AFTER a frustrating season, Fairfield Liverpool first grade had their third win, defeating Penrith by five wickets at Howell Oval on Saturday.
The Lions have been competitive in most matches and in a position to win, with poor batting bringing about their downfall.
Sent into bat, Penrith recovered from 4-28 to 176 in 49.1 overs.
Lions fast bowlers Kieran Elley and Gurinder Sandhu were in sizzling form, taking 3-48 and 2-29, respectively.
Veteran Phil Hangyasi, the workhorse of the team, took 2-31.
Hangyasi does the hard yakka each week and bowls long spells.
Fairfield-Liverpool's chase was led by NSW under 19s wicketkeeper, Guy Seymour, who posted 88 not out off 137 balls.
The left-handed batsman who joined from Wests this summer, was in command, giving the Penrith bowlers little respite from his blazing shots.
The Lions posted victory in the 44th over with 36 balls to spare, moving them to 18 points.
On Saturday, they play Randwick Petersham in another limited overs game, at Rosedale Oval, starting at 10am.
