Roos hope to in­flict more mis­ery

Wanneroo Weekender - - Sport - Mark Don­ald­son

JOON­DALUP re­mains win­less, while Wan­neroo is look­ing for its sec­ond win of the sea­son head­ing into the fierce ri­vals’ derby clash in WA Premier Cricket on Satur­day.

The bat­tle is the first of two one-day­ers this week­end be­fore the two-day fix­tures be­gin.

On Sun­day, Joon­dalup faces Rock­ing­ham-Man­durah and Wan­neroo chal­lenges Perth.

The Cen­tu­ri­ons have seem­ingly fallen a long way back from last year’s grand fi­nal ap­pear­ance af­ter los­ing their open­ing two games of the sea­son.

Their lat­est loss came in a two-wicket de­feat to Mid­land-Guild­ford at Iluka on

Satur­day. A half-cen­tury to opener Jaron Mor­gan (55) and 45 to Jake Szilin­sky were the high points of the hosts’ in­nings,

which ended on 157 in the 35th over.

The vis­i­tors sur­passed the to­tal in the 41st over.

With Joon­dalup cap­tain Michael John­son as wick­et­keeper, WA glove­man Josh Inglis be­came the sur­prise lead­ing wicket taker, snar­ing 3-31.

At Kingsway Sport­ing Com­plex, Wan­neroo fell vic­tim to Wil­let­ton by two wick­ets in an ex­cit­ing clash that went down to the fi­nal over.

Roos cap­tain Chris­tian Smith starred with the bat to score an un­beaten 98 in his side’s 9-184.

The vis­i­tors had solid con­tri­bu­tions across the board with four play­ers re­turn­ing 20-plus scores, led by Bren­nan Wil­son’s un­beaten 46.

Wan­neroo’s Jack Cat­trall, Matthew Dzod­zos and Chris Quelch took two wick­ets each.
