JOONDALUP could be in the WA Premier Cricket top six after its two-day match against Fremantle but will need at least four other contests to go its way.

The Centurions are 10th on 47 points; just seven points shy of sixth-placed Subiaco Floreat.

But they’ll also need University (seventh), Bayswater Morley (eighth) and Rockingham-Mandurah (ninth) to lose if they’re to advance with a 10-point first innings win. Joondalup was chasing 185 for victory on day two against Mt Lawley at Iluka last Saturday.

The side overcame a sluggish start to win with a whopping 334 off the back of centuries to Garrick Morgan (114 n.o.) and Joe Inglis (106).

The side was 7-95 before Morgan worked with Josh Anderson for a 61-run eighth-wicket stand and Inglis for a mammoth 167-run ninth-wicket partnership.

Inglis was particularly brutal on the Mt Lawley attack, belting nine sixes on his way to a century from just 54 balls.
