Through a round four high score of 61 to Tom, Cows finished their 20 overs with a score of 104. Despite matt (31) and John (26) showing spirit during the run chase, Bats ran out of overs. Barras v Crocs IN THE second game of round four, Barras claimed a 40-run win, thanks in part to the red-hot batting form of Matt. Matt posted 44 for Barras, with Jeff adding a handy 30 runs before retiring. In response, Singh (36) was the only player to put the willow to good use for Crocs. Crocs Rod was the best with the ball for either team with his 2-16 off four overs. Junior cricket JUNIORS B were too strong in their clash against Juniors A and posted a 10-run win. Lachlan O. (11) starred with the bat for Juniors A, while Hugh hit 10 valuable runs for the victors before he had his stumps rattled. Lachlan M. was on fire with the ball for Juniors B and claimed match-best figures of 3-11 from two overs. KDCA president Melinda Sauer said training times had changed due to dwindling daylight. Training is now at 5pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays due to the hours of daylight getting shorter, she said.

On May 13, Unathletic Midriff kicked off the round four victories by producing a classy 5-2 win against Smokin Bacon, before Spartans triumphed 2-nil against We Can Be Heroes.

Good Enough struts its stuff as seven-a-side finals series approaches >> sport IN THE match of the round, the on-field action was sizzling when the Katherine Camels locked horns against the revitalised Ngukurr Bulldogs in round three of the Big Rivers Football League on May 16. The Bulldogs got off to a flyer and kicked the first goals before the Camels manned up on their opponents and slowed the game pace down. Broderick for the Camels created some much-needed appetite for the Sherrin and got the ball out to runners on numerous occasions. An injury to Amarant resulted in a delay in play before he was stretchered off and carted away in an ambulance. The quarter-time break had both coaches being extremely vocal with their players and demanding nothing but the best. The second quarter was a tussle, with both teams kicking a few goals. Wurramara from the Bull dogs started to show his class, as was Camels star Tom Gleeson, who was like a general off the halfback line, marshalling his troops into the right positions. When the half-time siren sounded, the Ngukurr outfit was up by just four points. The Camels came out firing after the break, with Gleeson and Bell getting plenty of ball to the forwards. The final quarter was like the third, with the Camels dominating the clearances and on the scoreboard. The Bulldogs were hit by injuries in some fierce contests and were running out of legs, but Lansen tried valiantly to keep his side in the game before the Katherine team finished with six fourth-quarter goals to seal a 33-point win.
