Nickol got off to a fast start in their run chase before Kot backed up his batting masterclass with a brilliant caught and bowled to dismiss opener Muhammad Aslam.

Kot continued to tear through the Hawks lineup, removing Nickol’s top five batters to finish with figures of 5-25.

Hawks refused to roll over but the damage was done, with the side finishing their innings on 9-158.

Kahn was the top scorer for Hawks with a hard-fought 37.

Meanwhile, Pegs Creek 1 continued their dominance over the competition with a one-sided victory over Baynton Lions.

Lions elected to bat first, a decision that proved costly when Pegs bowling attack got fired up.

After making a steady start to their innings, Lions crumbled under pressure, losing seven wickets for just 25 runs to limp to the finish line on 8-102.

Pegs captain and opening batter Jordan Perkusich (71 not out) wasted little time in the run chase and hitting with a strike rate of more than 200 steered his side to victory in the 10th over.

In the end, Pegs Creek finished 2-105 to defeat Baynton Lions by eight wickets.

Wickham secured a win over Dampier Taverners 2 at Windy Ridge Oval.
