FRESH from Big Bash League success with the Adelaide Strikers, Jonathan Wells played a remarkable innings of 201 not out for Perth at Fletcher Park on Saturday.

Chasing 250 and trying to shore up a finals position, the Demons lost two early wickets before a 228 partnership between Wells and the in-form Luke Jury (82) saw Perth comfortably home over Bayswater-Morley with 4-353.

Wells brought up his double century in the last over, off 255 balls, being the highest personal score this season in the Premier Cricket competition.

Second Grade did not have enough runs to defend although Alex Calmy with 5-36 was valiant in the loss.

There was high drama in Third Grade as a Liam Thomas direct hit for a run out saw Perth win by two runs.

Alex Snadden did the work with the ball picking up 4-48.

Fourth Grade’s season is only playing for pride now after their loss, although Brenton Williams with three wickets and Bik Bhoumick (63) did well for the Demons.
