6th Grade are at home to Jandakot Park, lost the toss and bowled really well to have the visitors all out for 173. We had them reeling at 5/21 but some late order batting has set the Tigers a competitive score to chase next week. Top bowlers were Jackson Curthoys with 5/38 Shane Wood 2/21 and Sohail Razzaq 2/14. Good luck in the run chase next week.

ODE had a tough fought game against undefeated Bicton/Attadale away from home.

Our batsman then chased down the total in a strong fashion with Stuart Riseley 75 and Darren Third 22, putting on 83 for the 3rd wicket and setting us up for a comfortable chase. Connor McGinty 24no put the icing on the cake with a sold knock at the end. 3 wins in a row has solidified our place in the four. Keep it up boys.
