26 February 2017  

Joel Paris in action for Claremont-Nedlands against Scarborough // John Sherry


Claremont-Nedlands have clinched the Kevin Sullivan Silver Cup for the Minor Premiership, while the top six has been decided for the 2016-17 season as Round 14 of the Alchol.Think Again Premier Cricket season concluded.
 

Victories to South Perth and Subiaco Floreat confirmed their top six spots, with the Lions knocking off Melville on Saturday by five runs at Floreat Park Oval to clinch their place.

South Perth shocked second-placed Fremantle at Richardson Park on Saturday, and will join Claremont-Nedlands, the Port Boys, Perth, Joondalup and Subiaco Floreat in the finals.

Eighth-placed Scarborough’s shock win over Claremont-Nedlands wasn’t enough to keep them in contention.

Despite the defeat, Claremont-Nedlands have won the Kevin Sullivan Silver Cup as minor premiers, while Fremantle and Perth will finish second and third respectively and will host semi-finals.

The order of the final three placings among the top six will be determined in Round 15’s one-day fixtures with Claremont-Nedlands to play South Perth and Fremantle to host Perth.

Joondalup are away to Bayswater-Morley and Subiaco Floreat travels to Wanneroo. 

Midland-Guildford will receive the wooden spoon after losing to Rockingham-Mandurah, with fellow sides Bayswater-Morley and Gosnells now turning their attention to next season.

Wanneroo collected a consolation win against Mount Lawley, with sides now tested with the majority of their overseas players heading home to play County Cricket. 

Bayswater-Morley 343 (Guy 132, Philippe 88, Thomason 6-76) defeated Gosnells 254 (Reece 80, Leipold 65, Rimmington 4-58), Sutherlands Park

Bayswater-Morley has collected a consolation win at Sutherlands Park, beating Gosnells by 89 runs and ending the finals hopes of the home side. Chasing 343 was always going to be challenging and losing early wickets at the hands of Nathan Rimmington made it even harder. Luis Reece showed his class with 80 and Matt Leopold smashed 65 to play a lone hand in the run chase. Rimmington finished with four wickets as Gosnells were bowled out for 254. Liam O’Connor captured three wickets himself, while Jonty Wilde collected two. Both sides will play their final games of the season next weekend.

Mount Lawley 245 (Taylor 43, Smith 41, Dzodzos 4-35) defeated by Wanneroo 314 (King 72, Nylander 62, Taylor 3-84), Breckler Park

Wanneroo will finish their season with momentum after a dominant victory over Mount Lawley at Breckler Park. Dan Lawrence extended his run scoring form before departing Perth with 46, while youngsters Tristan Hobley and Bailey Nylander both scored half centuries. Jordan King lit up the game lit to smash an unbeaten 72, as the Roos cruised past 245 to finish the game all out for 314. Callum Taylor was the pick of the bowlers for Mount Lawley with three wickets, with Liam Purdy also important with two. Finals are well and truly out of the equation for both sides.

Midland-Guildford 260 & 7-115 (Donald 49, Baker 23, Done 4-36) defeated by Rockingham-Mandurah 6-394 (Green 151, Ugle 139, Muucciarone 3-103), Lark Hill

Rockingham-Mandurah has avoided the wooden spoon for the 2016-17 season after a vital partnership guided the Mariners to a victory over Midland-Guildford at Lark Hill. Mitch Green (151) and Dane Ugle (139) both scored outstanding centuries and combined for a 237-run stand to push the home side to 6-394. Ugle smashed 18 boundaries and four sixes in his 116-ball knock to showcase his talent going into next season. Green was more patient hitting 25 fours to continue his strong form for the year. Ashley Mucciarone was the best of the Swans bowlers with three wickets. The Mariners leapfrog the visitors with an unassailable seven-point lead separating the sides.

Claremont-Nedlands 250 (Hobson 112, Allenby 46, Rule 4-70) defeated by Scarborough 4-336 (Robinson 100no, Barnard 96, Hobson 1-14), Abbett Park

Claremont-Nedlands has clinched the Kevin Sullivan Silver Cup for the minor premiership despite going down to Scarborough at Abbett Park. With Fremantle losing the Tigers cannot be caught and will host the first final in a fortnight's time. The Gulls batting was immense, with Wes Robinson scoring an unbeaten century to guide the hosts to 4-336. Ed Barnard scored 96 in his last game for the side to finish a terrific campaign. The win wasn’t enough for the Gulls as they miss out on the finals for this season. Matt Kelly was the pick of the Tigers bowlers, with part timers Travis Birt and Nick Hobson gathering a wicket each.

Subiaco Floreat 9-305 (Green 83, Malcolm 54, Turner 2-17) defeated Melville 300 (Scollay 70, Bowdler 61, Hansberry 4-75), Floreat Park Oval

Subiaco Floreat will play finals this season after a dramatic victory over Melville earned the side a top six spot at Floreat Park Oval. Chris Hansberry was vital for the hosts bowling his side to victory with four wickets. Chasing 305, the Storm lost wickets at crucial times and eventually needed 10 runs from their final partnership. Hansberry collected the final wicket, as the Storm was bowled out for 300, just five runs short. Skipper Tom Scollay was superb with 70, with Matt Bowdler showing fantastic support with 61 to get his side close. However, Andrew Holder chimed in with two wickets as Subiaco Floreat clinched the crucial fixture and can climb as high as fifth with one round remaining.

South Perth 5-366 & 1-21 (Guest 8no, Birchall 8no, Chellew 1-12) defeated Fremantle 143 (Chellew 31, Sutton 28, Huckett 4-19), Richardson Park

South Perth has caused a major upset and in the process secured their finals position with a clutch victory over Fremantle at Richardson Park. Cam Huckett was the chief destroyer for the Sky Blues with 4-19, as the Port Boys were rolled for 143, ending their tilt at top spot. Huckett was well supported by Sam Birchall, who claimed multiple top-order wickets. The Port Boys had no answer falling to 5-36 before eventually being bowled out. Chris Chellew top scored with 31, with Brayden Sutton making 28. Fremantle will now compete in the finals from second spot, while South Perth will hope to cling onto fifth spot in the final round.

University 172 & 1-55 (O’Brien 20, Bosisto 20, Nicholas 1-13) defeated by Perth 221 (Sibley 63, Moreton 54, Dallimore 3-35), Fletcher Park

Perth has secured their top three spot with an unconvincing win over University at Fletcher Park. Chasing 172, Perth limped over the line to make 221 all out. Dom Sibley was patient at the top of the order with 63, with Dain Moreton batting for 145 balls to make 54. Josh Dallimore and Sean Stuart ripped through the order to take three wickets each and make the scoreboard respectable. Will Bosisto and Alex Rose both managed two wickets each for the visitors. Perth will finish third and in a strong position to make a premiership tilt. University will finish their season next weekend.

Willetton 9-342 (Knoll 73no, Johnston 59, Hinchliffe 4-90) defeated Joondalup 269 (Hinchliffe 59, Morgan 56, Hanna 4-68), Iluka

Willetton has managed an upset but will not compete in the finals this season after making short work of Joondalup at Iluka Sport Complex. After being named 12th man for the state side, Darcy Short returned to torment the Centurions collecting four wickets to bowl the Dragons to victory. Matt Hanna did the damage for the quicks taking four wickets, as Joondalup were bowled out for 269. Clint Hinchliffe continued his good week with 59 and Garrick Morgan was again solid at the top of the order with 56. Despite Mitch Dixon scoring 37, the side couldn’t manage 342. The Centurions will now battle it out for either fourth, fifth or sixth spot with a round to play.
