Bayswater Morley 184 def by University 261 All Out at HIllcrest Park

University won the toss and chose to bat first against Bayswater Morley and were able to post 261 in 83 overs thanks to 51 from overseas import Ryan Patel and 75 from skipper Viv Paver. Baysie opening bowlers Jonty Wilde (3/39) and Ash Jeffery (3/63) were the pick of the bowlers as Jarrad Daniells and Callum O'Connor also chimed in with two wickets each. The Bayswater Morley chase didn't get off to a great start as bowlers Josh Dallimore (4/16) and Corey Rocchicciolli (3/54) ripped through the batting order, reducing Baysie 6/66 in quick time. Mitch Todd (62) and Ross Loiacono (60) struck up a partnership to get the Bears back in the hunt, but it wasn't to be as they were bowled out for 184.


Fremantle 9/230dec def by Gosnells at Stevens Reserve West

Gosnells secured an upset win against Fremantle at Stevens Reserve with former Port Boy Anthony Collova staring against his old team. Fremantle made 9/230 batting first with Captain Jake Carder (73) and Chris Davenport (60no) scoring the bulk of the runs as Chris Prescott took 5/61. In reply, Collova rode his luck, making 90 at the top of the order, before Matt Leipold stepped up and took Gosnells home with a quick fire 70 not out from just 67 balls, to see Gosnells home with 5 wickets to spare in the 83rd over.


Joondalup 111 and 3/105 def by Midland Guildford 205 All Out at Iluka Sports Complex

Midland Guildford continued their recent run of good form, securing an upset victory over Joondalup at Iluka Sports Complex. In a fast moving first day, Joondalup were bowled out for just 111, despite being 0-62 at one stage. Keaton Critchell did the damage for Midland Guildford, taking 4/40 as only Zak Birchall (39) and Garrick Morgan (31). Midland Guildford secured first innings points on day one, going past Joondalup's total 4 down, as Skipper Scott Borthwick top scored with 43 before they were bowled out for 205 on day 2. Joondalup played out 30 overs in the second innings to be 3/105 as the  match petered out to a first innings result for the team from Lilac Hill. 


Melville 274 All Out def Wanneroo 259 All Out at Tompkins Park

In a high scoring encounter, it was Melville who got the points against Wanneroo at home to continue the recent good from from the Storm. Batting first, Melville were bowled out for 274, thanks to a third century this season from opener Blake Reed. Reed finished with 112 and received ample support from veteran Drew Porter (73), with the Roos Kyle Millar being the leading bowler with 3/52. The Wanneroo chase slipped to 4/89 on day 2, before Anthony Del Borello (63) and Rob Richards (57) worked hard to bring the Roo's back into the game. However the Storm bowlers turned the screws at crucial times, with 5 bowlers taking wickets, and bowling the Roo's out for 259 to secure a tight 15 run win.



Perth 279 All Out def Claremont Nedlands 191 All Out at Fletcher Park

Perth's lower order and tail end did more than an adequate job with the bat after being reduced to 8/132 batting first against Claremont Nedlands at Fletcher Park. Josh Nicholas (63), Jack Baker (42) and Liam Guthrie (33) all made sizeable contributions to get the Demons to 279 as Daniel Turkich was yet again in the wickets with 5/72 from 90 overs. In reply Johnny Bushnell led for the Tigers with 77, but apart from Tim David's 26, no one else got past 12 as the Tigers were rolled for 191, with Nicholas, Van Galen and Baker all taking 3 wickets for the Demons.


Subiaco Floreat 6/237dec def Rockingham Mandurah 168 & 3/136 at Floreat Park

A strong bowling display from the Lions saw the Mariners be bundled out for 168 batting first at Floreat Park. Brandon Jacobs made 43 for Rockingham Mandurah but the star of the show was veteran Chris Hansberry who snared yet another five wicket haul. The Lions made quick work of the chase, as Jayden Goodwin, Cameron Green and Geremy Fatouros all made 50s, before a declaration allowed the Lions bowlers to have another crack for an outright result. In 37 overs the second time round, the Mariners managed to make 3/136 as Brandon Burt made 77 from just 69 balls. 


South Perth 6/300 def Mount Lawley 212 All Out at Richardson Park

4 half centuries in the South Perth innings set the solid platform for South Perth' 6/300 batting first at Richardson Park. Tim Hale (59), Darius D'Silva (88), Daniel Moore (69no) and Brooke Guest (51) all made sizeable contributions in a consistent batting effort. Left with a daunting total to chase, Mount Lawley lost veteran James Newnham early as well as Oliver Mouchemore and Dylan Sharman before the score went past 20. It was 5/45 when Andy Bottega was caught off Keaton Spencer-Wright and Mount Lawley were well and truly in the mire. Ethan Petta (62) and Liam Purdy (63) then added 95 for the 6th wicket, however it was never going to be enough as the Hawks succumbed for 212, with Nick Mitchell taking 3/64.


Willetton 261 def by Scarborough 3/262 at Burrendah Reserve

Blair Walsh (65) and Brennan Wilson (60) were the two mainstays of the Willetton innings as they batted first at Burrendah Park against the Gulls. The top order all made scores in the 20s, but it was those two that carried the bat for long enough to allow Willetton to post the extremely competitive total for 261 on Day 1.  However, it would turn out to be that the Gulls top order would consolidate on their starts more so than the Dragons on a good batting strip, with only Spoors scoring under 40 for the visitors. De Nobrega (65 not out) and Maiolo (77 not out) would add an unbeaten 133 for the 4th wicket to take the Gulls home comfortably at the home of the Dragons.
