Pegs Creek have secured the top spot in the West Pilbara Cricket Association ladder after a stunning win against Baynton Lions, with captain Jordan Perkusich hitting a whopping 266 runs off 137 balls. The league-leaders came out firing after winning the toss, with opener Dean Whiteford managing an impressive 56 runs off 46 balls. But it was his opening partner Jordan Perkusich who had his eye in, as the team captain smashed an unbelievable 23 fours and 18 sixes on his way to 266 runs off 137 balls. Pegs Creek finished 3/464, setting an almost impossible task for the Lions, who have struggled to put runs on the board against every team this season. Things got worse when Baynton’s No.1 batsman, Amritpal Singh, was bowled Oliver Battistessa for a duck on his fifth ball. Despite a valiant effort from middle-order batsman Manu Raghuvanshi, who hit 69 runs off 63 balls, Baynton were unable to get close to the Pegs Creek total, all out for 154. Aside from the impressive batting from Pegs Creek, Oliver Battistessa was a standout with the ball as he took five wickets while allowing only 14 runs. Elsewhere in the league, Dampier Taverners 1 were able to topple their intra-club rivals Dampier Taverners 2 to secure second spot on the ladder, and Pegs Creek 2 defeated third place Karratha Kats. Nickol Hawks beat Rec Club to secure fourth place on the ladder and a spot in finals cricket. Semifinals are scheduled to be played from midday on December 3.
