Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - SPORT -

MT Law­ley got its WA Premier Cricket sea­son back on track in round 9, snap­ping a five-game los­ing streak with a solid 16-run win over Mid­land-Guild­ford at Breck­ler Park.

En­ter­ing the crease first, the Hawks fought their way to 3-78 be­fore Tristan Hob­ley and Ethan Petta put a stamp on the in­nings, smash­ing out a 63-run part­ner­ship.

As Hob­ley de­parted at 4141, the Hawks strug­gled for mo­men­tum through­out the rest of their in­nings.

Petta played an an­chor­ing role for the home side, help­ing the Hawks to 213 and fin­ish­ing with an un­beaten 80, while Do­minic Si­b­ley took 339 for the visi­tors.

Mid­land-Guild­ford then came to the crease with the right at­ti­tude, with Si­b­ley belt­ing out two part­ner­ships worth 42 and 74 runs with Jor­dan Mast and Keaton Critchell re­spec­tively.

How­ever, at 3-154 fol­low­ing Critchell’s dis­missal, Mid­land-Guild­ford ca­pit­u­lated, los­ing eight wick­ets – in­clud­ing Critchell’s – in the space of 43 runs to hand the win to the Hawks.

Si­b­ley was the only light for Mid­land-Guild­ford, tak­ing three wick­ets and scor­ing 81 runs.

Mid­land-Guild­ford host Melville at Lilac Hill this Satur­day.
