SUNDAY JULY 31 2016 SPORT 57 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA UNBEATEN Darwin is no longer. The leaders suffered their first loss at the hands of Tracy Village on first innings in the Darwin Premier Grade yesterday. Darwin was unable to match Villages first innings score of 160 when dismissed for 129 before Village managed 221 runs in its second innings. Captain Kyle Scrimegour (74), Stuart Conway (60) and Nick Patterson (32) top scored for Village, while Luke Shelton Were training hard and this is showing in the games K Y L E S C R I M E G O U R Tracy Village captain and batsman Kyle Scrimegour displaying perfect defence en route to making 74 yesterday against Darwin at Kahlin Oval Picture: IVAN RACHMAN Tracy Village too good for high-flying Darwin (7-51) starred for Darwin with the ball. Darwin avoided an outright defeat when they finished at 9-195 after batting a second time thanks to Joel Boucher (53), Josh Doyle (34) and Luke Zanchetta (34) . Tate Robins, who grabbed five wickets during Darwins first innings, ended the game with eight wickets for Village. Scrimegour put his teams win down to consistency at training. We almost outrighted them which is pretty good, he said. Everyone is pretty stoked and everyone is pretty happy. Compared to the start of the year, where we had two wins on the board, we now have won all our two-dayers that we've played so far. He said the team was happy and were looking forward to more good games and staying in the top four ahead of finals. I think its going in with a level head, training has been fairly consistent and we hope to go from there, he said. Training is going well and were training hard and this is showing in the games. In other games, Waratah declared at 6-384 at Gardens in reply to Palmerstons score of 182 with Harry Dalton (120), Brad Schmulian (119), James Seymour (48) and Simon Lewis (47ret) cutting loose. Josh Hoffman (110) and Andrew Hyland (36) helped save Palmerston, who finished at 8-273, from outright defeat as Schumlian completed a superb match for Tahs by taking 5-42 and 5-55. Southern Districts fell an agonising 25 runs short of PINTs total of 365 when dimissed for 340 in a first innings loss at Marrara. At 8-311, Districts were seemingly no chance of bridging the gap, but they never gave up. In the end, PINT survived with Ben Reichstein (4-56), Riley Schipp (2-40) and Tim Garner (2-54) keeping Districts on the backfoot. It was a valiant effort by Districts with Zac Elliott (94), Rob Vandermeulen (76), Naveen Subbiah (49), Lachlan Griffiths (38) and Dean Fry (21) refusing to lie down. Next week, Waratah take s on Darwin, PINT face Palmerston, and Nightcliff square off with Tracy Village. MOLLY BAXTER Australia left in clear spin after heavy loss GREG BUCKLE SPIN once again proved too much for Australias batsmen in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Pallekele last night, with more misery staring the tourists in the face next week. Veteran spinner Rangana Herath claimed 5-54 and match figures of 9-103 to roll Australia for 161 before tea on the fifth day of play. Herath and debutant spinner Lakshan Sandakan dominated in the home sides 106run win, taking 16 wickets between them. Left-arm wrist-spinner Sandakan baffled Australias batsmen, while 21-year-old Kusal Mendis set the game up for the home side with a brilliant second-innings knock of 176. The tourists now face the daunting prospect of Thursdays second Test in Galle being staged on a raging turner. Steve OKeefe, the spin bowler who has been ruled out of the Galle Test because of a hamstring injury, limped out to bat yesterday with Australias score on 8-157. Herath bowled with seven close-in catchers to OKeefe, who was reluctant to sprint for any singles. OKeefe appeared to be caught at bat-pad off the bowling of off-spinner Dhananjaya de Silva, but umpire Richard Kettleborough said it was pad only and Sri Lanka had no reviews left in the 79th over. Kettleborough gave OKeefe out lbw three overs later against the bowling of Herath, but the batsman called for a review which showed an inside edge. Wicketkeeper Peter Nevill shared a ninth-wicket stand of four runs with OKeefe in 178 balls at a run-rate of 0.13, before Nevill was out caught behind. Its the lowest scoring rate in a partnership in Test history, with a minimum of 100 deliveries. Herath fittingly claimed the final wicket, bowling OKeefe for four and roaring with delight. Australia lost 4-58 in the first session yesterday, including 3-2 off 18 balls, after resuming on 3-83. *Comic Books 2-14 are available from 24/7/16 to 5/8/16 for $2.60 each when you buy the NT News or Sunday Territorian.
