On a special occasion for the Boyup Brook Cricket Club where they celebrated 20-year (2000-01) and 10-year (2011-12) premiership wins, they had a resounding 154-runvictory against top of the table Pemberton.

In front of a big Boyup crowd, Pemberton won the toss and elected to bowl first.

This looked to backfire as the Boyup openers, Jason Raven (24) and Braydon Ridley (59) tore apart the Pemberton attack to move the score to 95 in only 15 overs.

With the departure of the openers, Tim Mead (30) and Tristan Mead (62) continued the onslaught, but quick wickets from Nicholas Mills (2-41) had the innings in a precarious position at 5-142.

With Alex Tweedie (22) and Joseph Thompson (21) supporting David Johnston (62), Boyup’s middle order got right back on top to finish their innings at an imposing 8-308. Peter Bamess (2-34) and Riley Liddelow (2-43) were multiple wicket takers for Pemberton.

In reply, Pemberton lost two early wickets and were never in the hunt to chase down the big total.

Peter Bamess batted sensibly, but was dismissed for 91 in the 43rd over.

Jesse Mills (13) and David Meehan (17) were the only other batters to make double figures, as Pemberton finished their 45 overs at 6-152.

Jacob Maw continues to show he is the dominant paceman of the competition with 2-22.
