WACA Premier Cricket: Subiaco Floreat and Claremont-Nedlands enjoy wins

SUBIACO Floreat Cricket Club was left frustrated after falling narrowly short of an outright win against last-placed University at Floreat Park Oval in Premier Cricket on Saturday.

Subi’s Andrew Holder was the star taking a 10-wicket haul, as University finished 9-149 in their second innings, after they had made 123 on the first day with Subi declaring at 8-270 in reply.

Holder took four second innings wickets with Ash Blake and Chris Hansberry taking two each.

A match saving 65 from Max Hope and 33 from Matt Birrell kept their side from complete embarrassment as it narrowly avoided outright defeat, leaving Subi frustrated.

Earlier, Aaron Lilly was the star with the bat, making 115 from 162 deliveries.

Chris Hansberry hit a quick-fire 68, while Harry Podmore took four wickets to continue his consistent year.

Claremont-Nedlands remains top of the Premier Cricket table despite narrowly missing a second straight outright victory against Wanneroo at Cresswell Park.

A rearguard innings from young star Matt Spoors was enough for the Roos to pass the Tigers first innings score.

Keagan Africa finished with nine wickets for the game, while Jack Cattrall and Dan Turkich took a wicket each.

In Female A Grade T20 competition on Sunday, University suffered a 100-run defeat to Melville while Subiaco Floreat had the bye.

There are only two games to go now until the Women’s Big Bash League starts.
