Storm brew­ing as big tar­get set

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

SEC­OND-PLACED Clare­mont-Ned­lands has a tough chase on its hands in its block­buster clash with Melville in round eight of the Premier Cricket com­pe­ti­tion.

Clare­mont-Ned­lands will need 289 for vic­tory this Satur­day against the Storm af­ter a tough first day on Satur­day for the bowlers at Cress­well Park.

Jamie Roberts was out­stand­ing for the hosts with 5-16, how­ever many of the other bowlers strug­gled for wick­ets.

Matt Kelly took 2-57, while the spin pair of Dan Tur­kich and Hay­dan Mor­ton was among the wick­ets too.

At Floreat Park, Glenn Stockden tried his best but Su­bi­aco Floreat lost its fix­ture on first in­nings points to Perth.

The Lion took 5-66 to bring his side back into con­tention be­fore a late flurry of runs from Perth en­sured a vic­tory as the Demons chased down 120.

A score of 120 was never go­ing to be enough as they now look to cre­ate a pos­si­bil­ity of an out­right win this Satur­day.

Univer­sity will need early wick­ets on day two in its game against Mid­land-Guild­ford af­ter a tight first day at James Oval.

Nick Maiolo was once again the stand­out with 68 at the top of the or­der.

Josh Ma­son scored 63 not out to pro­pel the Stu­dents to a com­pet­i­tive 218.

Mid­land-Guild­ford is 1-16 in re­ply.
