Bracey, Ugle pave way for Mariners’ win
Rockingham- Mandurah returned to the winners’ circle and the top of the WA Premier Cricket ladder after a 95- run win over Perth last Saturday.
Half- centuries to opener Tyler Robertson ( 52), James Bracey ( 77) and Dane Ugle ( 60no) helped the Mariners to 6- 250 from 50 overs, with Bracey and Ugle’s 121- run partnership for the fourth- wicket the backbone of the innings.
Former Mariner Kyle Gardiner took some punishment with the ball for Perth, going for 0- 59 from 10 overs, while Jack Baker was the pick of Perth’s trundlers with 3- 26.
Perth’s chase never really settled, with the Mariners claiming regular wickets to bundle them out out for 155 in the 44th over.
Captain Craig Simmons claimed 3- 13 and was well supported by Joel Marion ( 2- 16), Brandon Jacobs ( 231) and Robertson ( 2- 32).
The victory returned the Mariners to the top of the table after Claremont- Nedlands fell to a 13run defeat to Fremantle.
Rockingham- Mandurah face sixth- placed Melville at Tompkins Park on Saturday.
