A SURPRISE assault from Air Force blasted
a shell-shocked Army to take out the 2010
Australian Services Cricket Association National
Championships in Canberra on November 3.
Defending champions Army batted first and
amassed 141 but were bowled out nine overs short of
their allocated 50.
Army looked like they would still get up when
they had the Air Force 8 for 96.
But batters Flg-Off Jimmy Lee and LAC Aaron
Goodwin took it to the Army bolwers to put on the
required 44 runs.

a scorcher in wet and windy Canberra.
Army captain Lt-Col James Brownlie said it
was disappointing from Army but it was "one of the
grander contests" in service cricket for many years.
"It really came down to a gutsy, fantastic effort by

amassing 255 runs while the sailors could only man-
Army versus Navy on November 2 was equally
one-sided with Army putting on 254 in their innings
and Navy responding with 113.
Despite the disappointment, Army had some out-
standing performances in both matches.
Sgt Marty Blackman slammed 124 runs against
Navy with Cpl Jimmy Wright adding 36 in his stand.
Bowling honours against Navy went to Sgt Ian
Roberts bagging 3-27.
Army's outstanding performer against Air Force
was Cpl Cory Baker with 5-23 in his allocated overs,
which looked like it might have done the trick for
"Cory put in a phenomenal performance with the
ball -- he almost got us home."
