At Bomaderry Oval, Anthony Johnston’s Tigers won the toss and elected to bat.
Led by an exceptional 73 from 84 balls by Greg Wellington, the hosts posted 6/154 from their 40 overs.
Max Whelan (32) and Johnston (16) also batted strongly for the hosts, while Daniel Crick (2/4) led the way for Norths with the ball.
Robert Haigh (1/20), Ben Seyffer (1/23), Troy Sweet (1/32) and James Cohen (1/37) also claimed wickets for Norths.
In reply, openers James Batson (35) and Paul Davidson (33) got Norths off to the perfect start, before Glenn Tyson (36 not out) and Tobias Hanger (27) got Norths home (7/157) in the 30th over.
Johnston continued his strong all-round game with 3/44, while Whelan (2/21) was also solid.
Unfortunately for Norths, this win wasn’t enough to see them squeeze into the top four, finishing fifth on 42 points.
As such, the top four finalists will be Sussex Inlet (73 points), Bay nan Basin (68), Berry-Shoalhaven Heads (55) and Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemens (47) – with three of the four recording wins on Saturday.
First place finishers Sussex secured their fifth win of the campaign, knocking off Berry by 76 runs at the Thompson Street Sporting Complex.
After being sent in, the hosts posted 192, thanks to Christian Sargood (64) and Daniel Lea (39) – with Daniel Watson (3/20) and Lachlan Duggan (3/23) both taking three wickets each for Berry.
In response, Berry could only muster 116 from their 25.3 overs – despite a handy 45 from Aaron Coutts-Smith.
The chief destroyer for Sussex was Lachlan Adlington with 4/46, while Tane Matson claimed 2/27.
Elsewhere at Lighthouse Oval, Ex-Servos elected to bat first and posted 6/217 from their 40 overs, on the back of half centuries from Luke Jurancic (65), Brandon Booth (61) and Rocky Ninovic (59).
With the white ball, United were best served by Joe Lavalle (3/11) and Malcolm Granger (2/53).
United were gallant in their response, with seven batsmen reaching double figures but they were eventually all out for 182 in the 34th over.
Brett Granger (40) was United’s best with the bat while Ninovic (4/23) and Dylan Higgins-Bell (3/49) did most of the damage for Ex-Servos in the win.
Finally, at Hanging Rock, Basin made light work of Batemans Bay.
The visitors first posted 159, thanks for 43 and 42 not out from Luke Gogerly and Shaun Brooks respectively – despite 3/30 from Lachlan Croke.
In reply, Bay were all out for 91 with Gogerly (4/29), Michael Dolby (3/16) and Troy Cole (3/34) taking the wickets.
These results will see Sussex play Ex-Servos and Basin battle Berry in December 16’s semi-finals.
