Cattrall-Eaton tough tandem
WANNEROO has impressed with the ball on day 1, bowling Willetton out for 158 on Saturday and putting itself in prime position to snatch a firstinnings victory in Premier Cricket at Burrendah Park.
After winning the toss and electing to bat, Willetton struggled its way to 4-63 as the Roos’ bowlers came out breathing fire.
Cameron Bancroft managed to keep a cool head under the Roos’ pressure, navigating through the carnage to produce a 67-run partnership with Brennan Wilson.
Unfortunately for the Dragons, the loss of Bancroft for 63 at 5-130 was the end of their defence as the Roos blasted through the final five wickets in the space of 22 runs.
Jack Cattrall and Caiden Eaton worked superbly in tandem, snagging three wickets each as Willetton was bowled out for a measly 158.
The Dragons could not find a decent partnership to stem the flow of wickets, with eight batsmen scoring nine runs or less highlighting the issue.
The Roos responded well when playing out the day, finishing on 1-46 after 17 overs, setting up an intriguing second day of action.
