ROCKINGHAM-Mandurah recorded a strong victory over Perth in round 14 of the WA Premier Cricket season.
The 111-run win was built on Dane Ugle’s century on day 1 and backed up by the bowling unit who immediately closed the door on the Demons at Lark Hill last Saturday.
In pursuit of the Mariners’ ominous 333, Perth were on their heels at 3-25 courtesy of Matt France’s opening salvo.
Playing his seventh first grade match, the young opener took out two of Perth’s top four batsmen for golden ducks to claim 3-34.
Leon Coombs finished the rout with his best figures of the season taking 4-50 from 16 overs.
His reverse swing ripped out the stubborn late order sinking the Demons from 5-175 to all out 222.
Craig Simmons played a steady support role with his 27.3 overs yielding 2-65.
The Mariners can not claim sixth spot from Perth with just this week’s one-dayer against Fremantle to finish the season, but they can be well pleased with how they have fought the season out, saluting in six of their seven home matches at Lark Hill.
