Per­fect score for Fre­man­tle

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

FRE­MAN­TLE Districts went two from two in their im­por­tant WA Premier Cricket one-day dou­ble header on the week­end.

They kicked it off with a home game against Scar­bor­ough on Satur­day, the lat­ter win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat first.

De­spite three wick­ets to Fre­man­tle’s Zach Fer­ris, an in­nings high 86 runs from Ni­cholas Maiolo helped steer Scar­bor­ough to a strong 6-240 at the end of their 50 overs.

It was a to­tal Fre­man­tle bat­tled hard to chase down and an­other fine bat­ting dis­play from opener Daniel Kennedy, who smacked 87 runs be­fore be­ing caught, helped the team chase down the to­tal with just 21 balls re­main­ing.

They backed it up the next day with an away match against Uni­ver­sity, again los­ing the toss and be­ing sent into the field.

Ben­jamin Moore and Jarryd McPhee helped them­selves to three wick­ets a piece as Fre­man­tle bowled their op­po­nents out for 201 runs in 48.4 overs.

A cen­tury from opener Jake Carder, ably sup­ported by Matthew Mi­cale with 67, helped Fre­man­tle chase down the to­tal in the 49ths over for the loss of just five wick­ets.

Fre­man­tle sit fourth on the one-day lad­der af­ter win­ning three of their four games. The two-day ac­tion be­gins this week­end with Fre­man­tle tak­ing on Perth at Fletcher Park from 11.40am on Oc­to­ber 28.
