Tom Spry made an impact with bat and ball to help Exies pick up their first win in four attempts when they took on Hanwood on Saturday evening.
Due to the heat on Saturday afternoon the match was reduced to a 30-over game and after Hanwood won the toss and elected to bat Micheal Crosato and Brad Hornery were able to get their side off to a good start.
The pair were able to get their side to 37 before Crosato (18) was knocked over by Marc Tucker (2/27) while Neil Geltch (2), Hornery (18) and Hanwood captain Charlie Cunial (3) followed closely behind.
With Hanwood sitting on 4/52 after 11 overs, Jason Bertacco and Isaac Campbell looked to get their side back on track.
Over the course of the next seven overs, the pair were able to put on 30-runs before Bertacco (16) became the first victim of Tom Spry.
Spry (3/24) picked up the wickets of Charlie Simpson (7) and Campbell (22) over his next three overs before Jamie Whitworth, and Todd Argus added late runs to see their side push past the 100-mark.
When the 26-run stand between Whitworth (8) and Argus (14*) was ended by Joel Mulder (3/25), Hanwood lost their last three wickets without scoring to be bowled out in the 30th over for 124.
Exies were able to make a solid start with Craig Burge, and Travers Pickmere tasked with seeing off the new ball and got the score to 20 before Argus (2/22) stuck to remove both openers in the space of three overs.
The fall of the openers brought Exies captain Phil Burge and Spry together, and their partnership proved to be the deciding factor between the two sides.
Over the next nine overs Spry and Burge put together a partnership of 67 before Crosato (1/17) was able to take the crucial wicket of Spry (41) to give their side a chance.
Tucker and Burge put on 12 runs before Tucker (4) was caught by Campbell off the bowling of Dean Wynne (1/15) but that was the last of the success for the Hanwood side.
Burge (31*) was joined by Aditha Jayasuriya (4*) were able to guide their side to a six-wicket win with 25 balls remaining.
Exies will now prepare to take on Coro next weekend while Hanwood will have another game under lights when they take on Diggers.
