LUBECK-MURTOA defeated Horsham Saints in the only Horsham Cricket Association B Grade match to achieve a result through play at the weekend.

The game between Jung Tigers and Colts at Horsham’s Dudley Cornell Park was drawn because the pitch was saturated with water on Friday night after a sprinkler malfunction.

Blackheath-Dimboola forfeited its match against Rup-Minyip last week due to a lack of players.

A century from in-form Horsham Saints player Bradley Sproule was not enough to seal an upset win for the Saints against Lubeck-Murtoa.

The Saints batted first and made 9-179, with their score being chased down by Lubeck-Murtoa in the 39th over.

Lubeck-Murtoa batsman Heath Callaby made 55, while wicket-keeper Hamish Gawith was not out on 47, to steer the side to 6-184.

Lubeck-Murtoa’s Heath Lang finished with 5-6 off seven overs and made 29 with the bat.

Sproule’s century included eight sixes.

In the C Grade, there was a massive upset as ladder leader Homers lost to Colts, who were in ninth place heading into the round.

The Colts batted first and made 167, with Michael Rothery making 61 not out and openers Daniel Collins, 20, and Josh Eldridge, 29, chipping in.

In reply, Homers managed to bat out their 40 overs but could not reach the required total, finishing 8-154.

Jung Tigers did their finals chances no harm as they defeated Quantong.

The Tigers made 8-139 after batting first, before bowling Quantong out for 91.

Lubeck-Murtoa also stayed in the finals hunt by beating Laharum by 43 runs, while Noradjuha-Toolondo had a close game against Natimuk, winning by 18 runs.

Both Horsham Saints teams played yesterday at Coughlin Park, Horsham.

Labor’s transport policy: less of the same

ALP’s modest transport policy: Opposition Leader Luke Foley. Picture: ANDY ZAKELILabor’s transport policy isn’t really one.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

There is nothing in the positions unveiled by Opposition Leader Luke Foley to suggest the party has spent much of the past four years giving serious thought to how to make Sydney or NSW better places to move around.

There was plenty of criticism of the government’s agenda.

But what was Labor’s vision? Less of the same.

Two main differences emerged on Thursday between Labor’s transport policy and the Coalition’s, neither of them based on principle.

Labor, denying itself the funding boost of electricity privatisation, would delay construction of another rail crossing of the harbour for four years.

In other words, the public transport priorities of both major parties are aligned. The Coalition would just hustle harder and deliver quicker.

The second major difference is that Labor would scrap one section of the WestConnex motorway – a tunnel under the inner west – and lengthen two others.

These are the M5 East tunnel, which Labor says should run closer to the port at Botany.

And the M4 East tunnel, which, absurdly, the party says should run to the city.

Does that mean the central business district, Foley was asked on Thursday.

“We should want to get – yes –the M4 to the city,” he replied.

Foley, naturally enough, wouldn’t commit to a route.

Does he want the tunnel to emerge at Hyde Park? The Domain?

What about the basement of James Packer’s casino?

Presumably Foley doesn’t want a motorway in Martin Place. But he would leave the planning to the experts at Infrastructure NSW – the same “experts” who came up with the route he spent much of Thursday decrying.

Foley is not the first politician to suggest the M4 motorway should run to the city. When Julia Gillard did at 2013 election, even the toll-road industry thought it was weird.

“The big need is not to dump people into the CBD,” Scott Charlton, the chief executive of toll-road operator Transurbansaid at the time.

“Public transport is really the most efficient way to deliver people into the CBD.”

But Foley didn’t have much to say about public transport.

Dean vents his frustration with an unbeaten 145

DAMAGING: Bathurst cricket product Jono Dean hit an unbeaten 145 opening the batting for Weston Creek-Molonglo on Saturday.CRICKET
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

JONO Dean might have been disappointed that his name didn’t even get to the stage of being offered up as a potential Indian Premier League buy at the auction last week.

But not as disappointed as the North Canberra Gungahlin bowlers, who felt the brunt of Dean’s frustration during their match against Weston Creek-Molonglo in Canberra first grade on Saturday.

The Bathurst cricketing product hit an unbeaten 145.

The result wasn’t the one either side would have wanted as the match petered out to a draw due to torrential rain, but there was no doubting the impact of the Bathurst opener as he played a brilliant solo hand to give his team a chance.

North Canberra declared their innings closed at 9-344, setting their opponents a formidable target at Stirling Oval.

Weston Creek’s best chance was for Dean to tee off, their dependence on him even greater given the absence of his brother Blake, who missed the game through injury.

Dean duly delivered on his end of the bargain, taking charge against the new ball and putting on a clinic.

The problem was that at the other end, there wasn’t an ounce of support in the initial stages. It forced Dean to exercise a little more caution than he otherwise would.

Weston Creek slipped to 3-14 before Harry Medhurst came to the party and offered some good support with 43 from 90 balls in a partnership of 107.

Once he fell, the responsibility fell back onto Dean to try and prop things up and he obliged.

From the moment Medhurst fell, 97 runs were added and Dean’s batting partners Michael Delaney and Warren Clunes contributed just 20 of those.

When stumps were drawn after 63 overs, Dean was still unconquered on 145, his second century of the summer for his club.

Weston Creek finished on 5-218 when the heavens opened, needing another 127 at around a run a ball.

“We were three for nothing which didn’t help things much, then a couple of guys got a bit of a start and we put together some partnerships to give ourselves a chance,” Dean said.

“I hit them pretty well, but had to take a bit more time than maybe I normally would because of the early wickets. I think we were still in a pretty good spot when it all ended, it would have been a close finish.

“It just hosed down though, so there was no chance of us getting back out there.”

So far in 2014-15 Dean has racked up 439 at first grade level at an average of almost 63, while those numbers go up to 672 at 67.2 when the Regional Cup is included.

Team-wise, a win in the final round against ANU will guarantee Weston Creek fourth spot.

“I think if we could get into fourth that would be a great outcome given the first half of the season, the lead-up to Christmas was very disappointing,” Dean said.

“We just have to make sure we turn up ready to play. Hopefully we’ll have Blake back from his hamstring problem and make sure of what we have to do to get through.”
