George batting at 3 scored quickly with him and Jimmer putting on 85 in 10 overs, Jimmer went on to complete a superb 100 (his first for the 1s) with a 4 through the off side to great applause from his team mates and those watching. He didn't stop there hitting his next 3 balls for 6 but eventually fell for 135 hitting seventeen 4s and five maximums. George made 44 with four 4s and one 6, other double figure scores in the batting come from Si (19) and H (13). Stalbridge finished their innings on 282-6.

With the frontline bowlers bowled out it was down to Jimmer and Joshy to end the innings, Joshy struck in the 46th with a superb caught and bowled to dismiss their number 6 batsman who made 51. The game went to the last over with Dorch needing 5 to win, Joshy held his nerve superbly and with 2 needed off the last ball a leave shot was played with the batsman looking for a wide, with no wide given Stalbridge won by 1 run and claimed 19 points for their 4th win of the season.
