could be moving day. Currently sitting fourth on the ladder with two wins on day one and two losses on day two, the side takes on ACT and QLD in a couple of must win matches.

SA teams in the hunt after Day 1

7 July 2014

South Australia has made a steady start to its’ campaign at the Indoor Cricket Junior Nationals in Adelaide.

At the conclusion of matches on day one, SA is looking dangerous with one team sitting atop the ladder and one in second place in their respective age groups.

The SA Under 13 boys are without a win after matches against NSW and ACT and will face NSW Cyclones and VIC on day two.

It was better news for the Cameron Bullard-led Under 15 boys who are undefeated after three games. The boys play just one match on day two against NSW Cyclones.

The Under 17 boys finished day one second on the ladder having recorded wins against ACT and VIC. Day two will pit SA against NSW Cyclones and WA.

A tight win over NSW and a loss to VIC saw the SA Under 17 girls finished day one in fourth place on the ladder. The girls will be hoping to claw their way back up the ladder with wins over NSW and VIC on day two.

“The squad has an exciting mix of new talent with four players who will make their debut at the Mens Open level, including Mitch Thomas who played in the inaugural Premier League competition, and players with a number of years experience including former captain David Sampson who was unavailable in 2013," Coach John Lonergan said. 

“After making a Preliminary Final in 2011 the squad has gone through some changes during the last two years, but we believe this squad has the right mix of experience, enthusiasm and raw talent to get the SA Spiders back competing for a Finals spot at the Nationals.”

The SA Spiders will commence training in April, and leave for the Nationals in Victoria on Friday July 18th.
