STAFANIE Taylor's DW People's Choice of Westmoreland kept up their perfect run in the Hotel Four Seasons Women's Twenty20 cricket tournament with a six-wicket win over Zone B rivals St Elizabeth on Saturday.

In reply, DW People's cruised to 123-4 inside 18 overs as Sherene Burnett led with 17 not out and Taylor added 15.
