South Perth stare down spoon
SOUTH Perth is now odds on favourite to clinch the Premier Cricket wooden spoon after another disappointing loss to Rockingham-Mandurah at Lark Hill on Saturday.
The Sky Blues score of 205 was never going to be enough as the Mariners passed it five wickets down.
Alex Bevilaqua was the shining light for the away side claiming three wickets.
South Perth takes on top six contenders Claremont-Nedlands and the in-form Subiaco Floreat in the final two rounds.
Elsewhere, Perth slumped to defeat against the improving Fremantle at Stevens Reserve.
Chasing 327 for victory, the Demons were bowled out for 295.
Jonathan Wells was outstanding for Perth, batting for nearly the entire day, scoring 162 not out from 218 balls.
Wells smashed 20 boundaries to send a timely reminder to WA selectors, but his heroics weren’t enough.
