Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

CLARE­MONT-NED­LANDS, Univer­sity and Su­bi­aco-Floreat had mixed re­sults over the dou­ble week­end, when rounds three and four were played over Satur­day and Sun­day in the Pre­mier Cricket Com­pe­ti­tion.

Clare­mont-Ned­lands won two from two, with cap­tain Travis Birt the star act on Satur­day with a bru­tal 147 off 117 balls in the win over Scar­bor­ough at Ab­bett Park.

The 33-year-old former Tas­ma­nian had good sup­port from Chris Brabazon on 62 as the away side set the Gulls 262 to win.

Paul Don­ald­son took three wick­ets and Joel Paris two on his re­turn as the home side reached 145 at the end of their 50 overs, giv­ing Clare­mon­tNed­lands the win.

On Sun­day, the Tigers were far too good for Mid­land-Guild­ford, spoil­ing Stew­art Wal­ters’ 200th game and tri­umph­ing by six wick­ets.

Su­bi­aco-Floreat knocked off Gos­nells af­ter a man of the match per­for­mance by Chris Hans­berry on Satur­day at Floreat Park.

The cap­tain scored 62 as the Lions set Gos­nells 216 to win.

Hans­berry tore through the bat­ting line-up, tak­ing 4-17 as Gos­nells were bowled out for 101.

Sun­day was vastly dif­fer­ent for the Lions, who crashed to an em­bar­rass­ing score of 43, los­ing by 142 runs to Melville at Tomp­kins Park.

No bats­man passed dou­ble fig­ures in a dis­ap­point­ing out­ing for the away side.
