Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

PERTH closed out their round five fix­ture against Mid­landGuild­ford with a clean sweep of the Se­niors and also vic­tory in the un­der-17s.

Af­ter set­ting them 343 to win last week, led by Jake Van Galen with 4-55 and Dean Nel­son with 342, Perth dis­missed their op­po­nents for 201.

The fire­works be­gan in the se­cond in­nings as Jake Snad­den blasted a 60-ball cen­tury.

Bring­ing back mem­o­ries of the Gilchrist era, he fin­ished with a highly en­ter­tain­ing 111 in­clud­ing 14 bound­aries and five shots that cleared the fence.

For­mer club cap­tain Royce Blight scored a mas­ter­ful cen­tury in the com­fort­able vic­tory for Perth’s Se­cond Grade.

South Perth recorded their first loss of the Premier Cricket sea­son, go­ing down to Scar­bor­ough in a cliffhanger at Richardson Park on Satur­day.

Chas­ing Scar­bor­ough’s 247, the Sky Blues re­sumed play at 023 and found them­selves in a winnable po­si­tion at 5-188.

Trent Ovens was im­pres­sive with 57 at the top of the or­der, while young­ster Dar­ius D’Silva showed his ma­tu­rity with 63, as he con­tin­ues his promis­ing sea­son.

South Perth lost their last five wick­ets for just 35 runs, to be bowled out for 223.

The South Perth bats­men could not quite get the job done.
