GOSNELLS have missed the 2016-17 Pre­mier Cricket fi­nals af­ter suf­fer­ing de­feat to Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley in Round 14 at Suther­lands Park on Sat­ur­day.

Need­ing 344 for vic­tory, Luis Reece (80) and Matt Leipold (65) were the only bats­men to show any sort of form as the side was bowled out for 254.

De­spite the re­sult, it has been an im­pres­sive sea­son for Gosnells, who play Wil­let­ton away in the fi­nal round on Sat­ur­day.

Af­ter los­ing Bran­don Ja­cobs for a first ball duck and Jonathon Crowe (3), Gosnells was reel­ing at 2-8.

Reece and Leipold com­bined for a 107-run fourth wicket part­ner­ship which gave the Hawks hope be­fore state spin­ner Liam O’Con­nor got the lat­ter’s wicket.

English im­port Reece fell to Nathan Rim­ming­ton and there was lit­tle else re­sis­tance ex­cept from David Thoma­son, who scored 35.
