A dominant bowling display from the Wanderers saw South Hedland skittled for just 51 in their round-four clash of the Ray Stoddart Shield at Kevin Scott Oval last Friday.

South Hedland won the toss and elected to bat, a decision that proved costly, with Clint Ernst the only batsman to score above 10 in their innings.

Adrian Wight got the Wanderers off to a perfect start, bowling Julian Wilmot in the first over before Matthew Skelton took three wickets in an over to leave South reeling at 4/14 after just four overs.

Wyatt Wilson then joined the bowling party for the Wanderers, dismissing Ernst for 12 on his way to a three-wicket haul.

South were unable to rally and were dismissed for 51 in the 16th over.

Wanderers cruised to victory in the 10th over, winning by eight wickets with Gregory Havers top-scoring with 15.

Meanwhile, in the other game, Port Hedland continued their dominant start to the season with their fourth straight victory.

A disciplined bowling attack saw the Hedland Lions restricted to just 83 runs from their 20 overs with Jarrad O’Dea starring for Port taking three wickets in his one over while Chris Briody took two for eight from his spell.

Port chased down the total with ease, winning by eight wickets with Glen Robertson finishing not out with 40 runs.
