Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

Fi­nals con­tenders were de­cided in round 10 of the 40-over cricket, with Kar­ratha Kats, Dampier Tav­ern­ers, Wick­ham and Peg’s Creek Crabs all mak­ing it through while the Baynton Lions were unlucky to fall out of the race de­spite their strong late-sea­son form.

Dampier Tav­ern­ers sent the Lions pack­ing with a com­fort­able win by more than 60 runs.

High scores from Dampier’s cap­tain Adrian D’Cunha (38), Bradley Goes (67), Paul Rowe (32) and Jake Leahy (30no) fea­tured in an im­pres­sive to­tal of 5-209. Baynton chased hard but were bowled out for 142.

Kar­ratha Kats de­feated Peg’s Creek Crabs at the Leisure­plex Oval.

Mean­while Wick­ham were given a clear path to the fi­nals, win­ning their round 10 match on a for­feit from Rec Club.

There is a two-week break be­fore the 40-over semi­fi­nal games are played on Satur­day, March 11.

Kar­ratha Kats will face Peg’s Creek Crabs in a first-ver­sus-fourth play-off at Millars Well Oval, while Dampier will play Wick­ham at Windy Ridge Oval.
