It was first change Buzza, who topped the bowling with his return from a full shift of 10 overs being 3-32. The other Exmouth wicket takers were Sam Harris (2-51 from 10), David Lye (1-41 from 10) and Bob Dawson (1-32 from six).
The Exmouth run chase was wobbling a little on 138-4 when number six batsman Buzza walked out to the wicket, but he was till there at the close, unbeaten on 43 as the Maer men sealed a two wicket win with 11 deliverers of the contest remaining.
Buzza faced 38 balls and struck three fours and two sixes. When Alvin Pollard, batting at 10, joined the all-rounder, Exmouth were 216-8, but Pollard stuck around for 11 deliveries scoring an unbeaten eight to help Buzza see the Maer men over the winning line
