Macquarie Cricket Club captain Ed Haylock said his side wasn't taking anything for granted heading into the back six rounds of the RSL Whitney Cup on Friday.
Those words proved prophetic for the ladder-leaders, who were downed in an upset by Rugby Cricket Club on Saturday.
Rugby started strong with Roland O'Connor (22) and Ben Wheeler (28) putting together a firm basis for that was built on by middle order partnership Aidan Bennewith (29) and Nathan Munro (40).
Both sides went all out in their effort, with Rugby finishing on 145 after Macquarie ended on 113.
Opening batsman Dan Medway (59) put his run total together quickly, but Rugby struck back through bowlers Lawson Shepherd (3/33) Jakke Gardiner (3/28) and Ben Wheeler (3/19).
The upsets didn't stop there, and while nothing changed on the ladder position wise, RSL Colts shortened the gap between them and second placed CYMS Cougars with a win.
Colts' opener Charlie Kempston (28) put in the best showing for his batting line-up, closely followed by middle order batsman and captain Marty Jeffery (27), for a total of 160/9.
Brock Larance (39) and Thomas Nelson (52) opened the account well for CYMS, but a destructive swath left by Colts' Rhys Beauchamp (5/27) in the middle of CYMS batting order, left them no other chances to build and they finished on 151/10.
Colts next meet Newtown in another grand final, and first round, rematch, while Rugby will next square off with the CYMS Cougars.
