Scarborough win back-to-back in Premier Cricket, moving to seventh on the ladder

SCARBOROUGH continued their finals push with back-to-back wins over the weekend, helping them move up to seventh on the Premier Cricket ladder.

Premier Cricket resumed with back-to-back one-day fixtures on Saturday and Sunday after the two-week Christmas break.

The Gulls enjoyed their return with victories over flag hopefuls Joondalup and mid-table Bayswater-Morley in rounds 9 and 10 respectively.

Anthony Del Borrello inspired the 47-run win over Bayswater-Morley at Abbett Park with 90 on a tough day for the batsmen.

Del Borrello was the key for Scarborough’s 188, which proved too much for the Bears, who regularly lost wickets.

Ed Barnard starred with three wickets, while Andrew Tye strangled the batsmen with 1-12 from seven overs.

On Saturday, Englishman Barnard had a day out with two wickets and match-winning 92 n.o. as the Gulls chased down Joondalup’s strong total of 7-244 with nine balls to spare. Andrew Rule also took 3-45.
