Pilbara News - - Pilibra Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

Rec Club romped to a seven-wicket vic­tory over Pegs Creek Crabs to se­cure se­cond spot on the lad­der in the 40-over for­mat.

Hav­ing been sent out to field, Rec Club dis­missed the top half of Pegs Creek’s or­der for just 57.

Brendan Kuiper starred with 330 from six overs, backed up by Ja­cob In­namorati, who claimed 220 from four.

Bran­den Wright (26) put the Crabs into triple fig­ures be­fore be­ing the fi­nal wicket to fall with the score at 112.

Af­ter a good haul with the ball, Kuiper (58) wasted no time in the run chase, com­bin­ing with Wayne Hourque­bie (49 not out) for a 100run stand.

It was the Crabs’ sev­enth loss this sea­son and leaves them need­ing a mir­a­cle in the fi­nal round to make the fi­nals.

The Bayn­ton Lions’ fi­nals hopes were dealt a blow af­ter go­ing down to Wick­ham in Wick­ham.

The Lions posted 128, sti­fled by a ca­reer-best 5-36 for Paul Du Ponte.

While Wick­ham’s bats­men also failed to fire, the Lions were pe­nalised with 38 ex­tras, in­clud­ing 19 no-balls.

Wick­ham won the match with four wick­ets and 10 overs to spare.

Both teams are now locked on 12 points, vy­ing for the fi­nal spot in the top four with one round to go.

In Millars Well, the Kats came a step closer to a per­fect sea­son with a seven-wicket win over Dampier.

The Tav­ern­ers’ chose to bat first but lost key wick­ets early to slump to 4-31.

Lach­lan Napier (4-37) was the pick of the bowlers as the Kats fin­ished the Tav­ern­ers off for 144.

With bat in hand, Corey Rut­gers (75) con­tin­ued his im­pres­sive sea­son, now av­er­ag­ing 65.33 with al­most 200 runs from four matches.

Rut­gers com­bined with Brett Pilling (54) to see the Kats home with eight overs to spare.
