The region’s round two cricket action was highlighted by a thrilling tie between Waroona and Halls Head at Peelwood Reserve in the Wyllie Cup at the weekend. Waroona won the toss and sent the home side in as Halls Head started strongly with a 71-run opening partnership between Josh Rudge (72) and Timothy Miles (26). Halls Head were cruising at 4-153 before Waroona wrested back momentum and took 5-7 to leave the home side on 9-169 after 50 overs. Waroona started strongly in reply as Jayden Derosa (42), Zachary Moody (31) and skipper Ben Wright (49) got them to 4-141. The visitors lost 5-25 at the back end of the innings and the winning equation was set, requiring three off the last ball. Zachary Elliot managed only two runs off the final ball and the game was tied. In the BDCA first grade, Leschenault suffered a four-wicket loss to Eaton. Leschenault made their way to 42 without loss after they won the toss and elected to bat. The tide turned for the away side when Nico Le Roux (22), Tyne Dodds (12) and Thomas Buchanan (0) were all dismissed without adding to the score. Matt Fink (22) and Jason Shine (13) showed some fight as the side staggered their way from 3-42 to 118 off 44 overs. Eaton were shaky early losing 3-18 before new recruit Julian Crudeli (66) and James Hillery (36) combined to see them home. Hillery fell with the score at 108 but Crudelli held strong to steer the home side to victory at 4-119. Harvey-Benger succumbed to a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Colts Cricket Club in the BDCA second grade. The home side won the toss and elected to bat with Colts’ youngster Jack Buswell (3-30) and Bryn Bursill (0-19) dominating early to reduce Harvey-Benger side to 2-32. Francois Roelofsz (22) tried to steady the ship but his dismissal at 3-53 led to a collapse which left Harvey-Benger 6-67 at drinks. Zak Italiano (22), Tyson Italiano (23) and Blake Johnston (17) were determined to give the visitors something to chase but Harvey-Benger were eventually bowled out for 138. Colts started well in reply but when Jaysen Miguel (48), Jake Michell (6) and Nicholas Wilson (9) fell the game hung in the balance with the visitors at 3-69. Colts’ wicketkeeper Sam Allen (17) and big-hitter Caillin Blackwood (47) then combined to see the visitors home after 29.4 overs.
