THE lights were turned on at Purkiss
Reserve last Friday evening to kick
off an action-packed, big-hitting week-
end of cricket in Tennant Creek, when
the 2014 Rossy Williams Cricket Shield
launched into action.
It is the only weekend for the year in which
cricket comes alive here, thanks to the organ-
isational skills and dedication to the sport by
Anyinginyi Health Aboriginal Corporation.
In all, 10 teams entered the competition, with
cricketers from as far away as Ti Tree and as
young as the Wangkana Hostel youth, who
replaced a team from Alice Springs which for-
feited at the last minute.
The teams were divided into two groups and
the Round Robin games commenced when last
year’s grand finalists, the Telegraph Cyclones,
stumped up against the Noble Floods.
This match was then followed by a fiery chal-
lenge between the Pebble Hurricanes and the
Warrego Heat, with the Cyclones and the Hur-
ricanes getting the points in these games.
Super Saturday bowled up 12 games over
a demanding 12 hour period that saw some
teams perform well and continue to improve
throughout the weekend, while others found
the challenge daunting and struggled to bring
their A-grade game to the ground.
Sensational Sunday finished off the round robin
games with match ups that would determine who
would finish first and second in the group and
play off in the Semi Finals.
The first final saw the Telegraph Cyclones
come up against the Pebble Hurricanes.
The Cyclones ran riot by batting first, with Dar-
ryl Lowe and Mick Baker destroying the bowlers
and belting them all over the park.
Lowe hit a magnificent 68 not out with 6 full
lobs and 6 boundaries, while Mick Baker pro-
vided valuable support, hitting 24 not out.
After seven overs the Cyclones made 105 runs;
the highest innings score of the tournament.
Hurricanes padded up to a huge task, however
they didn’t get off to a great start and some
tight bowling from the Cyclones saw this game
disappear for them as the Cyclones seized a
The second semi-final saw the Golden Explo-
sions take on the Stuart Storms from Ti Tree.
The Storms batted first, however they lost an
early wicket and then brought on Maji, who hit
three 6s in the first 2 overs.
Cruising along at 1 for 26 off 2 overs, the
Stuart Storms faced some tight bowling by the
Golden Explosions which brought the run rate
down and the Stuart Storms finished up with a
score of only 51 off 7 overs.
The Explosions then batted and also lost an
early wicket, however a strong partnership and
some big hitting from Ben and Taki gave the
Explosions a win for the match and a place in
the Grand Final.
After 23 matches it came down to the final
face off between the Telegraph Cyclones and
the Golden Explosions to see who would be
crowned the 2014 Rossy Williams Shield win-
The Explosions knew they had to get off to a
good start which they did and quickly had 24
runs off two overs.
With this run rate they were in with a chance,
but as wickets started to fall it was soon all
over with the Telegraph Cyclones winning the
2014 Rossy Williams Shield for the third time
in three years.
