Tambellup remain undefeated after they returned from the mid-season break in good touch to register a resounding seven-wicket win over the second-placed Wanderers in the Great Southern Cricket Association last Saturday.

Tambellup picked up from where they left off as they managed to restrict Wanderers, who had previously only lost one game, to just 105 off 33.4 overs.

Craig Clinch top scored for the Wanderers, with 44 before being bowled by Nathan Willmott.

His knock gave the side some chance of building a defendable total.

Tambellup’s bowlers performed well, with Willmott ending with the impressive figures of 4-6 while debutant Connor Hawkins impressed with 3-5 off two overs.

Tambellup lost two early wickets before the returning Flynn Cristinelli made light work of the total as he finished on 44 not out with four boundaries.

Tambellup chased down the total in 38 overs, for the loss of only three wickets.

In the other round-eight fixtures, Broomehill recorded an upset win over Frankland River, thanks to 104 from Steve Irvine and 52 from Jack Batchelor as they posted 257 off their 45 overs.

Batting second, Frankland put up a decent fight but fell 30 runs short as they finished on 7-228 in reply.

Kendenup won their fourth game of the year, defeating Australs/Woodanilling to retain fourth spot on the ladder.
