Lost by 5 wkts
 

With a wide choice of bowlers available,captain Peter Hollman won the toss & opted to bat.

Pacific: 87-10 C Jones 32. P Hollman 25. Chadwick 10-5-16-5
Pymmes : 91-5 Shaw 47* P Hollman 6-1-14-2

Mat Patel fell early, but when a cautious 42 had been reached, Hollman was undone by an in swinging leg cutter by his opposite number _ Steve Chadwick. This precipitated a collapse, Mike Alexander having made 10 was involved in another run out. Craig Jones resisted nobly but the rest made either 0 or 1.

Chadwick took 5 all to including David Murray with a jaffa.Ian Lay & Mike Alexander were replaced after 9 overs with only 1 wicket down.Both Hollman & Adrian Palmer took 2 wickets each & succeeded in slowing the rate required from 4.5 to 2.6 per over. Shaw blocked any chance of victory & was merciless with a good eye & hard hitting. The 2nd year running another comprehensive defeat.
