With the help of four Moama cricketers, Southern Riverina won its third straight title at the Riverina Under 14 Carnival.By Geordie Cowan
Four Moama junior cricketers helped Southern Riverina claim a third straight title at the Riverina Under 14 Carnival at Hay last month.
Todd Murphy, Clayton Scott, Dawid Van Tubbergh and Alistair McCann took part in the round-robin competition for Southern Riverina, playing three 50-over matches in three days.
After winning their first two games against Murray and arch-enemy Murrumbidgee, the match against Northern Riverina on November 19 effectively shaped up as a grand final.
Southern Riverina was dismissed for 120, which was not a terrific total, but one which the team thought it could defend.
However, the opposition was quickly cut to pieces by the Southern Riverina, reducing the side to 8/17 before eventually dismissing it for just 41 to record a big win.
‘‘We just bowled well and took the catches,’’ parent Jamie Murphy said.
McCann and Scott were consequently named in the Riverina side after impressive tournaments.
Scott scored the most runs and took five wickets, while McCann captured six wickets for the team.
Murphy, who had just turned 12 and was younger than the bottom-age members, opened the bowling and did well, while Van Tubbergh bowled off-spin and batted as a pinch-hitter, fulfilling his role.
