Semple Routs Blacktown

Adam Semple grabbed a 10-wicket haul for the match and Randwick Petersham moved within striking distance of the top of the table with a comfortable first grade win over Blacktown at Coogee Oval. Defending a first innings score of just 147, Randy Petes blasted out the Warriors for just 124 with Semple snaring 6-35 from 13.2 overs. Day two saw the home side make 2 for 226 in their second turn at bat, with Jason Hughes making his maiden century for the club – an unbeaten 102. After Blacktown was set a target of 250 on the final afternoon, Semple grabbed 4-53 off 11 overs before the visitors finished at 4 for 121. The first-grade team is now in a share for sixth, just one point off second position. In second grade, an impressive second innings knock of 94 from teenager James Mahony-Brack was not enough to save his side from outright defeat. Third grade powered to a three wicket win after chasing down a target of 282, with Jack Lyle making an unbeaten 60. In fourth grade, Rod Stafford took 5 for 37 as Blacktown was bowled out for 133. Randwick Petersham, led by an unbeaten 38 from skipper David Bourke, made 5-134 in reply. Fifth grade was beaten outright but welcomed back quick Mitch O’Loughlin (4-33) from injury. In Metro Cup, Green went down to Sydney Uni and Gold lost to UNSW Black.
