WACA Premier Cricket: Tim David dominates with bat and ball as Claremont-Nedlands go top

CLAREMONT-NEDLANDS has moved to the top of the Premier Cricket table after an emphatic outright victory over University at James Oval headlining round five on Saturday.

The Tigers remain unbeaten and are the team to beat, after scoring the rare outright victory on the back of a wonderful all-round game from Tim David.

David followed his five-wicket haul in the first innings with a dominant 136 not out to put the rest of the competition on notice.

Debutant Kip Cameron was impressive with a half-century while Jim Allenby chimed in with 43.

The Tigers finished at 3-297, before bowling the Students out again for a paltry 115.

Player-coach Tim McDonald took three wickets early as he and Keagan Africa reduced the hosts to 5-7.

Dan Turkich cleaned up the tail to take three wickets as the Tigers recorded the rare milestone.

Harry Podmore again played a lone hand with 44 for Uni while Scott Marshall scored 35.

Subiaco Floreat was outdone in a narrow fixture against Willetton at Burrendah Reserve, with Tim Monteleone playing a lone hand for the visitors.

Monteleone hammered 73 from 71 balls including 14 boundaries as his side fell short of the target.

Youngster Hamish McKenzie showed promise in his debut, making 22 with the bat before taking two wickets in the second innings.
