Hats off to bowlers

Joondalup Times - - SPORT -

JOON­DALUP stunned Bayswa­ter Mor­ley with a bril­liant bowl­ing per­for­mance, bowl­ing the Bears out for 91 to se­cure an eight-wicket win on Satur­day at Hill­crest Park.

The de­ci­sion to bowl by Joon­dalup turned out to be some­thing of a mas­ter­stroke as the Cen­tu­ri­ons’ bowlers came out breath­ing fire.

Con­nor Chadwick and Joe Inglis blasted their way through the Bears’ open­ing line up, com­bin­ing to take the first five wick­ets for just 17.

Lane Berry and Ross Loia­cono at­tempted to re­con­struct the in­nings with a fight­ing 35-run part­ner­ship, but Clin­ton Hinch­liffe in­serted him­self into the match with a bril­liant run out, in­flict­ing more pain on the Bears at 6-52.

Berry tried his best for the Bears, but part­ners came and went with ease as Chadwick con­tin­ued his dom­i­nance with the ball.

Berry was even­tu­ally dis­missed for 38 as the Bears were bowled out for a dis­ap­point­ing 91 in the 29th over. Chadwick was tremen­dous with the ball in hand, tak­ing 5-32 from just eight overs.

The Cen­tu­ri­ons barely raised a sweat when chas­ing down the Bears’ to­tal.

Clin­ton Hinch­liffe and Jaron Mor­gan com­bined for a sen­sa­tional 64-run third-wicket part­ner­ship.
