Day 1

An excellent start for the MIGHTY EASTS with 397-6 after the completion of 103 overs. It was a great team effort with the batting including a century to Jamie Gibson 122 - Matt Ansell 44, Fraser Colson 52, Jimad Khan 69 and Lauchie Johns 56*.

Day 2

Lauchie Johns 56* at stumps battered on achieving a century - 103 with support from Andrew Fullerton-Smith 37, Lance Dry 35* and Peter Connell 30. Easts managed to amass their highest ever innings score with 550 all out. (The previous record was set in the 2007 final against - Naenae 474.)

Johnsonville then had a difficult task ahead of them and were all out for 208 with Peter Connell taking 5-45. Captain Lance Dry decided to bat again and after the lost of a few early wickets Easts were 79-3, with Luke Georgeson 50*, at stumps on day 2. A lead of 421 runs.

Day 3

Well we continued to dominate on the last day with Luke Georgeson scoring a century and a 2nd innings total of 261. This gave Easts a lead of 603 and the Johnsonville captain thought it was about time to shake hands.

Drawn game but as Easts were the Top Qualifier meant we WON THE PEARCE CUP again !!!!

15th time in the last 17 years with us playing in the final for all 17 years !!!!!

Congratulations Lance and the Premier Team !!!!
