Our female Roo’s secured another comprehensive win in Round 4 at home on Kingsway 1 v Midland Guildford. Our opening bowlers, Danni Eckley and Emma Schonfeldt started with a flourish with Danni snagging 2 wickets and Emma the 1. The pressure continued with another impressive display from Emilie Nicholls who took 2 wickets conceding just a single with the additional support bowling from Renae Bugg, Emma Wilson and Mathilda Stillitano all nicking a wicket a piece. Our ground fielding again required a collective acknowledgement and nod of approval from those watching with Renae Bugg rounding off a fine game with a run out alongside further run outs from Shayna Jesani and Eva Salisbury reducing Midland to a modest total of 59.
Tene Crafford carried her bat for a well-deserved 35 having lost Shayna Jesani leg before for 7. Emilie Nicholls alongside Tene saw the Roos’ home in the 14th over completing another carefully constructed chase down with Emilie ending on 12 not out.
We welcome back Emma Harvey from her short stay in New Zealand next week and look forward to meeting Subi Floreat for the first time this season as we embark on 3 away game journey during Rounds 5, 6 and 7.

We traveled to Hillcrest to take on Baysie on a great afternoon for cricket, won the toss and had a bat. Riley Gillespie and Blake Holly put on an excellent opening partnership of 56 before Riley was unlucky to be given out. A steady stream of wickets continued to fall through the middle order before our lower order in Owen Brown, Jono Roberts and Callum Wilde stuck around to bat out the overs for 156. Blake top scored with 64.
Going out to field to defend a below par score, Baysie started well and the openers were still in at drinks and doing it easy. After a rev up by Coach Jimmy the boys picked it up and created some opportunities in the field. The squeeze was put on by our spinners in Matt Carroll, Tarun Jessani and Ben Carmignani. Scoreboard pressure was too much for the Baysie boys and they were bowled out for 126. Ben was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 18 off 9 and Tyler Brown picked up the last couple with four run outs. A gutsy win by the boys to go 2 and 0 with still plenty to work on.
The Roos U13’s traveled out to Hillcrest to take on the Baysie Bears in the Inverarity Shield on what was a hot Sunday afternoon. After winning the toss we had a bat and made a solid start of 2 for 62 after 20 and we were in a good position to push this forward but the Baysie spinners tied us up a bit and we probably ended up 30-40 runs short of where we were hoping at 4 /125. Xander Glamazima carried his bat through the 40 overs to remain 45 not out and Hayden Cavanagh made 22 at No.3. Our bowling group was ready for the challenge and came out firing Jake O’Shea bowled with good pace and great areas but was too good to even get a nick. After 20 overs they were just behind us at the same time but the Baysie batsmen managed to step it up in the second 20 and come out on top comfortably in the end. Josh Redman bowled 7 quality overs of leg spin and along with our Captain Jake O’Shea were the best of our bowlers on the day. There was some quality cricket played but we let ourselves down in some key areas that we will keep working on at training. We now look forward to our next game where we will again be giving it our best.
