An impressive bowling display from Homers Cricket Club set up its fourth consecutive, one-day premiership in Horsham Cricket Association A Grade on Sunday evening.
Homers defeated Horsham Saints by five wickets to finish the one-day season undefeated and add another premiership in an incredible era of success for the club.
On a rainy day under lights at City Oval, the bowling was pivotal for Homers as they had the Saints all out for 99.
Saints' opener Gary Davidson (28 runs) looked in good touch early in the piece and along with Corey Smith (2) guided the side to 0-32.
But the duo then fell in quick succession, and from there the Saints struggled to find runs against the Homers bowling attack.
Homers captain Jarred Combe said bringing on off-spinner Simon Hopper early in the piece was a game-changing moment.
"The first five or six overs we didn't execute as well as we had planned. They started really well at none for 32 scoring at about one-run a ball," Combe said.
"But we brought on Simon and he took some pace off the ball and it worked perfectly. His first three overs he went for one run.
"He built some pressure and we were able to pick up a few wickets from there.
"To peg them back and have them at 4-40 odd was great."
Hopper conceded just six runs from his eight overs and took the wicket of Saints captain Austin Smith.
He created a potent tandem with opening bowler Craig Britten who took three top-order wickets, including the Saints' key batsmen Gary Davidson and Mark Crafter.
In reply, Adam Atwood (26), Jason Kannar (17), Simon (15) and Chris Hopper (13 not out), all chipped in for Homers to chase down the total after 21 overs with five wickets to spare.
In addition to the handful of veterans playing in their fourth consecutive one-day flag, Homers' youngsters Paddy Mills and Baxter Perry tasted their first senior cricket success in their grand final debuts.
Combe said it was still exciting to secure another flag.
"To cap off our one-day season with a premiership and to go through the season undefeated was definitely a pleasing part of it," he said.
"While we've got a good core group we have to make the most of things - we're just trying to maintain it and keep playing well."
