Round 10 - Saturday 11th January 2020 - One Day Match

First Grade Review


One Day Cricket continued on Saturday 11th January for WA Premier Cricket, as Clubs scrambled to try to qualify for the upcoming One Day League Semi Finals. 


Claremont Nedlands 7/190 def Mount Lawley 8/189 at Cresswell Park

Corey Evans top scored at the top of the Mount Lawley batting order with 52, but only Andy Bottega (29) and Liam Purdy (25no) offered any real assistance as the Hawks could only muster 8/189, as Dan Turkich continued his fine season with the ball, snaring 2/22 from 10 overs. Mohammed Ijaz opened the bowling for the Hawks with his wily left arm spinners, and rocked the Tigers early, reducing them to 3/49. However Johnny Bushnell (55) and Haydan Morton (42) came to the fore in the middle order to take the Tigers home with 3 wickets in hand. 


Fremantle 204 All Out def by Wanneroo 5/294 at Stevens Reserve West

A 234 run partnership between Rob Richards (96) and Kelvin Smith (151) formed the back bone of Wanneroo's massive total of 5/294 at Stevens Reserve. It was nearly consecutive hundred for Richards, as Fremantle's Josh Chojnowski was the pick of the bowlers taking 3/62 off 10 overs. Kaiden Cookson led the chase for the Port Boys, compiling 60, while Ed Byrom made 53, but with the high asking rate, wickets continued to fall at a fast rate. Fremantle would be bowled out for 204 in the end ad Deon Billington took 4/46.


Gosnells 7243 def by Scarborough 6/244 at Sutherlands Park 1

77 from Matt Leipold and 52 from Luke McNamee headlined the Gosnells total of 7/243 batting first at Sutherlands Park on the weekend. Leipold's innings took only 66 balls and included 10 fours and 1 six, as it provided the impetus for the Hawks to post a competitive total. Lachie Tyler was the best bowler for the Gulls, taking 2/58. The Gulls chase was quickly in a hole as soon as it started, as Leipold and Chris Prescott took early wickets to see the Gulls slide to 3/40, and then 5/158 when Lochie Hardy was dismissed for 78. However Sam Moylan (60no) stood up in the middle order and with the help of Riccardo de Nobrega (44) carried Scarborough home with 13 balls to spare.


Midland Guildford 229 All Out def by Melville 3/272 at Lilac Hill 1

The Storm came out winners in the run fest at Lilac Hill 1 on the weekend, but not without a fright. Batting first, the Storm piled on 3/272 as Blake Reed (115no) made a century for the second weekend in succession, while Tom Cullen also made a breakthrough century. Together, the two added 260 for the first wicket as the Midland Guildford bowlers had no solutions.  Faced with a daunting chase, Midland slipped to 6/1128 with the fall of O'Keefe, however Austin Thomas had other ideas, whacking his way to 104 from just 71 balls and to keep Midland in the hunt. But veteran Tom Kerr-Sheppard had other ideas, taking 4/31 to ensure that Midland would be bowled out for 229, resulting in a 43 run win for the Storm. 


Rockingham Mandurah 142 All Out def by Joondalup 4/143 at Lark Hill

56 from Brandon Burt was the only highlight of the Rockingham Mandurah innings as they were rolled for just 142 at their home ground of Lark Hill. Joe Inglis returned the impressive bowling figures of 5/21 from 7 overs, in what was a determined bowling display from the Centurions. The chase got off to a horrendous start however, sliding to 2/18, 3/36 and 4/40 as Adam France was unstoppable, taking all 4 wickets. Jaron Morgan had other ideas though, striking the ball cleanly and leading from the front. He would make an unbeaten 105 from just 84 balls, as Joondalup were able to secure a big win as a result by 6 wickets, with 128 balls to spare.


South Perth 225 All Out def by Subiaco Floreat 4/263 at Richardson Park 1

Subiaco Floreat won the toss and elected to bat first at Richardson Park, taking full toll on the South Perth bowlers as they made 4/263 from their 50 overs. Chief architect of this total was Tim Monteleone, who constructed a fine 130no from 141 balls, and received ample support from Aaron Lilly who made 65.  Liam Dallimore was the best of the bowlers with a respectable 2/35. Tim Hale (57) and Brooke Guest (116) for the South Perth chase off to a good start, adding 109 for the second wicket, but no other batsman would make more than 11 from here on in, as Guest was yet again required to play a lone hand. An even bowling display with wickets shared would see the Lions run out comfortable 38 run winners.


University 5/139 def Perth 137 All Out at James Oval

63 from Captain Sean Roberts was arguably the only positive from the Demons innings as University's bowlers restricted Perth to just 137 batting first at James Oval Bailey Richards was the pick of the bowlers, taking 5/23, while Ryan Patel took 2/6 as well. University's chase quickly slipped to 3/39 in reply as Josh Nicholas (2/17) and Ben Mike (2/45) did their best to keep the Demons in the hunt, but it would be Viv Paver with virtually a run a ball 64 not out what would take University home with 5 wickets to spare. 


Willetton 187 All Out def by Bayswater Morley 6/190 at Burrendah Reserve

Willetton for a second consecutive week were bowled out for under 200 at home, as the Bayswater Morley bowlers suffocated the Dragons batting line up. Captain Kallen Bond made 40 at the top, as Shanye Wornes made 32 in the middle order, but there wasn't much support elsewhere. Ross Loiacono (3/34) and Jonty Wilde (3/30) were the pick of the Bears bowlers. The Bears chase didn't get off to a promising start as Smith fell for a duck, but Ryleigh Cameron (53) and Loiacono (45no) did enough to see the Bears home by 4 wickets with 17 balls to spare.
