Tigers, Bears in tense clash
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.
