The first Knockout fixture of the season was played on Friday 6th February on Wirreanda Oval with Reynella East College being hosted in a Year 10 Twenty/20 game.
 
 
The toss was won by Reynella East who elected to bowl first. Mohit Khanna and Jake Moulder opened the batting but were soon behind the clock as they had difficulty hitting the ball through the tight field. However Connor Lock was able to increase the scoring rate by making 23 off 24 balls before being caught. The middle order did not contribute in any significant way and it was left to Ryan Parry to swing lustily for a quick-fire 14 at the end of the innings before it closed at 9/74 after 20 overs.
 
Unfortunately Reynella East had no difficulty in chasing down the total and finished with 7/101 at the end of their allotted overs. There were several highlights in the field that are worth mentioning. Josh Spall took a catch while wicket keeping, then stepped up to bowl four overs and finished with outstanding figures of 4/15. Connor Lock took one wicket while bowling and after taking over keeping duties took two very high catches and threw down the stumps at the bowler’s end to run out a batsman. Andrew Cowie-Taylor was energetic in the field and took two good catches, while Jake Moulder held on to a very fast pull shot at square leg.
 
A special mention must go to Tahlia McGrath who umpired a good deal of the game and plays for Southern Districts and the South Australian Scorpions. Richard Hore also did a short stint umpiring the latter stages of the game.
