Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport - Tari Jef­fers

The War­ren-Black­wood Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion is tak­ing its hol­i­day break and will re­turn on Jan­uary 5.

With the sea­son more than half way through and eight rounds com­pleted, there is plenty of cricket ac­tion to come.

Top of the lad­der is Forestry, who is five points ahead of back-to-back win­ners Bridgetown, who sit in se­cond place.

In the first eight rounds, Forestry has al­ready taken 50 wick­ets and made a to­tal of 1391 runs.

Bridgetown has taken 46 wick­ets and made 1012 runs.

Third on the lad­der is Pem­ber­ton, Boyup Brook is fourth, North­cliffe is fifth and Man­jimup sixth.

Forestry player Jethro Nam­nik is top of the bat­ting av­er­age lad­der with 363 runs so far this sea­son, in­clud­ing 45 4s, nine 6s and his high­est score is 77, for a bat­ting av­er­age of 60.50.

Pem­ber­ton vet­eran Peter Bamess is se­cond on the bat­ting lad­der, with 319 runs for the sea­son, for an av­er­age of 106.33 and a sin­gle high score of 115 not out.

North­cliffe’s Wayne Smeathers is third on the lad­der, Boyup Brook’s Stephen Wright is fourth and Forestry’s Daniel Ward is fifth.

Bridgetown’s Mitchell Cloth­ier is top of the bowl­ing lad­der, Pem­ber­ton’s Joshua Tem­pra is se­cond, Boyup Brook’s Tris­tan Mead is third, Forestry’s Reece Ed­wards is fourth and Man­jimup’s James Millar is fifth.

The sea­son has been soured by the dis­so­lu­tion of Din­gup Cricket Club.

Once the other six teams have each re­ceived their for­feit points against the club, the fix­tures will be ad­justed so there are three games a week and no bye.

The grand fi­nal will be on March 16, 2019.
