Great team bat ef­fort

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

GOSNELLS has had a strong start in their two­day match against Fremantle, push­ing their runs tally past 300 for the first time this sea­son.

The de­ci­sion to win the toss and bat first paid div­i­dends for Gosnells who, de­spite los­ing opener Ben Green early, ral­lied to 3175.

A few quick wick­ets en­sued but strong bat­tling from al­most the en­tire line-up, in­clud­ing a 117-run cen­tury from Jonathon Crowe, helped Gosnells to 307.

Fremantle’s Ross Ma­cauley did most of the dam­age with the ball tak­ing four wick­ets, while Zach Fer­ris and Ti­mothy Miles took two a piece.

There was just enough time in the day for Gosnells to squeeze in two overs in the field, which again proved for­tu­itous, as Chris Prescott struck in the first over to re­move Ma­cauley for a four-ball duck.

Gosnells will be push­ing to close out just their sec­ond win of the sea­son when the match con­tin­ues at Stevens Re­serve this Satur­day from 11.40am.
