A batting masterclass by Nathan Poole steered Pegs Creek to a massive 249-run victory over Nickol Hawks in round seven of the West Pilbara Cricket Association 40-over competition.

Pegs Creek 1 batted first at the Karratha Leisureplex on November 12, with openers Jordan Perkusich (92) and Lachlan Seabrook (75) making a rapid 130-run opening stand before Seabrook was dismissed.

Poole came to the crease and blasted 111 from just 82 balls to steer Pegs to an eye-watering 5-341.

Clinical bowling from Pegs meant Hawks could never get themselves into the run chase, with runs hard to come by and wickets falling at regular intervals.

In the end, Nickol Hawks were dismissed for 92 in the 32nd over.

Dampier Taverners 1 took on Wickham at Windy Ridge Oval, with Dampier batting first and making their way to 9-257.

Wickham needed just more than six runs an over from the outset and struggled after losing four quick wickets to be on 4-65.

A fighting innings from Scott Atkinson (47) gave Wickham hope, but it was not enough with the side dismissed for 164 and Dampier winning by 93.

In the third game of the round, Pegs Creek 2 took on Dampier Taverners 2 at Bulgarra Oval.

Strong bowling from Pegs restricted Dampier to 187.

Dampier refused to roll over, constantly chipping away at the Pegs’ batting lineup with regular wickets as Pegs tried to chase down the total.

The nail-biter of a game went down to the wire, with Pegs holding their nerve and chasing down the total to finish 7-188 and win by three wickets.

The final game of the round saw Karratha Kats defeat Baynton Lions by 68.

Kats batted first, with Patrick Richards scoring an unbeaten century to carry his bat and finish on 111 to guide Kats to 5-238.

Lions made 9-174 in reply, with Kats able to take regular wickets and restrict the Lions’ batters.
