Tigers stretch un­beaten spell with dom­i­nant win

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local - with El­liot Raiter

CLARE­MONT-NEDLANDS stretched its un­de­feated streak to 11 matches af­ter dis­man­tling Mid­land-Guild­ford in round 12 of Premier Cricket at Cress­well Park.

Tim David once again stamped his au­thor­ity on the competition with a match-win­ning knock that edges the Tigers closer to the Kevin Sullivan Sil­ver Cup for the mi­nor pre­mier­ship.

Nick Hob­son (94) and David (108 n.o.) smashed the ball to all parts in a bru­tal part­ner­ship as they eased past Mid­land-Guild­ford’s first-in­nings score of 143.

Hob­son was un­lucky not to reach triple fig­ures, be­ing caught be­hind, but there was no such trou­ble for David, scor­ing his third century for the cam­paign.

Amaz­ingly, the mid­dle-or­der bats­man now av­er­ages 94 for the year.

The Tigers fin­ished at 5-321 and could only man­age four sec­ond-in­nings wick­ets to close the game.

Su­bi­aco-Floreat has fallen out of the top six af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing 110-run loss against Gos­nells at Suther­lands Park.

Geremy Fa­touros led the charge early for the vis­i­tors with 24, while Aaron Lilly tried hard for his 34, as Gos­nells took wick­ets at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals.

Some late fight from Chris Hans­berry and An­drew Holder wasn’t enough, as the side was bowled out for 177.

Uni­ver­sity went down in an ex­cit­ing clash against South Perth at James Oval, with the Stu­dents fall­ing 18 runs short.

In a bat­tle of two young sides, the vis­i­tors struck first, hav­ing Uni­ver­sity 24 early. Matt Bir­rell sin­gle-hand­edly kept his side in the con­test with a gritty hun­dred to take the game down to the wire.

The mid­dle-or­der bats­man struck 10 bound­aries and two sixes in his 200ball stay, with the lower or­der help­ing along the way.
