Canning Times - - SPORT -

TOP of the lad­der side Ap­ple­cross had a solid win against a near full strength Bent­ley A Grade side this week­end.

Ap­ple­cross were chas­ing a com­pet­i­tive score of 199 and al­though they bat­ted cau­tiously, chased down the score with the loss of only five wick­ets,

Jar­rod Aspinall made 93 off 191 de­liv­er­ies, in­clud­ing seven fours, and Rob­bie Mont­gomery made 47 off 80 de­liv­er­ies.

The best of the Bent­ley bowlers were Bren­dan Daye and Adam Palumbo with three and two wicket re­spec­tively.

In the next round, Bent­ley (sev­enth) re­turn to Wy­ong Re­serve to play Swan Val­ley (sixth) in a game that is cru­cial to both clubs.

Bent­ley’s sec­ond side won its first game for the sea­son with an out­stand­ing win at home against Swan Ath­letic Caver­sham, dis­miss­ing them for only 139 chas­ing Bent­ley's score of 193.

Bent­leys third and fourth teams had bad losses mak­ing 153 and 63 in their re­spec­tive games with only Chris Pritchard mak­ing a rea­son­able score of 33, which should see him be­ing pro­moted up the grades this week­end.

Bent­ley’s One Day side failed to cap­i­talise on solid starts from top or­der bats­men, fall­ing short of the run chase set by Su­bi­aco Marist of 6-181 mak­ing 176. The loss sees Bent­ley drop to third place on the lad­der ahead of its game against Western Sub­urbs this week­end.
