The BHRDCA is proud to be a supporter of a new online program to support men and their families dealing with prostate cancer.

 

Over 20,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year – making it the most common cancer in Australia (excluding non-melanoma cancer).

 
We have over 900 men playing in our Veterans comps, so raising awareness is vital to ensuring our dads, uncles, brothers and even some grandpas are informed, know the numbers and become mindful of the risks.

 
A new program launched by Australian Prostate Cancer Research in late 2013 is now helping men all over Australia to become more informed, and for those with prostate cancer, providing support to manage their health.

 
PROSTMATE is a free, confidential online program providing personalised information, advice and support. It includes tools to track progress, treatments and appointments, self-help programs and offers online telehealth consultations with prostate cancer experts.

 
We recommend you check out PROSTMATE today and share this link through your club.

After an extremely exciting lead up to the semi finals they are finally upon us.  To all Clubs throughout the year thank you for your hospitality it is much appreciated.  I have been concentrating on the lower grades this year where cricket is just as important if not a little more relaxed, it has been wonderful catching up with people I have known for many years.

 
To Clubs participating in finals all the very best, let’s hope the weather holds out.  We have had a great year with outstanding performances in all grades.

 
As to who has won the McIntosh Trophy my lips are sealed, feel free to check out my Face book and you will be surprised who you recognize from previous years, I have had some very interesting comments.

 

I will not comment on whom I think will win McIntosh Shield but I have an idea after watching performances throughout the year.

 
Don’t forget the BHRDCA Presentation Night on the 4th April and please feel welcome to bring wives/partners or daughters as last year the women nearly out represented the men.  It is a night to acknowledge the winners and their achievements and to meet ministers, councillors, sponsors and of course friends.

 

Warmest Regards and Best Wishes,

 

 
Margaret McIntosh.

In partnership with the team at MySportlive, the BHRDCA are excited to announce the 2013/14 McIntosh Shield Grand Final will be streamed LIVE.

Semi-Finals Matches 2013_14

On Saturday there was an end of an era at Yarraleen CC when a gentleman of the game played his last match.  Peter Saville played in his last match in the One Day C game against Mulgrave Wheelers Hill CC which I am told also brought up is 450th game.

Peter is a wicket keeper and took a catch and a stumping to prove the skills are still all there in Yarraleen’s strong win.  We wish Peter all the best and thank him for his contribution to BHRDCA cricket.

The Glen Waverley Hawks Cricket Club would like to acknowledge and congratulate Glen Mahoney who played his 300th match for the club on Saturday. Glen is only the third player in the club’s history to reach this milestone.

 

Glen first played for the club in Under 16’s in the early 1980’s and is the leading run scorer in the club history, just shy of 10,000 runs. He has played in 5 premierships which includes all three of the club’s A1 premierships and recently captained our club’s 2nd XI to back to back Wilson Shield 2nds flags in 2011/12 and 2012/13. He also has a distinguished record off the field having served as President from 2005/06 to 2007/08, Treasurer from 1993/94 to 1994/95.

 

His contribution to the club was recognised in 2000 when he was awarded Life Membership. The Mahoney name has featured throughout the entirety of the club’s history with Glen having played with his late father Jim, who also coached the club, and now currently playing in the same team with his son Mitchell.

 

Congratulations Glen on a fantastic achievement.

The captains and Umpires meeting will be held Wednesday March 5 at VERMONT CC 7.30pm. This is a compulsory meeting for all sides with teams in finals. The expectation is the captain from each competing side will be there but each competing club MUST be represented.

 

There will be light refreshments provided after the meeting,

 

BHRDCA CoM

The next delegates meeting is Tuesday March 4 at 7.30pm at East Burwood. Please ensure ALL My Cricket is completed asap and umpires reports are sent in asap to help with finals information and allocation.

 

Thanks in advance.

Box Hill North Super Kings taking on the Zebras posted 230 as Russell Arnold continued his impressive season with 62, while Russell McManus 4-45 gave the Zebras some hope. Rain would have the final say with Forest Hill 0-105, Ben Johnston 66x, ending the match in a draw. Super Kings are well placed going into the last game of season.

 

East Burwood batted first at Blackburn South and posted an imposing 8-326cc with Sean Bramstedt 133, 10 sixes, driving the total and putting his claim as to one of the best batsman in the competition. Sincock chipped in with 71. Blackburn South could only muster 164 with Steve Mundy 49, while Sean Bramstedt 4-42 did the damage as well with ball.

 

In a must win game to stay of relegation Templestowe would pass East Box Hill’s 7/155 in the 28th over calling it a day at 6/156 with Nishida Sopariwala’s unbeaten 66 being the highlight.

 

Vermont made 6-227cc with the experience of Bradd Taylor 79 leading the charge well supported by Mitch Rickarby, 40, demonstrating his all rounder talents. The Eagles defeated St Davids who could only manage 155 with Chris Bell’s 4-44 doing the damage. A good win which will give the Eagles plenty of confidence heading into the finals.

 

In other games Bulleen Templestowe 5-162 had the better of Heatherdale 7-158cc to continue a disappointing season for the Dales and virtually ensure finals action for the Bullants.

 

Pushing for finals Blackburn 5-166cc with Skipper Luke Davis 80* once again leading the way, defeating Mitcham 9-145cc with Mark Wheeler’s 52 the only bat to get going. The Tigers now face a must win last game to remain in McIntosh Shield next season.

 

Wilson Shield Grade

 

Laburnum 4-221cc B.Leed 70, Henderson 60 d Kerrimuir United 9-156cc Jordan Wise 40, Taylor 4-45. Laburnam remain in finals contention while Kerrimuir now must win at home to GW Hawks to ensure their season is extended.

 

Looking to consolidate its top 4 spot Vermont South compiled 6-260cc with Lahiru Anthony 75 the pick of the bats. Mulgrave Wheelers Hill only scraped together 104 with Anthony 5-15 completing a great double.

 

In a must win game Eley Park 8-157cc chased down Heatherdale’s 150, Graham Elliott’s 50 wasn’t enough and Ross Pryde 5-34 did the damage with ball for the victors.

 

Glen Waverley Hawks made 9-167cc, Apurwa Sarve the best with 51 and Nick ‘Bongo’ Greenhalf, taking 3/40. Koonung Heights secured a home final chasing them down to finish on 6-171, Greenhalf with 50 completing a good day out.

 

While ladder leader Blackburn North 4-131 (D.Wayman 61) had no trouble with Doncaster 9-125cc who were best served by Mark Albiston 51*.

Bulleen Park Carnival_A4

Due to the Saturday forecast of 40c, ALL junior and senior play scheduled for Saturday 8th February has been cancelled.

 

All scheduled 2 day games will now be played as a one day game Saturday 15th February, weather permitting.

 

Permits may be reapplied for.

 

BHRDCA CoM

 

Due to the current forecasts of 40 Saturday and 39 Sunday, I must inform you that in consultation with Michael Sukkar’s office Sunday’s charity and community games have been cancelled by the association hence this early notice.

 

I am very appreciative of the work the participating clubs have put into this and I know that there will be a number of very disappointed kids who were looking forward to representing BHRDCA for the first time in their lives.

 

This was a very important initiative for the assn and the opportunity of raising money for charity is one that we want to be part of in the future and hopefully will become a permanent fixture in the junior calendar. Therefore we are negotiating an alternative date, probably just prior to the start of next season.

 

Again thank you for your hard work, support and understanding.

 

Peter White

Junior Section Manager

Thank-you, BHRDCA CoM

 

With finals very much around the corner the top 4 in both McIntosh and Wilson Shields are not set in stone and round 9 proved to be important.

 

McIntosh Shield

 

Blackburn needed a win against Forest Hill at home to stay in touch with the top 4 and the home side delivered. Batting first the Zebras were going along nicely at 4/148 before losing 6wickets for just 19 runs to post a below average 167. Aaron Taun-Henderson scored an 11 boundary 64 but it was Matt Yeo’s 5/22 that stole the show on day one. The home side stumbled to 5/60 thanks to Peter Jones’ sharp work with the new ball but it was Robbie Chancellor who guided the Panthers to a fantastic victory, his 81* sees Blackburn move to fifth spot on the ladder just 4 points shy of a finals berth.

 

In a largely inconsequential game to both the finals and relegation battle Blackburn South played St Davids at Mirrabooka Oval in an action packed high scoring affair. Sent in to bat the Cobras made the most of some poor fielding and had the measure of the Saints most of the day. The home side as able to post a remarkable 324, with a host of batsmen getting starts. Peter Alderton (59)was the only batsman to reach a half century for the day while Dean Sofianopoulos (5/101) continued his good wicket taking form. The St Davids run chase was always ahead of the run rate but the home side were capable of taking wickets at the crucial moments. The Saints eventually stumbled to be all out for 298, a fantastic win for the home side. Mike Enticott’s 67 was the highlight for the batting side while Mundy 3/33 and Thompson 3/54 were great with the ball.

 

At Howard Wilson Oval it was the Sean De Kretser show, the Heatherdale premiership skipper was ruthless in his dispatching of the East Box Hill bowlers. De Kretser was able to bat the whole innings and compiled a brilliant 176* he was assisted brilliantly by Brenton Toole (66) and Lachie Johns (43). After their 80 overs the Dales finished up at 6/363. It was always going to be tough for the Breakers in reply Andrew Bethune provided the only real resistance with 55 as Nick Rodwells 4/40 ensured the visiting side would come away with an emphatic win, eventually rolling East Box Hill for 146.

 

In a likely finals preview Vermont hosted Bulleen Templestowe at the Vermont Recreation Reserve and came away with a fairly comfortable win. Bating first, The White Ants were ever really able to recover after being 4/45. Jack Berry (47) and Andrew Verga (41) provided some fight in the middle order their 76 run stand saw the visitors eventually post 205 from their 80 overs. Mitch Rickarby’s excellent season continued with another 5 wicket haul (5/49). In reply it was all Brad Cullen the Eagles opener blasted a brilliant 112* which combined with Rickarby’s 41* saw the home side win by 5 wickets with still 22 overs left. These two sides are now equal first with BHNSK on 42 points atop the McIntosh Shield ladder.

 

Templestowe were able to claim a late season scalp at East Burwood Reserve. Thanks to Nish Sopariwala’s 57 they were able to post 173 and overnight on day one had the home side reeling at 3/12. East Burwood were never able to recover from that damage and 4/13 from Daniel Arfi combined with another bag of wickets (4/55) from Luke Costa saw the Stowers roll their opposition for 154.

 

At Walker Park the Box Hill North Super Kings continued their march towards the finals with an emphatic 7 wicket win over the Wilson Shield bound Mitcham Tigers. Batting first the home side posted a more than defendable 221 with half centuries to Abbot (84) and Johnson (55) the cornerstones of their innings. Jamie Phillips was he pick of the bowlers with 5/41. In reply the Super Kings showed why they sit in equal firs position on the ladder, losing just three wickets on the way to 228 and a big win. Ramesh Shanmugam’s 69 was vital in steering the visitors home.

 

WILSON SHIELD

 

In what was undoubtedly the match of the round at Terrara Park the Vermont South Vultures were able to take a scalp and give themselves some breathing space in fourth position. Batting first only Ben Davis (61) provided any real resistance as wickets at regular intervals saw the Bulldogs post only 183. Fantastic bowling from Guruge (5/45) cemented his favouritism for this seasons Fred Watson medal. Lahiru Anthony was ruthless in his batting the next week, contributing 73 of the last 78 runs to guide the home side to a convincing 5 wicket win.

 

At Wellington Reserve Mulgrave/Wheelers Hill were unable to extract themselves from the relegation battle. The home side going down in a close game to Laburnum. Ashley Keys was brilliant for the visiting team, taking 3/44 then smashing a brilliant 56* to guide his team to 9/212 and a hard fought one wicket victory.

 

Eley Park were another side looking to move away from the relegation zone when they hosted the Glen Waverly Hawks. Batting first the home side were rather disappointing, limping to a paltry 166, Luke Galle (3/34) was the main destroyer for the Hawks. In reply Jarrod Greaves (61*) ensured that Eley Park were never really a chance. The visiting side finished up at 5/169 still with 16 overs remaining.

 

At Greythorn Park it was Doncaster who provided the upset of the round, knocking off second place Koonung Heights. Their patient batting really grinding the home side, a host of batsmen were able to get starts, Tim Waters (54) was the pick of the bunch. At stumps Doncaster finished up at 9/267. Two early wickets from skipper Sam Noble (3/48) really got the ball rolling for Doncaster. Wickets at regular intervals proved to be too much for the home side as they were bowled out or 208.

 

Kerrmiuir United well and truly put their early season blues behind them. Their 5th consecutive victory came against Heatherdale at Heatherdale reserve. Jordy Wise 3/67 played the role of spearhead as the home side were rolled for just 199. Needing 200 for victory the Muirs were never really challenged. They got there for the loss of just 3 wickets and look like the team to beat come finals.

Inaugural Deakin Community Cup to support local organisation

 

Sunday 9th February –  Terrara Park, Vermont South will showcase some of the best junior cricket in the Deakin electorate. Ten junior clubs from the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association will join forces making two teams and play three match’s simultaneously in an under-10, under-12 and under-14 carnival.

 

The BHRDCA Deakin Community Cup will be run with the support from Michael Sukkar MP, Federal Member for Deakin and other businesses in the local area. This is a charity event and all money raised through gold-coin donations will be donated to Taralye, an organsition in Blackburn that assists children with hearing loss.

 

To decide the teams the electorate has been spilt into North and South, using Central Rd as the geographical borders which means;

 

North will include Mitcham, Blackburn, Blackburn Nth, Heatherdale & Laburnum, and

South will include Forest Hill, Heathmont, Vermont, Vermont South and Nunawading

 

The North Team will be named Deakin Hutchinson and the South Deakin Davis after the first two elected MP’s for Deakin.

 

All participating players will receive a special cap to commemorate the occasion provided by Mr Sukkar, who will also be on hand to make the presentations for team and individual awards at the end of the matches.

 

The three games will commence at 9.00am with the U/12 and U/14 playing 25 overs each innings and everyone in the community is encouraged to come down to support the players.

 

Peter White, BHRDCA Junior Section Manager says, “It is sensational to have Michael Sukkar’s involvement in this event.  We think this is a fantastic opportunity to not only showcase each of these clubs, but junior cricket as a whole.”

 

A sausage sizzle and other family entertainment will also be available on the day.

 

Please contact Emma Boschetti, Marketing Manager BHRDCA, on 0420 906 197 for more information or to get involved.

30-01-14 Junior cricketers get set for inaugural Deakin Community Cup

BHRDCA_Deakin_Community_Cup

Over the past month or so there have been a number of requests to reopen MyCricket matches.

 

The majority of these requests have resulted from the HOME TEAM’s actions when they have (incorrectly) confirmed scores before the AWAY TEAM has had an opportunity to complete or check the scores & enter their player records. It is the AWAY TEAM’s responsibility to Confirm the match.

 

To clarify the BHRDCA MyCricket Match entry requirements…

 

BOTH TEAMS should enter their Selected teams (the equivalent to a Team Sheet) prior to, or at the latest, by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match commences

 

The HOME TEAM should enter the Short Result & update the Match status to a Saved Match Result by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match has concluded. (NOTE: Any earlier progress scores i.e. Innings entered after Day 1 of a Two Day game should only be saved as a Match in Progress.) Where possible, the HOME TEAM player performances should also be entered by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match has concluded (NOTE: This makes it easier for the AWAY team to meet their match completion obligations & for the Ladders to be formalised as early as possible in the days following the actual match conclusion)

 

The AWAY TEAM has up to three days after the match has concluded e.g. Tuesday at 6.00 p.m. to enter their player performances & to ensure that the HOME TEAM has entered the result correctly. The AWAY TEAM on ascertaining that the match result & team lists are correct should then Confirm the match as an accurate reflection of the Match outcome.

 

This will trigger an alert to the BHRDCA that the match day administration has been completed and the result (and Ladders) will be made official.

McIntosh Shield

 

With 7 Rounds now completed all competitions are starting to heat up at both ends of the ladder. After extreme heat conditions throughout the week players were greeted with cooler conditions.

 

Box Hill North Super Kings took on arch rival East Box Hill. After batting first East Box Hill would post a competitive 9/152 with Damian Yze making a swash buckling 77 not out. The Super Kings were never really threatened with Tom Mitchell 66 not out and Brad Carroll 43 the stars. The Super Kings sit in 3rd position and look in premiership contention.

 

Bulleen Templestowe now sit on top of the ladder 4-171 after defeating bottom of the ladder Mitcham 9-170cc. Michael Abbott 50, Alex White 40 for the Tigers, while Adrian Tabaccheria 5-21 for the Bullants. Mitcham still remain 6 points clear on the bottom and face the relegation.

 

Blackburn travelling to Templestowe would only manage 124 with Andrew Hone 5-22 Templestowe in the match, but the brittle Templetowe batting once again was brought undone only managing 8-116cc. Nishidh Sopirawala 42, while Burners stalwart Andrew Steele 4-39 proving the match winner with his experience.

 

St Davids at home to East Burwood in a very important game to stay in contact with the top four, but also to stay out of the relegation zone they would steam roll East Burwood’s respected batting for a disappointing 109. Chris Jones 51 the only highlight, while Brent Williams 5-15 would be the destroyer. East Burwood struggled to get early breakthroughs with Erilcott and Williams setting the platform with a solid opening stand. Ryan Coutts 27 not out, while Williams 31 not out would see victory from the home team.

 

Defending Premiers Heatherdale sitting in 9th place in a season they would like to forget so far took on Vermont who were keen to carry on their recent form. After winning the toss Vermont would post 207 with Jarrod Moody 71. Heatherdale could only manage 155 Lachlan Johns 64. Mitchell Rickarby taking 4-30 for the Eagles to inflict more pain for the Dales and putting its finals chances in severe jeopardy.

 

At home Forest Hill have been the benchmark team to date this season sitting on top of the ladder. Taking on Blackburn South these two teams in the past have had some exciting clashes with this one no different. Winning the toss Forest Hill would be all out for 144, a score well below its standard so far this season. Jarryd Taun-Henderson the only real shining light with 29. The Cobras chasing would lose Captain Steve Alderton early and with the top order rocked at 4/21 the Zebras looked in the box seat. Anthony Giuliano would play a mature innings for 45 and contributions by Seaton Mundy 29 and Steve Vormain 20 not out would get the Cobras over the line in a thriller 9/147 to remain in finals contention and give the Zebras second defeat on the season.

 

Wilson Shield

 

Laburnum were hosting Heatherdale in a very important game for both sides. Laburnam after batting first posted 135 with Matt Henderson 35 only managing to bat for 35 overs. James Moye 4-38 for Heatherdale would pass Laburnam at 6-141 to record a victory and remain in finals calculations.

 

After a win the previous round Kerrimuir United took on the improving Vermont South who have been in good form over recent matches. Vermont South would only make 91 with Dylan Ellis 5-20 the star for United. In reply they would pass the total 4/93 with Ryan Hillias compiling a well made 59 not out. Kerrimuir after a slow start now elevate to third on the ladder.

 

In the match of the round and living up to it in every way, Blackburn North batting first would only make 129 Ben Davis 37 while with Nick Greenhalf 4-25 for the Nungers. Koonung Heights set about the chase of 129. Christenson would be the only real shining light with wickets regularly falling. Patrao the last out bowled by Luke Macleod with scores tied. Dean Burton 3/32 for the best bowler for the Bulldogs.

 

Glen Waverley Hawks 9-198cc (Luke Galle 65, Jarrod Greaves 43) would defeat the struggling Mulgrave Wheelers Hill 178 (C.Arnold 57, T.Balaam 53, L.Galle 4-41).

 

Doncaster hosting Eley Park saw an even contest early with Doncaster 5/108 with 5 overs remaining in its innings managing to score 5-175cc. Late hitting by Josh Waters 42 not out and Mark Albiston 42 defeated a disappointing Eley Park 140 Sam Noble 2/19 . Eley Park who have slumped to the bottom of the ladder making its finals chances extremely difficult.

BHRDCA PILES ON THE HEAT

U:16_Team_2
Box Hill Reporter Junior Cricket teams have recorded outstanding results over the Victorian Metropolitan Cricket Union Representative carnival held over the past two weeks with 5 of their 6 teams competing winning through to the finals stage.

 

Unfortunately with several sides coming home with a wet sail, last weeks heat wave intervened and all quarter and semi final games were cancelled leaving only top two finishers to fight out the Grand Finals.

 

The Carnival showcase event the Jim Beitzel U/16 turf competition saw Box Hill take on arch rivals the Eastern Cricket Assn. with both teams undefeated. Box Hill won the toss and elected to bat with the Mulgrave Reserve outfield running very fast. It was a slow but steady start and despite the loss of two early wickets the Box Hill batsmen rose to the challenge, the charge was led by skipper Lucas Grierson with a fighting 52 with great support from Matty Stewart 34. The final 15 overs saw Ben Joseph 44 and Nelson Lane 32* apply the blowtorch with some superb copybook running between the wickets to carry Box Hill through to a very respectable 6/209 after their 40 overs.

 

ECA began their inning with a real flourish before the lively bowling of Chris Rose 2/25 made some early inroads. With the breakthrough wickets began to fall at a steady pace helped by some excellent fielding backing the bowlers. James Box 2/16 and Jack Morrison 2/23 also claimed multiple scalps with ECA finally dismissed for 143 and 66 runs adrift. As coach Chris Box emphasised after the game, this was a reward for a team performance with every player going out with a plan and then executing it to perfection.

 

Individual awards were also presented to Lucas Grierson as Player of the Match, Nelson Lane as Player of the series and Sam Harte as Player of the U14 Allen Shield Series. Congratulations to these fine young cricketeers and to all the players, officials, Umpires, parents and supporters who made this the best VMCU Carnival in Box Hill history – a fantastic effort all round.
