In a tough start to the competition, we played Room 14, who were the reigning champs and have been for the last five years running! Beating them by 1 run, meant we were through to the Championship side of the draw. We next played Room 17, then Room 15. We advanced straight to the final due to three teams qualifying for the semis – rooms in a hat, one drawn out and that was us! In the final we were to play our neighbours, Room 8. Room 8 were very sharp in the field, with Room 9 throwing first. Plenty of catches from both teams, but the final tally of runs had Room 9 with 84 and Room 8 with 78. Another nail biting and close game.

At least it was an all Matai final, valuable points won for our syndicate!
