Bayswater Morley 7/192 def South Perth 6/189 at HIllcrest Park

Bayswater Morley won the toss and inserted South Perth in to bat first at Hillcrest, with South Perth making 6/189 from their 50 overs as Fraser Thompson (57) and Tim Hale (40) top scored for the visitors. Bears Spin Twins Mitch Todd (2/26) and Callum O'Connor (3/43) were the pick of the bowlers. Stand in Captain Lane Berry got things moving at the top of the order with 57, however regular wickets kept falling as Bayswater Morley stumbled to 7/169 in the chase. Ross Loiacono stepped up in a chase yet again, knocking up 36 not out in the lower order to taking the Bears home with 3 wickets in hand and just 7 balls to spare. 

Gosnells 146 All Out def by Claremont Nedlands 147 All Out at Sutherlands Park 

Claremont Nedlands won a thriller at Sutherlands Park on the weekend by the tightest of margins. Gosnells sent the Tigers in to bat first, and quickly reduced them to 5/48, and 6/85 before Jim Allenby rescued things with 45 to take the Tigers to 147 in 47 overs. 3 bowlers for the Hawks took 2 wickets in a fine bowling display, with Fraser Hay's 2/14 from 6.5 overs being the best. The Gosnells chase suffered similar wobbles, as Mac Hanlin (4/18) proved decisive with the ball, as the Hawks quickly fell to 6/60. Blake McGann tried his best to rescue things with 38, and took the Hawks to 8/146 and on the brink, but miraculously the Tigers were able to take 2 wickets on the same score and record a 1 run win from the jaws of defeat.

Midland Guildford 210 def Perth 8/209 at Lilac Hill 1

54 from Austin Thomas and 52 from Keaton Critchell set the platform for Midland Guildford's 210 batting first at Lilac Hill. The Demons opening bowlers, Josh Nicholas (3/29) and Liam Guthrie (2/30) continued their fine form with the ball, and kept Midland Guildford to arguable a below par total at Lilac. The Midland bowlers struck early and consistently with wickets, to see the Demons fall to 2/28, 4/87 and 6/167 with the game right in the balance. English import Scott Borthwick (3/54) was doing his best to keep the game alive, and it was up to the Demons 8 down with 15 to get, and 9 off the last over to win. However the Demons could only get 7, resulting in a amazing 1 run win for Midland Guildford.

Mount Lawley 4/223 def by Fremantle 3/325 at Breckler Park

It was a run fest at Breckler Park, as Fremantle whacked the ball to all corners in making 3/325 batting first. Captain Jake Carder made 107 at the top of the order, but the star of the show was Ed Byrom, who compiled 110 from just 60 balls at 4. Dylan Sharman (79) and Ethan Petta (54no) made fifties in the chase for the Hawks, but they were always behind the run rate in the chase, falling 102 runs short in what was not a great day for bowlers at Breckler Park .

Rockingham Mandurah 4/209 def Melville 9/206 at Lark Hill

Rockingham Mandurah recorded an impressive victory in front of their home crowd at Lark Hill, cutting the momentum that Melville had been building over the past few rounds. Brad Turner's 46 and Sean Terry's 42 were the mainstays of Melville's 9/206 batting first, as Ronan Hogarth turned in the figures of 4/53 from 10 overs. That total would never be enough for the Storm to defend as Tom Lammonby (84no) and Aaron Burrage (71) took control of the chase with 147 run stand to ensure that the Mariners would get home with 6 wickets in hand an 19 balls to spare.

Scarborough 7/259 def Subiaco Floreat 255 All Out at Abbett Park

Ben Tredget was the main stay of Subiaco Floreat's innings with 79 as Subiaco Floreat chose to bat first at Abbett Park. David Lane (45) and Chris Hansberry (42) made lower order contributions for the Lions, as Lachlan Tyler took 3/60 to keep the Lions in check on a batting friendly surface. At 6/108 in the chase things were looking increasingly difficult for the Gulls as Michael Hart (2/37) continued his fine season, but Kye Stevens (67no) and Brett Jarvis-Spinks (72) added 120 for the 7th wicket, and in the end enough to see the Gulls home in a close encounter.

University 4/278 def Joondalup 234 All Out at James Oval

It was the Chris Sabburg show yet again at James Oval as Sabburg flexed his muscles at the top of the order. In a record partnership of 255 for the second wicket, Sabburg made 140 along with Ryan Patel, who made 115, as University racked up 4/278 batting first on a good batting wicket. Joe Inglis snared 3 of the 4 wickets to fall, taking 3/61 from his 10 overs. Stand in Captain Jake Zsilinszky top scored in the chase with 65, as all of the middle order made starts, including 47 from Blair Oakley, but the target would prove to be insurmountable for Joondalup, as they were bowled out for 234 in the 47th over. 

Wanneroo 8/211 def Willetton 109 All Out at Kingsway

The Roos batted first at home, and made 8/211 as 7 of the top 8 made between between 15 and 33, without any batsman making more than Anthony Del Borello's 35 at the top of the order. Nic Geisler was the star with the bowl for the Dragons, taking 3/38 from his 10 overs. The Dragons chase was a fizzer in reply, with only Wornes (36) making a solid contribution as the Dragons were rolled for just 109. Kyle MIllar spun a web with the ball, taking 3/33.
