Forestry on top heading into break
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.
Peter Bamess from Pemberton is second on the batting ladder, which includes a 115 not out.
Jethro Namnik from Forestry sits on top of the batting ladder.
