Round 6 v Subiaco/Floreat
Gosnells 10/187 and 9/76 def by Subiaco-Floreat 10/186 and
Subiaco won the toss and elected to bowl at Sutherlands
Park. With a couple of changes to the Hawks line up they started positively
with Green and Jacobs up top, they would combine for 39 in the first wicket and
Leipold would also contribute nicely with Green for the second wicket. But it
was all too familiar sight for Gosnells with wickets tumbling thick and fast.
Leipold (26) and Roberts fell first. Soon afterwards, Green would make a half
century but wouldn’t contribute anymore to the scoreboard, the middle order was
less than impressive but a late cameo from Duffield (23) would push the Hawks
Things would begin positively for Gosnells, Prescott grabbing
3 vital wickets overnight to have the game evenly poised. Gosnells were on a
rampage having Subiaco 6/75, which included a 5-wicket haul by Prescott. But
with Subiaco fighting hard they managed to tip the game back into even terms.
The Lions would eventually need 2 runs for a first innings win with 2 wickets
in hand, before heroically Prescott and Foster would both take wickets to
defeat Subiaco by 1 run. Prescott amazingly finishing with figures 7/32 off 18
The second innings wouldn’t go as planned for the Hawks,
prematurely a batter down already, Green would only manage 3, before another
collapse from the Hawks couldn’t hold off a starred bowling line up from
Subiaco to fall for a small total of just 76, with Leipold the only Hawk really
putting much input with a fighting 37.
Only needing 78 to win outright, Subiaco were straight out
the blocks and wasted no time to chase the total down, eventual outright
winners by 9 wickets.
Chris Prescott 7/32 off 18 overs
Matt Leipold 36 and 27
Gosnells 10/116 and 10/111 defeated by Subiaco-Floreat 9/185
declared and 0/44
Gosnells won the toss and elected to bat, things weren’t off
to the greatest start losing Ridley (11), Payne (6) and Menezes (1) early. Josh
Boyne and Damien Sweet compiled a solid 44 run partnership before Sweet fell
for 23, Lulham for a duck and Boyne for 33, would put Gosnells on the back foot
at 6/77. A late small cameo from McGann (20) and Robson (10) lifted the hawks
Subiaco started positively and would finish the day 1/70
with Rose picking up the wicket. Day 2 would start well for Rose as he
collected another 2 wickets, but Subiaco’s win was inevitable as they passed
the score just 3 down. Acomb (4/51) and McFarlane (2/53) would slam the breaks
on Subiaco, and by lunch they would declare 9/185, 69 runs ahead.
After lunch Ridley and Payne falling early would have
Gosnells immediately with a lot of work to do, but Sweet and Lulham would build
a partnership of 74 would have Gosnells in front of the match before the tea
break. Unfortunately for Gosnells, when Lulham fell, the Hawks would also
fall massively, losing Sweet for a fine
74, but Gosnells were fell short of contributors, they were all out not long
after tea for 111. Subiaco requiring only 43 for an outright win.
Subiaco’s openers would complete the outright win without
trouble, winning by a convincing 10 wickets.
Damien Sweet 23 and 74

Gosnells 6/247 declared and 3/22 defeated Subiaco-Floreat
10/109 and 10/167
Subiaco batted first at Sutherlands and things started well
for the Hawks, thanks to Waldron and Montgomery, Subiaco found themselves at
5/17 and then 7/42. Some aggressive batting from the lower order saved Subiaco
and lifted them to 109. Stephen Montgomery was a standout for the Hawks taking
5/32. Waldron 2/32 and Giles 2/29 were also solid contributors for the Hawks.
The chase started well for Gosnells, despite losing Panetta
for 17, young Daniel Smedley and Brandon Cavallaro would put Subiaco out of the
contest, Smedley made a convincing 40 and Cavallaro 42 would see Gosnells be
winners on day 1. Day 2 would continue to be Gosnells match, Skipper Baden
Norwood scored an exciting 70 off 49 balls not out, Back 23 and Dawson 32 off
24 balls would bring the innings to a close. Gosnells would eventually declare
138 runs ahead.
Subiaco would fight off the chances to fall outright, but
Baden Norwood and Wahid would keep the chances alive with some consecutive
wickets. Gosnells had to toil hard for a 4th wicket but it was an
unlikely source that provided it, Elijah Panetta snatched the wicket that would
eventually begin a late collapse in which Wickets from Back, Norwood and
Waldron would mean Gosnells needed 30 runs from only 2 overs to complete an
Despite how well the Hawks played, it was a hill to high to
climb, falling 8 runs shy of an outright win, which was nothing to take away
from an amazing performance from the guys.
Daniel Smedley 40
Brandon Cavallaro 42
Norwood 70 not out
Stephen Montgomery 5/32
Dan Waldron 3/31
Baden Norwood 3/15
Gosnells 10/120 and 5/67 defeated Subiaco-Floreat 10/130 and
Gosnells bowled first in what was to become another crazy
match of cricket. Gosnells started slow, but a terrific team effort from the
Hawks would turn around a difficult start, continuous wickets throughout the
day from Adams, Goodman, Singh, Sharma and Roberts would have Subiaco all out
for 130 before tea.
Gosnells also got off to the perfect start thanks to Bates(23)
and Subramani (25), but by the days end, the match would be evenly poised at
5-80. With Gosnells needing 51 more runs with 5 wickets in hand, it was
anybody’s game, Kelly contributed with a fighting 23 but lacked others in help,
and Gosnells would fall short by a disappointing 10 runs.
Ryan Kelly and Luke Goodman would lead a massive charge in
which would tip the game into the hands of Gosnells. Goodman bowled super tight
and was rewarded with wickets, taking 3/10 off his 13 overs. Ryan Kelly also
had 4 wickets by tea, and Subiaco saw themselves in massive trouble at 7/42.
Eventually Ryan Kelly would finish with 7/37 and would finish off the Lions and
meant that Subiaco were all out for 55 and meant Gosnells needed 67 runs for
victory to complete the ultimate turnaround from earlier that day.
Gosnells would take a tumble or two, but it wasn’t enough to
keep them down for long, they would finish 5/67 and complete an outright win
within 12 overs, also bringing them their first win for the season.

Naveen Subramani 25 and 22
