Western Suburbs Weekly - - Workplace - with El­liot Raiter

CLARE­MONT-NED­LANDS played out a rare and thrilling tie against Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley at Cress­well Park in last Satur­day’s round 11 Premier Cricket ac­tion.

The Tigers, with one wicket in hand, scored 11 runs off the fi­nal over to sal­vage some­thing from a tense clash to re­main in the top four.

Bowl­ing first, Clare­mont-Ned­lands strug­gled for early in-roads be­fore Jack Cat­trall tore through the Bears line-up to take 4-38.

Matt Kelly also chimed in with two wick­ets of his own.

The hosts then lost early wick­ets in pur­suit of 204, be­fore stand-in cap­tain Nick Hob­son re­turned to form with 59.

Some late hit­ting from Jamie Roberts (39) meant the Tigers took the game to the last over.

Josh Ma­son (58) and Nick Maiolo led the Stu­dents to an im­pos­ing score of 230, with Matt Bir­rell also man­ag­ing 44.

De­fend­ing the to­tal, James Muir­head took 4-38, while Will Bo­sisto chipped in with two wick­ets to re­strict the Storm to 181.

Su­bi­aco Floreat has chased down 250 against Wil­let­ton to reignite their sea­son on Satur­day at Bur­ren­dah Re­serve.

Wil­let­ton posted 3-249 with Ash Blake tak­ing all three wick­ets. In pur­suit, Calum How was again the star with 67 from 65 balls, while Aaron Lilly guided the side home with 67, to chase down the to­tal with four balls re­main­ing.
