Open­ing matches fall foul of rain

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

RAIN on Satur­day washed out the open­ing matches in two lo­cal cricket leagues.

All games in the Premier Cricket com­pe­ti­tion, in­clud­ing Fre­man­tle Dis­tricts’ one-day match against Su­bi­aco Floreat, were aban­doned be­cause of heavy rain.

The re­sult might have been a re­prieve for Fre­man­tle, who had to play with­out Ash­ton Turner, Jake Carder and Jhye Richard­son.

Both teams have been given three points for the drawn game.

Fre­man­tle will next play Joon­dalup in another one-day match on Oc­to­ber 15 at the Iluka Sports Com­plex.

The South Metropoli­tan Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion’s round one games were also aban­doned.

Phoenix was set to play Thorn­lie, while Cock­burn matched up with Armadale and East Fre­man­tle had Bic­ton At­tadale.

Fix­tures on Oc­to­ber 15 have East Fre­man­tle play­ing CBC at Pre­ston Point Re­serve while Cock­burn play Phoenix at Dav­i­lak Re­serve.
