Batting first at Fletcher Park East, the Roos were in trouble early as Josh Nicholas (4/63) and Jacob Van Galen (4/48) reduced the visitors to 4/41.
Skipper Travis “Purveyor of Fine Socks” Birt (56) steadied the ship with Haydn “Devon” Slodecki (32) before a lower order partnership between Jack “Allrounder” Cattrall (47*) and Caiden “Slug” Eaton (26) steered the Roos to a respectable 222.
In reply, Perth slumped to 3/34 with a wicket to Chris “DOC” Quelch, a wicket to Adam “Richie DiMaso” Smudge, and a cheeky run-out.
The Magoos trucked hard in the heat as Perth set an imposing 9/274 off their 90 overs. Perth’s Dan Moreton (99) fell just short of a century, whilst Donavinn “Buffalo Steak” Fryer was the pick of the bowlers with 4/36. Jordan “Katie Price” Slattery chimed in with 2/32.
The Magees will be disappointed to have not built on several starts, with eight batsmen reaching double figures but none passing 35.
Andrew “No. 1” Slattery top scored with 34 as the Roos were dismissed for 162.
In reply, Perth are 1/20.
The upper hand was exchanged several times at Kingsway 2, with Perth eventually finishing the day with 9/219. The star with the ball was undoubtedly Nick “Sandwich” Santich taking 6/92.
Wanneroo batted first and reached 4/113 off 36 overs, with Mitch “MS Dhoni” Slattery top scoring with 30.
The 15s powered to 7/203 on the back of a wonderful batting display from Connor “Spangers & Mash” Spangenberg (61). Spangenburg was well supported by Jack “Jack Black” Maraldo (31) Michael “Taking” DeFilippis (25*).
After winning the toss and batting, the Roos failed to capitalise on several starts but still posted 5/183 off 39.3 overs vs. Mount Lawley. Cody “Billy C” Billington top scored with 26.
In reply, Mount Lawley were too good as they reached the target with six wickets in hand and went on to post 5/183. Tyrone Virgo (81*) and Evan French (59) were the chief destroyers with the bat, whilst Adam “Jerry” Lewis (2/28) was the best with the ball for the Roos.
Wanneroo won the toss and invited Mount Lawley to bat first. After making some early inroads, our young Roos were under the pump as James Timcke (50) and Matthew Crock (34) put on 84 for the 4th wicket.
Oscar “The Grouch” Thompson (3/34) and Ben “BC” Carmignani (3/38) saved the day as the Roos clawed back the Hawks to restrict them to 9/146.
In reply, Tyler “TB” Brown (66) and Blake “The Snake” Holly (33) guided the Roos to victory as they posted 6/159.
This week the mighty Roos take on Perth in a two-day clash.

After being rolled for 148, the 1st innings went down to the wire with Bayswater-Morley passing the total with one wicket in hand. Matt “Anthrax” Spoors (3/31) and Matt “Dzdzdzdz” Dzodzos (3/12) trucked hard but couldn’t close the deal.
Skipper Travis “Big Birt” Birt rallied his troops and led from the front by opening the batting in the 2nd innings. In an innings that astounded and amazed players and spectators, Birt hit 28 runs off the first over and 52 runs off just 15 deliveries and the Roo Train charged to 5 declared for 169. Rob “Handbrake” Richards fed the strike to Birt before accelerating himself to score 69.
Defending a small total with time running out, Jack “Amnesia” Cattrall built up a head of steam and tore through the Bears batting lineup, taking 6/20 off 14 overs as the Roos rolled the Bears for just 75 to claim an incredible reverse outright.
With Bayswater-Morley limping at 7/83 overnight chasing Wanneroo’s 166, the Roos took to the field with confidence and took the 8th wicket for 109. But that was the only sniff of victory for the day, as Grant Thistle (120*) and Luke Waterhouse (74) combined for a huge 156 run partnership to win by two wickets. Adam “Jackson Maine” Smith returned solid figures of 4/46.
Chasing 210 at Kingsway 2, the Magees started strongly with Cam “Old” MacDonald (82), Mitch “Slatts 2.1” Slattery (33) and Michael “Kelso 2.0” Kelsey (34) steering the ship to 2/180. Unfortunately the ship then exploded with the Roos losing 8/29 and losing by an agonizing one run.
Defending 237, our young Al Gores plugged away in the until Jack Maraldo came on as 4th change and backed up his 58 with the bat by taking 5/40 and rolling the Bears for 184.
Female Youth League
We bowled first having won the toss. Sharing the load we restricted Melville to 114 with Meagham “Phil” Emery snaring her first victim of the season, LB plum in front. The remainder of the bowling was efficient and restricted a very strong Melville side.
Our batting didn’t start well and never really got going until Shayna “SJ” Jesani steadied the ship again, playing an anchor role with sound defence and technique. Periodic resistance was offered briefly by Emma “Specter” Harvey and Emery until we were all out with 2 overs to spare.
The girls secured a great victory in Round 2 at home to Midland, lost narrowly at Rocky Mandurah and were well beaten in the other 3 Rounds so will not make finals.
The competitive season has now finished leaving a solid foundation for next season made possible by the Coaching Team of Sarah “Fuzzy” Clear, Dave “DC” Clear and Warren “Becks” Beckwith. Just two further Academy sessions remain on both the 14th and 28th February 2019 with a wind up to follow towards the end of the season; date TBC.
Despite restricting Bayswater-Morley to 170, our 17s had a shocking collapse and were dismissed for just 82. Sam Williams (3/30) was the star with the ball, while Lachie “Hendo” Henderson top scored with 28.
Our 15s were defending 159, but unfortunately Bayswater-Morely romped it in with 8 wickets in hand, led by Elijah Ward-Armstrong (139*). The Bears finished with a mamoth 2/270.
Banished to the field at Kingsway 1, Wanneroo restricted Joondalup to 175 from 50 overs. Adam “Jerry” Lewis (3/26) and M “Billie Jean” Lonnie (3/35) trucked hard with the ball.
Despite a valiant effort with the bat, the Roos fell 17 runs short, reaching 5/158 after 50 overs. Runs were shared with six batsmen scoring 17 or more, but none could kick on to reach 30+.
The youngest Roos won the toss and elected to field, which was an excellent decision as they dismissed Joondalup for just 80. Reece “Texas Ranger” Walker was the hero with the ball, taking 4/5 off 4.3 overs.
The Roos cruised to victory with 7 wickets in hand, with runs shared. Well done 13s!

Well done girls!
The mighty Roos are half-way through their two day clash vs. Bayswater-Morley, with some fantastic team and individual performances around the grounds.
1st Grade need to take 5/43 to claim first innings points at Kingsway 1. After being dismissed for 148, the Roos reduced the Bears to 5/104 overnight, with Matt “Dzoidberg” Dzodzos taking 3/7 in a destructive spell.
After slumping to 7/83, an outstanding performance by James “Jimmy the Pirate” Dicarlo rescued his team with 88 not out, thrilling spectators with his trademark wrist-flicking through the on-side at will. Salvaging 166, the Wanneroo bowlers wreaked havoc at Hillcrest lower as Bayswater-Morley slumped to 7/83 (the same score as the Roos were earlier in the day, but it’s unlikely Jimmy Dicarlo will bat for the Bears). The chief destroyer was Adam “The Doorknocker” Smith with a stunning 3/10 off 10 overs.
The Magees dismissed Bayswater-Morley for 210, with John “Hiding in 3s” Walter taking 4/72 and Tyler “Questionable Tatts” Ong taking 3/35. The bears are 0/18 in reply.
The Roos compiled a very competitive 237 at Hillcrest Upper, with young Jack “Jacky M” Maraldo racking up 58 and Aryan “AG DeVilliers” Varsani supporting with 42.
Wanneroo restricted Bayswater-Morley to 170, led by Sam “Venus” Williams with 3/30.
Batting first at Hillcrest Upper, our 15s battled hard for 159, with Cody “Billy C” Billington top scoring with 33.
