Tye tears through Wan­neroo side

Stirling Times - - Sport - Dustin Ed­wards

SCAR­BOR­OUGH Cricket Club en­dured a mixed week­end in the Premier Cricket league, with a strong bowl­ing per­for­mance on day one of its two-day clash against Wan­neroo on Satur­day be­fore suf­fer­ing a nail-bit­ing four­wicket loss to Fre­man­tle dur­ing Sun­day’s T20 match.

Scar­bor­ough got off to a ter­rific start at Kingsway 1 on Satur­day as Perth Scorchers pace­man An­drew Tye made his pres­ence felt early, tak­ing four of the first five wick­ets of the two­day match.

Sit­ting at 5-77, Wan­neroo’s in­nings went from bad to worse, los­ing Chris­tian Smith and Kyle Mil­lar in quick suc­ces­sion to be floun­der­ing on 7-87.

Thank­fully for the home side, Jack Cat­trall and John Wal­ter fi­nally pro­vided some re­sis­tance, pro­duc­ing a 79run part­ner­ship to give the Roos a tar­get they could at­tempt to de­fend.

Scar­bor­ough, how­ever, con­tin­ued to push hard towards vic­tory, with Lochie Hardy and Nicholas Maiolo set­ting the tone for the run chase.

Both bats­men fin­ished the day at the crease be­fore turn­ing their fo­cus to Sun­days T20 match against Fre­man­tle.

Scar­bor­ough again en­joyed a solid start to the match at Ab­bett Park East on Sun­day, with Josh Philippe and Nicholas Maiolo record­ing a tremen­dous 86-run part­ner­ship af­ter los­ing Jeremy Boyle early.

How­ever, the runs dried up quickly when Philippe and Maiolo were dis­missed for 63 and 52 re­spec­tively.

The rest of Scar­bor­ough’s bats­men failed to reach dou­ble fig­ures as it lost its last seven wick­ets for 40 runs, sit­ting on 9-150 at the end of the in­nings.

Fre­man­tle’s re­sponse was im­me­di­ate, scor­ing freely through Chris Daven­port (77 from 52) and Jake Carder (22 from 14).

Much like Scar­bor­ough’s in­nings, once the pair were dis­missed the runs dried up dra­mat­i­cally.

How­ever, An­thony Collova fought to the death, hit­ting the win­ning runs with one ball to spare, se­cur­ing a four­wicket win for Fre­man­tle.

Scar­bor­ough will be look­ing to re­cap­ture its good form from day one of its two-day match when it re­sumes bat­tle with Wan­neroo on day two.
