Rudall's under 16 cricketers have continued to prove themselves as a strong cohort, again taking out the under 16 six-a-side carnival.

Darke Peak hosted their annual carnival on Sunday, with five teams from across the Eastern Eyre Cricket Association taking part in the event.

Despite the reduced number of teams and spectators this year the carnival was played in good spirit and in fine conditions.

The grand final was played between Cleve and Rudall with Rudall running out carnival winners for 2019.

The win puts Rudall on a winning streak of four years in a row.

The trophy winners were hotly contested with a number of count backs.

The batting trophy was won by Regan Taheny of Cleve with 150 runs

The bowling award went to Daniel Bammann from the wild card team, taking three wickets for 20 runs.

Rudall's Bailey Matters won the fielding on two fielding votes.

Oakley Price of Rudall was awarded the best all-rounder for his work throughout the day.

He managed a run out, catch, 42 runs and bowling figures of 2/36.

The Darke Peak Sporting Complex thanked the carnival sponsors Cleve Rural Traders, Cleve Hotel Motel, Sportspower Port Lincoln, Pringles Crouch, Elders Insurance, Darke Peak Hotel, Ramsey Brothers, Cleve Butcher Shop, SACA and the Eyre Peninsula Tribune for their ongoing support.
