Green takes cen­tre stage

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

CAMERON Green took cen­tre stage for the sec­ond time in a week, as the all­rounder helped Su­bi­aco-floreat to­wards a fi­nals berth dur­ing round 14 of Premier Cricket.

Sev­enth-placed Su­bi­aco-floreat, which is one point out­side the top six with two rounds to play, took the up­per hand against fifth-placed Melville in the crunch clash at Floreat Park Oval on Satur­day.

The Storm man­aged an early strike to open the in­nings, be­fore calming half-cen­turies to Alex Mal­colm and Aaron Lilly stead­ied the ship for the home team.

At 4-131, the game looked in the bal­ance be­fore Green took con­trol, smash­ing three fours and three sixes in a ma­ture in­nings of 83.

The young­ster was joined by WA team­mate Ja­son Behren­dorff (54) as they pushed the to­tal be­yond 300.

At Ab­bett Park on Satur­day, Nick Hob­son’s cen­tury saved Clare­mont-ned­lands on day one against Scar­bor­ough.

The left-han­der smashed 14 bound­aries in his knock of 112, as the Tigers posted 250 all out.

Jim Allenby made a pa­tient 46, how­ever the Gulls bowlers ran ram­pant through­out the day to re­strict the visi­tors, with the Tigers look­ing at the prospect of their first loss of the sea­son.

Univer­sity fought hard, but again strug­gled against a strong Perth side at Fletcher Park, with the Stu­dents mid­dle or­der only able to get starts.

Will Bo­sisto started brightly for the visi­tors with a pa­tient 45 be­fore in-form bowler Ja­cob Van Galen snared his prize wicket.

The Stu­dents were bowled out for just 172.

Perth is 1-44 in re­sponse with Alex Rose get­ting the only wicket.
