Cowell hosted the Eastern Eyre Twenty20 Cricket Carnival on Saturday, with four teams from the region competing.

Cowell, Rudall and Port Neill participated, alongside an amalgamated team of Lock and Darke Peak cricketers named Boonderdoo.

Rudall looked the strongest in the first round, making a total of 192 with just one wicket lost.

Despite a first round loss to Boonderdoo, Cowell came back against Port Neill in the second round to secure their spot against Rudall in the final.

Rudall opened the batting in the final, and were unable to reach the heights of their first game, losing eight wickets for a total of 104.

Cowell conceded just two wickets in their innings, allowing them to comfortably chase Rudall’s total to claim a win on their home turf with overs to spare.

Final scores were Cowell 2/109 def Rudall 8/104.

Hank Burton of Rudall was awarded best batsman of the tournament for a total of 119 runs, most of which were scored in a single innings.

Judd Wykamp of Cowell took out the bowling award, taking nine wickets and conceding 40 runs over the day.

Cowell’s Zac Crabb claimed the fielding award for his four catches.

A special award was given to Ted Weiss of Rudall for bowling the most expensive over of the day, after conceding 21 runs through multiple sundries and boundaries.
