Reigning premiers Tambellup recorded a comfortable six-wicket victory over Australs/Woodanilling in the opening round of the Great Southern Cricket Association on Saturday. Australs/Woodanilling batted first but Tambellup got off to a great start to have their opponents 2-14 before Phillip Pink and Damian Barnes steadied the ship. The pair got their side to 3-73 when Barnes was dismissed and Australs/Woodanilling put on another 20 runs before Pink was removed for a well-made 58. Late cameos from David Potter (23) and Michael Dark (20) helped them reach 7-151. The pick of the Tambellup bowlers were Daniel Willmott (2-21) and Nathan Willmott (2-27) as their side needed 152 to win. In reply, openers Jack Taylor (31) and Flynn Cristinelli (16) got Tambellup off to a strong start, but the loss of back-to-back wickets had the defending champs with work to do at 2-55. When Taylor departed Tambellup were 3-90, but from that point on it was smooth sailing. Nathan and Daniel Willmott built a teriffic partnership making 47 not out and 27 respectively to help their side cruise to victory, finishing on 4-157 off 32 overs. Dark ended with impressive figures of 3-19 from five overs for Australs/Woodanilling. Broomehill coasted to victory in their round-one clash with Wanderers at Broomehill. Wanderers lost consistent wickets throughout their innings and only managed 8-121 from their 45 overs. Ryan Chapman topscored for Wanderers with 24 while Sam Richardson and Andrew Gibbons both took two wickets for Broomehill. A 66-run second-wicket partnership between Gibbons and Brant Dennis helped Broomehill control the run chase. After Jack Batchelor was removed for 22, the pair helped their side get past 100 and they went on to finish on 3-122 off 23.1 overs. Gibbons made 37 while Dennis added 35. A half century to Clinton Gilbert helped Kendenup post a mammoth score of 5-243 from their 45 overs against Frankland River. Gilbert finished on 65 while contributions from Jarrad Beach (46) and Keegan Berry (37) set up a huge run chase. Frankland River put up a great fight but were bowled out for 190 in 38 overs. Berry claimed 4-20 off 8.3 overs while three other Kendenup bowlers each claimed two wickets.
