Avon Valley Gazette - - SPORT -

MID­LAND Guild­ford en­joyed a solid four- wicket win over Perth in a rainaf­fected Pre­mier League match last Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Cap­tain Chris­ti­aan Moir sent Perth in to bat, which turned out to be a pos­i­tive de­ci­sion as his bowlers set the pace for the day.

Al­though the re­sis­tance was strong from the Perth bats­men, with Dain More­ton scor­ing a half- cen­tury and Jake Snad­den chim­ing in with 34, Jack Baker did the dam­age with the ball for the home side, tak­ing a five- wicket haul to set up the run chase.

Jor­dan Mast and James Kir­wan did the rest for Mid­land Guild­ford, as they scored 62 and 38 re­spec­tively to notch a first- round win for the club.

Mid­land Guild­ford 6- 163 ( Mast 62, Kir­wan 38, Guthrie 2- 21) de­feated Perth 9- 159 ( cc) ( More­ton 52, Snad­den 34, Baker 5- 32), Li­lac Hill.
