Kwinana’s 2nd Grade side returned to winning ways last weekend as the other grades struggle to find consistency.
2nd Grade played their first home game in a month when they took on Willetton.
After winning the toss, Kwinana bowled first and made light work of Willetton’s batsmen.
Dylan Hinchliffe, Andrew Gibbs and Rob Taylor all claimed three wickets as Kwinana bowled Willetton out for 106.
The run chase never looked in doubt despite early wickets thanks to a boundary laden 49 from Geoff Perera.
Peter Geere also contributed 29 in the middle-order as Kwinana passed the total and finished the match on 6-139.
4th Grade had a nightmare with the bat against Kardinya Lakes at Buzzacott Reserve.
Kwinana batted first after winning the toss.
The batsmen found it tough going from the start and eventually folded all out for 53.
The bowlers put in an impressive effort with Rhyley Rametta taking 4-19 and Fida Hussain claiming 4-11; however, they never had enough runs on the board.
Kardinya ended the match all out for 107.
A solid effort from One-Day Cs batsmen saw Kwinana in the game against Kenwick at the innings break.
Oskar Johns Carpenter led the way making 37 batting at three.
Some late boundaries saw Kwinana post 150.
The bowlers made an early breakthrough, but Kenwick’s middle-order wrested back control.
Kenwick cruised past 150 and finished the match on 3-213.
One-Day H has been learning quickly put struggled against CBC.
After being asked to field Kwinana made a steady start but as the innings wore on CBC’s batsmen took the inexperienced bowling attack apart despite Philip Keirnan’s 4-27.
The innings concluded with CBC on 7-183.
The pressure of runs on the board proved too much for Kwinana as they crumbled to be all out for 40.
