WANNEROO have momentum heading into tomorrow’s clash against Willetton after a dominant one-day win to open its WA Premier Cricket campaign.

The Roos face the Dragons in their first game of the year at Kingsway in another one-day contest.

Last Saturday’s encounter against Fremantle was played with reduced overs because of inclement weather.

An undermanned Fremantle side, which lost multiple players to the domestic one-day competition, managed 7-104, with the Roos chasing it down in the 25th over for a six-wicket win at Stevens Reserve.

Wanneroo paceman Jack Cattrall performed strongly in his return to the club from Claremont-Nedlands, taking 3-26 off six overs.

WA rookie Matt Spoors was best with the bat for the Roos, striking 47.

Fremantle captain Brayden Sutton top-scored for the Port Boys with 35.

JOONDALUP ON THE REBOUND

JOONDALUP will look to bounce back in its second game of the WA Premier Cricket season after a 44-run loss to University.

The Centurions face Midland-Guildford at Iluka on Saturday.

The side fell for 211 chasing 8-255 at James Oval last weekend.

University’s Max Hope (67) and Will Bosisto (97) produced an impressive 125-run second wicket stand, which proved to be the difference.

Joondalup’s Simon Branston took 3-46.

Centurions captain Michael Johnson top scored with 57, while opener Jaron Morgan struck 55.

The visitors looked on target at 5-165 but lost their final five wickets for just 35 runs.
