52 SPORT FRIDAY OCTOBER 4 2019 CAVE01Z01MA - V1 Dingo let out of his cage after a year KEEGAN Dingo is once again able to play football. The Southern Districts footballer applied for re-registration into the NTFL on Monday after serving a year out of the game for crossing the threshold of games suspended. Seeking re-registration in front of an independent panel, the panel felt comfortable that Dingo met the criteria for re registration under the national guidelines, which speak to; being genuinely rehabilitated, unlikely to reoffend and that he does not pose an unacceptable risk to other players or officials. Some of the information discussed showed Dingo as an active participant of the community through other sports as both a player and a coach. Keegan Dingo All invited to attend a free forum COMMUNITY sport representatives from in and around Alice Springs are invited to a free upcoming forum to hear how they can help build and maintain healthy, family friendly environments.

Waring is leading the NT at Champs THE Northern Territory are currently competing at the Under 17 Cricket National Championships, being led by local lad Banjo Waring. Waring was named captain of the NT side for the Championships that began on Tuesday, a prestigious accolade. The tournament did not get off to a good start for the Territory side with the NT boys los ing to WA in round one by eight wickets. Batting first, NT were skittled in just 31 overs for a total score of 97. Opening batsman Jayllen Naganayagam was a shining light for the Territory side, scoring a quickfire 41 but received little help from his teammates. Things got better for the NT side in their second match against Victoria Country, however they still went down by 75 runs. Chasing an imposing total of 260, Centralian opening batsman Tom Kelaart stood tall with a composed 44 at the top of the order. Waring also chipped in with 20, however it wasnt enough to help the side to a win. Dont Slee-p on our Jeremy ANTHONY GEPPA anthony.geppa1@news.com.au THE Pump and Power Open field may have been highlighted by a strong Japanese contingent, but no one appeared to tell local lad Jeremy Slee. Slee put together a stellar run at the biggest tennis tournament of the year to date, defeating Kiichi Ishida 7-6(4) 6-3 in the final to claim the title. The number three seed overpowered his fancied opponent, coming back from 5-0 down in the first set to score the win. Making the victory even more impressive, Slee went through the tournament without dropping a single set as he lost just eight games in his first three matches. Slee said he was thrilled to take out the tournament, saying the final proved a tough slog against an opponent he knew very little about. I am very happy to be taking out the tournament, this tournament last year I lost in the final but this year I was able to pull out the win, Slee said. I was in good form through the tournament. I just stuck to the basics and didnt do anything fancy. (I tried) keeping the ball deep all the time, coming forward to the net to keep my opponents guessing. Not knowing much about (Ishida), it was hard to put together a plan. I went down 5-0 pretty quickly and then managed to come up with a plan and took out the set 7-6. It was an impressive tournament for locals with young gun Patrick Findlay taking out the 16 and under boys singles title, defeating Thomas van Haaren 6-7(3) 6-2 11-9 in the final, before paring with van Haaren to win the mens doubles title by defeating Slee and Jarron Kretschmann. Local Keely Bishop also tasted success at the tournament, paring with Sidni Finch to win the womens doubles crown. Ethan Bowhay and William Kelaart partnered together to run through the 16 and under boys doubles, while Micaela Hull managed to take out the ladies consolation tournament. A second tournament, the Scope Building Classic began on Wednesday and will conclude tomorrow. Alice Springs' Jeremy Slee won the final of the Pump & Power Open on Tuesday.
