The Karratha Kats were crowned winners on Friday night after clawing down the Dampier Taverners at Millars Well Oval in the West Pilbara Cricket Association men’s T20 grand final. The Kats won the toss and batted first, and it didn’t take long for the action to start with the Taverner’s Brandon Riddell taking a wicket in the first over. This brought Daniel Carse and Brayden Lee together, with Carse scoring a quick-fire 23 runs. Lee and Michael James put on 50 for the third wicket before Dan Harding removed James, and Cody Bone snared Lee. Elliott Lawrie and Josh Harper added 54 runs, with Lawrie scoring 33 runs off 23 balls. The Kats finished on 4-153 off their 20 overs. Dan Harding was the pick of the Taverners bowlers with 1-22 off his four overs. The Taverners’ chase started well with Mark Saunders making 27, before the Kats were able to take four quick wickets to leave the Taverners at 4-54. Craig Leknys scored a quickfire 39 runs off 29 balls, but it wasn’t enough as the Taverners ended their 20 overs on 5-108. Michael James was a top Kats bowler taking 2-17 off his four overs. Lawrie was named the player of the match, as the Kats won by 45 runs.
