It was close, but not close enough again for the crew which made up our Fifth Eleven this season.
The team, which was captained in 2018/19 by Dominic Rettino after being skippered by Paddy Shelton for the previous four seasons, got passed in the final over of the Preliminary Final by Haig Fawkner seven wickets down.
They had made the previous PF, a Grand Final the season before that and the Semi Final before that, but are  yet to salute in the big one.
Skipper Dom tried to get the team over the line in the Prelim with his score of 80, backed up by a 37 from Jesse O'Grady and a 36-run unbeaten stand by Jesse Nankivell-Sandor and Nathan Deery, but our score of 7/225 wasn't quite enough.
Jesse O'Grady with three wickets and three catches, and Dom Rettino with two wickets kept us in the hunt, but we missed out in the final over of the March 2 game.
The guys are keen to back up next season and take it one better - a flag. Well done fellas, we're proud of you.
