LO­CO­MO­TIVES DOM­I­NANT IN WIN OVER GOL­DRUSH

An un­beaten 89 from Golden City No. 3 Mark Bull­pitt got his side over the line in last week­end’s Kal­go­or­lie-Boulder Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion match against Hiber­ni­ans.

Golden City lost only two wick­ets as they chased down the 215 set for vic­tory with two overs left to spare.

Open­ers Brett Nel­son (25) and Nathan Harte (54) got the in­nings off to a pos­i­tive start, be­fore Bull­pitt and Blair Ren­nie (22 not out) brought the in­nings home.

Hiber­ni­ans seemed in a good po­si­tion to win, post­ing 214 from their 35 overs, high­lighted by Corey Parker’s 59 and Stu­art Flem­ing’s 62.

How­ever, two late wick­ets cost the side im­por­tant runs.

St George recorded a 66-run win in their game against North Kal­go­or­lie Roar after post­ing an im­pos­ing 219 in their in­nings.

Matt Pi­paro was the star with 69 not out, but the Roar bowlers also helped the score­board tick over with 13 no balls and 13 wides.

Zane Pad­man (59) was bowled by John Paul on the last ball of the in­nings in an at­tempt to push the score even higher.

Roar’s re­ply started steadily, at one stage sit­ting on 1/72, but a mid­dle-or­der col­lapse of five wick­ets for just 16 runs ef­fec­tively ended their day.

Lo­camo­tives had the big­gest win of the round, de­mol­ish­ing Gol­drush by 97 runs cour­tesy of half-cen­turies to Ryan Ed­wards (54) and Brodie Peter­son (53).

After post­ing 221 in their in­nings, the Lo­camo­tive bowlers re­stricted their op­po­si­tion to just 124, with Aaron Rymer pick­ing up 5-22 off his eight overs.

Vet­er­ans de­feated Kam­balda by 32 runs in the fi­nal game of the round.
