Western Suburbs Weekly - - Classifieds -

UNIVER­SITY and Clare­mont-Ned­lands have taken con­trol on day one of their two-day games, while Su­bi­aco Floreat strug­gled in round five of the Pre­mier Cricket Com­pe­ti­tion last Satur­day.

The sec­ond day of the fix­tures will be played next Satur­day, start­ing at 11.40am.

Former Aus­tralian un­der-19 in­ter­na­tional Matt Kelly was the star for the Tigers at Fletcher Park, rip­ping through Perth’s top or­der to set up an achiev­able chase.

Send­ing the home side in, 20-yearold right-arm quick Kelly re­duced the hosts to 3-5 in­side the first few overs, be­fore Perth con­sol­i­dated.

New Zealan­der Nathan McKen­zie chipped in to take 3-66, be­fore Kelly knocked off the tail to fin­ish with im­pres­sive fig­ures of 5-34.

The Tigers then bat­ted out the day and at stumps were 1-78.

Steve Eski­nazi was dis­missed late for 38 on an oth­er­wise per­fect day for the away team.

Univer­sity man­aged to get their first points of the sea­son af­ter tak­ing first-in­nings points against Mt Law­ley at UWA Sports Park.

Send­ing the vis­i­tors in, the Stu­dents made early in­roads, largely due to Alex Pen­ter (5-19) and David Moody (3-42).

Con­sis­tent wick­ets meant Mt Law­ley could only post a to­tal of 85.

The Stu­dents lost an early wicket be­fore Will Bo­sisto (52no) and Nick Maiolo (52) com­bined for an 81-run stand to pass the to­tal with ease.

Univer­sity fin­ished on 3-134 at stumps and will look to force an out­right next week­end.

Su­bi­aco Floreat found wick­ets hard to come by all day against Fre­man­tle at Floreat Park Oval.

Chris Wood made an un­beaten ton to leave Fre­man­tle at 6-304 and in a dom­i­nant po­si­tion.

Chris Hans­berry and Glenn Stock­den took three wick­ets each for the home side.
