SAVION LARA put on a huge 129 not out as Purley beat Horsley & Send by 47 runs on Saturday.
The win helped Purley climb to fourth in the Surrey Championship Division Two.
After losing the toss and being sent to the crease, Horsley & Send's decision to bowl was justified after Randy Gayle bowled out both openers with relative ease.
Shane Patel went for just six before Gayle ensured Stuart Glassington followed shortly after for 14.
However, next in was Lara and he enjoy a great partnership with Adam Windley (54) and finished with 11 fours and two sixes among his 129 not out as Purley declared on 261-5.
Horsley & Send looked to be on target to reach a good total with openers Asmat Ullah and Saleh Mohammed batting well, until Ullah (42) and Mohammed (43) were dismissed in quick succession.
Razi Khan, Tishan Wanigaratne and Shane Patel all impressed with the ball for Purley as Horsley & Send failed to get another man to stay at the crease for more than 30 runs, before eventually skittling them out for 214.
On Saturday, Purley host second-placed Chessington at the Ridge.
