With Patong batting first after winning the toss, they managed a respectable 148 runs for the loss of seven wickets from their allotted 20 overs, thanks largely to a valuable 70-run stand between Richard Desmond (21) and Manesh Sadarangani (49).
Laguna also helped the Patong cause with 30 extras including 10 byes and 17 wides.
However, Laguna managed to chase down the total scoring 151 runs from 19.5 overs, edging out their rivals with one ball to spare, with Ian Henry (8 not out) notching up the winning runs.
Laguna now move clear at the top of the table on six points, followed by ICC and Patong on four points, while the Village is yet to get off the mark.
This weekend’s action in the Outrigger T20 league will see the Village looking to register their first win in the competition against second placed ICC on Sunday (September 9).
