A CENTURY from Mick Miller and a hat-trick to Dean White helped Northern Brothers Diggers send an ominous warning with a comfortable seven-wicket TCI A grade win over Metropolitan-Easts on Saturday.

White finished off the Mets tail taking the three final wickets in consecutive balls to help dismiss the Trojans for 218.

White (3-55) and Aaron Watson (3-32) each took three wickets.

Miller then took over an hit 115 while opening the batting for Diggers as the Dragons chased down the Mets total in the 39th over with seven wickets in hand.

And at USQ, University's middle-order outperformed the Railways middle-order as the Students recorded a five-wicket win over the Bulldogs.

Railways won the toss and batted but things started poorly with the top three batsmen dismissed for ducks.

Nathan Stains led the recovery with 78 runs, with support from Liam Brown (42) as Railways were bowled out for 167.

University's run chase started almost identically to the Railways innings with the top three batsman also out before troubling the scorers.

Number six batsman Hemal Shah and number seven Tom Carty carried the load for University though, with Shah's unbeaten 77 and Carty's 45 not out guiding the Students to a five-wicket win.

Meanwhile, Wests picked up a rare win with a 39-run victory over Souths at Captain Cook Oval.

Captain Shaun McCarthy and Khinjan Shah did well with the bat for Wests, both scoring 40 to help reach 9-198 from their 40 overs.

The pair came together with the score at 4-59 and they were able to put on an important 76-run partnership.

The Souths bowlers also helped out conceding 31 extras.

In reply, Souths made an average start getting along to 3-43.

Chris Wilkes (37) and Chris Smythe (27) steadied the ship but couldn't go on with it.

Souths lost 5-8 as Wests got right into the Magpies' tail and it couldn't wag, being bowled out for 159.

The result leaves Souths as the only team without a win after three rounds of the TCI A grade one-day competition.
