Old Students stunned minor premier Dookie by 19 runs to seal a spot in the C-grade Jim McGregor Shield preliminary finals.
Students batted first at Congupna, but were bowled out in 44 overs for 152.
Tim MacLaughlin (44) and Brent Evans (33) led the way for Students in an innings where only one other batsman reached double figures.
Matt Hodgetts (5-55) made life difficult for Students, while Daniel Freeman chipped in with two wickets.
But it was Evans (6-34) who proved to be the hero, decimating the Dookie batting card for 133.
A lower-order knock from Dookie’s Fred Thompson (37) was not enough to save his side.
The Cats’ batting line-up was no match for Adrian Ingham who produced a seven-wicket haul for a consecutive week to have Mooroopna all-out in 29 overs for 72.
Ingham’s 7-36 means he has 24 wickets in his last four appearances at an average of seven.
Only three Cats batsmen reached double figures, with opening batsman Paul McDonald (26) top scoring.
Central Park-St Brendan’s cruised to victory with seven wickets remaining, but batted to 61 overs to close its innings at 5-180.
Captain Ymer Mehmet (53) top scored for the winning side.
Murchison sent Pine Lodge in to bat, where it was bowled out for 93 in the 42nd over.
Ryan Kearney (29) top scored for the batting side, while Darryn Rowney bowled 12 overs for 4-16.
In reply, Murchison only lasted 48 overs to be all-out for 105, with lower-order batsman Luke Twynstra (36) showing his top-order the way.
The wickets were shared around, but James Lloyd (3-17) claimed the best figures.
In the Lodgers’ second innings, they were rolled for 100 in 24 overs, with Ray Young (3-28) finishing the match with six wickets.
After losing an early wicket, Murchison was able to score at almost five runs an over to cruise to a six-wicket victory.
