Eaton claimed two wins from two exciting Twenty20 matches in rounds 10 and 11. 

Taking on second-placed Colts, the Beavers were caught off-guard early on. 

The partnership of Jayden Goodwin (72 not out off 48, including 11 fours) and Murray Goodwin (44 off 26) saw Colts post 5/154. 

Thanks to half centuries from opening batsman Cory Fitt and top-order star James Hillery, Eaton reached Colts’ total with two overs to go. 

Leschenault ran away with a convincing win over Marist. 

With support from Brayden Clarke (38 off 44), Marist knocked a respectable 9/111. 

Captain Thomas Buchanan (43 off 37) and Steven Denison (57 off 26) helped the Green Caps to reach Marist’s total in 14.2 overs. 

Dalyellup Beach was relieved after scoring an upset win over Hay Park. 

Dalyellup’s top order batsmen got the team’s inning off to a strong start. 

After the side posted 7/131, Hay Park underwhelmed with the bat.

The Redbacks were only able to clinch 7/122 from their 20 overs. 

In round 11, Eaton picked up a remarkable 57-run win over Dalyellup. 

Chasing Eaton’s 8/172, Dalyellup suffered a lower order collapse before making 7/115. 

Fitt posted 60 off 32 (including six fours and three sixes), while Dalyellup’s Rodney Shemeld slogged 49 off 58. 

Colts was handed its second consecutive loss, going down to Leschenault by nine wickets. 

Following middle and lower order collapses, Colts posted 9/103. 

With assistance from Thomas and Matt Buchanan, Leschenault reached Colts’ total with two overs remaining. 

Hay Park redeemed itself with a 13-run victory over Marist. 

The Redbacks’ top order batsmen helped their side to post 2/142.
