Shout-Out to MGC Civil

It was great to see Pat Murphy down at the club last weekend for our launch, seen here helping Vin Clarke get the stumps just right!

Pat & his family business MGC Civil are massive supporters of junior & senior sport in the area and are cricket tragics.

Looking forward to seeing you down the club more often Pat.

Weekend Wrap

A little-known fact about Meatloaf is that his 1977 hit was almost titled “Two out of Four Aint Bad”. He decided against this title as it would have given away the result from this weekend’s Senior fixtures vs. Joondalup.

1st Grade

1st Grade posted back-to-back Two Day victories with a comprehensive win over Northside rivals Joondalup.

On our brand new Kingsway pitches, Joondalup could only manage 201, with Matt “Anthrax” Spoors taking a hat-trick on his way to 4/6 and Caiden “Slug” Eaton taking 3/39.

In reply, our marquis players put on a clinic with Travis “Tuberculosis” Birt dominating with 113 and Stuart “Jeff” Thompson falling for 87. WDCC secured the victory with 8 wickets in hand.

2nd Grade

2nd Grade celebrated their first victory of the season in emphatic fashion, with Adam “Wesson and” Smith wreaking havoc at Illuka with 4/27.

Set just 177 for victory, Callum “CD” Douglas (51) and Riley “Christmas” Holly (34) got the boys off to a great start before Bailey “Zinger” Nylander set Illuka alight (not literally) with 77. Nylander and Michael “Max’s Bro” Kelsey (39) saw the Roos home.

3rd Grade

3rd Grade lost in a heart-breaker at Kingway 2, chasing 198 after Gagandeep “G-Train” Singh took 4/37.

In reply, the Roos were cruising thanks to a breezy 52 from Donnie “Post-Honeymoon Runs” Fryer and and determined 42 from James “Mont” Dicarlo. But with victory in sight, the Magees lost four wickets for just 15 runs to lose by 10.

4th Grade

4th Grade found themselves chasing a big total at Illuka 2, despite Hayden “Stumpy” Stumpers and Sharad Jessani taking three wickets a piece.

In reply, dozens of spectators were treated to John “The Batsman” Walter compiling a classy 52, supported by Tim “Marcus” Harris (40) Nick “Subway” Santich (33). Unfortunately the Al Gores fell short by just 120 runs.

17s

Our 17s posted 9/156 in the first hit-out on the new pitches at Kingsway 2. Despite several starts from the likes of Mitch Slattery (21), Aryan Varsani (22), Jack McDonald (31) and Sam Williams (33) the youths couldn’t kick on.

In reply, Joondalup batted well to pass the total with seven wickets in hand.

15s

Our 15s posted an imposing 223 at Belridge, with Jayden “Sting” Rae leading the way with 72. Rae was supported well by Thomas “The Tank Engine” Pullinger (55).

In reply, Joondalup were dismissed for 199 with Pullinger going bananas with 6/27.

14s

U14’s had a win chasing Subiaco Floreat’s 9/176. Mitchell “MJ” Lonnie took 3/21.

In a tight finish, the young Roos got across the line with one wicket in hand, with Cody “Billy-C” Billington (46) and Mitch “Smooth Criminal” Lonnie doing well with the bat.

13s

Our 13s posted 7/174 with Blake “The Snake” Holly top scoring with 65. In reply, Subiaco Floreat were routed for 94 with Oscar “The Grouch” Thompson taking 5/29, including a hat-trick!

Weekend Wrap

The Mighty Roos have turned it on against Mount Lawley, falling just short of a “Golden Roo” clean sweep in both the Juniors and Seniors.

Seniors

1st Grade

Batting first at Breckler Park, our impressive batting line-up showed off their class with 280 posted. Stuart “International Import” Thompson led the way with 84, supported by Kyle “Uptown Funk” Millar (55) and Matt “Anthrax” Spoors (49). In reply, our bowlers shared the spoils to dismiss Mount Lawley for 180. Thompson made Fantasy investors very happy with 2/33, whilst Matt “Double Zee” Dzodzos took 2/35.

2nd Grade

The Magoos battled on day one, dismissed for just 114 despite a gutsy 33 from Riley “Buddy” Holly.  Mount Lawley replied with 226, with Deon “Lando” Billington taking 5/55 and Adam “Sam” Smith taking 3/38.

An outright loss was on the cards before Holly (47) and Josh “POTUS” Quelch (39*) saved the day.

3rd Grade

Batting first at UWA Sports Park, spectators (pretty much just the Ong family) were treated to a batting masterclass by Rob “Hally’s Evil Twin” Fairchild (133), ably supported by Allan “Atomic” Hall (44) and Jordan “#1 Son” Slattery (42).  The Magees posted an imposing 348.

In reply, the sheer weight of runs required wore down the opposition, eventually dismissed for 178. Darcy “Pride & Prejudice” Forssman spun a web of wonder and intrigue as he took 6/51, whilst Fantasy favourite Tim “F-Bomb” Bond took 2/31.

4th Grade

One day one at Charles Veryard Reserve, the Roos knocked Mount Lawley over for just 97. Hayden “Doesn’t Keep” Stumpers took 3/17, Saleem “PT Barber” Ahmed 3/53, and Nick “Sandwich” Santich took 2/9.

In a nailbiting finish, the Roos scored the runs 8 down, thanks to some heroics from Braiden “Huddo” Hudson and Tim “Scarfe” Harris (26).

4th Grade (Sunday)

The Al Gores backed up on Sunday to play their round 3 clash vs. Claremont-Nedlands which had been delayed due to ground availability. batting first, skipper Jacob “Boner” Bonner led the way with 82, along with Cam “Old” MacDonald scoring 57 in his first innings coming back from injury.  Braiden “Dr. Huddstable” Hudson chipped in with 44*.

In reply, the Tigers came close but eventually fell 10 runs short. Hudson took 4/49 and Matt “MP” Purcell took 2/51.

Juniors

17s

Aryan “AV DeBilliers” Varsani led the way with 51 as the Roos posted 141. In reply, the Roos looked in control before a late order fightback saw Mount Lawley fall short by just three runs.  Sam “Robbie” Williams was the pick of the bowlers with 3/36.

15s

Our 15s dismissed Mount Lawley for 130, with three wickets apiece to Thomas “Puller” Pullinger (3/12) and Michael “Taking De Filipis” DeFilippis (3/20).

In reply, Jayden “J-Rod” Rae (48) and Lachlan “Lachie D-Train” Dargie (38) saw the lads home.

14s

Our 14s posted 125, with Cody “Billy-C” Billington top scoring with 34.  Unfortunately Midland-Guildford knocked off the runs comfortably. Mitchell “Bonnie” Lonnie was our best bowler with 2/20.

13s

Rounding out the Juniors, our 13s restricted Midland-Guildford to 8/135, with Blake “The Snake” Holly taking 2/15. Riley “Jason” Gillespie dominated with 61*, supported by Matthew “Christmas” Carroll (46).

Female Youth League

In the first game of the season, our Female Youth League cricketers took on Subiaco Floreat at Floreat Park.

Our Roos bowled first and did well to keep Subiaco Floreat to 1/139, having collectively bowled and fielded well.

WDCC lost a few early wickets but batted our full allocation of overs with positive batting from Shayna Jesani, Ella Stewart and Danni Eckley (the latter 2 both not out with 14 and 13). Whilst our Roos fell short finishing at 3/41, there was a lot of promise and fight shown.
