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.

Fantasy Wrap Round 3

There concludes our first double week round. In round three club legend and all around great moustache haver Cameron ‘The Weapons’ MacDonald has taken his first win, thanks to his Fantasy Captain Jack Cattrall providing a cheeky 165 (330) points. I only hope he pays his entry fee before something happens to the bar card with his name on it.
