The visitors didn’t have it all their own way early.

A steady opening partnership between D. Trethewey (33) and M. Cooper (15) saw Parndana to 60 until Johnson took both openers within three balls in the tenth over.

Both Horjus and J. Kelly looked dangerous whilst at the crease.

Both were bowled by Sharp (3/27) for 16 and 14 respectively.

The rout continued afterwards, with the Parndana middle order losing steady wickets for the remainder of the innings.

B.J. Gaskin scored eight runs late to salvage a respectable 119.

Parndana couldn’t help but feel it could have been more, after the start they had been given.

Western Districts run chase, however, never seemed to be in doubt.

Anderson carried his bat for 51no, and was ably supported by Morrison (46).

It was a 79-run second wicket stand by the two batters that took the game away from the home side.

They couldn’t seem to find a way to break the partnership until McMulkin struck late in the 16th over.

Unfortunately by then, the damage had been done, with fivefours and three sixes hit between the pair.

They saw Western Districts home by eight wickets, with just over an over to spare.

Under 16 – Macgillivray outplays enthusiastic KingscoteMacgillivray batted first, captained by Kane Wheaton; Broadie Florance was a stand-out batter.

Three first-time players, Cain and Blake Florance with cousin Tyler Richardson had a good swing but were unlucky on making the runs.

Conditions were not ideal with gusty wind, a few showers and very slow pitch.

Rowan Barrett was the strongest Kingscote batter on the day.

The game was played in fantastic spirit and showed great sportsmanship.
