WITH batsmen CPL Adam Bosworth
and LAC Kaleb Tymko showing
some fine form for the Australian
Services Cricket Association (ASCA)
at a Twenty20 tournament in August,
Air Force has reason for confidence
going into the triservice competition in
Canberra in November.
"I think the Air Force have a hot
chilli chance of winning," CPL
Air Force was knocked out by
eventual winner Pakistan Joint
Services in the semi-finals of the
International Defence Cricket
Challenge in Canberra last November,
so is not too far off the pace.
The ASCA team, which played in
Brisbane for the International Cricket
Council Asia Pacific Rising Stars
Trophy from August 12-17, includ-
ed three RAAFies -- FLTLT Jarrod
Moxey, CPL Bosworth and LAC
Tymko. CPL Ricky Mace and LAC
Kevin Chapman were unavailable.
FLTLT Moxey said ASCA acquit-
ted itself well despite being up against
some very good opposition.
"Good batting towards the last half
of the tournament from Boz (CPL
Bosworth), Timmy (LAC Tymko) and
the guys was nearly enough to get us
across the line, which shows ASCA
wasn't outclassed," FLTLT Moxey
The other teams were Papua New
Guinea (PNG), which is ranked 19th in
the world and used the tournament as
a warm-up for its World Cup Qualifier
in Dubai later this year, the Australian
indigenous development squad and a
team from the East Asia/Pacific region,
which consisted of players from
Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa, PNG and Japan.
ASCA fell only 38 runs short
against eventual winner PNG after
chasing a big total.
Then it came out blazing against
the highly regarded Australian
Indigenous Team, first restricting the
opposition to only 104 runs from the
20 overs, then making easy work of
the run chase.
Unfortunately, the result was
reversed against the same team in the
play-off for third spot.
The Australian Indigenous Team
In reply, ASCA lost two quick
wickets before CPL Bosworth and
captain SGT Ian Roberts came togeth-
er and made a 64-run stand.
When CPL Bosworth fell for 43,
LAC Tymko belted 25 from 11 balls,
which left ASCA needing 24 runs in
24 balls to win.
Unfortunately, ASCA lost its final
seven wickets for only 11 runs to lose
CPL Bosworth, who also scored a
quickfire 25 from 12 balls in another
game and ended the competition with
five wickets, came third in the player
of the tournament rankings.
That was particularly pleasing for
him after both ankle and elbow surgery
The men's national triservice com-
petition will be held in Canberra from
For the first time it is hoped a
women's competition will be run from
Representative combined services
(male and female) matches will be

SQNLDR Ken Gilbert held on to win the South Australian
combined services golf championship at Clare Golf Club
in the Clare Valley on September 9 and 10.
He scored 81 in his first 18 holes to take a three-stroke
lead into day two.
"The rough was very long and if you didn't hit the
fairway off the tee, it wasn't hard to lose your ball,"
SQNLDR Gilbert said.
Not being able to find the fairway was nearly
SQNLDR Gilbert's downfall during the second round,
which almost resulted in him squandering his overnight
lead.But he managed to finish with an 88 to secure the
trophy by two shots.
This was the eighth year SQNLDR Gilbert, who plays
off a handicap of seven, had contested the competition.
He has won other prizes in previous years, including
Air Force champion, but this was his first overall victory.
Winner of the handicap trophy was WOFF Steve
Shuck who will now represent South Australia at
the Defence national championships in Canberra in
Rough day but it's
the trophy at last
