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.
