Four local boys headed down the coast on Saturday to play cricket against Albany in this year’s Toyota Country Cup qualifying round. The 20/20 format is a bit of a change to the normal 45 over cricket played locally with the winner progressing to the next round of fixtures.
The Upper Great Southern team did not have much success on the Saturday,losing both games convincingly so no deciding game was required on the Sunday.
Highlights of the weekend included Heady getting hit for one of the biggest sixes ever seen in Albany, Kal getting spanked for 32 off one over, and Conan and Dame copping some stick when it was their turn to bowl also. Not many runs were scored between the local lads either.
We wish them better luck this weekend as KDCC play Cuballing as normal fixtures return.

Kukerin Bowling Club
Sunday saw the completion of the men’s singles championship. The first semi-final between Ian Faulkner and Clive Bahr was evenly and keenly contested early, however, as the game progressed Bahr gradually asserted his authority and won his way into yet another final. The second game between Peter Davidson and Tim Adams proved to be a thriller. Scores were even nearly all the way and at the end Davidson prevailed 25---23 in a very good display of draw bowling by both players. The final between Bahr and Davidson was keenly contested and scores were locked together a few times but as the game wore on Bahr again gradually gained control to be Kukerin Club champion for season 2016—17.
The plate event final was won convincingly by Matthew King from Phil Adams.
Next Saturday Kukerin will be at home for the final game of the season against Karlgarin. This game has become a cutthroat affair as the winner will progress into the finals and it will be curtains to the loser. There will be bowls practise on Friday afternoon from 4.30 pm. Hope to see a good roll-up.
