The Gold XI won the toss and batted first. They scored 86 runs from 18.3 overs with Lewis Waugh top scoring with 46 off 41 deliveries. Adam Thornton was the pick of the bowlers taking three wickets while conceding only 13 runs.

"After losing against Maroochydore on Saturday [in a regular season fixture] we were always coming in for revenge and try and get one over them again," Gympie captain Josh Brady told the media after the match. "That was always the plan, to come out hard."

Maroochydore's innings got of to a rocky start with both Thornton and Kevin Schulze being dismissed for zero in the early overs of the innings.

"That certainly doesn't help in a run chase," Maroochydore captain Gerard Flegler admitted. "We probably probably lost in the first six overs. Losing four wickets in that first six really put us on the back foot."

Maroochydore didn't go down without a fight, needing only three runs off the last over of their innings. But a victory for them was not to be, losing the last wicket off the second ball of that over.
