At Lyrebird Park, Nowra won the toss and elected to bat – with Etherington (87 not out) and Fernie (74) rewarding Grahame Morris’ decision – as they guided their side to 6/212 from their 40 overs.
Jacob Higgins (2/39) was the visitors only multiple wicket taker.
In reply, not one Ex-Servos batsmen reached double figures, as they were all out for 55, in the 22nd over – with Adam Watson (6/21) and Aaron Turner (3/12) doing all the damage.
Elsewhere, despite century and multiple wickets from Hugh Dobson, Berry-Shoalhaven Heads fell to Bomaderry by five wickets at Zealand Oval on Saturday.
Dobson’s 116, which included 13 boundaries and two sixes, steered the Magpies to 169, despite sharp bowling from Tigers’ Ethan Adlington (5/28) and Gary Evans (3/26).
In reply, Mitchell Graham (74) and Harrison Graham (50) helped the Tigers reach the target (5/170) with three balls to spare – despite 2/30 from Hugh Dobson.
At Hanging Rock, Batemans Bay (1/110) were too strong for Bays and Basin (108), winning by nine wickets.
The hosts were led by Andrew Malcolm (2/16) and Pat Griffin (38), while Stuart Dryburg (30) and Rileyt Matthews (1/38) were Basin’s best.
The final game, between Sussex Inlet and North Nowra-Cambewarra, was washed out.
