Joondalup in the pink

Wanneroo Weekender - - Sport -

ILUKA Sport­ing Com­plex will turn pink as Joondalup looks to take a grip on third spot when it faces Wil­let­ton in WA Premier Cricket on Satur­day.

The Cen­tu­ri­ons have slot­ted into home fi­nal con­tention af­ter a rain-forced draw, which po­ten­tially saved them a loss against Uni­ver­sity last week­end.

Joondalup edged into third by three points, putting Perth, which lost to Melville, down to fourth.

The tight bat­tle gives the side lit­tle mar­gin for er­ror in the re­main­ing two games of the sea­son.

The Cen­tu­ri­ons were pre­car­i­ously poised at 1-14, chas­ing 222 against Uni­ver­sity at Iluka, head­ing into the sec­ond day be­fore rain had the sides share the points.

Joondalup will cel­e­brate its Pink Stumps Day this Satur­day to raise money for the fund­ing of McGrath Foun­da­tion breast can­cer nurses.

A ‘Pink Ladies Pavil­ion’ will of­fer wine tast­ing and high tea in­spired food, while the club bar will hold tast­ings of beer and cider.

The club is en­cour­ag­ing a gold coin do­na­tion.
