ANYINGINYI Health Aboriginal Corpora-
tion took a team of basketballs to repre-
sent Tennant Creek in the Central Austra-
lia Basketball Competition organised by
The team were made up of players who had played
in the local Anyinginyi Basketball Competition and
was a reward for the consistency, team work and
there regular attendance to the training sessions.
Five regions were represented for the challenge,
including two Barkly teams of Tennant Tigers and
The Tigers started their competition off against LA
Knights in which was a close game with the Tigers
coming from behind at half time to win by a point.
The next three games to complete our round robin
of games saw our team of Tigers win easily and
finish on top of the ladder and with a forfeit by the
Elliot team in the semi final, saw the Tigers move
straight to the Grand Final
The Grand Final was against LA Knights in
which saw out boys start off slowly with limited
game practice before the grand final, however
after half time the Tigers moved their way back
into the game with some inspiring efforts by the
young brigade of Kane and Bronson Plummer
and Dwight Hayes, and some great leadership by
captain Steven Lawton.
However in the final stages the Knights got a few
baskets in to win the game by 6 points.
Big thanks for Nick Foster for taking the team
down and also to Harvey Williams for his prepara-
tion to the team with training and facilitating the
local Anyinginyi Basketball Competition.

THE Warrego Heat won the Ten-
nant Creek Cricket Competition
over the Devils Marbles Hotel in
a nail-biter on Friday Night, the
first cricket competition in nearly
In what was a beautiful evening under
lights on Purkiss Reserve, Warrego Heat
won the toss and decided to bat first.
Captain Vijay Garfield led the team out
by opening the bat with Abhinav Purelli,
but it was the Devils winning the first
battle with bowlers Matthew Hicks (0
for 12) and Justin Hooker (2 for 14),
bowling tight and creating pressure for
the batters to score.
After drinks, the Heat need to get some
runs on the board for them to defend, and
they did, with Sid Vashist hitting 24 of
20 balls to get them going.
The Devils kept getting wickets and
when Vashist went, the Heat were 8 for
66 and looked like being out for under 80,
however a 31 run partnership between
Sam Rayapaty (20 off 22) and Joseph
Tatpudi (14 off 13), the Heat completed
their 20 overs to make 98 runs.
Kym Bracken (3 for 12) and Gerry
Shadforth (2 for 17) were the best of
The Devils came out; knowing that they
just needed to keep their wickets in hand
and score the required five runs an over
to win the game.
They had a nervous and watchful start,
and the Heat bowlers and fielders were
The Devils opening didn’t put much
pressure on the scoreboard and it was
only Jeff Blow who chipped around the
field getting the runs ticking over.
The Devils felt all in control and were 3
for 61 and just needed to keep the score
run ticking over at four runs an over to
win, however then the wickets started to
tumble and then the Heat were on top
with quick wickets of Shadforth, But-
terworth, Burns and then the big blow,
Jeff Blow (out for 30 off 27). The Devil
Marbles had gone from 3 for 61 to 8 to
90 when Bracken was bowled.
Then with Justin Hooker and Olivia Fry
out in the middle, the Devil Marbles just
needed hold their nerve and get some
runs, however they needed to keep their
wickets in tack.
Then it was two overs to go, the Devil
marbles needed four runs to win and the
Heat needed to get the two wickets left.
In the second last over Olivia Fry was
bowled, in which Heat just needed to get
one last wicket in the last over, and the
Devil marbles needed one run to draw
or to win.
Justin Hooker went for the hit, however
it found Prahbu Kiran and he took the
catch to give the Heat the win in the 20/20
Tennant Creek Cricket Competition by 1
run. Sam Rayapaty bowled terrific to get
4 for 14 off his 3.1 overs.
Was a great season of 5 teams battling
it out and we look forward to whatever is
next in the life of Tennant Creek Cricket.
Big thank you must go to all the teams
for helping out with umpiring and scoring
duties, and to Wayne Green for all the
support of getting cricket up and going
in Tennant Creek once again.
