After a controversial finish to a final of the Living Homes Cricket T20 Cup involving the Loxton Club yesterday the matter is in the hands of the SA Cricket Association.
The competition involves worthwhile prize money and the opportunity to play on the Adelaide Oval.
Two games were played on Sunday at Langhorne Creek and firstly Loxton comfortably defeated Monarto in a semi final.
Loxton then met Langhorne Creek in the final.
Loxton president Mark Pontt explained ‘ Loxton scored just over 100, 106 I think, and after six balls of the final over we were one run in front. But for some reason the umpires erred and allowed a seventh ball with Langhorne Creek managing to tie the scores and force the game into a super over. I can’t understand why the scorers did not alert the umpires of the over having been completed. Unfortunately we did not provide a scorer’.
Langhorne Creek won the super over and will now advance unless SACA rules otherwise on the dispute.
Outstandng for Loxton on the day were Josh Deren with the bat and with the ball Mike Gutsche and Josh Norman.
