Cricket competition ends in hiccup for champions
Cricket teams from gas producers Santos and Cooper Energy faced off this week in a contest for the ages as part of the 2021 PESA SA/NT HICCUP Cricket Competition.
The teams were made up of engineers from the respective companies. Cooper Energy, as the winners of the previous year had a lot to live up to against Santos’ team, which had won the previous four years’ contests before that. In the end, however, Santos won out for the fifth time in six years, receiving the Terry Watts Trophy, named after the initiator of the tournament.
There was no bad blood between the finalists however, with everyone gathering together to have fun.
The PESA SA/NT HICCUP Cricket Competition is a tradition that has taken place every year for the past 40 years, with matches held on Fridays in January and February in Adelaide’s South Parklands.
After the match, the two teams joined with attendees for a well-earned barbecue, with players’ partners and children in tow.
The event will proceed again next year, with Santos helping to organise as this year’s winning team. Congratulations to both participants.Explore
