A fired-up Dampier Taverners took down Karratha Kats with an over to spare in the West Pilbara Cricket Association women’s twenty-over competition. The round 11 clash took place at Millars Well Oval on February 22 with Dampier winning the toss and sending Kats in to bat. The decision paid off when bowlers Kiara Ganzer and Ash Knox proved too much for the Kats’ top order to have them reeling at 3-16. Batters Elisha Baartz (19) and Janny Menzies (19) gave the Kats something to defend with the side finishing 8-87 after 20 overs. Knox was the stand-out bowler with three wickets for 18 runs while Emma Gentry bagged two wickets. Needing just over four runs an over to win, Taverners made a steady start to their innings before opener Gentry was dismissed for 16 to leave the side at 2-62. Ganza came to the crease and hit a quickfire 41 off 44 to finish not out and power her side to victory in the 18th over. The final score saw Dampier finish 5-88 to take a five-wicket win. In the other women’s game, Pegs Creek (5-144) remained undefeated after securing a 23-run victory over Karratha Falcons (4-121). Meanwhile in the men’s 20-over competition, Karratha Kats defeated Dampier Taverners Two 5-127 to 8-102.
