Connor Ziebell and Cameron Daniels finished off the innings with 13 and 14, leaving Brunswick Valley a very good 8 for 268 off 50 overs. Kevin Warid was the pick of the Lismore bowlers with 3–49. Connor Ziebell took a wicket with his 2nd ball then the other opener Tom McMahon followed suit in his opening over, Lismore left reeling at 2–0 then 3–7, Lismore were dismissed for 73 with Connor, Tom and Max Bryant taking two wickets each, Will Barlow 2 for 4 off his two overs.

Lewin Maladay took two catches in  fine wicket keeping as well as captaining the side with distinction, Angus Callan capping a man-of-the match performance also taking three catches.

Brunswick Valley had a great win and are continuing on to show how good a team they are.
