Western Park (3-200) def. Hallora (3-90): A brutal century from Sanjaya Gangodawila was enough to lift Western Park to the A-Grade T20 flag – even though rain ruined what was potentially going to be a tight finish. In a power-packed display of hitting Gangodawila demonstrated his love of the shorter form of the game against Hallora, following up his knock of 70 in another rain-affected match a month ago before blitzing the bowlers to all parts on Sunday. He combined with Lasi Amarasooriya for an astounding opening assault on the Hallora bowlers – the pair peeling off 109 from the first 10 overs before Amarasooriya departed for an excellent 49. Unperturbed by the loss of his partner Gangodawila continued to attack, and reached his century in the 16th over with a crunching cover drive. He departed soon after, but by that stage the damage had been done – the scoreline reading 3-200 at the end of 20 overs. To their credit Hallora decided there was only one way to go about their chase, although the one man truly capable of destroying a match was out in the first over with Ryan Williams back in the pavilion. Unperturbed, Sam Whibley blasted his way to 55 to raise Hallora’s hopes – his side making it to 3-90 in the 11th over rain intervened. Sam Russell in particular was taken to with his two overs costing 27, but with weather playing a part Western Park were handed the flag as a result of the lead-up matches – the win making it two out of two flags for season 2014/15 following their One-Day Final win over Buln earlier in the summer.
