The win comes after the side were named the overall ACCC champions on Wednesday, January 9, after finishing on top of the table with six victories from eight matches played.

It was a slow start for WA in their final against the Vics after the competitions’ leading run-scorer Aaron Burrage was dismissed for two and opening partner Bevan Bennell fell not long after for 18.

Albany’s Nathan Crosby and skipper Tim Hutchison put together a partnership of 75 before Crosby fell for 42.

Hutchison scored a brilliant 51 from just 55 deliveries which included six boundaries in a vitally important captain’s knock.

WA was dismissed for 188 in the 45th over thanks to some late-order hitting from Vice-Captain Tom Buchanan (34).

Victoria got off to a flying start posting 0-40 before Hutchison took the first wicket.

Albany’s Patrick Butler was the best with the ball, collecting incredible figures of 4-14 from just seven and a half overs, while Peel’s Daniel Abel took 3-31 from his 10 overs.

WA dismissed the Vics’ for 119 and claimed their second piece of silverware in a historical week for WA country cricket.

The Women also had a magnificent tournament making the semi-final, after winning four of their six qualifying matches against South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

WA lost the toss and were sent into bat, posting a target of 79 runs off their 20 overs, thanks largely to Emma Bresser (24) and skipper Amy Edgar (19).

Despite the best efforts of Geraldton’s Janelle Phillips (2-6) with the ball, Queensland chased down the target with four overs to spare.
