Kwinana Cricket Club’s 3rd Grade side made the most of a good start to claim their first win of the year on Saturday, while One-Day Ds continue to gather momentum.

Coming into day two, 3rd Grade had CBC 2-12 chasing 147 for victory at Orelia Oval.

It was a slow start all round before Brett Kearney (5-14) struck to leave the visitors struggling at 3-28.

Scott Benjamin (1-28) got in the act as Kwinana began to turn the screws.

Qaisar Mewati (2-25) grabbed two just before the break to make it 30 for the season and leave CBC in big trouble at 8-83.

Callum Langley (44) provided a thorn in Kwinana’s side, but when Ryley Rametta (2-30) snuck through his defences, CBC’s chances disappeared.

Kearney completed his five-for and the win as the visitors were dismissed for 111.

One-Day Ds are building form nicely ahead of finals after dispatching Cockburn at Gilmore College Oval.

After being put in to bat first, Kwinana built steady partnerships and passed the 100 mark with just two wickets down.

With the platform set, Satinder Singh (50) and Harjeet Singh (47) were given free rein and made the most of it as they blasted Kwinana past 200 and ended their 35 overs on 6-223.

Kwinana’s bowlers made light work of Cockburn’s batting order, reducing them to 7-67 before the visitors limped to 7-111.

Jaskaran Singh grabbed 3-18.

Kwinana’s 6th Grade had an incredible comeback against Cannington at Coker Park, but it was not quite enough.

Defending 126, Kwinana looked gone at 1-83.

But they fought back, taking 8-40 to leave themselves needing one wicket with five runs in hand.

However, one loose ball was all it took as Cannington scraped over the line.
