Ellenbrook were then quickly bowled out for 67, Alistair Eaton dominating with 6/26. Chris Mason also excited the crowd with a hat-trick and figures of 3/23.

Lesmurdie ran out of time to score the runs in their second innings but still managed 5/34.

Man of the match was Chris Mason, from Lesmurdie-Mazenod, with nine wickets, including the hat-trick.
