Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

CLARE­MONT-NED­LANDS moved to the top of the Pre­mier Cricket ta­ble after an em­phatic out­right vic­tory over Univer­sity at James Oval, head­lin­ing round five on Satur­day.

The Tigers re­main un­beaten and are the team to beat, after scor­ing the rare out­right vic­tory on the back of a won­der­ful all-round game from Tim David.

David fol­lowed his five-wicket haul in the first in­nings with a dom­i­nant 136no to put the rest of the com­pe­ti­tion on no­tice.

Debu­tant Kip Cameron was im­pres­sive with a half-cen­tury while Jim Al­lenby chimed in with 43.

The Tigers fin­ished at 3-297, be­fore bowl­ing the Stu­dents out again for a pal­try 115.

Player-coach Tim McDon­ald took three wick­ets early as he and Kea­gan Africa re­duced the hosts to 5-7.

Dan Tur­kich cleaned up the tail to take three wick­ets as the Tigers recorded the rare mile­stone.

Harry Pod­more again played a lone hand with 44 for Uni while Scott Mar­shall scored 35.

Su­bi­aco Floreat were out­done in a nar­row fix­ture against Wil­let­ton at Bur­ren­dah Re­serve, with Tim Mon­teleone play­ing a lone hand for the vis­i­tors.

Mon­teleone ham­mered 73 from 71 balls, in­clud­ing 14 bound­aries as the side fell short of the tar­get.

Young­ster Hamish McKen­zie showed prom­ise in his de­but, mak­ing 22 with the bat be­fore tak­ing two wick­ets in the sec­ond in­nings.
