Mixed fortunes for the Roos this round, with Threes delivering a firm victory with lots of eye-contact, several poised games (and one potential trouncing) abandoned, Ones falling short for the first time this season and the ever reliable Women storming onward.
Subiaco Floreat 7/220 def. Wanneroo 10/174
Sun was out on a glorious first day at Floreat Park and the skipper played his role to win the toss and bat on what looked like a very good wicket. The top order struggled early collapsing to 3/20 in the first session before Trav ‘ol’ reliable’ Birt and Josh ‘free’ Mason stabilised through the middle of the innings, with the later scoring his first fifty for the club, a patient and well compiled 62. There was some late striking from the ‘more Christopher’ Quelch to get the team up to 174, which although the wicket turned out to be a little ‘two paced,’ was certainly under par. We were able to pick up 2 wickets prior to the end of day 1 leaving Subiaco 2/43 overnight heading into the second.
The bowlers toiled hard in week 2 without much luck on what was a very slow wicket given the amount of rainfall in the previous few days. Subiaco-Floreat were risk averse and ended up the passing the score with 4 wickets in hand, with the pick of the bowlers being Kyle ‘Jenny Craig’ Millar (3/49) and also a notable mention to Smudger who consistently created chances. All in all it was a disappointing but competitive loss in the One’s first two day game, which they will build from and charge into round 6 against South Perth.

Wanneroo 0/42 (harshly) drew Subiaco Floreat 10/119
Rocking up to Kingsway 2 on a hot day knowing our Illustrious Leader Carroll had won the past three democratic coin tosses, the ‘Elite 4s’ were more than confident of legitimately winning a fourth term and batting. Not to be, he lost – so Subiaco-Floreat put us into bowl.
They must have immediately regretted that decision in the most Sri Lanka v Australia sort of way, as Yaseen “Mo” Afridi got the boys off to a flyer taking 2 wickets from the first 2 balls of the match. . After a 3rd wicket partnership from the visitors, Dom got the breakthrough to have the visitors 3/31 and in real deep trouble. Some quality chat from Jacob ‘new rig’ Bonner got in the heads of the Subiaco boys and they fell away from their platform of 5/82 to ultimately be bowled out for 119 after 54 overs. Yaseen ended with figures of 4/15 from 9 overs.
We had 21 overs left Tim “Ellen DeGeneres” Harris and Jacob ‘ex-Dictator’ Bonner went out to bat. Showing Subiaco-Floreat how to bat they got through to stumps with a delicious score of 0/42. From such a commanding position nothing short of adverse weather conditions would be able to prevent their swift and decisive victory the following week.
Day 2 abandoned due to adverse weather conditions.

Subiaco Floreat (10/39) def. by Wanneroo (4/40)
Our female Roo’s secured another comprehensive win in Round 5 away v Subi Floreat. Our opening bowlers, Emma Schonfeldt and Emilie Nicholls started well with Emilie getting an early break through. Our first change pair of Renae Bugg and Ella Stewart continuing the pressure with Renae finding a nice length with 2 wickets and Ella mixing flight with accuracy and adding a further 3 wickets from just 2 overs. Shayna Jesani and Emma Wilson finally mopped up the tail alongside the impressive Breanna Giandzi generating some good pace and reducing our hosts to a very modest 39.
A stuttering start which took a while to get going saw 3 early wickets go down to some impressive bowling from Subi. However the maturing Shayna Jesani guided also by Ella Stewart saw our female Roo’s home with the latter finishing with 14 not out.
We continue our 3 away game run at Melville next week who are unbeaten and remain top of the ladder; our ever improving Roo’s will look forward to this next challenge.
