IPSWICH Logan's round three Lord Taverners Cup match remains in the balance following day one on Saturday.
The Hornets restricted Wests to 7-201 from 85 overs at Baxter Oval.
"It was a solid bowling and fielding effort from the boys with the standout being Jackson McQuilty's three great catches at short cover and an assist in a run out," Hornets coach Alan Clarke said.
"We were well led by skipper Matty Elkins in the field and everybody contributed.
"I was pleased with the persistence and consistency of effort shown by the players.''
McQuilty's fielding supported the bowling of Brodie Nickson (2/19) and Cameron Bandy (2/25).
They were well backed up by Lachlan Vellacott (1/18) and Caleb Wendt (1/28).
Ipswich successfully chased down 213 in their opening round match against Wynnum Manly, so will be looking for early wickets when the match resumes on Saturday.
"We need to get the last three wickets quickly and begin the chase," Clarke said.
"If we can occupy the crease long enough, the runs will come.
"As long as we are patient with the bat we're hopeful we'll get the result."
