Rain can’t deny Freo

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

FRE­MAN­TLE has con­tin­ued its charge to the fi­nals by de­feat­ing Univer­sity in Round 12 of Premier Cricket.

Rain halted any chance of an out­right win with no play tak­ing place at Stevens Re­serve.

For­tu­nately for Fre­man­tle the dam­age had been in­flicted a week ear­lier with the hosts claim­ing a first in­nings win and vi­tal points.

Jake Carder scored 42 runs to help the hosts post 141 against a dis­ci­plined Univer­sity out­fit on day one.

The to­tal proved enough with Michael Ho­gan and Jamie Heath tak­ing four wick­ets each to rout Univer­sity for just 93 runs.

At one stage the vis­i­tors were 5-16 and from there they could not re­cover.

Fre­man­tle is now sixth with three rounds re­main­ing.
