Thirsty Crow overcame a rough start to their innings to score its second Last Man Stands title on Sunday.
After winning the inaugural season of the Wagga competition, captain Craig Wealands played a big hand in helping Thirsty Crow down Union Flaps at Bolton Park.
After both teams came through tight wins in the earlier semi-finals, Union Flaps set an imposing 171 with Nick Fahey scoring a half century.
Kyle Buckley then skittled the Thirsty Crow top order to put his team on top early.
Halfway through the innings Thirsty Crow were 4-82 before Wealands and Neil Brown provided the bulk of the resistance.
Due to competition rules, Wealands was forced to retire when he reached his half century before coming back in late.
Needing five runs off the last four balls, Wealands sealed the win with a massive six.
Thirsty Crow has now qualified for the national championships on the Gold Coast in November.
In the biggest season yet, competition organiser Rob Meggison was thrilled with how finals day went.
“It was a really awesome day,” Meggison said.
“There were some tight games, a good crowd turned out and it was really successful.
Meggison is expecting the next season to be the biggest yet.
The summer series get under way on January 10 and Meggison is hoping 12 teams will take part.
