THE Western Suburbs District Cricket Club snatched the final spot in the top four in the 2014 LICI Easter Tournament.

The club from Brisbane, Australia yesterday defeated Lakeba by seven wickets at Albert Park in Suva yesterday.

Lakeba won the toss and chose to bat first scoring 97 runs after losing all its players in 28.3 overs.

Peni Dakai started well scoring 37 runs but faltered following a strong bowling from the visitors.

Western Suburbs skipper Matt Dyson was the hero for the side after taking five wickets for 41 runs after ten overs.

Fiji's own Viliame Yabaki also did well for the Australians with an economical 4-18 after 7.3 overs.

In reply, Western Suburbs reached the required runs in 15.3 overs with the loss of three wickets.

In the semi-finals commencing at 9.30am today, Suva Warriors will play Suva Crusaders at Albert Park I while Moce will take on Western Suburbs at Albert Park II.

The final will be played on Monday.
