PERTH has heaped more pain onto winless Mt Lawley with a dominant batting performance in round 7 of Premier Cricket on Saturday.
Three top-order batsmen reached half-centuries in the process for the Demons in their match at Breckler Park.
Perth eventually finished on 9-348 to close the day, with Mt Lawley struggling to take regular wickets and break partnerships.
Mohamed Ijaz was again the pick of the bowlers with 4-89, while Ian Fishman snared three scalps himself.
The side will have their work cut out to chase the total on a flat Breckler Park deck.
The Hawks were beaten by Willetton by 32 runs in Sunday’s Premier Cricket T20 match at Breckler Park.
