The rest dropped like flies, with Freezmizer taking 2 in the next over, and eventually the side lost all wickets in 10 overs.

CricketMX.com had few problems chasing down the modest target, excluding HSVKing's first ball breakthrough; snaring the wicket of garmabeaneth.
dr sad and grinch2171's partnership was a joy to watch, with most of grinch2171's deliveries either flying out of the stadium, or rolling past the ropes. grinch2171 eventually got out for 69 (53), while dr sad made an unbeaten 105, which earned him the man of the match award.
