Mixed fortunes for the Roos, strong first weeks against South Perth from 1s and 4s, however the 2s and 3s have a lot of work ahead of them and the Women’s streak came to an end. In the Juniors the 13s and 14s chalked up wins against the old enemy while the 17s and 15s are both in competitive positions.

Melville 5/119(cc) def. Wanneroo 9/56(cc)
Our female Roo’s winning streak came to a halt in Round 6 away to ladder leaders Melville. Bowling first our attack did well to restrict Melville to 119-5. We have restricted Melville to their lowest totals this season reinforcing our improvement each week with our efficient bowling attack. Wickets were shared 1 a piece with Emma Schonfeldt, Josie Beckett, Renae Bugg, Ella Stewart and Emilie Nicholls.
Our batting starts have been our strength this season however today was a difficult one from which we never recovered. Coming back from 3 run outs was always going to be difficult against the strength of Melville’s bowling and in particular their fielding. A gritty 56-9 resulted in a loss for our female Roo’s who have another tough assignment next week away to South Perth.

Wanneroo Districts 4/223 def. Centurions 92
The Under 14s hosted Centurions at Kingsway on a much cooler and slightly overcast Sunday Afternoon.
Day started to plan with Captain Carroll winning his third toss in a row and electing to bat. Openers Blake and Riley started strongly maintaining a steady pace and achieving their second consecutive 50 run opening stand before Blake was dismissed chasing a wide one. Enter Tyler Brown….Big TB and Fish Gillespie proceeded to break Centurions hearts as they chalked up regular boundaries and quick singles that the visitors weren’t awake to. Tyler rode his luck as he proceeded to sky a few balls that entered the stratosphere and came down safely as the visitors dropped several catches.
As the half way point of the innings approached, Riley and Tyler had managed to craft together nice 50 Run partnership and were looking to really start to push the game along. Following the second drinks break, the run rate jumped up over 4 an over as Tyler quickly reached his 50 and Riley followed a few overs later. Eventually the partnership came to an end as the score reached 197 and Tyler was run out for an entertaining 93 from 90 balls following a minor misfield that resulted in a little hesitation from both batsmen. Shaken by the loss of his mate and almost 43 overs in the middle, Riley followed just two balls later caught behind chasing a wide one off the spinner and was dismissed for 65. Both boys were terrific in a second run partnership that amassed 145 runs in 100 minutes.
Last few overs saw contributions from Jono Roberts, Matt Skouros and a quick cameo from Owen Brown as the boys set 223 off 50 overs for the opposition to chase.
Our bowling performance couldn’t have started much better as Rhys Walker picked up 2 for 1 in the first four balls of the innings to have them on the back foot. Jordon Marinovich quickly chipped in from the other end and after two overs, the second class neighbours were in trouble at 3 for 5. Even the local Kangaroo heard the news and bounded over for a look!
Our Roo boys were on top restricting the opposition to a run rate of 2 per over after the first 12 overs before Captain Matt Carroll came on and cleaned up picking up 3 quick wickets to have them reeling at 6/35. A minor partnership formed but the boys persisted and then the end was nigh as the 7th wicket fell and the rest was history as we bowled them out for 92 in 35.1 overs.
Matt was the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 20 from 10 overs and well support by Tarun Jessani at the other end with his 1 for 25 from 10 and Rhys Walker with 2 for 19 from 8. The final two wickets were what set the two teams apart with some excellent fielding from Matt Skouros and Riley both resulting in run outs to the finish the innings. An all-round fantastic day for the boys to remain undefeated after three rounds.
Wanneroo 7/163 def. Centurions 10/105
On Sunday we played the Centurions and after our Captain Jake O’Shea won the toss we were having a bat. With Xander Glamuzina and Kai Richards opening the batting we got off to a steady start. After losing both openers Hayden Cavanagh (52) and Ben Jones (46) put on what would be a match winning partnership of 79 for the 3rd wicket. The rest of the batsmen played selflessly to push our total to a respectable 7 for 163.
Our bowling unit worked well with Jake O’Shea getting good shape and pace early to have the Centurions batsmen on the hop. Alex Van de Velde took 2 early wickets from the other end and with all the other bowlers doing their job and being backed up by excellent ground fielding and catching Centurions were bowled out for 105. Best of the bowlers were Alex Van de Velde with 3 for 19, Josh Redman 3 for 7 and Hayden Cavanagh 2 for 8.
