South Port v Wandearah - Port oval 12.30pm

The Pirates were just pipped at the post by the Rams on Saturday at Port oval with the Rams winning by three wickets.

The Pirates put on 70 runs from their last 12 overs making 6/136 from their 42 overs. Rob Anderson (34), Fraser Wyatt (33) and Mitch Alchin (28) were all good with the bat.

Matt Thornton (2/22) and Jamison Murphy (2/24) were the multiple wicket takers for the Rams. Todd Baker and Marc Congdon claimed one wicket each.

The Rams made a quick start to their innings moving to 0/49 from just eight overs. From there the Pirates put the squeeze on but the Rams were able to pass the Pirates score with just two balls to spare. Thornton top scored making 54. Marc Congdon was the other batsman to pass twenty making 34.

Liam Dreaver continues to develop his craft and looks like a great prospect taking 3/27. Rob Anderson is all class when bowling and with a bit more luck his figures of 2/24 would have been better. James Pavlich was the other wicket taker.

The Pirates continue to build and if they win next week will be in second spot. The Rams remain undefeated but have been made to work for every win so far.
