Comment News (Armadale) - - Sport -

AR­MADALE Cricket Club’s first grade side eas­ily ac­counted for East Fre­man­tle in their South Metropoli­tan Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion clash at Pre­ston Point.

Chas­ing 210 for vic­tory, East Fre­man­tle re­sumed at 4-32 and slipped into a deeper hole as Mark Rice (3-37) and Damian Car­roll (2-16) helped re­duce them to 7-81.

A strong per­for­mance from the tail end saved their blushes slightly, but the hosts still fin­ished all out for 136 as Ar­madale claimed vic­tory, be­fore Jake Forsyth (49 not out) and Ry­lan Arms (42) helped them to a sec­ond in­nings to­tal of 5109.

The third grade side suf­fered a heavy de­feat against their East Fre­man­tle coun­ter­parts, who made 5-269 last week.

Ar­madale could man­age only 91, with David Jar­dine the best of the bats­men with 26.

East Freo fin­ished the sec­ond in­nings on 6120, while Ains­ley Noronha (3-44) was Ar­madale’s best bowler.

The sixth grade team also suf­fered a crush­ing out­right loss against Maddington after mak­ing only 91 last week.

Maddington re­sumed the day three wick­ets down with a small lead but worked their way up to 9-210 be­fore dec­la­ra­tion, de­spite Antony Fedele’s 5-68.

In the sec­ond dig Ar­madale got off to a bright start thanks to Ja­son Mor­ris (25), only for a huge col­lapse to see them crum­ble from 0-37 to all out for 77.

Ar­madale’s One A side suf­fered their first loss of the sea­son against Thorn­lie, who opted to bat first.

Asim Mehmood (3-32) was on fire early as Thorn­lie dropped to 3-49, but they re­grouped to reach a solid 8-206.

In re­ply, Ar­madale fell to 3-29 early be­fore Waqas Khan (47) and Asim Mehmood (32) got them back on track, but their de­par­tures left the side wob­bling at 5-116.

Rae­bern D’Sylva (24) and Ash Star­ling (23) bat­ted strongly to res­cue hope, but a lower or­der col­lapse sealed their fate as the fin­ished all out for 168.
