The RV Solutions Weekend Wrap - Week 16

1st Grade

1st grade overcame some batting wobbles to defeat Rockingham-Mandurah by 4 wickets at Burrendah.

The Dragons resumed at 1 for 47 in pursuit of the Mariner’s total of 172, with Shayne Wornes adding 7 to his overnight total, departing for 29.

A move down the order didn’t bring a change in luck for Blair Walsh, who edged behind for 1.

John Sanders grinded in partnership with Iszak Milentis, facing 84 balls for his 14 runs before he fell LBW.

Kallen Bond and Luke Holt then edged into the cordon to create some nerves as the Dragons slumped to 6 for 123, still 49 runs in arrears of their target.

Milentis and Oliver Arkinstall took to the task, with an unbroken 50 run 7th wicket partnership securing the win.

Milentis brought up a fine hundred with a smash down the ground, a crucial innings in a game where the next highest score was 38.

2nd Grade

2nd grade capitalised on last week’s strong start to chalk up a huge 9 wicket win over Rockingham-Mandurah at Lark Hill.

Resuming at none for 52 with a further 104 runs required for victory, Ethan Smith added 8 runs to his overnight total before being run out for 31 - a forgivable result, given he arrived at the ground in the nick of time on the back of a morning hundred for the Under 17’s.

From there, Sean Boers and Liam Hindle patiently knocked off the remaining runs to secure an elusive win.

The pair opened the shoulders from there, and some big hitting saw both bring up their maiden senior hundreds for the club in spectacular fashion, with Ellis Cassidy declaring the innings closed at 1 for 253.

A fanciful attempt at an outright win didn’t bear much fruit, with the Mariners easing to 81 without loss before the teams shook hands.

3rd Grade

3rd Grade wrapped up a comprehensive win over Rockingham-Mandurah, winning by 6 wickets.

The Dragons had an early wobble after resuming at 2 for 35 in pursuit of the Mariner’s total of 110, with Dev Singh and Ben Witschge departing early to reduce the score to 4 for 58.

From there, Bevan Hargrave and Blake Third were outstanding, getting the team over the line and more with a 104 run 5th wicket partnership.

After Third departed for 37, captain Cameron Becker came to the crease to attempt to shepherd Hargrave through to a century, but he was unfortunately run out for 98, signalling the end of the game.

4th Grade

4th grade ensured a clean sweep of senior wins with a 4 wicket win over Rockingham-Mandurah.

Resuming at 1 for 18 in pursuit of the Mariner’s score of 164, nightwatchman Jarod Bridge departed early for 14.

Strong efforts from Raghav Raj (60) and Apurv Sharma (32) saw the Dragons get within striking distance, before Keegan de Koker (39) got the visitors over the line.

Wickets then quickly fell as the Dragons were bowled out for 184, with captain Aaron McCall electing not to bowl again.

Under 17’s

A fantastic batting effort saw the Under 17’s beat Rockingham-Mandurah by 5 wickets at Burrendah.

Chasing a target of 233 for victory, the effort was underpinned by a 159 run opening stand between Ethan Smith (105*) and Brayden Lee (55).

After locking in a win, Kyall Roach (41 from 33 deliveries) and Lagan Sandhu (22 from 20 deliveries) swung the bat around to add some emphasis to the result.

Under 15’s

Under 15’s also picked up a win, bowling Rockingham-Mandurah out for 134 to secure a 33 run win.

Defending last week’s total of 167, the Dragons produced a well rounded effort with the ball, with Isaak Wittkuhn (2/12 from 4 overs) the only multiple wicket taker.

Pavasan Govender (1/5 from 5 overs), Luke Herbert (1/17 from 8 overs), Ben Mitchell (1/21 from 9 overs), Blake Stephen (1/28 from 5 overs), and Veedi Pelpola (1/31 from 9.3 overs) all chipped in with wickets.
