Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local - with El­liot Raiter

UNIVER­SITY made it two wins in a row to surge up to eighth on the Premier Cricket ta­ble with vic­tory over Rock­ing­ham-Man­durah at Lark Hill last Satur­day.

Twin tons to Nick Maiolo and the de­part­ing John Rogers was the high­light of a bru­tal win for the Stu­dents af­ter beat­ing Mt Law­ley out­right in round five.

Can­berra-bound Rogers scored 108 not out, while Maiolo man­aged 103 to con­tinue his rich vein of form with both bat and ball.

Craig King scored 77 in his re­turn, while cap­tain Matt Bir­rell smashed 46 as Uni de­clared at 5375 in re­ply to the Mariners’ day one score of 176.

Clare­mont-Ned­lands held on to top spot with an easy win over Fre­man­tle by 58 runs at Stevens Re­serve.

De­spite the in­clu­sion of Aus­tralian Test all-rounder Mitch Marsh for the hosts, Clare­mont-Ned­lands took late wick­ets to se­cure the win on day two, bowl­ing out Fre­man­tle for 265.

Hay­dan Mor­ton was the pick of the bowlers with 3-93, while Matt Kelly cel­e­brated his re­turn to the Toy­ota Fu­tures League team with two wick­ets.

Su­bi­aco-Floreat re­main an­chored in the bot­tom four af­ter go­ing down to Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley at Floreat Park Oval.

De­fend­ing 202, the hosts needed early wick­ets and did so, but couldn’t stop the steady flow of runs.

Chris Hans­berry led the way with three wick­ets, while Tom Moscarda and An­drew Holder took two wick­ets apiece as the Bears were bowled out for 299.

Su­bi­aco-Floreat fin­ished the day at 3-55, with Calum How smash­ing 38 not out.
