Demon Sam Harper hit a brilliant 145 today

Footscray and Fitzroy Doncaster have recorded outright wins, taking them clear on top of the Premier Cricket ladder. Melbourne registered the highest score for the season against Kingston Hawthorn, while Greenvale Kangaroos (57) eclipsed Casey-South Melbourne's 61 (scored last week) as the lowest team score of the season.

 

Demon trio Will Pucovski (138 off 210 balls, 17 fours), Sam Harper (145 off 116 balls, 11 fours, 8 sixes) and Seb Gotch (86* off 57 balls, 6 fours and 7 sixes) were the principal contributors to their side's huge total. The win has kept Melbourne in the hunt for a finals berth.

 

With 11/60 against Greenvale Kangaroos, Lions' paceman Trent Lawford has recorded the best match bowling figures since Dan Mueller's 12/56 for St Kilda against Footscray in 2010-11. The Kangaroos, resuming at 3/6 today, capitulated for just 57 in the second innings, leaving Fitzroy Doncaster the simple task of scoring 37 for maximum points, which they achieved without loss. Lawford finished with 6/24 to go with his 5/36 in the first innings.

 

It was a similar story at Casey Fields, with Footscray winning outright by 9 wickets. Casey-South Melbourne put up a much better effort in its second innings after a miserable 61 in the first. The Swans finished with 192 (Luke Manders 94), with Hamish Winter-Irving (5/35) doing best with the ball. This set the Doggies just 23 for the outright and this was reached for the loss of Greg Munro's wicket.

 

Carlton made light work of Monash Tigers' 205 at Princes Park. Harrison Smyth (147) scored his second, and highest, Premier century, receiving good support from Brayden Stepien (53) and Nick Ross (45), guiding the Blues to 6/315 at stumps. Smyth's innings occupied 265 balls and he hit 23 fours and a six. The win sees the Blues equal fourth with Essendon.

 

Melbourne Uni won a tight contest against Prahran at University. Defending 201, the Students bowled Prahran out for 173, largely due to a fine spell from fast bowler Steven Reid, who took 6/52 from 22.2 overs with 6 maidens. Batting a second time, Uni was 4/34 when an early stumps was called.

 

Essendon won an important contest with Dandenong at Shepley Oval. The Bombers scored 249 last week. The Panthers resumed at 1/31 today, but Clint McKay (4/43) and Matt Doric (2/74) caused early havoc and the innings crashed to 8/103. A blistering unbeaten 53 off just 30 balls (4 fours, 4 sixes) from Darren Pattinson added a degree of respectability to Dandenong's innings, which ended at 166. Essendon was 3/62 when stumps were drawn. The win sees Essendon to equal fourth spot on the ladder and right in the mix.

 

Geelong held its nerve and successfully reached Ringwood's 9(dec)279 target with two overs to spare. At 1/193 the Cats were looking good, but fell away to 6/215 as quicks Matt Fotia (3/49) and Michael Topp (2/39) made inroads. Angus Boyd (32*) found a capable ally in Dom McGlinchey (29*) and the pair added an unbroken 68 to see the Cats home. Earlier opener Mitch Reid (95) batted well.

 

The other two matches resulted in draws. Earlier in the day, St Kilda and Frankston Peninsula were both in the hunt to chase down their respective targets, but regular wickets took toll on the chase. Survival and the draw became the goal as the Northcote and Camberwell Magpies bowlers strived for wickets. Heat brothers Nick (27*) and Scott Boland (26*) played out the last hour and a half at Frankston. Saints' skipper Michael Beer (23* off 106 balls) and number eleven Sam Crea (4* off 64 balls) also held firm at the Junction Oval.
