WESTLAWN walked into a tempest on Saturday as Jack Weatherstone tore through the side's top order at Ulmarra Showground.
The Brothers left arm seamer chose the perfect moment to shine in the second versus third CRCA Premier League clash. His devastating spell of 5 for 15 off 8 overs including three maidens and a hat-trick helped roll Westlawn for just 56 runs.
The resulting six-wicket win gives Brothers breathing space in the top two.
Weatherstone's day began perfectly when an inswinging yorker sent Luke McLachlan packing first of the ball of the match.
A short time later he had Brad Inmon (13) caught by Brothers captain Jake Kroehnert in the slips which brought danger man Charlie Amos to the crease.
Weatherstone knocked over Amos' castle with an "unplayable" delivery and followed up with a sandshoe crusher that left the umpire no choice but to send Brenden Cotten on his way, out lbw.
Suddenly Weatherstone was celebrating his first hat-trick since Under-12s.
"I was pretty pumped. It was a good feeling," the 19-year-old said.
"But I didn't have much time to react because I was soon covered by 11 players."
