The Golden Roo was within grasp for the 2nd week in a row, as 1st Grade to 3rd Grade tasted sweet victory against Subiaco Floreat.
1st Grade chased down Subiaco Floreat’s 225 with six wickets in hand on the back of a classy 138 from Max “You Gotta Know When To” Holden.
2nd grade won the toss and chose to bowl. Wickets proved hard which shifted the focus to containing runs. A great effort in the field left Subi 8/228 with Josh “POTUS” Quelch and Deon “Lando” Billington taking 2 each and John “Kronkite, ” Walter and Mike “Softer or” Ardagh drying up the runs. After losing 2 early wickets the following week, Jacob “BAS Brother” Johnston and Haydn “Dubious Salad” Slodecki put on a 3rd wicket stand of 120 to get the team into a winning position. After Slodecki departed for a well made 62 Johnston went on to bat right through the innings, getting the team the win late in the day and making a brilliant 103* with some good support from Riley “Holly Riley” Holly and Walter.
3rd Grade toiled hard in the field, restricting Subiaco Floreat to 172 led by Donnie “Brasco” Fryer (3/41). Donnie was supported well by Jordan “Bagus” Slattery (2/33), Matt “Purse-strings” Purcell (2/21) and Tim “James” Bond (2/36). In reply Michael “Just Say No to Hally” Kelsey made a dominant 49 to set up victory, followed by a grinding 60 run partnership by Allan “Matador” Hall (37) and Bond (42). Wanneroo passed the score six wickets down before Graeme “Junk Time” Atkinson rubbed salt into the wound with an effortless 55.
4th Grade bowled out Subi for 173 let by Saleem “Rigasaurus” Ahmed (3/41) but couldn’t get going with the bat to be dismissed for 119.
In the Juniors, the 17s suffered an embarrassing loss to Subi as they were bowled out for just 66 chasing 197 (Jared Maunder 4/27).
The 15s ensured that honours with Subi were split down the middle, scoring 222 (Aryan Varsani 53, Jack McDonald 72) before bowling out Subi for 159 (Jesse Haddrill 3/19, Harrison Kepinski 3/22).
