Pegs Creek, Baynton Lions extend undefeated West Pilbara Cricket Association T20 run in round 4
Pegs Creek 1 have extended their unbeaten streak in the West Pilbara Cricket Association men’s T20 competition with an impressive showing against Nickol, holding the hawks to just 92 runs.
Playing under the Saturday night lights at Millars Well Oval, Pegs Creek got off to a strong start with Lachlan Seabrook smashing 39 runs off 24 balls before being caught out.
Unfortunately, Jordan Perkusich’s unimpressive form continued with the star batsman only managing 15 runs before being bowled by Syed Ali.
With a number of low scores through the middle order, things began to look sketchy for the undefeated league leaders, but it was Michael Greene’s 23 runs that saw the tally lift above 100, and a 13-run not-out innings for Anthony Brokate saw Pegs Creek set the chase at 122 runs.

But it was Pegs Creek 1’s bowling that was most impressive, allowing just one Nickol batter - Waqas Ahmad - above 20 runs to see the Hawks fall well short of the total, managing just 92 runs in 20 overs.
Pegs Creek’s Matthew Smith took three wickets for just 14 runs over three overs.
The win extends Pegs Creek 1’s undefeated run to four games, a welcome relief after second-place and still-undefeated Baynton Lions took the points over Rec Club.
It took the Lions just 12 overs to topple Rec Club, who set the chase at a measly 73 runs.
Elsewhere in the league, the Karratha Kats were able to topple Wickham to remain in third place on the ladder, while Dampier Taverners 1 beat their cross-club rivals Dampier Taverners 2, who lost to Pegs Creek 2 in their double-header later in the evening.
