The North Huon Warriors Under 15 side hosted Snug in the final round of the roster, with a guaranteed place in the grand final, which they will host next week against Slab Road.
Captain Anthony Harrison won the toss and elected to bat, with the Warriors mixing up the batting order to give the younger players some more experience at the crease, in a game where the outcome would have no bearing on the finals.
Phil Hale (2) and Ollie Coulson opened with the stick, Hale and Lucas Sullivan departing quickly, before Lochie Cordwell joined Coulson at the crease for a 39-run partnership, Coulson eventually dismissed for a well-made 14, Cordwell retiring a couple of overs later for a Warriors top-score of 20.
It was looking to be a low-scoring affair, before Ollie Thomson came in halfway through the 18th over and racked up a quickfire 18 not out, to bring the score up to a respectable 6/90 after their allocated 20.
In reply, it was Brady Harriss and Harry Thomson who opened with the new ball, Thomson coming out from behind the wickets for 10 overs, Ryan Jager donning the gloves for half an innings.
The Warriors opening bowlers bowled tight lines, restricting the run rate well, the Scuds at 0/20 after five overs.
By the end of the 10th over, the Scuds looked to be in a commanding position, at 1/62, requiring 29 runs off 60 balls for victory.
The Warriors tightened up again, Ollie Thomson (1/3 off three, including two maidens) and Jager (2/9 off two) were the best of them.
In another nailbiting finish, the Scuds required eight runs off the last over to win, Jager coming on under pressure to bowl the final over.
Opening with a dot ball and a wicket, clean bowling Tyler Roach, the Warriors couldn’t have asked for a better start.
A three from Corey Chamberlain off the next ball put the Scuds back in with a chance, needing four from two.
Another wicket, cousins Jager and Harrison combining well for the catch, and it was four required off the last ball.
While it was well hit, it was also well-fielded and the Scuds were restricted to two runs, the Warriors home by one run.
