Cricket: Petrie knock guides shaky Armadale to 178

Armadale played East Freo in its first grade clash at Gwynne Park and batted first.

In deep trouble at 2-7, 3-35 and 4-68, Jeff Petrie stood tall with Damien Carroll (30) before Chad Forsyth teamed up with Petrie, who batted sublimely for 57.

Just as Armadale seemed to be getting back on top at 5-159, a collapse saw Forsyth stranded on 32 not out as Armadale was dismissed for 178.

In reply, East Freo went to stumps at 0-41.
