Demons make the grade

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

PERTH Cricket Club were suc­cess­ful in three of the four se­nior grades against Wil­let­ton on the week­end.

First Grade bowled Wil­let­ton out for 176 to win com­fort­ably, with the wick­ets shared, though Liam Guthrie, Dean Nel­son and Shre Jain did the main dam­age.

Last week, Ben Mike and Tom Evans scored cen­turies with the bat.

This week, both un­der­lined their all-rounder qual­i­ties with out­stand­ing ef­forts with the ball.

Mike, play­ing Sec­ond Grade took 5-43 and Evans, in fourths, took 3-32.

An­other young­ster, Lach­lan McRobb, picked up 4-16 in Fourth Grade.

As the sea­son heads to­wards the busi­ness end, nu­mer­ous fi­nals beckon for the young Demons club. Perth look in good po­si­tion for a top six fin­ish in first, sec­ond and third grade.

The un­der 17s, un­der the guid­ance of Mike Hickey are in third po­si­tion.
