El Cheapo Easts win Hazlett Trophy and Return to the Pearce Cup

The Mighty Easts will be back playing in the Pearce Cup for the 2021/22 season after a thrilling 3 wicket win over Petone Riverside on Sunday and securing the Hazlett Trophy.

Petone Riverside elected to bat and were bowled out for 208 in the first innings aided by some uncharacteristically benevolent fielding, with wickets shared between Adam Leonard 2-42 (coming off a seven wicket bag the week before), Luke Georgeson 2-54 and Jed Wiggins 3-23. Easts in reply scored 283/8 with Lauchie Johns continuing his red hot form scoring 120 off 130 ball (14 x 4 and 3 x 6) his third century in 4 innings. He was ably supported by Adam Leonard 40, Jimad Khan 34 and Xavier Aspell 31.

With a 75 run lead on the first innings Easts bowled Petone out in the second innings for 191 with a rejuvenated Patrick Howes taking 5-42 supported by Adam Leonard 2-23, and Jed Wiggins 2-60. This left Easts needing 119 to win and after some early tremors Patrick Howes 42 and Adam Leonard 13 helped calm the nervous, leaving Jed Wiggins to play a signature cover drive for 4 to seal the win with a fist pump and an over to spare.

This puts Easts in a unassailable lead with 44 points clear on top, having had outrights wins over each of the three teams below them.
