Melville Cricket Club fighting to stay in top six

MELVILLE’S position in the top six is on the line when the Storm travel to Floreat Park to take on Subiaco-Floreat in Premier Cricket round 14 this weekend.

A washout on Saturday prevented Melville from chasing outright victory against Perth.

With just two rounds to play, the Storm is yet to cement a finals berth.

Seventh-placed Subiaco-Floreat is just one point behind Melville and will enter the game on a high after compiling nearly 400 on the way to a crushing defeat of Midland-Guildford in round 13.

With 597 so far this season, including six half-centuries and a ton, Lions’ opener Alexander Malcolm has anchored Subiaco-Floreat’s batting line-up.

He has been far from a lone hand however, with both Aaron Lilly (477) and Calum How (467) among the competition’s top 15 scorers.

With the ball, Subiaco-Floreat has been led by Andrew Holder, whose 34 scalps is equal first with Fremantle’s Chris Chellew.
