A Grade One Day Competition - General Bye
B Grade One Day Competition - Round 9
South Perth 9/131 def Melville 9/130
Melville chose to bat first at Richardson Park, and could only muster 130 form their 40 overs as Gemma Cassidy (23) and Lauren Thompson (26) were the only batters to pass 20, while South Perth's Sinead Kirsten took 4/11 to be the best bowler. Kirsten (30) also helped South Perth get off to a steady start, and with the help of Poppy Stockwell (40no), they looked like they had control of the match. However, the Storm would keep taking regular wickets as Jess Row (3/17) and Tash Wylie (3/34) kept them in the game. In the end, Stockwell would control the chase enough to take South Perth home for a thrilling one wicket win.
Midland Guildford 101 All Out def Perth 70 All Out
Chloe Venning top scored with 13 as only 4 players made double figures in Midland Guildford's total of 101 all out, as Perth sent them into bat at Lilac Hill. 4 bowlers took wickets for the Demons, but none better than Sarah Hazell's 2/8 from 7 overs. Perth would have thought that they had a total that was gettable, and would have been confident at 1/36, but Sarah Fragomeni stepped up with the ball to take 3/9 with ample help from Rachel Vinkovich (2/7) and Anita Weir (2/5) to roll Perth for just 70 and secure the win in a low scoring encounter.
Subiaco Floreat 8/149 def Rockingham Mandurah 6/123
Shakira Parsons led with the ball for the Mariners as Subiaco Floreat were held to 8/149 from their 40 overs, with skipper Lizzy Alderson top scoring with 28 from 53 balls. Kayla Van Spall led the chase with the bat making 61 not out, but she could only really garner support from Brownyn Walker, who made 20, and it would prove to be a difficult chase against the Lions bowlers. The Mariners, despite their best efforts, would fall 26 runs short in the chase, as Cassie MacKenzie took 2/11.
Youth League One Day Competition - Round 5
Melville 7/131 def Midland Guildford 130 All Out
Morgan Pires top scored with 35 in Midland Guildford's total 130 after they were sent in to bat first by Melville at Tompkins Park. Georgia Blackbeard (2/10) and Josephine Mickel (2/6) were the pick of the bowlers for the Storm. Blackbeard also stood up with the bat in the chase, making 38, and with the help of Jaeda Ritchie (35) the Storm were able to chase down the total with an over left and 3 wickets in hand.
Rockingham Mandurah 62 All Out def by South Perth 6/210
Monica Rallabhandi continued her good form this season, making 80 with the bat, and receiving ample support from Chloe Saxton (31) and Loren Russo (31) as South Perth made 6/210 batting first at Lark Hill. The Mariners chase got off to a good start in reply, adding 26 for the first wicket, but from there, the South Perth bowling line up simply dominated proceedings, taking 10 wickets for 36 runs to bowl Rockingham Mandurah out for 62. 4 South Perth bowlers took two wickets, as Ella Dodgson took 2/3.
Wanneroo 49 All Out tied with Subiaco Floreat 49 All Out
Wanneroo and Subiaco Floreat played out an exciting tie at Kingsway over the weekend in a match dominated by the ball. Wanneroo were bowled out for 49 when they chose to bat first, as Holly Appleby took 4/10 with the ball for the Lions. In reply Josie Beckett displayed great skill in taking 5/11 as Subiaco Floreat fell to 6/6. 6/6 became 7/24 and 8/37 and 9/40, before the final two were able to score 9 runs to bring scores level, but in dramatic fashion Taylor was given out LBW off Jesani to result in a tie!
