After losing their first six games, Fairfield Liverpool still have a chance to finish in the top half of the NSW Premier Cricket ladder after a clinical win against Gordon on Saturday.

Param Uppal (140) picked up where he left off last week guiding the Lions to a total of 299. His 422-minute knock included eight boundaries and a six. Charlie Stobo was the star with the ball taking 8-63. The bowlers completed a memorable final home game for the Lions dismissing the visitors for 163.

The Lions play their final game of the season against Hawkesbury at Owen Earle Oval on Saturday. The one-dayer starts at 10am.

Liam Hatcher, who recently took 7-43 in the Futures League, continued his strong form with the ball taking 5-63. He was well supported by Chad Sammut (2-31) and Uppal who completed his man of the match performance with the tidy figures of 2-16 with his off-spin.

The Lions finish their season with a limited overs fixture against Hawkesbury. A win would see them finish with six wins from their final nine games and finish on 40 points.

In the last two years they have combined for 42 points.
