Harvey-Benger’s second grade team gave their season a glimmer of hope with a four-wicket win over Dalyellup in Harvey on Saturday. Harvey lost the toss and were made to field in oppressive conditions. Dalyellup started well before Joryn Scarlett made the first breakthrough to have Dalyellup 1-25 in the fifth over. Spinners Matt Chave and Francois Roelofsz were introduced early to restrict the scoring and did so without managing to take any wickets as Dalyellup made it to 1-70 at the first drinks break. After drinks, fortunes turned for the home side as they managed to secure consistent breakthroughs at the hands of Kye McCreery, Mahdi Saleem and Matt Chave. Harvey Benger took a collective 9-77 to bowl out Dalyellup for 157. Chave was the pick of the bowlers with 3-20 from his 10 overs alongside McCreery and Saleem who managed two each. In reply, experienced openers Haydn Jones and Hamish Minton got the innings off to a great start smashing the ball to all parts of the ground. The pair put on 80 for the first wicket before losing Minton for 44. Saleem and Chave quickly followed for eight and six respectively. When Jones departed, the score was 4-126 and the home side was a bit nervous. Kyle Hickman came to the wicket and was ably supported by captain Anton Fimmano to get the score close to the target however he departed when the hosts still needed 10. Joseph Cambrea came and departed for a duck to once again leave the hosts nervous. Roelofsz strode to the middle and on the back of a Fimmano boundary at the end of the 37th over, struck his first ball for six to win the game for the hosts. The side travels to Hay Park on Saturday for the last regular season match with a win needed to lock up a place in the finals. Harvey-Benger’s fourth grade team had a bye at the weekend and will return to face Hay Park at home on Saturday in the final game of the ordinary season.
