New South Wales 316 (Hughes 124, Rohrer, Paris 4-61) and 5 for 303 (Patterson 129*, Hughes 54) drew with Western Australia 8 for 511 dec (Bancroft 144, Harris 120, Sandhu 3-110)
Scorecard

Kurtis Patterson's unbeaten 129, his second century against Western Australia took New South Wales to the safety of a draw in the day/night Sheffield Shield match at the WACA Ground.

The first had been made at the SCG in November 2011, when an 18-year-old Patterson spanked 157 to become the youngest first-class centurion in Australian cricket history.

It has not all been smooth sailing since for the laconic left-hander, but Patterson's patient defiance of the WA attack showed that at the age of 22 he is maturing into a batsman capable of the stick as well as the twist.

Western Australia's only glimpse of a fourth innings chase for victory had arrived when David Moody bowled Ben Rohrer with sufficient time still left to manufacture a result, but Ryan Carters and Trent Copeland held firm in Patterson's assured company.
