 After a quick drinks break and a word from coach the boys tightened up the field and slowed the run rate with Greenbank finishing on 11/76. 

Best bowlers from Jimboomba were Aston 3/8 off 3 overs, Rowan 3/9 off 2 overs and Jett with 1/5 off 3 overs. Maiden overs went to Jett and Riley.

Jimboomba came to the crease with Riley and Rowan setting the pace for the game. Greenbank bowlers showed some great line and length to have Jimboomba 6/47 at the 10th over.

With runs hard to come by with Greenbank's skill in the field, it was up to Aston 24 runs and James 7 runs to finish the game on a high. Jimboomba's total score was 8/93. Special mention to Cruz who received ‘Player of The Match’ for his improved bowling and batting during the game and to Tristan who made his top score of the season with 11 runs.
