After dismissing West for 162, Memo Rovers lost their first four wickets for just two runs and finished at 5/30 at stumps. West captain Ryan Thomson said: We bowled really well from the start but they still have come very dangerous batsmen to come to the crease. Adrian McAdam and Charlie Dick are the current unbeaten batsmen, and with Scott Allen to come back into the side this Saturday, Thomson said the match is far from over. He said: Adrian, Charlie and Scott have the potential to take the game away from us. We just have to concentrate on getting those next five wickets and then go from there. Thomson and Anthony Geppa shared two wickets each, while there was one run out. Opening batsman Nick Whyte was impressive at the top of the order, scoring a well-made 55. He said: Nick Whyte showed some real determination for a youngster. He was really impressive and set up our innings. Thomson is wary of the defending champions and knows his side has to bring the same intensity this Saturday. He said: They are a very aggressive team and they need to win. An outright for either team is definitely on the cards. Demons have upper hand CRICKET Dale Fletcher Federal ASbuilds Craig Prettejohn scored 47 against RSL Works on Saturday Picture: MICHAEL POTTS FEDERAL ASbuild are in a commanding position in their Alice Springs Cricket Association round 17 A grade clash against RSL Works at Albrecht Oval. Half centuries to opener Jack Harding, Tom Clements and Shannan Ryan was the backbone of Federal ASbuilds 286 total. In reply RSL Works are 2/8. Federal ASbuild capt a i n / c o a c h S e a n Huddle said: It was a great day for us on Saturday. Jack Harding was the stand out. He played great at the top of the order. What Huddle was most impressed about was the two late wickets, both taken by Kane Hynes. He said: Kane was hooping them in and got two bowled which was a real key. The last wicket partnership was also a real game changer. Ryan (66 not out) and Toby White put on 35 for the final wicket. Clements (57) and Harding (68), helped recover the Federal ASbuild innings after struggling early on to be 3/34. RSL Works captain Alex Marsh said the last seven overs of the day really cost his side some momentum Marsh said: It was disappointing to lose those two late wickets. It was a horrible time to bat. Its little sessions like that you have to win if you are going to be a good side. We will learn from that. Marsh still believes the 286 target is achievable. He said: Its a belter of a batting deck and there are plenty of runs there once you are in. Federal showed that if you can bat smartly in partnerships, a big score is very achievable. Jamie Smith was the pick of the RSL Works bowlers with four wickets, while Marsh took three wicks and D i l l o n M e a s u r e s battled hard in the conditions for two victims. Marsh said: Weve just got to focus on batting the whole, if not most of, the day next week. If we can do that and not have big batting collapses, Ill take that this early on in the twodayers, regardless of the result.
