Demons ris­ing up the ranks

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

THE Perth Demons rose to the top of the Premier Cricket lad­der with­out bowl­ing a ball on Satur­day when Round Seven con­cluded.

The Demons’ first in­nings vic­tory on the first day of their match against Joon­dalup at Fletcher Park was enough to see them lead the lad­der af­ter bad weather stopped the match on Satur­day.

Clare­mont-Ned­lands loss to Rock­ing­ham-Man­durah saw the Demons re­turn to the sum­mit af­ter seven rounds of ac­tion.

South Perth drew its game against Mt Law­ley at Breck­ler Park, with rain play­ing a big part in the fix­ture.

The Sky Blues got on the field late in the day, man­ag­ing 4-114 off 38 overs be­fore the match was deemed a draw.

In Sun­day’s Statewide T20 dou­ble-header matches, Perth de­feated Fre­man­tle and Scar­bor­ough to fin­ish run­ners-up which would seal its progress to the fi­nals.

South Perth’s fix­tures at Breck­ler Park were aban­doned due to poor con­di­tions fol­low­ing rain.
