At 5/295 Mosman seemed to be cruising, but in an incredible turn around the Warriors bowlers stuck to their task bowling with good control, taking the last five wickets for eight runs, to have Mosman bowled out for 303 off 92 overs.
Matt Bursa the pick of the Warriors bowlers with 3/32 of 17 overs and was well supported by Tony Clark who took 3/34 off 11.
