Halfway price | River herald
The Moama Bowling Club’s summer sports awards have entered the end of the commercial season, and with the second half of the competition about to begin, there are certain qualifying criteria players must meet.
In all three summer sports awards – tennis, cricket and bocce – players will need to have played at least 60 percent of the matches to qualify for the awards.
Simply put, if the season is 10 rounds, they will need to have played in six of those matches to be eligible for the prize.
With the pétanque competition, because the Bendigo Premier League competition is four rounds longer than its Campaspe division counterpart, only the first 14 rounds of Bendigo Premier League will count in the final evaluation.
A Moama Bowling Club Cricketer of the Year, Player of the Year and Tennis Players of the Year each take with them $ 1,000 in prizes – awarded at the end of the round-trip season.
Every Wednesday in the pages of River herald, and for subscribers to the digital version of our newspaper, there is a ranking update in the price.
The $ 1,000 Cricket Prize combines both the men’s and women’s competitions of the Goulburn Murray Cricket Association.
Players from the nine Category A men’s competition teams and the five women’s teams are eligible for the same prize pool.
Only players from Echuca, BLU and Leitchville-Gunbower will be eligible for the Women’s Cricketer of the Year award, with points awarded for runs, wickets, catches and saves.
Points are awarded on the following basis: one point for a race, five points for a catch or stump and 10 points for a wicket.
Male players from Echuca, Moama, Rochester, Leitchville-Gunbower, LBU, Nondies Cohuna, Kyabram Fire Brigade, Echuca South and Cooma all compete for the prize.
The winner of the Cricketer of the Year will pocket $ 500, the second winner $ 250, the third $ 125 and the fourth $ 75, thanks to main sponsor Moama Bowling Club.
The finals will not count for the prize. The competition will end at the end of the round-trip season.
The Bowler of the Year award will be split across two Division 1 Saturday competitions, as Moama will field teams this year in the Bendigo Campaspe Goldfields Premier League and also in the Campaspe section of the new bowling area.
The season-leading captain of both competitions will be awarded the lion’s share of the $ 1,000, which I’m sure they will make available to the valued members of their four-member teams.
Editor-in-chief Rohan Aldous and sports journalist Josh Huntly will present the Bowler of the Year award based on a percentage measured on the shots for and shots against for the round-trip season.
As with the Cricketer of the Year award, the finals will not count as the Cricketer of the Year. The winner of the category, which includes Echuca, Moama, Rochester, Tongala, Mathoura, Deniliquin and Rich River, will pocket $ 500, with the runner-up taking home $ 250, the third $ 125 and the fourth $ 75.
As for the tennis competition, there will also be players from two associations competing for the prize – the Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis Association and the Campaspe Tennis Association.
The $ 1,000 prize will be split in two: $ 500 for the male winner and $ 500 for the female recipient.
Again, the reward will be measured on a percentage basis.
It will take into account the games won and lost, providing us with the percentage that will allow us to measure the best players of the season.
For women and men, the distribution of the prizes will be $ 300 for the winner, $ 125 for the second and $ 75 for the third.
Only home and away matches will count for the prize.
