Western Suburbs Weekly - - Training & Education - FROM outer THE with El­liot Raiter

CLARE­MONT-NED­LANDS Cricket Club re­in­forced its Premier Cricket flag favouritism by de­feat­ing Fre­man­tle in a top-of-the-ta­ble clash at Cress­well Park on Sun­day.

The Tigers knocked off Su­bi­aco Floreat in Satur­day’s round 9 lo­cal derby at Floreat Park Oval, be­fore tak­ing on the only other un­de­feated side in round 10 of Premier Cricket on Sun­day.

The league lead­ers tri­umphed thanks to Jack Cat­trall’s four-wicket haul that re­stricted Fre­man­tle to 219, de­spite Perth Scorchers batsman Shaun Marsh’s cen­tury for the Port Boys.

In re­ply, Jake Whiteaker an­chored the in­nings with a pa­tient 66 at the top of the or­der be­fore the ex­pe­ri­enced James Al­lenby (37n.o.) guided the Tigers home with 10 balls to spare.

The re­sult means Clare­mont-Ned­lands move 16 points clear at the top and ap­pear des­tined to win the Kevin Sul­li­van Sil­ver Cup as mi­nor pre­miers.

Su­bi­aco Floreat moved up to fifth spot, with a stun­ning bowl­ing per­for­mance help­ing it to a 75-run win over Perth at Fletcher Park on Sun­day.

The Lions man­aged only 156, de­spite Calum How’s 80, but some­how de­fended it, rolling the fourth-placed Demons for 81, with James Sansa­lone tak­ing 4-10.

Univer­sity had a win and a loss over the week­end, tri­umph­ing by three wick­ets over Wan­neroo thanks to Josh Ma­son’s 74 at James Oval on Sun­day.

The Stu­dents lost to Mt Law­ley at Breck­ler Park by four wick­ets on Satur­day.
