Lewis holds it to­gether

Eastern Reporter - - Sports -

JOON­DALUP ap­pear to be in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion after a solid first day with bat and ball, keep­ing Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley to 172 on Satur­day at Iluka Sports Com­plex 1.

Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley were in trou­ble early after win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat, los­ing three wick­ets for just 17 runs.

How­ever, Jake Lewis ar­rived at the crease at num­ber 3 and set about try­ing to steady the in­nings.

Al­though wick­ets fell with alarm­ing reg­u­lar­ity, Lewis fought his way to 91 from 197 as the Bears scram­bled to 172, los­ing their fi­nal four wick­ets for a measly 20 runs.

Joon­dalup be­gan its in­nings full of con­fi­dence through Gar­rick Mor­gan and An­drew South, after bowl­ing the Bears out in just 60 overs.

After Mor­gan was dis­missed for 6, South and Clin­ton Hinch­liffe pushed hard for the re­main­der of the day, with the home side fin­ish­ing in the en­vi­able po­si­tion of 1-58.

Joon­dalup will con­tinue its run chase on day 2, on Satur­day.

Mor­ley Ea­gles’ Ash­leigh Gib­bon, Amy Hunt, Jor­dan Jef­feries, Holly Touchell, Sam Bet­tles and Madi­son O’Dwyer.
