Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Kar­ratha Kats booked their spot in the Twenty20 fi­nal with a three­wicket vic­tory over the Pegs Creek Crabs last week­end.

Sent in to bat, the Crabs lost Brett Saun­ders (3) to a run-out early.

Harrison At­tard (30) and Daniel Carse (33) joined up to steady the ship with a 70-run part­ner­ship.

The staunch in­nings came at the cost of the run rate as both bats­men strug­gled to break some tidy bowl­ing.

Michael James (0-9), War­wick Du­rack (0-13) and Craig Ford (0-14) pegged the Crabs on their crease as they strug­gled to 4-112 from their 20 overs.

The Kats were off to a fast start through opener Pa­trick Richards (33), but the Crabs kept com­ing with wick­ets down the other end.

Af­ter Richards de­parted, wick­ets kept fall­ing, but the score­board kept tick­ing over.

James (10) and Pe­ter An­der­son (4) guided the Kats across the line in the 18th over.
