Centurions fall to Freo

JOONDALUP’S hopes of a top-two finish for the WACA first grade season were dashed by a Fremantle side featuring four WA cricketers, including Mitch Marsh and Michael Hogan, over the weekend.

Play continues at Stevens Reserve West this Saturday with the home side leading at 6-207 having disposed of the Centurions for 172.

Michael Swart led by example to top Joondalup’s batting figures with a captain’s knock of 74. Australian under-19 batsman Jaron Morgan (44) provided the only other notable score, with seven Centurions failing to make double figures.

The State experience of Hogan came to the fore as the paceman went on to take 4-34.

He combined with fellow quick Tim Miles (5-46) to create a nine-wicket pace onslaught.

A century to Fremantle opener Daniel Kennedy (112) drove the home side’s innings, with Marsh (23) delivering below expectations at semi-professional level.

Out-of-favour WA gloveman Tom Triffit (27) made a start, before falling to Centurions part-timer Randall Starr who was impressive with 3-24 off just five overs.

WA rookie Ashton Turner remained not out on three at stumps. Josh Anderson took 2-47 including the prize wicket of Marsh.

Joondalup is looking to finish the season in third, with 13 points separating the side from second-placed Claremont-Nedlands. The Centurions are safely clear of fourth-placed Subiaco Floreat.
