Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

FRE­MAN­TLE Districts Cricket Club re­main un­de­feated in the two-day for­mat after a com­fort­able win over Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley on Satur­day.

Set­ting their op­po­nents a tar­get of 188 to win, Fre­man­tle’s bowlers went on a ram­page to close out day 1 to have Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley tee­ter­ing at 5-69.

The vis­i­tors were able to rally on day 2 thanks to a half-cen­tury by Joshua Fon­tana, but Fre­man­tle’s bowlers con­tin­ued to take reg­u­lar wick­ets through­out the day, keep­ing their op­po­nents to 148 and se­cur­ing the vic­tory.

Josh Cho­jnowski did most of the dam­age with the ball, tak­ing 7-58.

Fre­man­tle sit sixth on the WA Pre­mier Cricket com­pe­ti­tion lad­der and will next take on Mt Law­ley at Stevens Re­serve on Novem­ber 17 and 24.

In the South Met­ro­pol­i­tan Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion com­pe­ti­tion, two of the four lo­cal teams recorded vic­to­ries in their two-day matches.

East Fre­man­tle eas­ily sur­passed the 103 set by Bic­ton At­tadale, with 63 to Chris Si­ave and a match­high 80 from Nick Si­ave be­fore he re­tired hurt, help­ing the team to a to­tal of 185 and the win.

Hil­ton Palmyra set Cockburn a com­pet­i­tive to­tal of 162 to win, but a strong show­ing from Cockburn’s mid­dle or­der, led by a half-cen­tury from opener Sa­jith Kodi­tuwakku (52), helped Cockburn take the points with a to­tal of 181.

Paul For­rest was the pick of the bowlers for Hil­ton Palmyra, tak­ing 633.

Phoenix were un­able to de­fend a low to­tal of 125 in their match against SJ Blues.

De­spite three wick­ets apiece to Alec Lacey and Craig Stewart, the SJ Blues bat­ted their way to a to­tal of 190.

After four matches East Fre­man­tle are sit­ting third on the lad­der, with Phoenix just be­hind in fourth and Cockburn and Hil­ton Palmyra in the bot­tom half in sixth and eighth re­spec­tively.

In round 5 matches on Novem­ber 17 and 24, Phoenix will take on East Fre­man­tle, Cockburn will host Leem­ing Spar­tan and Hil­ton Palmyra will travel to take on CBC.
