Swan View look to bounce back

AN undefeated Roleystone Karragullen travel to Brown Park this weekend to take on Swan View hoping John Lewis and Trent Stuart continue their good form with the ball.

Swan View will want to bounce back from their poor performance against Ellenbrook and will need to improve with both the bat and the ball if they are to claim victory.

Ellenbrook, who will hope to continue their good from last weekend, play Lesmurdie Mazenod at home.

Josh Cannell will be the key again for Ellenbrook with the bat, while Paul Richardson is in white hot form for Lesmurdie with the ball.

Lesmurdie will hope their strong batting line up will put in a stronger performance this time.

The final game is at Clayton View Primary where Helena Valley take on Forrestfield.

Both teams are chasing their first win of the season and the two sides will be looking for a better performance with the bat as both have struggled so far this season.

Last Sunday Swan Helena District Cricket Association’s best took on North Suburban at Lilac Hill.

North Suburban got off to a flying start and Swan Helena was immediately on the back foot but their bowlers were able to pull the game back and Chidlow’s Steve Fuller took three wickets to restrict North Suburban to 8-190.

In reply Swan Helena started well with Lesmurdie Mazenod’s Tim McQuoid scoring 45 and Swan View’s Dave Catania (31) but Swan Helena was unable to maintain the run rate and finished 5-150.

The next association match is on Sunday, November 13 at Murdoch against South Metro and the association will be wanting to pick their best side to get back on the winner’s list.

Last Saturday Darlington stole victory from Lesmurdie Mazenod at Ray Owen.

Lesmurdie was cruising to the victory target of 188 with Seb Lowe scoring 53 and Nic Daxter 44 before Darlington upped the ante with Jarrod Quinn claiming 3-9 to dismiss Lesmurdie for 185.

At Cross Park Helena Valley put in a fighting effort after being 5-52 with Adam Johnson (30) and Glen Downing (40) pushing them  towards Roleystone’s 164 but John Lewis was the difference claiming 5-39 ensuring victory for the home side.

The Ellenbrook Rangers at home were too strong for Swan View who were always going to find it difficult to defend their low total of 148.

The Rangers did it easy with former association champion Josh Cannell hitting 94, Nathan Bull 48 not out, Joel Portelli 42 and Kevin Ginn 33.

Jordan Howell toiled hard for Swan View claiming 3-78.
