Kendenup have returned to the winner’s list with a dominant performance against Australs in round six of the Great Southern Cricket Association in Katanning. The commanding eight-wicket win helped Kendenup jump to second on the ladder after notching their second win of the season on Saturday. Australs won the toss and elected to bat first but were rattled early, with Kendenup dismantling their top-order with ease in the opening stages. Openers James Douglas (1) and Andrew Gibbons (0) were dismissed early as they slumped to 2-5. Australs were in even more strife after the wickets of Darcy Middleton (1) and Crawford Bolto (1) and when Phillip Pink (13), Drew Argyle (5) and Jonty Bolto (0) were all dismissed they had stumbled to 7-35. Despite Kris Norris adding a vital 44 runs, Australs were unable to generate any momentum as Kendenup bowled them out for 82 inside 32 overs. Sebastian Ballard was superb taking 3-13 from his six overs while Cameron Walsh (2-3), Darcey Burcham (2-21) and Sam Lehmann (2-15) also bowled well. Kendenup’s Walsh (3) was removed early in the run chase but Scott Hillman wasted no time in getting to work, whacking 55 not out off 44 balls while Darcey Burcham dug in with 19no. Walsh would be the only wicket Australs snared as Kendenup reached the small target in the 14th over, finishing at 1-85 in reply. Meanwhile, Tambellup recorded their first win of the season against Wanderers in Katanning on Saturday. The 94-run win was set up by terrific half centuries from Connor Hawkins (56) and Jedd Herbert (50) after Tambellup won the toss and batted first and they backed that up with an impressive display with the ball. Flynn Cristinelli (9) was knocked over by Elijah Quartermaine before Herbert and Hawkins steadied the ship to add 82 runs before the latter was caught off the bowling of Dean Pinney. Nathan Willmott (16) and Devon Cristinelli (5) were the next to go and Herbert was finally skittled by Quartermaine with Tambellup adding 28 more runs to finish at 8-194 from their 45 overs. Quartermaine was the pick of the bowlers for Wanderers with figures of 3-22 while Craig Clinch took 2-15. A promising 27-run stand from openers Naime Siniva and Callum Froby set Wanderers on their way, but Siniva was bowled by Daniel Wilmott on 17 and then Jacob Morris was trapped in front for just one. Froby (9), Pinney (0) and Brock Green (5) all fell cheaply as Wanderers limped to 5-44. Clinch fought hard with 28 but Wanderers’ lower order faltered and they were all out for 100 by the 28th over. Cristinelli (2-5), Matt Hankinson (2-7) and Nathan Willmott (2-9) were vital for the winners.
