Melville 3/169 def South Perth 168

Melville accomplished a strong victory against South Perth on Sunday at Tompkins Park. As both sides are positioned very tightly behind Midland-Guildford this fixture had massive ramifications for a place in the 50 Over Grand Final in two weeks.

However promising starts were thwarted by Melville's strong bowling attack. Amy Edgar had the sharpest figures with 2 for 23 off 6 overs. At the conclusion of the innings Melville bowled out South Perth in the final over for 168. In response Melville had little trouble with reaching the target as all batters involved reached double figures and losing just 3 wickets. Amy Edgar (34) and Western Fury all-rounder Mathilda Carmichael  (55 not out) were the highest contributors in the run chase. Melville sealed the victory in the 32nd over now sitting 1 point above South Perth in the Competition table which should make for an interesting final round next weekend.
