There was plenty of action over the weekend, with our Premier T20 and Colts teams playing a blockbuster bonanza of cricket on Saturday and Sunday. Meanwhile, our Mens & Women’s 17s & 15s flew the Wanneroo flag with gusto.
Rd 2 vs. Scarborough
Batting first at Abbett Park, Haydn “Slods” Slodecki shone with the bat as his 44 carried his team to 117. Unfortunately the Roos were on the receiving end of a Hardy-Boyle combo who blasted 60 and 54 respectively and reached the runs with nearly four overs remaining and 8 wickets in hand.
Rd 3 vs. Gosnells
After some blunt words with the Man in the Mirror, our Roos put in a strong showing with the bat against Gosnells, with Haydn Slodecki backing up his Saturday effort with 60 off just 35 balls. Slods was supported well by Kyle “What’s that Funk?” Millar (38).
In reply, Gosnells looked dangerous early but after some serious grinding from all our Roo bowlers we emerged triumphant by 10 runs.
Mirroring the Premier T20 results, the Colts lost to Scarborough on Saturday before triumphing on Sunday against Gosnells. Stars of Sunday were Matt “Anthrax” Spoors (68), Riley “Buddy” Holly (32 and 2/14) and Darcy “Use The” Forssman (2/12).
Female Youth League
Our Lady Roos headed down to Lark Hill to take on Rockingham. Bowling first, we restricted the Mariners to 3/115 off their 20 overs with strong contributions for all nine of our bowlers.
With the bat we struggled early until Emma “Castaway” Wilson (20) and Kristin “Indiana” Jones (14) provided some middle-order resistance. Unfortunately we were dismissed for 97, 18 runs short.
Batting first at Kingsway, our 17s were led by Tim “Marcus” Harris (59) as we posted 5/126 off our 20 overs. In reply, Sharad “Sharon” Jessani (2/15) and Hayden “Stumpy” Stumpers (2/9) broke the Rocky top order and eventually restricted the Mariners to 9/69.
Our 15s suffered a nasty batting collapse, with only Jack “Jack” Maraldo (33) reaching double figures. In reply, Rockingham-Mandurah ground out the win with 3.5 overs remaining and 7 wickets in hand. Connor “Spanners” Spangenberg was the pick of the bowlers with the Richie Benaud-esque figures of 2/22.
