Mid­dle or­ders shine in bat­tle for shield

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

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.
