Cricket: four from four for Thornlie

THORNLIE Cricket Club have celebrated four wins from four games over a superb weekend of action.

After finishing last week’s two-day match all out for 150, Thornlie’s Fourth Grade side produced a great bowling performance to claim the points over Willetton.

Despite beginning the day on 0-32, Willetton were terrorised by Guy Hoskin (4-23) and Chris Kell (3-32).

Willetton were dismissed for 137 to give Thornlie the victory.

The One Day A side travelled to Mills Park to play Kenwick and restricted them to just 79.

Cris Bayliss (3-32) and Iffam Samidon (3-31) were Thornlie’s best, while Scott Cooper (55) and Todd Tuffin (42) helped them to 8-226 in the ensuing run chase.

Things looked shaky when they fell to 4-44 after 10 overs, but a 104- run partnership for the fifth wicket between Troy McDonnell and Kevin Attree got the Lions back on track and helped them to finish on 7-192.

Jandakot were dismissed for 105 thanks to Bryan Williams (5-22) and Simon Smith (3-22).

The One Day F team sensationally claimed honours over Armadale with a final-ball victory.

After Matthew Marshall took 4-25 in Armadale’s 9-133 inings, Thornlie looked down and out at 9-101.

However, debutant Liam Campbell stood tall and Trevor Bennett scored 28, including the winning runs on the final ball.
