1st grade after already claiming 1st innings points against Norths were looking to claim additional bonus points to have them now sit atop the 2 day ladder. Wests resumed at 1 – 130 with overnight batters Snell and Truloff both already on half centuries. Snell fell early after a crisp cover drive for 4 to be dismissed for 61, there was then a little wobble in the middle order with McGiffin edging behind for 12 and Del Simone also edging to 1st slip for a duck. A mini partnership pf 49 between Truloff and Dennien steadied things and got wests to 5 – 228 when Dennien was dismissed for 31. In form Jarred Sippel then joined Truloff at the crease and shared in a 96 run stand with Sippel passing 50 and then being dismissed for 57. Truloff in that time had brought up his century and he and Dooley jetted wests to their last bonus point by passing 350 when the declaration came with Truloff 134 not out and Dooley 21 not out off 14 balls. Wests then had 38 overs to bowl in the afternoon to try and grab a few extra bonus points with Norths finishing 3 – 158 with Tom Whitney grabbing 2 wickets and Paddy Dooley 1 wicket.
2nd grade fought hard in their defence of 251 but it wasnt to be with Norths finishing the day at 9 – 313. All bowlers contributed with the ball with Joe Fry 3 – 22, Danny Young 2 – 48 the main wicket takers.
