Cricket: Kwinana second grade on top after imposing day one, but other grades have mixed efforts

KWINANA’S second grade batsmen set a commanding total on day one at home against Willetton Crows as fifth grade struggled in the field.

Kurt Verdonk stared yet again with the bat for second grade making 47 after Willetton put Kwinana into bat.

Kwinana dominated the innings with great partnerships and plenty of boundaries including nine fours from Zac Boddy (45).

The middle order scored the bulk of the runs, allowing the tail to push the final total to 253.

Tight bowling and fielding on day two could result in Kwinana walking away with a victory.

Fifth grade has a tough run chase ahead after a loose day in the field against Cannington Tigers.

After losing the toss Kwinana started well having Cannington 5-105 but an outstanding innings of 105 from Simon Jorgensen and some late order hitting saw Cannington get away from Kwinana and make 306.

Aaron Kirby claimed the best figures of 2-56 from 17.3 overs.

Both games will be completed on Saturday, November 11.

One-day Cs continued their return to form with a 52-run win over CBC.

Kwinana won the toss and batted first but struggled early before captain Steve Nichols (88) and Luke Collins (50) steadied the innings with plenty of boundaries and pushed Kwinana’s total 237.

Kwinana came out with plenty of energy and it paid off early with CBC in trouble at 3-16.

Bronson Spencer (94 not out) did his best to try and save the innings but Kwinana was just too good in the end bowling CBC out for 185.

Rob Taylor picked up 3-31.

One-day Fs were valiant in defeat against Kardinya Lakes away from home.

After losing the toss Kwinana bowled first.

Again extras were costly and allowed Kardinya to reach 6-193.

Youngster Ali Gharibyar took 3-48.

Kwinana put together great partnerships to be in with a chance and Nicholas Tolotti hit his way to 41 not out but it was not enough with Kwinana falling 23 runs short on 8-170.
