Middle orders shine in battle for shield
Falling to 5-93, Subiaco Floreat looked in trouble largely due to new recruit Alex Penter (3-26) and Josh Dallimore (4-21), who ripped through the top order.
The Lions middle order then put partnerships together, taking the innings down to the wire.
Solid contributions from Chris Hansberry (30) and Aaron Lilly (39) meant the away side was able to chase down the total in the 47th over.
Claremont-Nedlands hosted Willetton at Cresswell Park and were far too good, dominating the fixture from start to finish.
Willetton’s score of 147 was never going to be enough, with Dan Turkich the standout bowler for the home side with 4-32 from his 10 overs.
In reply, Jacob Whiteaker made an unbeaten 69 guiding his side to their first win. The Tigers finished 2-148 in their innings.
