The Dumfries side set a total of 169 thanks to 48 from opener Alan Davidson, who was the Annandale Insurance Dumfries Man of the Match, and 46 from Tom McBride who dominated the scoring in the later overs.

In an engrossing finish the bowlers managed to defend that, dismissing the visitors for 146 with four overs left. That was after the visitors had been well placed at 93 for 2.

Spinner Scott Beveridge took four wickets, opening bowler Peter Lojszczyk three and young quick bowler Niall Alexander made an important late breakthrough when he sent the middle stump cartwheeling in his first over and claimed a second wicket in his four overs.
