Berry, in this Shoalhaven District Cricket Association one-day second grade match, made 8/249 and United, at stumps, was all out for 8/157.
It was second wicket partnership from Kane Armstrong and Dylan Cosgrove that hurt United the most.
Armstrong and Cosgrove put on 136 runs and pretty much got Berry headed to victory.
Cosgrove made 78 runs with 10 boundaries and Armstrong’s 61 runs included five boundaries and a six.
Daniel Watson came in lower in the order and his 30 runs with three boundaries, which would have frustrated the United players.
Tony Lavalle and Malcolm Granger took three wickets apiece for United.
United’s run chase got off to a great start when Andrew Eggins and Terry Dorrell put on 77 runs for the first wicket.
Eggins was the first to go but his 45 runs with six boundaries had United headed in the right direction.
Dorrell went not long after and he smashed five boundaries during his 45 runs.
Jed Silver, 24 runs with three boundaries, was the only other United player to reach double figures.
With the ball, Ewen Porteous took four wickets for the home side and John Ulrick got two scalps.
Bay and Basin v Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen's
Bay and Basin did not use the home ground to its advantage against Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen's in their one-day match on Saturday.
The Basin, at Sanctuary Point Oval, elected to bat first and posted a meagre 103 run total.
The Ex-Men cruised to a comfortable seven-wicket win.
Darren O'Keefe did his best for the Basin with his late order 23 runs with two boundaries.
Gary Fuss took three wickets for the Ex-Men and Shane Phillis got two top-order victims.
Sussex Inlet v North Nowra Cambewarra
The North Nowra Cambewarra players, when disaster struck early in their innings, might have thought “it’s not going to be our day”.
Norths, against Sussex Inlet at the Thompson Street Sports Complex, lost its first wicket before any runs were on the scoreboard and its 128 total did not test the home-side too much.
Sussex went onto take the competition points with the loss of only three wickets.
The experienced Paul Davidson tried to steady things for the young Norths side and his 27 runs included one boundary and two sixes.
Tobias Hanger was also on a menacing mood for the visitors and his 26 runs included three boundaries and a six.
Jon Kingston took three wickets for the victors, while Riley Jarrett, Troy Gillespie and Lachlan Adlington got two apiece.
Swing freely was the approach taken by the Sussex batsmen and it worked.
Pat Matson smashed 46 runs with six boundaries and a six, Paul Kezik also belted six boundaries and a six on his way to making 39 runs, while Christian Sargood made an unbeaten 19 runs for Sussex
Batemans Bay v Bomaderry
Bateman Bay proved far too strong when it hosted Bomaderry on Saturday at Hanging Rock Oval.
The Bay made 7/209 in its innings and then destroyed the Bomaderry batting order.
Bomaderry just could not get going and was all out for 68 runs.
Zac Henstock’s polished 72 from 74 balls with 10 boundaries was the highlight of the innings for the home side.
Anthony Mortimer was not in a mood to run between the wickets and his 39 runs for the Bay included eight boundaries.
Max Whelan captured three wickets for Bomaderry and Sebastian Jeffrey got two.
Nicholas Kuncio’s brave 28 runs with four boundaries was the only innings of note for Bomaderry.
Praveen Varghese was the star with the ball for the Bay and he got a four-wicket haul.
