A Grade One Day Competition - Round 4
South Perth 89 All Out def by Midland Guildford 135 All Out
Midland Guildford won a low scoring encounter batting first at Ernest Johnson Oval. The team from Lilac Hill could only muster 135 from 42.2 overs, with 6 players making double figures, but none more than Courtney Venning's 19. South Perth skipper Emily Hessell was the pick of the bowlers taking 3/31 from 5.5 overs. Hessell would also go on to top score in the South Perth innings, making 12, but is was disappointing reading as South Perth were bundled out for just 89, as Sheldyn Cooper returned the fine figures of 3/15 from 8 overs.
Melville 1/138 def Subiaco Floreat 7/137
On a warm day at Tompkins Park, Melville won the toss and sent Subiaco Floreat into bat first, restricting them to 7/137 from their 50 overs. Olivia Purnell top scored at the top of the order with 34, while Jacquline Naidoo made 20 batting at 8 as no one else could really get going against Melville's disciplined bowling attack. Despite losing Rebecca West with scoring, Meg Thompson and Gorgia Platten added 138 together for the second wicket to take Melville comfortably home, and in the process both making 61 not out!
B Grade One Day Competition - Round 4
Melville 6/168 def South Perth 58 All Out
59 from Jess Row formed the back bone of Melville's 6/168 as they batted first at Tompkins Park. Lara Rodin-Zimdahl also added 33 for the Storm, as Tyler Jones took 2/33 opening the bowling for South Perth. Jones would also top score with 17 in the South Perth reply, but it was unfortunately a horror story for the team from Richardson Park, slipping early to 2/2, then 6/38 before being bundled out for 58. Tash Wyile starred with 3/7 from 4 overs, while Caroline Shepherd also took 3/11 from 5 overs.
Perth 85 All Out def by Midland Guildford 8/184
Perth inserted Midland Guildford into bat first at Fletcher Park, and 6 batters made between 14 and 32 for Midland Guildford, with no one making more than Sarah Fragomeni's 32 in Midland Guildford's total of 8/184 off 40 overs. 3 Perth bowlers took two wickets each in an even bowling display for the Demons. The Demons chase did not go to plan however, as only Lucy Bastin (35) made more than 10, as the Midland Guildford bowlers ran rampant. Perth would be bowled out for 85, with Elenie White taking 3/12 from 8 overs.
Rockingham Mandurah 1/59 def Subiaco Floreat 57 All Out
The Mariners were on fire from the get go at Lark Hill, as Courtney Holt (3/5) and Kayla Van Spall (3/21) did serious damage with the ball to rout Subiaco Floreat for just 57 in 30.4 overs. Only Olivia Bunter made more than 10 for the Lions, top scoring with 12. Van Spall made seriously light work of the chase, scoring 42 from 47 balls, before being bowled by Bunter with the score on 54, right before Rockingham Mandurah secured a 9 wicket win in just the 11th over.
Youth League One Day Competition - Round 1
Melville 4/228 def Wanneroo 84
Melville recorded a sizeable victory against Wanneroo in both Club's first Youth League 40 over match. Wanneroo sent Melville into bat first, and they compiled 4/228 from 40 overs thanks to 79 from Jaeda Ritchie and 43 from just 41 balls from Chloe Ainsworth. Wanneroo Captain Shayna Jesani took 1/7 from 3 overs to be the pick of the bowlers. Jesani would then top score with the bat in the Wanneroo chase, making 13, but it would be difficult going for Wanneroo, who would be bowled out for 84 in 26 overs, as Melville's McGrath starred taking 2/11 from 4 overs.
Rockingham Mandurah 9/169 def by Midland Guildford 8/172
The Mariners chose to bat first at Lark Hill and made 9/169 from their 40 overs thanks to 58 from Ruby Clarke and 23 from Siena Styles, as Sophie Brown took 4/14 from 6 overs for Midland Guildford. Regular wickets would fall in the Midland Guildford chase as they fell to 4/75 and then 8/134 in the face of some good Rockingham Mandurah bowling. However Gemma Evans would carry Midland Guildford home with a superb unbeaten 79 from 111 balls to ensure her team would win by 2 wickets with 4 overs in hand.
South Perth 2/70 def Subiaco Floreat 69 All Out
Subiaco Floreat won the toss and elected to bat first, a decision that backfired when they were bowled out for just 69. Drew Epis top scored for the Lions with 13, but no one else made double figures as South Perth's Ella Dodgson took 4/4 from 4 overs! Sienna Ryan would control the chase for South Perth, making 29 not out from 33 balls, to ensure that South Perth got home by 8 wickets with 30 overs to spare.
