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.
