Joon­dalup bat­ting ex­posed


Joondalup Weekender - - Sport -

JOON­DALUP faces a tough task against sec­ond-placed Su­bi­aco Floreat this week­end as it looks to re­cover from a dis­ap­point­ing start to the year in WA Pre­mier Cricket.

The 11th-placed side faces the Lions in a one-day clash at Floreat Park on Satur­day.

Joon­dalup lost to Wil­let­ton by seven wick­ets at Bur­ren­dah last week­end in its first game back af­ter the Christ­mas break.

Opener Gar­rick Mor­gan top scored with 48 as the Cen­tu­ri­ons fell for 142 in the 44th over.

A mid­dle-or­der col­lapse had the side lose 5-34 but a rally from the tail, led by Si­mon Branston’s 33, saved the side from com­plete dis­as­ter.

The Drag­ons had strong ef­forts from Will Rhodes (3-14) and WA quick Si­mon Mackin (3-31).

The hosts eas­ily chased down the score in the 26th over aided by 56 from Stu­art Biss.

Joon­dalup’s Harry Larmett, Josh An­der­son and Jake Zsilin­szky took a wicket each.
