Boyup have the an­swers

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport -

Tight bowl­ing and pre­cise bat­ting by Boyup Brook’s Char­lie Miller and Leigh Clark helped the vis­i­tors come away with the win against Man­jimup in round six of the War­ren Black­wood Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion at Col­lier Street on Satur­day.

Man­jimup won the toss and sent the vis­i­tors in to bat.

Leigh Ward (4-35) took the key wicket of Tris­tan Mead with the sec­ond de­liv­ery of the match to put the home side in a good po­si­tion.

Ward then re­moved three more of the top five bats­men to have Boyup strug­gling at 5-64.

Clark (41) pro­duced a quick and de­light­ful in­nings to give the vis­i­tors runs on the board and was joined by Miller (48 not out), who played a su­perb in­nings. Boyup were car­ried through by this su­perb in­nings and even af­ter Clark’s dis­missal, Miller got the vis­i­tors over the line to fin­ish with a de­fend­able score of 168.

An­thony Femia also put in a good bowl­ing per­for­mance, pick­ing up two wick­ets.

Man­jimup’s open­ers had a task on their hands but Ja­cob Maw and Mead’s tight bowl­ing at the start had the home side at 2-33.

William Masters (41) and Jozef Parkin­son (21) com­bined for 48 be­fore a mix-up caused Parkin­son to be run-out.

With Man­jimup’s run rate look­ing slow, Cameron Har­ris (19) and Rhett Hol­will (20) tried to steady the ship be­fore Mead (5-13) had other ideas. He pro­duced an ex­cel­lent spell to trig­ger an­other Man­jimup lower or­der col­lapse which saw the team dis­missed for 130 and de­feat by 38 runs.

Boyup’s Joseph Thomp­son chimed in with three wick­ets.

Bridgetown will host Pem­ber­ton on Satur­day and North­cliffe will host Forestry on Sun­day.
