South Mandurah and Halls Head also claimed final-day victories to lock in finals appearances.

It was do-or-die in Waroona for Souths.

Halls Head wrapped up third spot with an 84-run win over Singleton Irwinians.

After being sent in to bat, Chris Phelps’ first 50 of the season, as well as efforts from skipper Andrew Tatterson (40) and Josh Petersen (44), helped Halls Head to an imposing 8-223. The Irwinians were almost out of the contest before it even began, slumping to 5-33.
