The Old Boys were looking comfortableagainst the First XI when they were just 20 runs away from awin off 10 overs.

In a late collapse, however,the Old Boys lostfive wickets and went into the finalover with the result still in doubt.

First XI bowler Jake Cornish had bowled two maidens in three oversto set up a tense final over.

A no ball and a single meant the Old Boys needed a four to tie and a six to win on the final ballin what was a gripping finish to a classic match.

“In the end we fell short of the win, but it was a good result where the players enjoyed themselves,” he said.

Ryan Campbell scoredwell for the First XI,making 31 off 75, and Jake Cornish took 2-26 as the young boys scored 6-141.

When the Old Boys came out to bat, FirstXI coach Fisher tried something unorthodox, using spinner Ryan Campbell to try to throw off the Old Boys’ openers.

The top scorers for the Old Boys wereMark Toohey with 44 off 73 and Sean Toohey with 32 off 32, as the team achieved 8-141.
