Sky Blues face their Demons: WACA Premier Cricket

PERTH Cricket Club dominated their local derby against South Perth with first innings points earned on day one at Richardson Park in Premier Cricket on Saturday.

The high-flying Demons will chase outright points next round after outplaying the Sky Blues on the first day of their two-day Round Six clash.

South Perth were bowled out for 122 with Perth at 1-156 in reply with in-form Jonathan Wells (63*) and debutant Tom Casey (65*) at the crease.

It’s a dream debut for Casey, who forced his way into the Perth First Grade side after three fifties and a century in the past four games in Second Grade.

Earlier, Ryan Duffield claimed 4-23, with Michael Grzinic (2-38) and Liam Guthrie (2-38) in strong support.

WA Under-19’s captain Brooke Guest provided the only resistance with 37 as South Perth lost captain Hugh Brown (golden duck) and the in-form Trent Ovens (10) cheaply.

Nathan Keoh (24) and Antony Radunovich (21) tried to halt the demise but upon their departures, South Perth lost 4-0.
