Easy target for Loxton cricketers
Loxton is poised to claim an
easy victory against Renmark
after bowling the Royals out
for just 86 in the opening
round of Riverland A grade
two-day cricket on Saturday.
The Tigers are 4/73 in
reply, needing just 14 more
runs to pass Renmark.
Renmark got off to a good start,
but most of Loxton's bowlers hit
good areas on a two-paced pitch.
The wickets of Simon Turk,
Dylan Thompson and Ash Lindner
proved pivotal as Loxton found
little resistance in Renmark's tail.
Josh Norman took 5/16 from his
15 overs in a remarkable effort,
while Tristan Graetz took 2/13.
Loxton's openers got off to a
good start and had some luck with
a lot of playing and missing.
Thompson took a good catch at
third slip to dismiss Graetz (10),
before Norman (17) and Albrecht
Ryan Nickolls came to the crease
with an aggressive mindset and
smacked the ball around before
being clean bowled by a ripping
leg spinner from Lindner on 19.
Kale Smith (5no) and Josh Deren
(6no) will resume Loxton's innings

the past season and a half.
Taylor put on 89 for the third
wicket with Tristan Geehman (45)
and 76 for the fourth with Tim

58 runs for the wicket partner-
Ron Hooker was the best of
Berri's bowlers, finishing with 2/29
from his 13 overs, while Darren
Skilton also took two wickets.
Loxton and Brown's Well went
head-to-head in the B grade
competition on Saturday, with
Loxton electing to bat.
Lachlan Patterson got off to
a good start, taking three wick-
ets, while Conrad Slabber, Travis
Victor and James Patterson both
took two a piece.
Loxton were bowled out for 78
and the Tigers then had their work
cut out for them.
Loxton bowled some good lines,
taking five wickets before Brown's
Well passed the score.

Loxton's under 14 side walked
away with a victory on the
weekend, defeating Renmark on
the second day of the two-week,
Renmark was the first to bat on
Saturday, November 22 and com-
piled a total of 104 off 37 overs.
Renmark's Jayden Mason made
a quick 22, before he was caught
out by Jack Oats off of a Llayton
On Saturday, Loxton got off to
a slow start, but Llayton Biele
played an excellent game and was
able to get nine boundaries.
Biele was named man of the
match, after making 63 not out
before retiring his innings.
Jack Oates game him great sup-
port in a 52-run partnership to
steady the ship for Loxton.
Jake Durdin and Bromley
Nitschke made sure Loxton were
able to pass Renmark's score with
overs to spare.
Loxton finished 9/130, giving
them their second win of the sea-

Krystina said she was already
looking forward to Durdin's return,
with the North Melbourne recruit
set to come home for Christmas.
"We will see him again in about
two and half weeks time," she said.
"Obviously in that time there will
be a fitness program and he has
to meet up with the other South

so they don't lose that fitness."
Despite the busy few days,
Krystina said Durdin was "really
appreciative" of all the support he
has received from the Riverland,
Murray Mallee and Karoonda com-

where he has come from and really
appreciates everything that people
have done for him and all the wish-
