MACS struggled to form any big partnerships from there on and were dismissed for 152 in the 38th over.

Anstis, 3-15 was the pick of the bowlers. Archie Schrader, 2-14, bowled well and had support from Church, Jonas, Patel, Payne and Shaw who picked up a wicket apiece. Toby Nelson made four catches in the innings.
