Darcy I'Anson defied the conditions to produce a brilliant match-winning innings for Brock-Burrum on Saturday.
On a day when the rain forced every other game across Cricket Albury-Wodonga's competitions to be abandoned, the players served up an enthralling contest at Brocklesby.
Visitors Lockhart posted 9/129 in 35 overs and then had Brock-Burrum 3/17.
But a masterful 76 from I'Anson, coming off just 60 balls with five fours and two sixes, turned the game.
"Darcy batted superbly," captain Zac Barrenchea said. "He's got such a good eye.
"He knows when he needs to settle down and get through some tough overs but he knows when to accelerate and that's exactly what he did. He put us in an unreal position and he was hitting them so cleanly.
"He charged one of their bowlers and hit it straight over their head for six. It was great to watch.
"The outfield was slow and boundaries weren't coming easily so for Darcy to step up and do that, in a clutch situation, was unbelievable."
