The Demons skipper smashed 110 to lead his side to 256 on day one of their two-day match at Albrecht Oval. Huddle said walking to the crease angry was a key to his innings. When I went out there to bat, it was fair to say I wasnt happy, he said. Federal ASbuild had slumped to 7/120 at that stage on what looks to be a perfect batting wicket. We said at the start of the day that 250 was where we want to be, and we got that, but not in the way I wanted to, he said. Huddle and Aaron Hill put on 131 for the eighth wicket, with the skippers century coming up in just 17 overs. I know I was hitting the ball well and Hilly down the other end was just magnificent, he said. Hilly is a hitter too, and for him to not play his natural game and hang around with me was great. The Demons did rely on the master blasting of Huddle, while Tom Clements compiled a rock solid 53 before a sharp catch by Craig James at mid off had the Federal ASbuild dangerman walking back to the sheds. Tommys innings was first class and I thought he was going to bat all day, Huddle said. After reaching his milestone, Huddle smashed his seventh six before getting caught on the deep cover boundary rope by Mark Bramley. I was a little disappointed with myself because I knew there was still 14 overs left in the day, he said. West captain Jayden Dick, who led the side for the first time in the absence of Leigh Polkinghorne, said his side was just one wicket away from being on top in the match. All we had to do was to get Shuds (Huddle) out, he said. But he came out and in that one little session put them back in the game. West had to face a tense 30-minute session, and succeeded in keeping all their wickets in the shed for next weeks run chase. Dick remains unbeaten with in-form opener Ross Fraser as West will start day two on 0/17. The West captain said there were a few anxious moments in the last 30 minutes of the day. Its never a good time to bat, you can only get out, he said. I think we will take confidence into next week knowing we have all 10 wickets still in hand. Dick said the experience of leading the A grade side was one he will never forget. It really was a thrill, but Im sure I could have done things a bit better, he said. McCoys triple treat MOTORCYCLING Warren Thomson Tyller McCoy KATHERINES Tyler McCoy and Toby Canning claimed the juniors double at the Alice Off Road Mechanical Deep Well MX on Sunday, taking out the 85cc and 125cc respectively. McCoy took out his third consecutive Deep Well title, scoring 70 points to narrowly beat Jerakye Andrews (66 points) and Liam Walsh (60 points). McCoy, who took out his class on a Yamaha Y28S, was happy after his three-peat. Im feeling good about the result. Its my third year in a row, so it is good to get the win, he said. The track was a bit rough, but the weather was pretty good and wasnt as hot as last year. I always come back here for Deep Well. Its one of the best I race in each year. I thank all my sponsors and my mum and dad for their support. Canning scored 70 points to win a tight 125cc class, beating Alice Springss Matt Manuel by one point and Jett Seymour by eight points. McCoy said it was great to see one of his fellow Katherine riders have success at a big event. I ride with Toby a lot at home and he had a crash in the last race, but I think he is feeling alright, he said. Weve got a few junior riders in Katherine and its good to see another person from Katherine up on the podium. Stokie wins Deep Well Paddy Geraghty concentrates during the race Picture: CHLOE GERAGHTY n From Page 28 I got a really good start in the last race, which made things a lot easier and I had a dust-free run. It was a very tight final race. Stokie said the result is a welcome one as he prepares for the 2013 Tatts Finke Desert Race. Its a lot different to Finke, although everyone says it helps contribute to Finke, but its definitely a confidence booster to win the first race of the year, he said. I thank Michael Vroom and all the boys at Desert Edge Racing Team for all their help. There was lots of tight racing, but Alice Springs riders did well against visiting riders from Darwin, Katherine and Kununurra to keep class trophies in Central Australia at the Alice Off Road Mechanical Deep Well MX on Sunday. Alan Nicol took out the Masters class by three points over Matt Bell, with Daymon Michael finishing 12 points behind the winner. Local duo Matt Lawr e n c e a n d J o e Penaluna won the Pony Express over Joe Sabadin and Steve M a d d o c k s , w h i l e Damian Taylor won all three races in the Clubman class to beat Simon Dower and Matthew Aplin for the title. Rob Lovett took out the Pro-Lites class by winning all three races, while two points separated Robbie Armstead and Brad Dunn, who finished second and third respectively. Adam Lloyd recorded 69 points to win the Quads by six points over Chris Rothwell, while Willie Orr won all three of his races to take out the Senior Quads class. Orr finished with an 11-point lead over David Lloyd, who won second by four points over Brad Geraghty.
